Regent Street warehouse

It's no secret that Jo is a fan of Australian architectural firm Techne (see here, and here, and here). Well, now I'm jumping on this bandwagon and raising a white flag. I surrender to their unbelievable talent and the ultra cool designs they have come up with. Like this warehouse. Dear gawd this is just so damn perfect. It is bright and fresh and clean. All of the black details (windows, beams, stairs) with the white walls and concrete and light wood floors is such a beautiful graphic combination. An absolute dream home.

Karaköy Rooms 

Situated in a 100 year old building in Istanbul is the boutique hotel, Karaköy Rooms. The elegant renovation by Turkish design firm RunArchitecture is a modern take on a once grand past. White walls, often with dark grey ceilings, are balanced by wooden floors. Where original mouldings are missing they are simply replaced or referenced with paint. Perhaps the standout feature of each room is the exposed copper piping that carries the electrical supply. Simply modern and historically fabulous.

The exhibitionist

Stark minimalism in black and white. Glass walls like a gold fish bowl. Everything on show. Reflective surfaces bouncing light. Hard, lean, buffed. The perfect exhibitionist. But wait there is a softer side. Concealed lighting throws rough bricks into relief. Solid planks warm walls. Could you? Would you? Are you a secret exhibitionist. Bold living by Montreal interior designer Anne Sophie Goneau.

Loft love

OMG I love this loft (apparently that of designer Paola Navone)! The row of windows, the original wood flooring, the modular kitchen separated my a row of tall cabinets, the white painted stone, the massive sofa and table to fit my entire family!!!! (Via Jean-Marc Palisse)

Jean-Marc Palisse

Moody, dramatic and captivating. I would say these 3 words accurately describe the incredible interior photography of Jean-Marc Palisse. WHOA - I just noticed the flooring in the second photo. How freaking brilliant to use 2 different types of wood.
