Brazilian jungle

Sorry that should read "apartment" not "jungle". What is it about Brazilian design that brings a smile to my face? The honesty, the simplicity, the sense of everyday style, the joy? I think I would feel right at home here and the abundance of indoor plants is only just a part of the reason. Love the deconstruction, the mix of iconic design pieces and the found, the wonderful light. Apartment renovation in São Paulo by RSRG Arquitetos.

Seaside sandstone

It sits solidly on the site like the sandstone outcrops which are a feature of the Sydney landscape. This substantial family home at Palm Beach by Bentley Design is evocative of beach side living but not in the sense of driftwood and sea foam, more stone against the wind and spray. Beautiful position, beautiful home to suit.

Stalking a 1960s beach house

Dear readers please lend me a squillion dollars so I can buy this Pearl Beach house designed in 1963 by architect Brian Mazlin, with restoration and interior design by TFAD in 2010. It takes me back to a simpler time, when beach houses sat nestled in bush surrounds, a glimpse of sea and the sound of crashing waves all the decoration you really needed. Simple, honest, practical and probably way too expensive for me because of its exclusive enclave position on Sydney's northern beaches. Other than that it's just too perfect. For sale via Modern House.

A modern chalet in Quebec by BOOM TOWN

In the midst of a cedar forest on Lac Gate in Quebec is this wonderful modern chalet designed by Montréal-based architecture firm BOOM TOWN. It is absolutely stunning inside and out. I can imagine enjoying the lake and the outdoor spaces in the summer and hunkering down and hibernating in style and comfort in the winter. (Photos: Angus McRitchie)

Mid Mod Mojo

It was a 1960s house that was too small for its family. They loved their home but they needed more room. Nothing huge and definitely not something that ignored its mid century bones. Enter Melbourne-based Nest Architects. The house grew to meet the family's needs, kept its mid mod mojo and everyone lived happily ever after.
