Oh yessssss!

I swear I have been staring at this photo for 10 minutes. What a dreamy space. The fireplace, moldings, and mirror are to die for, and then add in that velvet sofa...*SIGH*

This makes me want a black bedroom desperately. Throw in a gorgeous marble fireplace and a Serge Mouille light and I would never ever get out of bed.

This is just cool.

Lakeside classic 

I was going to write about the juxtaposition of the drama of a site and the mundane of everyday living but then I read the architect's descriprtion and it was just so right ...

Holidays beside the waters edge, water skiing and trout fishing, are wonderful memories for families. The bach is a keeper of these memories, which are at stake when work is done to preserve and update it. 

It was a process of saving and improving, of folding in another layer of history in a way that would not obliterate the past. The result is a nest of humble kiwi buildings, some parts new some original, that will now cope admirably with the demands of the future.

A favourite bedroom

Gawd I love this. I need streaky matte black walls somewhere. Such gorgeous subtle texture. Via Derek Swalwell.

Beauty reworked

Harbour Edge House c.1910 reworked and extended by Fearon Hay Architects. An ethereal beauty. White floors, white walls, floating white drapes stirred by the breeze from the water beyond. Simplified and sensual. It's love at first sight for me.
