Gotta love gold

I'm obsessed with gold/brass accents. Mix it with some marble and it's pretty freaking sexy if you ask me. :) Via Michaelis Boyd

Michaelis Boyd

I'm in awe of these spaces by London-based architecture practice Michaelis Boyd. Mostly modern with a bit of traditional mixed in, it's understated and sleek, and the results are pretty much perfection. And I want those sofas in the photo above.

The Nak

A few posts ago there was much debate about a Soviet bunker conversion. Bad history vs. good design. Can new lives and loves erase the horror, the harm? The Nak is a reconverted horse knackery, partly reconstructed to become a private weekender in the bush near Trafalgar in Victoria, Australia. Wolveridge Architects have created a home that is beautiful and functional while sitting solidly in its bush setting like the agricultural/industrial building it once was. The death of horses has given way to new life, new use. Thoughts? Can good adaptive design rehabilitate not just the building but the building's history?

A simple stylish kitchen

Sometimes you don't need all the bells and whistles. Two ovens, fridge the size of a third world country, massive island, slabs and slabs of marble on walls, floors and anywhere, butler's sink big enough to swim in, walk in pantry, flower arranging bench. I'm sure I've forgotten something. Sometimes, many times you just can't afford it even if you want it or your little home just can't fit it in. Sometimes simple is necessary, simple is good, simple is stylish. Like this little kitchen by Luke Stanley Architects.

Up on the roof

We have established that it is Monday. We have also established that I dream of escaping the drudgery of the work day. Perhaps the workplace wouldn't be so bad if I could spend my lunch breaks up on the roof, in a secret work garden. Get away from the everyday. Head for the hill.
