Monochromatic and moody this art deco apartment in Sydney's Potts Point is raw yet polished with its stripped back floors and exposed brick in counterpoint to ornate plaster ceilings and slick modern kitchen. An oasis in the bustling inner-city by design studio Lawless & Meyerson.


An ode to Paris

Another interior by Parisian design firm Kierszbaum Intérieurs. Another celebration of colour and texture, eras and styles. Another fabulous French home.

The elephant in the room

Or should that be the skeleton on the ceiling? It may be the deal breaker if you want to come on my virtual getaway to this loft style apartment in Tribeca, New York which ticks all the boxes. Exposed brick walls, light streaming in the the tall windows, a mini jungle, curios on industrial style shelves, great kitchen ... and the skeleton above the dining table. I've been staring at it for ages trying to work out what the model is actually of. Ichthyosaur? Prehistoric razor toothed dolphin? A cousin of the Loch Ness Monster? It would certainly make for an interesting dinner party conversation. Franklin Place is available through onefinestay

The joy of being French

I can think of a number of words to describe this 240m2 apartment in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, colourful, eclectic, family friendly, stylish, but the word that sticks in my mind is joyous ... or perhaps riot. A joyous riot of colour and pattern and style. Imagine the delight every morning when you awake to such a wonderful home. By Alexandre Goulet, Olivia Charpentier and Dev Gupta of Paris and Shanghai-based GCG Architectes.

Another favourite

Sometimes I feel I'm trying on other people's homes like clothes in a shop. Does this look good on me? Is it a good fit? Often what looks good on the rack just doesn't work when you try it on. Sometimes what looks great in the magazines, the trends, the hottest looks, the must haves for 2016 for your home are just like the cheap and cheerful fashion fads that we all rush to buy and then wonder why we ever did. Like my last post I think I would be very comfortable in this West Village apartment by New York-based Bachman Brown Design. It too is all about making the most of the architectural bones and a collection of furniture and favourite pieces gathered over time. A second "second skin" for today.
