A monochrome family home in Israel

A limited colour and material palette certainly doesn't restrict the style of this family home in Israel. Whites, greys and black play against bleached wood, concrete and interestingly a statement bamboo staircase. Love the double height public areas with light pouring in and the patio extending to the pool area. A beautiful home for four by Kfar Vitkin, Israel based Neuman Hayner Architects.

The Bunker

If a concrete home leaves us cold we'll often describe it disparagingly as a bunker. So what happens when that concrete home is actually a bunker? If it's this penthouse apartment atop a WWII above ground bunker in Hamburg, Germany what could have been sterile and oppressive is instead raw, warm and sophisticated. The loft-style space has four metre floor-to-ceiling windows, is filled with contemporary designer pieces and has two big balconies offering amazing views over the city. What makes this beautiful apartment even more exciting is that it is part of the luxury vacation accommodation offered through Welcome Beyond. It's available from March 2017. In the meantime we can daydream of a getaway to help us through the Friday grind.

Soft loft by Lucyna Kołodziejska

I have featured MANY interior design projects by Polish designer Lucyna Kołodziejska over the years but this one is hands down my favourite. This "soft loft" is located in Gdynia on the Polish coast. Home to a couple and their toddler, they wanted the look of a New York loft so concrete and bricks were exposed, vintage radiators and new flooring with a rustic look helped with the loft vibe, along with some vintage furnishings to outfit the space. The homeowners even got creative and made the sink cabinet in one of the bathrooms. I adore the accents of green (yay plants!) throughout, and with black/white/grey the colour scheme is spot on. A++++

Nooks and crannies

"... a series of elegant, open plan and light filled spaces conceived as a series of nooks from the scale of a room down to the home for a favourite bowl."

I love the kitchen in this extension of a Victorian-era terrace house. MDF, cast concrete, cement tiles, stainless steel and birch faced plywood create a modern, practical and stylsih kitchen. Best part? That bench seat and window looking out to the garden. Nook House by London-based Mustard Architects.

Potts Point Apartment

I love Potts Point. I think it's my favourite Sydney suburb. Full of history, close to the action and with that frisson of seediness meets money. The perfect base for exploring the harbour city. Now if I could just organise a few days away instead of daydreaming in front of my computer screen I might just have to stay in this fabulous apartment available through Contemporary Hotels. A stylish marriage of old and new.
