Entries in black and white (201)
Trevor Ciona & Curtis Elmy of Atmosphere Interior Design rock my world. This talented duo from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (yes folks, they are Canadian) are Hollywood Regency-ing the sh*t out of homes like it's nobody's business. I am mesmerized by their portfolio and have several of their projects to share with you all. This first one is completely dreamy. It's bold, graphic, and in my absolute favourite colour combo of black, white and yellow. HELLS YEAH!
Like night and day. Black and white. Inside and out. Front and back. Old and new. Victorian era house and modern extension for sale in Richmond, Melbourne. The dark moody spaces appeal while I think it may be the lighting that leaves me a little cold in the open plan kitchen and family room. Do you see the must have "I've made it!" Australian house accessory? It's the outdoor kitchen. We're crazy for them here. Link here while it lasts.
Minimalism again? Oh yes! But instead of stark, cold white there is a richness, a glow. Simple clean lines but multi-layered with different surfaces and textures. Spartan but elegant. Who said minimalism was cold? What is devoid of surface pattern is enriched by the interplay of materials. Stepped House by Australian architects Russell & George.
Continuing my fascination with minimalist homes around the world. A Belgian mansion style house that has seen better days, lost some of its character with one too many renovations. The old exterior is kept but at the back the minimalist magic begins. The renovation was about aligning and subtracting. Consolidating and eliminating. It's black but it's white. It has historical references but modern credentials. It's about light and space and a new life. It's House J & M by Bruno Vanbesien.
