It is hard to believe this was once a school. This modern, bright and airy loft in Amsterdam is now home to a family of five. The teacher’s lounge became bedrooms and the classroom became the living space. The kitchen is fantastic! I especially love the wall of open storage over the sink cabinet section. Such a fun place to raise kids in. No worries about the floors getting scratched up (it's concrete) or one of the kids hiding somewhere and wrecking havoc (their toys are stashed in the play area under the stairs). By Standard Studio.
New from Sydney-based design duo Christopher Glanville and Megan Burns of CM Studio the Paddington Project builds on the success of their Cross Street project. Known for their elegant, liveable, modern spaces the studio has partnered with leading Australian furniture retailer Living Edge to create the Paddington Project, a quintessential Sydney terrace renovated with sophisticated minimalist interiors and styling. Here's the twist. It's all for sale. From the Marc Newson For Noritake Espresso Cups to the MO Bed to the artwork to the house.
Additional collaborators include Sydney Florist Doctor Cooper whose floral arrangements will adorn some events throughout the project and Sebastian Goldspink who has curated a collection of contemporary Sydney artists to be represented in the space. Design Open Days Friday 27th / Saturday 28th / Sunday 29th November and Friday 4th / Saturday 5th / Sunday 6th December 1pm - 5pm. The Paddington Project is at 51 Oately Rd, Paddington.
I spotted this year-round cottage on Décormag yesterday and had to share because this is my dream summer getaway....except it needs to be lake-fronted. And maybe in a warmer climate, like Mexico. ;) This stunner is located in the Eastern Townships of Québec and was designed by Atelier Barda. I am dying over the black stained wood exterior, and the simplicity of the interior is all you need in a second residence. And a must in a dwelling with surroundings this beautiful - those large windows framing scenes of the forest as art. (Photos: Yves Lefebvre)
