Chelsea Hing encore

Oh the beautiful interiors that Melbourne interior designer Chelsea Hing creates. If this is what she comes up with in real life can you imagine what loveliness is spinning around in her mind? Colour and texture and pattern all stylishly combined to make sure that, if this was your home, you'd break into a wide smile every time you walked through the door.

Camellas-Lloret

Take me away to the south of France. I've had enough of this week and it's only Thursday! I want to run away to a place in the sun, with beautiful old rooms filled with stylish bits and bobs found at the brocantes. I want to be welcomed by hosts who know and love the area so well but who have themselves escaped the hustle and bustle to their own little piece of paradise. Take me away to somewhere like Camellas-Lloret, a charming B&B in the village of Montreal. Whether in one of the charming rooms in the main house or the garden apartment I know I would be blissfully happy.

The Riverhouse

Trees, river, windows, views, spaciousness....what more could you want? This 6,500 sq ft home in Coxsackie, NY on the Hudson River is unbelieveable, inside and out. I can't imagine having all those windows to be able to enjoy the outdoors 365 days a year. It could even convince me to enjoy winter. ;) Architect: BWArchitects (previous features here and here)+ interior: Poonam Khanna + most photos: William Waldron for Architectural Digest.

Minimalism in Melbourne

An imposing, modern extension to an old brick house in Fitzroy, Melbourne appears as if a metal box perches precariously on the roof. A series of levels cascading together with short flights of stairs and a double height void allow for "open plan" living which is light filled yet discreet. Playing with the juxtaposition of contrasts, positive and negative, open and closed, old and new has created a striking, minimalist home by Julie Firkin Architects.

Artilleriet Studio 

Pop-up shops, particularly those staged in apartment spaces, come and go with regularity these days. The concept is tried and tested, after all who wouldn't want to be seduced into purchasing beautiful goods in inspiring interiors. Just like shopping your fabulously stylish friend's house. One could almost be forgiven for yawning "ho hum" at the mention of another such retail space ... except this is no ordinary pop-up shop. Oh no the new Artilleriet Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden is so breathtaking that the old chestnut about moving into the shop and never leaving has never held so true. I'll even take the dog.
