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.

Dark shadows bright light

Hiding silently in the shadows of moss covered trees, dark walls blend seamlessly with old growth. Enter the door and all changes. Wide walls of windows capture the light throwing black and white interiors into stark relief. Wooden accents warm and burnish. Retro meets modern. Light versus dark. Sharp angles against the softening canopy of mature trees. The Arboretum Residence remodel by Portland, Oregon based Skylab Architects.

Stalking black and white

A small terrace house in Paddington, Sydney provides plenty of inspiration for those who like their interiors black and white. Somehow they manage to squeeze 3 bedrooms (although they are not using them as such), 2 bathrooms and a flow through dining, kitchen, living space into this small inner city footprint. Tight yes but the simple colour palette, sleek surfaces and walls that open out to courtyards and the sky expand the sense of space. I must admit my favourite room is the bathroom. Graphic and chic. The atrium kitchen is clever too. Link here while it lasts.

Jimmy Schönning favourites

As promised, here are some of my favourite spaces from Jimmy Schönning's portfolio. 

I love everything about this kitchen - the colour scheme, the black tiles, the massive vintage light fixture, the table and bench, the fun DIY dining space lighting, the massive knob on the fridge...the only problem is I would lose my sh*t over trying to keep everything clean with all that open storage.

I love huge decks. LOVE. The table is amazing. I want my next house to have a black exterior. And the number on the door is graphic and cool. 

Everyone has had these ugly/boring mirrored sliding closets in at least one place they've lived...what a simple and effective way to de-gross them. 

Beautiful colours and rustic vibe. I love burlap/linen fabrics. Especially when wrinkled.
