Frame House

When modern architecture and black comes together and produces something that dreams are made of. The Frame House Melbourne by Carr Design Group. Situated on a large block in Melbourne, the family home exposes little to the street. Behind the textured stucco wall a striking house is revealed within a lush secret garden. The rhythm of the colonnade and overall proportions evoke the elegance of Georgian architecture. Conversely the house is bold and contemporary with its robust steel frame supporting a finely detailed metal screen and zinc cladding.

Eclectic clients breed unconventional spaces

When the folks of cityhomeCOLLECTIVE were asked by their quirky clients (whom they had sold this house to) for help with decorating their living room, dining room and patio, they went all out. I freaking love every bit of this transformation. GO BOLD OR GO HOME! The theme was sharp, but creative…nothing too precious. A game of indoor/outdoor basketball is as common as a glass of wine in the open air. We went to work in attempting to mirror this eclectic gang's vibe with bold colors and textures: a hot pink and grey chair in silk and bouclé (think: Chanel suit), black walls with gold metallic niches, a teal over-dyed rug, and rich green, velvet floor-to-ceiling curtains. A thousand statement details that amalgamated flawlessly. Ever aware of the importance of juxtaposing pieces, we employed graphic black and white wallpaper and brass accents, and used green and pink neon rods to create a piece above the dining table. And–in what would eventually become a bit of an obsession for us as the project progressed–we got pillows. Pillows on pillows, and the crazier the better (ie. Bill Murray in a general's coat). Outside it's just as funky and totally awesome. 

Make sure you spot the dog before going further :)

Stalking a little black terrace house

Not much over 4m wide but with its modern renovation and addition, this wooden terrace house in Balmain, Sydney manges to squeeze in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and openplan living on a small inner city block. A little bit industrial, a little bit scandi modern and all with light pouring in through skyligfhts and voids. I wouldn't call it tiny but it certainly is compact. Link here while it lasts.

Kraków  Apartment

Industrial meets loft meets Scandinavian all tied together with a rough luxe, burnt out ruin twist. Like wearing an edgy outfit with the hems dragging in the dirt is how I would describe this 90 sqm apartment renovation in Kraków, Poland by design firm projekt i. Exposed brick, roughly painted white or almost smoke stained black, is juxtaposed with sleek white kitchen or softened with fabric swathes and knots. Custom soft furnishings and lighting by sister firm taftyli add an edge to the scheme.
