Madeleine Blanchfield and the Coogee House

Renovations took this Coogee, Sydney duplex apartment from ground floor flat to modern house with great outdoor living. New layout, new kitchen and new bathrooms within, pool and entertaining space out, all the time respecting the building's history by combining old and new. A fabulous example of making the most of what you've go. New work from Madeleine Blanchfield Architects.

Moving to the country

It's about tradition and craftsmanship, about simple beauty and honesty, living life how you want without the chains of fads and fashion. Perhaps you don't have to move to the country to achieve it. Perhaps it's just a shift in your thinking. Greek Revival renovation by architect Rafe Churchill and interior designer Heidi Hendricks.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it better be somewhere stylish. Oh my! I'd love to work here. A former chocolate factory in Berlin now home to an online card game company by Munich-based architectural firm IFUB*.

Sunday hangouts at a restaurant

I was in Montreal Thursday to get the remainder of my lace tattoo sleeve completed (a word of advice - don't get your elbow tattooed) and we were going to stop at a restaurant to eat a decent meal but then ended up just heading home and eating crap at a truck stop. Now I'm kicking myself for not having tried Fiorellino. This Italian restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. That graphic floor, all the spectacular lighting, those chairs.... And if the food is anything like the interior, then WHOA. Designed by Atelier Moderno (previous features here and here).

A compact + modern apartment in Moscow

A contrast of white plaster and raw, rust-washed concrete. Painted brick counterbalances sleek kitchen cabinetry. A simple, bright, modernist approach was taken by architecture firm Crosby Studios with this 590 sq ft Soviet era apartment. The addition of plants throughout make this an A+ home in my book. (More of their work here, here and here)
