As cute as a button inside and out. Melbourne, Victoria, Australia guesthouse renovations and interior design by Hearth Studio. To note: I love how they painted over the trim a couple of inches in some rooms and a couple of feet above it in others. A creative and very simple idea to painting a space without really painting a space. (Photos: Sean Fennessy, and more details here).
Welcome to Wednesday. Welcome to hump day. Welcome to my mid week daydream. We're packing our bags and heading to Hudson, New York, to the Rivertown Lodge, a boutique hotel housed, in of all things, an old movie theatre. It's vintage modern meets über cool and it was designed by Brooklyn-based WORKSTEAD. We can sit by the fire in the lobby and chat over coffee or have a drink at the bar but that little nook with the over supply of pillows is mine. A couple for my head, a couple for my feet, one to grab to my belly to balance the book and several to throw at you if you try to steal any.
If truth be told most Australians would live, sleep and eat outdoors. If we have four walls around us at home we scheme and plan for sliding doors and windows that lead onto decks and balconies and patios. We spend thousands on beautiful kitchens then prefer to cook our evening meals on barbecues. We are even known to pile on the woolies and stand out there cooking in the middle of winter. Which is why we all dream of having the perfect outdoor room like this clever extension in Taringa, Brisbane by Nielsen Workshop. The great outdoors have never looked so stylish.
