What's that saying about a mullet hair cut? All business up the front and party out the back. I'm stalking a charming old house in Elsternwick, Melbourne with a thoroughly modern extension. I love how the original facade maintains the existing streetscape but the family can express their design personality loud and proud just behind. Link here while it lasts.
Ninou Etienne of Fusion D is all about the fusion of drop dead gorgeous original architecture in dwellings around Bordeaux, France and the modernist sensibilities of her clients. In this home Ninou added graphic elements with tile and wallpaper for some drama and playfulness. You walk through the door and BOOM!
There's something subliminal going on with my posts so far this week. Beach houses and holiday rental accommodation, accommodation and houses by the sea. Perhaps I need some time off? A holiday in a beach house? Or perhaps it's just where the interwebs have taken me this week. Like this beautiful home at Onetangi Beach by New Zealand design firm Sumich Chaplin Architects. Open the doors and drink in that view.
The latest from Australia's premiere luxury holiday accommodation purveyor, Contemporary Hotels, has me hankering for a little escape to Sydney. This light filled two bedroom corner apartment in a warehouse conversion in Surry Hills by Infinite Design would be a stylish inner city base to explore the sights and tastes of this exciting city. I can't pack my bags fast enough.
