When modern is warm

I had to share another to-die-for home designed by the talented folks of cityhomeCOLLECTIVE. Modern and a bit mid-century, with black and brass accents to add some drama and wood to keep things warm. I want that kitchen soooo badly, but I would settle for the rug in the space above.

Delicious indecision

I can't make up my mind. Which room makes my spine tingle the most?The living room? The kitchen? The bedroom? Perhaps the bathroom? Why choose? This Pimlico house by Rose Uniacke is divine.

Contemporary coastal

"Seaside Residence was a partial renovation of a grand Georgian home. Our clients have a young family with 2 boys. An active life by the coast is ideal for them, and they wanted a home that was calm, but filled with personality - something young and fresh, that still honoured the traditional architectural style of their heritage house."

Melbourne-based interior designer Sally Caroline opened up the floorplan and created a sophisticated, contemporary look with statement furniture pieces and a colour palette that references the seaside location with soft neutrals and splashes of blue.

Eclectic with a touch of gothic

I absolutely adore this house but I have really no idea what to call this. The architecture looks at times mid-century, or Spanish with a bit of 70's hotel in the backyard. The decor style is retro mixed with modern and ethnic and a bit gothic..... Well, whatever this is I FREAKING LOVE IT!!! I have been a fan of Salt Lake City's cityhomeCOLLECTIVE for a while now as they have such a unique, edgy, bold style and this project has to be my absolute favourite.

Stalking a concept

I'm in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor's marks ... and I love it. I've included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I'd like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don't dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.
