I wanted to share another project by Hauvette & Madani that I am totally in love with. I am not really a fan of the colour turquoise but OMG it works really well in this apartment. With lots of black and white to keep it grounded and modern, having the same colour scheme run throughout a small space really helps make it seem larger and keeps a nice flow going. And WHOA - check out the dining room ceiling light fixture. How divine!
For those who are into black and white with pops of colour, this house in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa is for you. House Amanda by Inhouse. The brief was to design a house that would celebrate local contemporary art and allow the owners to entertain guests frequently. The house had to accommodate a mature family and be equally livable by day and night. It was important for the house to embrace the area in which it was located, so a sensitive architectural design was one of the criteria. The house needed to embrace the exterior with its beautiful views of the Hout Bay valley and surrounding mountains.
Mr. Waller, Andrew Waller, Mr. Interior Design Master...whatever you want to call him, this pied-à-terre is a little slice of heaven in white, black and grey. Love all the muted tones here. It is so calming and dare I say, the perfect bachelor pad. (Photos: Maree Homer)
You can never go wrong with black and white, and in this case it makes for a stunning exterior of a home that was known as being the neighbourhood "ugly duckling". Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, the owners of this home bought the house despite the real estate agent admitting she thought no one would buy it. After 4 years, the home became a simple, beautiful modern retreat with a mix of contrasting textures. And the cats seem to love it. I am totally smitten with the last photo. Via Visi. Photos: Dook.
