A little extra 

I would absolutely LOVE to have a super long dining table. AWESOME. And the lighting almost send me over the edge. Add in bookcases and chalkboard and I am having heart palpitations. 

I love a mostly modern kitchen...and then I see a kitchen like this and I want to change my mind. The moldings, the windows, the antique furniture as kitchen cabinets, and throw in that massive vintage light fixture and you've got one helluva sweet kitchen.

HeadRoad 1815

Balancing concrete, glass and granite on columns that dig deep into the ground, the architects have opened the building's face to that amazing vista. Such solidity balanced by a desire to run, jump and fly away into the blue.

Can Lis

Can Lis, Jørn Utzon's family home in Majorca built in 1972. Utzon settled in the Balearic Islands after leaving the Sydney Opera project in 1966. A house built using traditional building methods and materials but interpreted by one of the giant's of 20th century architecture. A place for the day to day rituals of living steeped in ancient traditions. The Utzon Foundation carefully restored the by now rundown building between October 2011 and February 2012. A spiritual, almost sensuous space sympathethically brought back to life.
