A simple beach house in Costa Rica

I have another project from a Polish interior designer to share with you. Magda of 2kul Interior Design sent photos of a beautiful beach house in Costa Rica. Is a simple project, but maybe, with everything that is happening last days simple is not a bad thing. Project is in the middle of nowhere ;), around Avellana beach in Costa Rica. Not a big budget, not much stores around and qualified workers. So we use anything that we found and nature gave us. Bark of a palm tree gives us material to make chandelier above the stairs, beach sticks and wood from the ocean - all the other decorations, lamps structures, handmade 'deer' on a wall. Palets that been left after construction become furnitures. Had my mother and her skills around so ask to make this huge hanging black and white lamp that you can see in the corner of a room. This goes to show with a bit of ingenuity and some found objects, you can create a wonderful space with next to no budget. For the record Magda, your mom has talent - I would buy that light fixture!

The terrace house

Light filled and beautifully bright this terrace house in Woollahra, Sydney is only 3 meters wide. Poppy and Charlotte O’Neil of POCO Designs have used white extensively within the open plan design to stretch the house is the mind's eye. A wall of glass floods both floors with sunlight and blurs the barrier between inside and out. A luxe living area is grounded with greys and warmed with gold and red accents. Contemporary and traditional, sophisticated and warm.

A house near Berlin

I wanted to share another project by Loft Szczecin, where simplicity is the key, allowing beautiful furnishings and lighting to take centre stage. The hardwood floors are pretty incredible too. (Speaking of hardwood floors, my living and dining room floors and staircase are being refinished on Tuesday. Can't wait - BUH BYE orange!!! Going to stay with my folks during the process and leaving the cats here to survive in the basement and kitchen...this should be interesting)

Modern take on an old worker's cottage

A contemporary extension to an existing character residential cottage in Brisbane, Queensland where it was important to retain the integrity of the original 1906 cottage while providing two levels of extra living space. Love the integration of inside and out including the sliding window walls and the now you see it, now you don't bath. Wooloowin House by bureau^proberts.

Amber bathrooms

I want that bathroom above desperately. Ok, and every bathroom below. My bathroom is still driving me nuts on a daily basis and these are some fantastic inspiration for its eventual makeover. I would love to do a combination of black, white, walnut, marble, and brass. Glorious! All by none other than  Amber Interiors
