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.

A compact + modern apartment in Moscow

A contrast of white plaster and raw, rust-washed concrete. Painted brick counterbalances sleek kitchen cabinetry. A simple, bright, modernist approach was taken by architecture firm Crosby Studios with this 590 sq ft Soviet era apartment. The addition of plants throughout make this an A+ home in my book.

A modern stone farmhouse in South Africa

On the outskirts of the town of Marble Hall in South Africa, bordered by natural bush, this modern family home references the raw, simple beauty of traditional South African farm architecture. With its solid stone and concrete walls, the house turns its back on the public providing protection for the private areas within. Still with all its solidity and mass the spaces within are surprising light and open. House Kleynhans by Pretoria-based Thomas Gouws Architects.
