A perfectly styled apartment

A while back during a random google search I came across a feature on the Australian website mecho of a modern beach style apartment in Clovelly, Australia. Styled by Allison Warner and photographed by Natalie Hunfalvay, the following photos are so beautiful and the spaces soooo perfectly styled. Simply gorgeous.

Reader's home

The other day Carolyn emailed with some adorable photos of her English bulldog for the next pet post (stay tuned Monday!), and also sent along some photos of her Victorian home in Leslieville, Toronto. Her house has great bones - some exposed brick, cool angled windows, loft, rooftop deck and her eclectic style brings to it all little bit 'o funk. Thanks for sharing with us Carolyn! (P.S. Although there's nothing wrong with Carolyn's photos, I was shocked to hear she's friends with photographer Virginia MacDonald and hasn't had Virginia photograph it for her!)

Hola!

 

Just a little teaser of tomorrow's post. Cecilia emailed with a link to the most fabulous photographer's website and I think I have a new crush. Then today I was trawling through the newsagent looking for new magazines (Hi my name is Jo and I'm a interior design magazine addict) and picked up the latest Interiores magazine. Latest in Australia that is. Flicking through the pages then "Hola!" there are the pictures from my new photographer crush. Serendipity don't you think? I won't reveal all, not yet. Tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow .... Oh before I forget does anyone know of if Spanish magazine Interiores has a website? I can't get enough of this magazine lately. FABULOUS!  And Cecilia I know you have a blog but you never left a link for me to follow. Leave a comment below and we will all come over and visit :)

An apartment renaissance in Singapore

  

Desire to Inspire covers all corners of the world from the UK to the Seychelles and Alaska to New Zealand. Homes in the USA, Australia, Norway and today Singapore. As any of you who have travelled to this small nation in Asia will know, many of the population live in highrise apartments. Row after row of them.  Stanley Tham and Kusnin Tan are KNQ Associates and their specialty is what they call Home Rejuvenation, transforming Singapore's cookie cutter apartments into something special. We've featured their work before but Stan sent over one of their latest projects. Based on their client's love of all things Renaissance, KNQ has taken a modern twist on the sumptuousness of that time. My favourite? The dark and brooding dressing room. Imagine being able to indulge your fashion fetish in your spare room! Lots of befores and afters after the jump. And for the full story go to their blog Home Rejuvenation.

(P.S. Home Rejuvenation are once again running their 10 Most Influential Design Bloggers poll. Just by nominating you are in the running for one of three Wallpaper* subscriptions. More info here. )

  

No I'm starting in the wrong spot. Let's go back to the beginning. The entry then the living spaces, the guest bedroom come music room and finally the master bedroom.

Warren Heath

I came across the photography of South African-based Warren Heath recently in one of the many shelter magazines sitting on my coffee table (not sure which one) and was immediately taken with the bright spaces he captures. Beauty and warmth is emphasized with sun streaming through the windows. And hot guy strategically perched on a sofa or leaning against a wall can't help but lighten the mood.
