A conceptual apartment - dark and industrial

I have such respect for people who are talented in the area of graphics. I had to take a graphics course in college for my computer science diploma and it was BRUTAL (you have no idea how long it took me to create a 3D cube and make it rotate). Denis Krasikov is not only a very talented CG artist but his interior design concept for this masculine, industrial apartment for a chief editor of a Russian gaming magazine is equally as impressive. And yes, I love the hallway tile. :)

Dark and moody

Velvet, leather, brass, aged wood and murano glass. A mid century riff with Scandi classics sits with Elizabethan revival. Wrapped round and round with a dark and moody paint job. A chiaroscuro clash between scantily skimmed windows and the darkest blue walls. The Wolf Upstairs Events Space by Meme of Melbourne. Spurn the noon day sun and meet me for a drink.

Minale + Mann - a Victorian townhouse project

I love love LOVE this project by London-based architecture, interior and furniture design firm Minale + Mann. It has an aura of class, and elegance, but edgy and cool. This classic Victorian townhouse was designed, renovated and refurbished by M+M, in collaboration with Buster + Punch. A bespoke brass kitchen, distressed chevron timber flooring, a 20ft master suite, M+M and Buster + Punch designed lighting and furniture throughout, are all key design features, centred around a 100yr old Olive Tree in a double void space.

Meet the bride

I love a little drama. Oh be honest Jo. I love a lot of drama. Why settle for a bland rabbit warren of rooms when you can create and cajole, imagine and conceive a space that screams luxury and sensory titillation. In the burbs no less. Melodrama! Meet the Bride as in the Bride and Groom by Russell & George. I'll let them explain.

"This house is stage one of the transformation of an existing 1950s suburban house into one half of a grander vision. Dubbed the Bride and Groom, stage one is the bride, a decadent layered and luxurious series of reception and sleeping rooms. Stage two will be an open stone pavilion."

Carlton Warehouse

A house within a ruin is the premise for this new home in Carlton in inner city Melbourne. Rising from a decrepit warehouse shell, through a garden space climbing higher until, at the top, it reveals its living areas with expansive views, new spirals out of the old. The repetition of a circle is a recurring motif of the architects' recent work. Carlton Warehouse by Kennedy Nolan.
