Entries in concrete (92)
Raw concrete and honed basalt. A monochrome palette warmed with burnt orange highlights. A nod to Palladian villas perched by the sea. Loggia lounging and beachside modern. A marriage between swimwear and sophistication. Sorrento House on the Mornington Peninsula by Melbourne-based Rob Mills Architects.
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)
