House Amanda

For those who are into black and white with pops of colour, this house in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa is for you. House Amanda by Inhouse. The brief was to design a house that would celebrate local contemporary art and allow the owners to entertain guests frequently. The house had to accommodate a mature family and be equally livable by day and night. It was important for the house to embrace the area in which it was located, so a sensitive architectural design was one of the criteria. The house needed to embrace the exterior with its beautiful views of the Hout Bay valley and surrounding mountains.

Westhampton beach playhouse

The New York based design team of Chango & Co. continue to blow me away with their spectacular spaces. This home is by far one of my favourites. It helps that it is a beach house. You can pretty much get away with anything at a client's second home - like pineapple wallpaper and REALLY bright yellow paint. The tricky part is having "fun" designing a giant five bedroom beach house that needs a major overhaul (and a lot of minor construction) on a ten-week timeline. So with complete creative freedom, but very little time, we set out to design a home that would serve as an escape from the city and the restraints of apartment living for this young couple and their three beautiful (and very playful) children. From the front porch, this home looks like any other house in the quiet family neighborhood that surrounds it. When the door you enter reveals a banana yellow interior, the foyer leads to a formal dining room with pineapple patterned walls, then into a candy-colored kitchen… you know you’re in the midst of people who know how to have fun. Each room was crafted around the vividly colorful personalities in the family to encourage as much unrestrained joy & unconfined playtime as possible and the end result is a celebration of whimsy & lightness of spirit… a true playhouse for kids, big and small alike.
