Working on a Saturday

Is it really working if your job is at an award winning winery? I would love to be an employee at the Beresford Cellar Door in Australia's McLaren Vale. Actually I lie. I would love to be a visitor at the Beresford Cellar Door. Can I try the 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon? Design by Enoki.


Industrial luxury 

Two floors of sophisticated, urban living with a limited colour palette dictated by the industrial materials used throughout. Concrete, steel and glass warmed by rich, dark wood and leather. Unexpected touches of gold, mirror and antique pieces give a luxurious, almost deco feel to this industrial inner city home. South Yarra Apartment by Melbourne-based design studio Workroom.

Living in concrete

Most people think living in a concrete house would be cold and unwelcoming. I think that can be true depending on the climate. If it was a home with lots of glass nestled in the hills of Rio de Janeiro (as opposed to nestled within snow in the middle of a Canadian winter for example), like this home, I think it would be wonderful. This is home on weekends to designer Alessandra Clark, her husband Nuno Franco de Sousa (both of Mameluca Studio) and their daughter. With mountains and trees seen through all the windows, rustic wood furnishings, I think this is far from cold. Via Casa Vogue Brazil. Photos: Fran Parente.
