Bathing in the dark

Dark bathing beauties from the Danish masters of minimalism Norm.Architects. The en-suite bathroom in this old townhouse in Copenhagen features concrete, dark porcelain tiles and customised bronzed fixtures while family bathroom continues the dark, cave-like luxury.

Moody inner city pad

With great art deco bones this modern renovation of an inner city Sydney pied-à-terre by Weir Phillips Architects creates a moody and masculine home. Modern sophistication meets gentleman's club chic.

Clerkenwell lofts 2 + 3

A couple of years ago I featured this London loft by Inside Out Architecture. The project was so successful, they recently completed 2 more renovations in the same building. The owners of a 3rd floor apartment in this converted industrial building were desperately in need of more space for their growing family. Their novel solution was to buy part of their next-door-neighbour's apartment, taking the opportunity to refurbish both, resulting in adjoining projects within the same industrial shell but with very different outcomes. In the family home at no.15, the choice of materials sought to create a light and playful atmosphere, incorporating the clients' love of design classics. With space being tight, most partitions were transformed into useful pieces of joinery. The kitchen incorporates a L-shaped stepped concrete countertop to pay homage to the existing building and divide the living spaces. Whitewashed birch plywood, whitewashed timber floors and plain white joinery provide a neutral background for elements of vivid colour. One element that stood out for me was the concrete beams in the first apartment and how fantstic they look with the rest of the ceiling covered in drywall. Love the concrete countertop too!

A restaurant for the dogs

I LOVE this restaurant by Polish interior design firm 2kul! Restaurant is called Lord and idea of an Investor was to make English type pub in Poland. Name sound quite serious, but we do not want to scary people with too elegant, too luxury place so we invited our good friend artist Joanna Burda, who painted a whole family of aristocratic ... dogs - a little less serious :) Dark, dramatic dining rooms have always been a favourite of mine, so imagine some heavy velvet drapes, tufted leather chairs, a blingy chandelier and a huge dog portrait like these - I love that Weimeraner below.

Happy Friday!

Finally a break from craft & antique shows this weekend. I cannot wait for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, some movies with the husband and the cat herd, and unfortunately, getting ready for winter (BOO!!!). Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. To get things started, here are a couple of photos that had me mesmerized over on KK Living
