Stalking on a Saturday

Stalking a stylish renovation of an art deco apartment in Double Bay, Sydney. Tastefully restrained with water views and drowning in beautiful light. One little surprise though. The ensuite or rather where the owners have built it. Balcony bathing anyone? Perfect for the exhibitionists. The rest of us can roll down the blinds. Link here while it lasts.

JVA summary

You may recall this stunning modern farmhouse Jo blogged not too long ago, or this almost upside down house in the dunes. They were the creations of Norwegian architects Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL. I happened upon their website recently and found all sorts of other projects they designed that knocked my socks off. I thought I'd share with you a mish-mash of some of my favourite spaces and exteriors. So beautiful. (LOVE the angled window set-up in the 3rd photo - perfect hangout for my cats!)

The ancient, the artisan and the Apple era

New work from San Francisco based interior designer Antonio Martins. The Atelier is the room he has created for the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, opening Saturday. Layers of design, layers of textures and finishes, layers of meaning. A small space that spins a story through the most basic of materials, burlap, but is refined and elegant in the telling. A man's space, an artisan's lair, a collector's sanctuary. A place away and yet in the present, a place beyond and always in contact with the world. A beautiful place.

Mariah O'Brien - home #2

This is another favourite home designed by Mariah O'Brien. It's located in Santa Monica and it's just as inviting, energetic and eclectic as the last home - but not quite as bright. And the cute Boston Terrier is a bonus. :)
