Timeless restraint

Interior designer Margaret Naeve Parker of M Naeve combines contemporary pieces with antiques found in her travels in Belgium, France and Scandinavia. Hers is a restrained approach with an emphasis on texture and a muted palette. What strikes me most is even with her love of beautiful, old pieces these rooms feel fresh and modern, timeless and sophisticated.

Stalking monochrome Multiplicity in Melbourne

It's another case of stalking déjà vu. Architecturally designed homes we have featured previously on the blog seem to be hitting the market. Today I'm stalking this Brunswick East house by Melbourne-based architectural studio Multiplicity. If I remember correctly I was quite taken by the storage system in the kitchen. (You can see it in its architect's portfolio life here.) Now it's even more fabulous with its "styling for sale" by inside story, the latest collaboration between Lynda Gardener and Belle Hemming. Love, love, love the Grant Featherstone Numero modular chairs in the lounge area. I'm biased though because I have the same ones. Link for this wonderful heritage cottage and its ultra-modern extension here while it lasts.

The best shades of pink

I spotted this home on Architectural Digest Spain yesterday and had to share because I am looking for bolder colour ideas for my dining room and THIS IS IT!!! Designed by Maximiliano Crovato, this 60 m2 home in São Paulo uses pinks throughout and they are absolutely stunning shades of a sort of dusty coral pink and a brighter fuschia shade. Paired with purple and red accents, it's bold and unexpected and super fabulous!

Working on a Saturday

As I say time after time, if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere that looks stylish ... and is full of fabulous clothing, accessories and homewares sourced locally and from around the world. The brief for the design of this Melbourne store was to create a cosy, intimate space with that feeling of casually stepping into someone’s home.

Spaces of note

I was perusing sköna hem this morning and came across these spaces that caught my eye. Awesomeness in the form of a fat Pug, some stacks of tied up old weathered books (I want to do this in my living room), a cozy living room and an eclectic kitchen (love the plaster treatment on the wall and sewing machine table base).
