An Ikea employee's apartment in Sweden

There once was a girl from Quebec by the name Geneviève Labbé who studied interior design. After she graduated she ended up moving to Denmark, met and married a lovely Danish boy, and then moved to Sweden where she landed a job working for Ikea on their catalogs and brochures. (DREAM JOB) This is her apartment in Malmö. And no, it's not completely furnished by Ikea. She prefers to mix styles and loves incorporating vintage items in her home. And then I moved in. :) (via Le Soleil)

Black and white and green ...

... and fun and graphic and bold. The showroom for KCL Agencies by Sydney based Designers in the City is big on impact. Pantone's 2013 colour of the year is the star in this monochromatic scheme with the emerald green playing perfectly against the black and white backdrop. Bold pattern wows on arrival but the showroom is relatively calm after climbing the stairs, allowing the company's product to shine. I think this time I really am allowed to say the colour pops .,. and punches and hits and zings.

The landing library

A new kitchen and a staircase to the next floor. A simple design request with a fabulous outcome. Melbourne based Venn Architects believe space is what you make it. Their clever use of the transition up the staircase as a library is elegant and functional with a wonderful sense of space and light. No longer a kitchen diner. Perhaps a kitchen library?

Stalking 1

Down a narrow street in Surry Hills Sydney you will find this monochrome conversion of a former grocery warehouse by Ian Moore Architects. If you were a real life stalker you would find a melange of old bricks, new steel and glass but if you stalk the pages of online real estate sites you will see behind this intriguing facade. The award winning, one bedroom home unfolds over a number of staggered levels. Anything existing is white. Anything new is black. Austere yet refined, controlled yet creative. 19th century meets 21st, industrial becomes residential. Could you live here? Yes? Then follow the link while it lasts and perhaps you'll be the new owner.

The perfect marriage

In a wood in Amagansett, Long Island there is a coming together of architect and client, of the rural building traditions of Long Island and Finnish Design. Three discreet buildings bound together by glass passages. Shingle and siding, rural and industrial, communal and private, view and personal space, polished concrete and painted wood. A marriage of man made and nature, of a building and a home. A perfect marriage. Amagansett House by Bagchee Architects.
