Heaven is a pumphouse

I have always said that New Zealand is God's country. Perhaps I need to look a little closer to home, to the beautiful, unspoilt wilderness of Tasmania. Today we are heading to heaven in a pumphouse. Decommissioned in the 90s the Lake St Clair hydroelectric pumphouse lay empty having defeated a number of developers until Simon Currant stepped in in 2004. Finally in 2015 after a decade of hard work Pumphouse Point, a boutique hotel of 18 rooms, designed by Cumulus Studio, opened its doors. Two buildings ,one onshore the other at the end of the flume (jetty), provide the accommodation and facilities. The rooms are contemporary cool with a nod to the industrial but really it's all about the wilderness. And truly it's a slice of paradise.

Easy style by Anthony Sibbald

Like a second skin or a favourite old sweater, it's about casual family living without pretension but bags of easy going style. Effortless and comfortable doesn't mean complicated design. It's slipped covered sofas and slouchy pillows, crisp white walls and streamlined kitchens, luxurious bathrooms that are as simple to clean as they are good looking. Just like this apartment in Palermo, Buenos Aires by Argentinian design firm Anthony Sibbald.

A townhome by Juliette Byrne

Juliette Byrne is an architect and interior designer from London and this Fulham townhome she designed is alot of fun, with accents of pink and teal for a homeowner who likes it bold. It is sophisticated and youthful with modern furnishings and blingy bits to add to the wow factor (as if the colour wasn't enough - go big or go home!)

The White Room

White, blanched, chalky, snowy, milky, ivory, clean, spotless, pale, light, colourless, pure, unblemished, achromatic, without hue. The White Room by Barcelona-based Italian architects CaSA is a minimalist holiday apartment in Sitges, Spain just a few steps from the beach. At just 36 sq m with 11 sq m of terrace this tiny, shiny white box was renovated on a very small budget and is now a light filled refuge, a peaceful place for introspection for its owner, a French Art historian and curator, professor at the Sorbonne University.

Concrete and wood

Concrete, wood, brick, floor to ceiling windows....sounds like the making of a sweet apartment I would say. This space by Brazilian architecture firm Play Arquitetura (the folks that brought you the cat apartment) just needs a few rugs to warm up the space and a few more accessories and it is pretty much on point.
