What was once a summer home built in the 8os in South Bohemia, Czech Republic is now an updated and completed renovated primary residence for a young family. The main goal of the house's redesign was to keep its simple form and to create a connection between the nature outside and the interior. Yes it is simple but it is really beautiful. Look at that view from the upstairs desk area. Magical. By B² Architecture, photos by Alexandra Timpau.
Every month an email arrives from Inside Out magazine's Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam and every month I get excited. The sneak peeks from inside the latest issue of the magazine are always amazing. Today she sent my dream home. I have wanted this particular space ever since I first spotted it in a previous incarnation as Lynda Gardener's home. Now it belongs to someone else (boo hoo not me) and I think I love it even more.
This is the home of artist Saskia Folk – whose "pick and mix style" is encapsulated by all the highly original items tucked into her place. There's a couch decked in "country check", a giant ice-cream light guarding the bottom of her stairs, a kitchen island bench made from old basketball flooring and kitchen cabinetry constructed from old meter boxes found in the Australian outback. Styling by Heather Nette King, photography by Derek Swalwell, from March issue of Inside Out.
Saskia you'll have to move out because I'm moving on in! Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on Zinio, Google Play, the Apple Newsstand and Nook.
