Family townhouse redo

"The Lorimer Street Townhouse is a three-story, twenty-five foot wide, two-family house located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Every wall, ceiling, stair, floor and window of the house was replaced in the extensive renovation. The result is an open, loft-like home for a family of four. A custom, steel and solid wood tread stair divides the Parlor Level into a Living Room side at the street front and a Dining and Kitchen side at the rear of the building with garden access through 3 new, patio doors. Existing wood joists were exposed on the Parlor Level with insulation added to the underside of the floors above. Reclaimed floors compliment the existing joists and add to the rustic feel of this urban home."

A massive redo but the results are outstanding. Love the bathroom. Love the industrial vibe of the exposed ceilings, those floors and the central steel staircase. By Elizabeth Roberts and Ensemble Architecture.

The loft list

Light filled. Tick. Huge open plan. Tick. Steel framed windows. Tick. White painted bricks and white washed floors. Tick tick. Cool artwork, fab furniture, a statement fireplace and even the obligatory accessory, the swing. Tick all those boxes. There is a definite loft love list that we keep here at Desire to Inspire and this Harrison St. interior, in the heart of Manhattan's TriBeCa, by Søren Rose Studio is definitely a success.

Saturday get-together

Saturdays are for leisurely get-togethers with friends. Breakfast and a large cup of coffee to get the body in gear. (You know that Aussies can't function without their cappuccino, flat white or latte fix in the morning.) Late brunch because last night went on a little too long. Even a cocktail hour wind down after a long day of doing nothing much. I'd love if this espresso and cocktail bar was just down the road from my gaff. I'd certainly be on a first name basis with the staff. Love the marble hex tile creeping up the exposed brick wall and the reclaimed brass shelving designed to look like a bar cart suspended from the ceiling.

A summer cottage in Denmark

I am back with more monochromatic design but this one I could not resist. This summer cottage in Skagen, Denmark by architecture firm Ardess. The exterior in weathered cedar has such gorgeous tones of grey, and the wood interior is just as breathtaking. The amazing thing about this cottage is it is under 600 sq ft and was designed to accommodate 2 families. I know there would be fighting over who gets each summer weekend if this was in my family!
