Colour coded

Gisbert Pöppler is an architect and interior designer based in Berlin whose portfolio is....jaw-dropping. Exuberant flourishes are tempered with Northern European restraint, creating harmonious hybrids of unexpected elegance. If you are one to err on the side of colour, then feast your eyes on these spaces. Art deco, mid-century mixed with every colour combination you could think of. And somehow, it just works. But I think that's because the architecture is as bold and ornate as the colours. Attempt this in your cookie-cutter house in the burbs and you will likely fail miserably.

You had me at hello

You are definitely no wallflower. You are just a bit loud and proud. Always a happy face on display it's what's hidden within that has me wondering. What are you hiding? I bet you're warm and embracing, modern but old fashioned in your hospitality. I know you used to be a shop house but you've had a bit of work done recently. Please let me in. I need to get to know you more. Hello House by Melbourne based OOF! Architecture.

Steve Herud

I have not been this enthralled with a photographer who shoots commercial spaces in a long time, but Steve Herud is a genius when it comes to capturing funky restaurants, hotels and rental apartments. These spaces are gorgeous despite being commercial, and provide tons of inspiration for residential applications. (These photos include Hotel Superbude, Pappa e Ciccia restaurant, No Fire No Glory coffee shop, the FvF + Vitra apartment, Hotel Das Stue, 25 Hours Wien Hotel)
