Stalking restrained

Restrained, limited loveliness. Elegant sufficiency. A few simple pieces, a small space, a monochromatic palette and then peace. I wish I could live like this but I sit at the centre of clutter chaos. Stalking in Darlinghurst, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

Blair Harris - a welcoming townhouse

I love every inch of this Cobble Hill townhouse designed by Blair Harris. The black trim in the dining room, the dark floors, the black and white kitchen complete with subway tiles, butcherblock counter and exposed beams and that beautiful blue (I'm considering a similar colour for my kitchen). Fresh and sophisticated, while very welcoming.

High design and optical illusions. How did they do that sink? Look very closely and you can work it bout. A sliver of minimalist style by i29.

Dramatically monochromatic

I love black and white spaces, and the home of Sydney fashion designer Charlie Brown is a great representation of how to do black and white with elegance and class. It seems to often be too easy to turn this colour scheme into something far too modern or cold. Here it works beautifully (minus the annoying post-processing). Via Vogue Living Australia, photos by Hugh Stewart. (P.S. Her custom-made antler and crystal chandelier is giving me some ideas...)
