Dark and light in a modern apartment

This renovated 3 bedroom apartment in Sydney, Australia is sleek and modern with a black and white colour scheme. This combination makes for a very chic and dramatic pad. The open concept space is punctuated with a kitchen design that I absolutely love - as much as I love a fabulous kitchen, it's even more fabuolus when it doesn't really look like a kitchen at first glance (I thought it was a dressing room!). By POCO Designs.

Island Retreat

It's American Gothic (painting) meets American Pickers (television). It's dramatic and moody and quirky and fun.It's intimate spaces and soaring ceilings. It's theatre and performance, oasis and sanctuary. It's John Mellencamp's Island Retreat in South Carolina by interior designer Monique Gibson and it's fabulous.

Monochrome mastery

It's Scandi monochrome done right. A stark, limited palette warmed by exposed brick accents and a rug of muted jewel colours. As for the piano! Love it. Private residence by Helsinki-based interior designer Laura Seppänen.

A French bistro style kitchen

Dear gawd I adore this kitchen also by Qanuk Interiors Inc.! This is what I envision what my existing tiny kitchen has the potential to be. And you can never go wrong with a french bistro style. Subway tile (I love this longer, thinner version) with dark grout is always a winner. Add in some black steel & glass shelving for a not-so-typical open shelving option and dark lower cabinets and you have a winner! Industrial style lighting installed on the hood fan - why not if lacking space? I always love a good banquette and this one is VERY GOOD. Black leather + gorg brass light fixture = LOVE!!!
