Triplex Victoires

It was a while back that Jo featured a few of the photos from this home, and when I stumbled across it on architect Laurent Bourgoiswebsite recently my heart melted and I thought it deserved a complete post. It is quite clear that I am becoming soft for traditional spaces that really highlight and celebrate original architectural details now that I finally have a home where I can celebrate in my way (adoring my wainscoting, curved ceilings, archways, leaded and stained glass windows). I don't really know what exactly it is about this house, only that it has a very magical quality to it. And its elegance is indescribable.

Southampton Residence

I lost my heart when I saw the shingles and then the rest of the house blew my mind. A totally "un-Hamptons" Hamptons home by Fox-Nahem. Luxuriously comfortable, elegant, livable and packed with personality.

Elsternwick Residence

In this home renovation by Australian architecture firm Flack Studio, some original history is maintained while updating with some modern touches. And I love it. And the crazy stair carpet is explained: The charm of this house lies in its exceptionally cool architectural heritage. As a late 1960s build by Holgar + Holgar, nothing short of a contemporary redux of 1970s interior style would do it justice. Boldly black angular lines in the staircase and window frames juxtapose brilliantly against the original luxuriant curves of the building. Ultra slick, tightly grid-patterned bathroom tiling is a confident nod to the modernists’ geometric interests, while the original tiger print wool carpeting remains an incredible focal point of a modern family home that celebrates its pimping pad origins.

York House

Oh York House by Patrick Lewis Architects, HOW I LOVE THEE!!!York House is an imposing mansion block on Upper Montagu Street in Marylebone, Central London. Our client purchased a large 2nd floor apartment, which had not been refurbished for over 45 years. Significant structural works were undertaken to produce an elegant apartment, which suited contemporary living requirements. Bedrooms were converted into ensuite bathrooms in a considerate manner without marginalizing the purity of the plan. Lastly, the living space was combined and the kitchen was moved away from the dark internal lightwell and relocated at the front of the property enjoying wonderful light and views. The palette was developed during visits to reclamation yards throughout Oxfordshire and London and the majority of materials where sourced from them. The strip flooring was reclaimed from the BBC in White City, Encaustic handmade tiles from Tuscany, Georgian Shutters from Oxford. We designed the kitchen to be an eclectic mix of different element from the French Armoire, to the concrete worktop, to industrial ductwork all made by local crafts people.
