Living with plants (and cats)

While moving from gate to gate at the Puerto Vallarta airport (they are so freaking disorganized) a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across this apartment in the latest issue of Elle Decoration Mexico. I have an obsession with plants, which is pretty hilarious considering I am only mediocre at keeping them alive, so this home really drew me in. It is the Auckland, New Zealand home of stylist Charlotte Rust and it is filled with plants! And a couple of cats! The contrast between the raw, lifeless concrete and the beautiful greenery is lovely. This is a perfect example of how you can easily warm up a space. Plants always help. So do cats. :) (Perfectly captured by photographer by Jessica MacCormick)

I loved the bathrooms by mckimm in the last post. Definitely digging this glimpse at another they have designed. Tiles, towel rack, floors. Fab.

Melbourne-based design practice mckimm create contemporary, stylish spaces from design to construction. This U-shaped home wraps itself around an outdoor kitchen, firepit and pool. A modern industrial vibe is warmed by walls of exposed brick while the use of concrete unites its open spaces.

Rock House

The Rock House, perched on the edge of a cliff in the outskirts of Stockholm on Lake Mälaren. Designed by Arkitektstudio Widejdal Racki. What a beautiful location, and the mix of concrete, glass and wood creates a modern and organic retreat. I find it a bit cold but with the addition of more rugs and some plants, I think it would be the perfect getaway home.

Making connections

More like a favourite local café than a private house that's the thinking behind this modern extension to a California bungalow in St Kilda, Melbourne by MAKE Architecture. A place for family and friends to come together. A place to connect with the local community. Inside connecting with out. Private spaces connecting easily with public.
