It's raining here. Raining, raining, raining. In biblical quantities. What better time to plonk myself in front of the computer and real estate stalk? I'm in Bondi, Sydney. A contemporary home by architect Uri Turgeman and interior designer Shellee Gordoun. A series of rooms in open plan stretching either side of a cental garden atrium and leading out to the garden. Casual elegance with interest brought in through finishes and texture. Light, bright, white and ... blue. My imagination is running riot. How would this space look with red or green or black or yellow? A good example of how a neutral base lends itself to painterly strokes of colour to change things up. Link here while it lasts.
Two designs by Melbourne based interior designer Travis Walton. One residential, one commercial. The first, the Cloverdale Residence, is a contemporary home with a limited colour palette that is lifted with luxury finishes of marble, travertine tiling and European Oak. The open plan design is perfect for modern Australian living. The second design, Threefold , an acclaimed Melbourne eatery and supplier involved the gut renovation of an historic hotel building in Flinders Lane. French bistro meets urban industrial, inviting, intimate, a mix of the original and the new. Stealing ideas from here for my next kitchen.
