Sensory delight by Minosa

Large voids, over sized spaces and lots of cantilevers is what this latest project by Minosa Design is all about.The design team at Minosa was commissioned to create a variety of interior spaces that would be better suited to the over-sized and radical architectural style of the home. The kitchen space was extended and an over-sized, custom-designed and –made table included. Easily seating 10, and extending to seat 14 when needed, the table has become the setting for some memorable social events. A visually interesting and invigorating colour scheme was chosen for the interior spaces with complementary oranges and greens adding shots of brilliant hues to draw the eye. Repeated at various intervals throughout the house, the carefully chosen hits of colour create a cohesive story within the home. The wet areas all feature Liberian limestone on floors and walls. In the powder room, an essence of luxury is assured thanks to the inclusion of an incredible Bisazza Endimonie mosaic feature wall which, when paired with the Puddle washbasin by Minosa, creates the epitome of visual impact. The remaining bathrooms feature the Minosa Milana bench and Elssia drawer units within a stunning light-and-dark colour scheme. A purpose-built home theatre is fitted out in deeper shades to create a moody, more cosseted environment. Complemented by a 1000-bottle wine cellar and bar area, it is a comfortable and inviting space in which to relax.

Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

Copa Luxury Beach House

Take me away. Please, please take me away. It's Monday. I'm swamped. I can't remember when I last had a day off and I just want to melt into a comfy chair, read a soppy book (really just fall asleep) and forget all the stress and deadlines. Here. Here is perfect. Copa Luxury Beach House. I don't need to weave a story. The pictures tell it all. Literally.

Stalking Armadale

Hiding behind a prim and proper facade is something just a little out of the box. Several boxes in fact. Cantilevered and almost tumbling down to the pool. A modern extension to an historic home. A home with drama. Stalking expensive boxes in Armadale, Victoria. Link here while it lasts.
