Where else but Australia would a home owner sacrifice existing living space when renovating so they can squeeze in a pool in the backyard. This Little Napier Street house in Paddington, Sydney by Bureau SRH combines two historic terrace houses to create a family home where the line between inside and out is blurred and the kids just want to have fun. Happy Australia Day!
If you loved the apartment I featured yesterday then you are in luck. Here is a sampling from several projects by Samantha Hauvette who helped on that project, and her partner in crime and design, Lucas Madani. The talent of this pair (known as Hauvette & Madani)is impressive, and their designs result in refined, elegant luxury with modern touches to keep things fresh and new.
I have fallen in love with this 18th century apartment in the heart of Le Marais, Paris. Designed by interior architect Margaux Beja, it is a stunning blend of old-world and modern. With a Scandinavian feel, this space is cozy and bright. A beautiful walnut wall hides spaces like the laundry and bathroom, and a glass wall separates the bedroom from main living space allowing light to flow through. It is pretty much perfection.
