Toluca Lake home by Barbie Palomino

I really love this home in Toluca Lake, LA designed by Barbie Palomino. It is eclectic with bits of drama including unique wall art, accent colours used in rugs and textiles, gallery walls and some black. And featuring an adorable little pooch for added awesomeness.

Smooth operator

"Located in Daylesford, the Central Springs house was designed to create a sense of warmth and comfort, often needed in the cool climate setting. A refined palette of white washed timber boards, and polished fresco walls are used to produce a sophisticated take on the traditional country home."

I love the play of smooth and rough as well as the calm of the greige colour palette. (I almost want to rub my hands all over those polished walls.) Central Springs by Adam Kane Architects.

High contrast

With its high contrast detail - a black and white palette and interesting play of texture, soft on hard texture, this Melbourne residence involved a renovation and extension to the double fronted Victorian on Winter Street in Malvern for two professionals and their growing family. The furniture includes a mix of designer furniture and lighting, eclectic collected vintage pieces and custom-made items designed by the designers B.E Architecture.

A conversion with endless potential

Though this home is not really furnished I had to share because I have been dreaming about living in a rough, industrial, loft-like home for at least the past 20 years. Nothing like this exists in Ottawa so I can keep dreaming but if someone has £1,995,000 and is looking for something in London to put your stamp on, scoop this one up! Never mind that it looks like rats were eating the kitchen cupboards, and the painted floorboards are a bit rough...this 3 bedroom, 2,000 sq ft over 4 floors conversion from furniture-restoration workshops built in 1905 has SUCH AMAZING BONES. AH MAH GAWD!!! Listing here via The Modern House.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say week after week ... if you have to drag yourself inro work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. This week I'd have no problems doing overtime at these Liftopia offices by Katie Martinez Design.
