Stalking old and new in Kew

Classic and contemporary. Old and new. Dark and light. High, high, high and a touch of low. (Is that an IKEA rug I spy in the study?) I'm not sure if this one has been styled down, pared back for the photo shoot or not. I love the steel doors in the old part of the house and the sleek lines of the modern extension when viewed against the Edwardian gingerbread cottage lines of the old. Stalking old and new in Melbourne. Link here while it lasts.

Happy place

Sometimes when I'm overwhelmed by work, exhausted and almost ready to burst into tired tears I go to my virtual happy place. Today (and for a very long time in fact) my happy place is this bathroom by Made by Cohen. You would have seen it before on the blog . You may have even saved it to your inspiration files. Now excuse me as I shut the door. I have a virtual bath to soak in.

Just down the lane

This extension to a Victorian house plays with volumes and materials, providing the young family who lives there with new living areas, a studio space and new rear entry from the laneway. Another clever design by Rob Kennon Architects. You never really know what is just down the lane.
