Working on a Saturday

Except I'm not. I'm tucked up in bed with a bad cold. I even had a special post planned for today but that will have to wait a few more days. I do know that if I did have to drag my sick and sorry self into work today I'd love it to be somewhere as stylin' as this workplace, Metrix Consulting by Melbourne-based interior design studio We are Huntley. What is bringing a smile to my face? A knot of cables as "art" on a vintage set of lockers. A tongue-in-cheek celebration of the problem we all have and try to ignore.

Södermalm Heights 

I have much love for the eccentricity of London design agency Minale + Mann. This project is another favourite of mine. M+M was commissioned to refurbish this dilapidated 18th century apartment in the centre of Stockholm’s Sodermalm district. The apartment was restored to its former glory, with tiled Swedish fireplaces and stunning original oil painted ceilings. Furniture was custom fitted, and the kitchen and bathrooms were finished in Swedish sand ash to enhance our eclectic mix of antiques and artwork. A 70s jukebox was even converted into a whisky bar! (Previous M+M features here and here)

Uptown prewar

Lawd half mursey I adore this New York dwelling by architecture firm raad studio. The dark floors, beautiful (original I presume) moldings, neutral colour scheme with just enough black, and OMG that kitchen! This is the definition of a considered home. It is fairly simple yet every inch is just as it should be. I was sitting here prepping this post wondering if I could live here. I would LOVE to live here but I can't imagine going thrifting and coming home with something totally random...where would it go?

Dreaming

I'd love to throw myself onto that daybed, glass of bubbly in hand and relive the beautiful lunch I was invited to last Wednesday. What a way to spend a hump day. Hop on over to my page and find out why I could quite happily turn back time ... if only in my dreams.

Ofist - Y House

As serene as the blue, blue ocean that is framed by its windows. As stylish as its fashion industry owners. The perfect summer retreat in the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, the Y House by Istanbul-based architectural firm Ofist.
