Obvious mid century roots have been enhanced by new profiles and a more contemporary line in this house by Sydney-based Nobbs Radford Architects. A sense of light and space is enhanced by soaring ceilings, light wells and voids. A galley kitchen harks back to the 60s but is a modern, fresh take with on point finishes. I'm smitten.
I have never been a fan of condominiums/high-rise apartments. They remind me too much of an office building (where I have worked the past 15 years) and seem so non-homey. This Kiev, Ukraine loft penthouse however, would have me totally converted. This is one of the most considered homes I have ever seen. Every square inch seems to have been carefully thought out, beautifully designed and perfectly executed. I even appreciate the open concept closet. My almost all-black wardrobe would be quite a statement there. Designed by Olga Akulova.
Saturday? Work day? Bummer! But there's no need to be glum if you work in someplace stylish and fun. I'd happily drag my sorry self into work if I was a sales assistant at vintage clothing and accessories store, Vintage Sole, by Melbourne-based Moth Design. Yes cool clothes, yes copper pipe hanging racks but whoa, knockout stencil floor idea for those of us who can't afford meters and meters of encaustic tiles.
Before I head out for breakfast and errands, and then spend the remainder of the day at the folks place hanging out at the pool and enjoying some BBQ (because SUMMER!!!) I leave you with this gorgeous newly renovated Georgian home in Hackney, UK that is available via JJ Locations. Love the bold colour choice in the living and dining rooms, and the little kitchen is adorable. And I want that polar bear side table. :)
