Robson Rak Architects - Toorak

What a beautiful home by Australian architecture and design firm Robson Rak. It is a 1930's home in Melbourne's Toorak that already had beautiful original details (shutters, cornices, skirting boards) - this firm simply needed to update it and gave it a modern edge. The result is chic and sleek, and in the hottest colour palette of black and white. Stunning!

Bedroom love

I love this bedroom. The simplicity. The lack of colour. The rumpled cotton bedding. Whatever the hell that is going on in the windows. Via Domino

Studio Revolution

 Jemy Massie and Emily Ellis are the California interior designers behind Studio Revolution. They call their look "hipsticated, gritty, dramatic, not-too-pretty". I love it. Touches of Scandinavian, modern, industrial, and lots of black - my favourite colour.

The latest happenings at 47 Park Avenue

It has been ages since I featured one of my favourite blogs, 47 Park Avenue (see here and here). Michael (and his partner Jonathan) are the proud owners of my dream home, and have been renovating and decorating it with so much love, creativity and chicness that I am blown away each time I see more of their progress. Take this bathroom for example. They had not touched it since moving in and Michael finally decided to have a go at it - on the cheap. Because how long can you live with a nasty bathroom containing carpeting (GAH!) and floral chintz?!

Michael ripped out the carpet, re-faced the tub with leftover chipboard (one of my favourite materials), used leftover paint on the wall, floor and ceiling, and picked up some tile paint to paint over the ghastly flowers. All Michael ended up purchasing (aside from the paint) was the light fixture and linen basket. Gorg!!!
