More lakeside living

Simple yet stylish with a monochromatic palette warmed by the earthiness of wood and splashes of colour, this lakeside home, again by Andrew Brown, has a more relaxed, holiday home feel than the mid-century treehouse of my previous post. This is a waterside family home, beautiful yet practical, the perfect getaway from the clamour of city life.

A sophisticated treehouse by the lake

Often the emphasis of a lake house is on the watery surrounds. Often but not always.

Studio DB - Oak Hill

I was excited to spot a new project among the portfolio of one of my favourite architecture & design firms Studio DB. Turns out it is the 3,500 sq ft Amenia, NY weekend home of principals Damian and Britt Zunino. (Pretty sweet for a weekend home!) I adore everything about this house - the blue framed entryway, all of the light fixtures, the curve of the kitchen backsplash, the openness to the outdoors, the Ellie Cahsman floral wallpaper, the marble hex tiles inset around the bathtub...and on and on and on...(Photos: Preston Schlebusch)

Except this chicken coop is so wonderful I might just move a sofa in for me. A House for Hens, the Chookingham Palace, a mini modernist marvel by Brisbane-based Myers Ellyett.

Gambling den to family home

A former office and gambling joint reinvented as a family home. This stunning loft with its industrial materials palette of exposed brick and concrete is warmed by beautiful old wooden doors and floors. Highlights for me? The bath, all the storage, the shutters and, of course, that brick. De Korendrager by Dutch interior design and branding agency TANK.
