Carefully curated 

Gallerist Yuri Psinakis turned to designer Mark McCullough (unfortunately no website yet) when it came time to turn his 3 floor loft in the Soma area of San Francisco from cookie cutter new build into a stylish and sophisticated home. McCullough has created a number of intimate spaces within the box like space using a mature colour palette and rich layering of textures. Psinakis then added the finishing touches from carefully curating an enviable art collection to the smart tableaus dotted around his home. No sterile art gallery existence here but a rich still life for everyday living.

The photos by Lynn Kloythanomsup of Architectural Black. Wonderful!

A bit of colour goes a long way

I have been on a neutral kick lately but I do appreciate when designs incorporate a bit of rustic with splashes of colour. This 97 m² apartment in the south of São Paulo, Brazil blends both beautifully. (Via Casa.com.br)

Marie-Laure Helmkampf

When I stumbled upon the portfolio of interior designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf I instantly fell in love. Located in the South of France, Marie-Laure has designed some spectacular rustic homes that are so incredibly dreamy. Her neutral colour stories, natural fabrics and modern mixed with classic furnishings and fixtures is perfection. I could live in any of these spaces exactly as they are.

Stalking rich brick

3 levels of Paddington, Sydney terrace house redesigned as a luxurious inner city pad. Rough brick walls sit alongside velvet, leather, silk and crystal while in the kitchen Calcutta marble meets polished concrete. Rising through it all the star of the show is the glass and steel staircase. A house that needs more sympathetic photography to really convince me but oh my the staircase against that wall .... brilliant. Link here while it lasts.

LENS°ASS

Rough luxe, rustic yet modern, traditional married with minimalism. Indoor melds with outdoor, concrete and stainless steel, glass and pebbles and everything washed with beautiful natural light. The gallery and dwelling of Valerie Traan in Antwerp, Belgium by LENS°ASS Architect. Subtle beauty, the preservation of the old and the juxtaposition of the modern in a sympathetic way and always the presence of repeating patterns of brick or herringbone or block. After the jump a few more images from the firm's design of a GP surgery in an old brick barn like structure.
