Boston Common Town House

A six-storey 19th century Beacon Hill townhouse has been extensively renovated to provide a modern layout with contemporary materials while retaining historical features such as fireplaces, windows and oval staircase. The contrast of "modern and historic elements is played out with the juxtaposition of materials, patterns, and forms." An understanding of contemporary family life and a respect for an historic past meet perfectly in this project by Boston-based Hacin + Associates.

A church conversion in London

Yes folks, it is another church conversion here on DTI, because Jo and I love a good conversion and churches have such incredible, dramatic architecture. This church is 19th century with a gothic vibe, and features 4 bedrooms each with their own bathrooms, a specially commissioned kitchen, hand painted columns, gloriously huge arched windows, blackened oak herringbone floor (dying over this!!) and a small courtyard. This is by far one of my favourite church conversions we have featured. A new location on the Shoot Factory roster.

Main Street Oriental Rugs

I love having rugs scattered throughout my house. They are such an easy way to make a space extra cozy, and a bonus is they keep your toesies warm in the winter and as I discovered last week while emptying out my main floor, are AMAZING at keeping the noise levels down by absorbing sound. I have a few in my living room (one is under my desk so my chair doesn't ruin the floor), one by the kitchen sink to make dish washing a little less annoying, and I want to put one on my side of the bed so when I wake up my feet don't freeze. Main Street Oriental Rugs is a great source for oriental rugs. With a storefront in Ellicott City, Maryland, they also have an online shop, an Etsy store and you can find them on Twitter and Instagram. They carry over 3,000 rugs - high quality, hand-knotted, 100% wool and/or silk, Persian, Oriental, and contemporary style. And depending on your preference they stock both vintage and new rugs. (They even offer cleaning, repair, and restoration services if you're in the area). Here is just a small sample of what you'll find at Main Street Oriental Rugs...

Working on a Saturday

Simple lines. Clean aesthetics. Fabulous loft space. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then fingers crossed it's somewhere as stylish as this. The Melbourne offices of digital agency Evolution 7 by Hecker Guthrie.


Happy Friday!

Because it's Friday, and because this is the last day I have guys in my house disrupting the peace and making a huge dusty mess (my newly stained grey floors look incredible - sneak peek on Instagram)....enjoy some eye candy from one of my favourite sources, KK Living.
