Tirry Cindy and Tom Callebaut are the designers behind tcct, and interior architecture/design firm from Belgium. They are very in tune to their surroundings and how to create maximum impact with minimal spaces. Their spaces speak volumes without being too aggressive...except maybe that top photo. :) Have a peek in their portfolio - they have even designed a chapel that is unlike any chapel I've ever seen.
Too cool! I mean, really, too cool. If I wanted to be a hipster with an apartment to match, if I wanted to be a cool dude on the scene then I think I have found the pad. (OK I think I just gave away my dweeb, nerd status by using words like "hipster", "cool" and "dude".) But I don't care. Look .... a top floor art deco flat in Manly, Sydney. There are even water glimpses. The cafes are just down the road. My new life beckons. A bright, young space for a bright, young thing. I'd beg to keep the furniture. It would complete my hipster transformation. Is it wrong to crave this apartment and this lifestyle at my age? Real estate stalking for a life that isn't mine. Link here while it lasts.
Amorfo - amorphous, formless, the raw material. Amorfo - the Italian interdisciplinary design firm that explores architecture, interior design, installations, graphics and events. So many of us have seen that home in Elle Decoration and Real Living magazines but I'm drawn to so many facets of their work including their shop fitouts. Rooms where the art of the space and layers of meaning within the design mean just as much as the functional concerns. A minimal stage where product and person are the performance.
Karin, a devoted DTI reader from Umeå, Sweden, is selling her apartment and sent us a link to the real estate listing. It is a tiny studio that has been completely renovated. It's adorable, and perfect for someone without a lot of stuff - which is SO not me. Although how fun would it be to have a little pied-à-terre in Sweden! I love the little alcove bedroom with handy open clothes storage.
