Robert Austin Gonzalez

Clever use of space with interesting storage solutions. Midcentury meets contemporary, modern urban with a clean lines. New York interior designer Robert Austin Gonzalez delivers rooms that scream stylish Big Apple apartment. I personally want the carved timber panel, a great counterpoint to the midcentury modern vibe. Clever TV solutions too. While your at his website you must check out his furniture collection particularly the Grace range. Sculptural pieces so sexy and sinuous. Yum!

Reader request - bookshelves

Sigrid from Norway emailed with a reader request that I thought I'd tackle today, because it's an easy one. :) "I love library and rooms and walls full with bookshelves. I would be honoured if you could post some pictures of rooms and walls full with bookshelves." I would give anything to have a library, a room filled with floor to ceiling bookcases to fill with my ever-growing collection of shelter mags and books. I love to see how people cope with their own book and mag collections. Here are some rooms where large collections are easily stored away.

Frederik Vercruysse

Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Whether a stunning space, the mundane and everyday or the down right weird, Belgian photographer Frederik Vercruysse has the touch. Images are spare but more revealing because of this. It's a minimalist approach. No tricks, no frou-frou just a winning shot every time. (Please interior design gods, if I'm good, can I please live in that first photo? Please?)

Reader's home

Ann-Marie and Oliver emailed us recently wanting to share their renovated London home with us. It's a Victorian cottage that they completely gutted and extended (and fortunately they included some before photos). The decor is stunning - all light woods, creamy and white walls, gorgeous white kitchen with butcherblock countertops....there's SO MUCH to love in this home. Such simple and natural spaces that easily please the eye. Fantastic work Ann-Marie and Oliver - you guys should be really proud of your hard work!

Sydney Dance Lounge

As promised another project by Villa & Villa. This time the Sydney Dance Lounge. Beautifully set in an historic waterfront location on Sydney Harbour it's a blend of classic and contemporary. The stunning photography again by Anson Smart is equal to this stunning space. Perhaps the perfect spot for a DTI get together?
