Entries in black and white (260)
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.
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.
It's been a while since I first blogged the sweet pad of Swedish stylist/designer Jimmy Schönning, and I think an update is in order. His work is fabulous as always, if not better! Jimmy is obsessed with black, white and green interiors...and plants. Nothing wrong with this combo - it's fresh, modern and timeless. I've saved some favourite spaces of his for a post later today so stay tuned!
Techné - to make poetically. I had to return to this Melbourne firm's work for another dose of inspiration. Creative, contemporary, edgy and exciting this home is a bright and cheery ode to family life. Both dark and colourful choruses break the sunny white providing contrast and interest, tying the old to the new. Hang it! I'll stop trying to wax lyrical. I just need to say it's fabulous!.
