Renee's loft - part 1

I am absolutely, completely, unquestionably, positively in love with this loft. Every square inch. I'm drooling and having heart palpitations. It is located in the Netherlands and is the home of Renee Arns, stylist and one of the owners for Out Of The Blue Concept Store. Her friend Paulina Arcklin took these gorgeous photos that make me love this loft even more - if that's possible. More loft goodness in my next post. (And OMG her cats match the decor!)

Getting inspiration down at the pub

We don't always feature hospitality design on Desire to Inspire but when there are so many ideas that can translate easily to a smaller, more intimate domestic space then we just have to share. I'm dipping into the portfolio of Sydney design firm Alexander & CO again. Their design for The Sunset Room at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is as beautiful as it is functional. Coastal chic mixed with the found and the vintage all with a limited palette layered with texture. Colour provided by flowers and foliage in bright green demijohns draws the eye from space to space. Talk about getting inspiration down at the pub.

A light filled galley kitchen

I love this light filled kitchen that provides the link between the old and new in this inner-city Sydney terrace house. Reclaimed bricks and rustic timber shelf balance the sleek modern lines and smooth stone benchtop of the galley kitchen. Light tumbles in from the skylight while the transition from traditional dining room to the modern alteration is made via worn sandstone steps. Finally the space reaches a small but stylish courtyard. Such a beautiful space for cooking. By Paddington based design firm Alexander & CO.

Simon Bajada encore

Photographer Simon Bajada's photos are a dream. I featured his work back in July and felt the need for a second dose. Such beautiful spaces, and captured perfectly with light and shadows battling it out for the viewer's attention.

Mothersill

We are huge fans of Bates Masi Architects (previous posts here), so I had to share yet another one of their spectacular projects. This one is a 6000 sq ft vacation home located on 2.3 acres in Water Mill, New York. Located on a creek-front property, the site contains two culturally significant structures designed by Andrew Geller and a diversity of landscape plantings. The two Geller structures, a small house and studio, were built in 1962. Common to Geller’s architecture, a boardwalk connects the two structures. A conservation easement on the property protects the two Geller structures, Yew garden and iris, while allowing for the addition of a new main house. The owners requested a design that would unify these disparate elements. I adore the boardwalks - I have always had a thing for decks so this is a total dream for me, and such a great way to join all of the elements on the property.
