A Brooklyn row house

I seem to be finding lots of incredible renovations in New York lately. This Cobble Hill (Brooklyn) row house is a total dream, having undergone a serious makeover by architect Lorraine Bonaventura. Never mind how glorious this entire structure is, LOOK AT THOSE ORIGINAL WOOD FLOORS!!! YES!!! This row house for a busy family in Cobble Hill underwent a complete transformation over two years. Every system and surface was replaced, the structure stabilized and reinforced. The house was altered from a four family to a two family residence, a triplex with two terraces and a two bedroom apartment below. The clients are both designers and participated in design decisions throughout the process. Wherever possible, we used original materials: flooring, stair balusters and newel posts, supplementing them with vintage fixtures and antique mantels. These vintage materials contrast with an open, clean and modern space. (Photos: Houzz)

A home with history

This Amsterdam home blows my mind. If I walked in someone would need to hold me up because I would probably drop to the floor. Seriously though, the architecture, the bold colours, the herringbone hardwood floor, the checkerboard marble tile, those freaking windows (!!!)...then throw in some cool mid-century furniture and I totally become weak in the knees.

Simplicity and refinement

Simplicity and refinement, in shades of black, grey and white. A beautiful and strong combination that always wins. And now I am rethinking painting my yellow hardwood again. *sigh* Via JJ Locations

A not-so-Victorian apartment in London

A big thanks to Selina for sending us the link (via The Modern House) to this fantastic and strange apartment in London. Here are some specs: Designed by architect David Kohn, this very special four-bedroom apartment (approx. 1,633 sq ft) with balcony and garden is arranged over two storeys of a converted Victorian terraced house in Queen’s Park. The building is very well-maintained, with steps up to a communal front door and entrance hall. This flat is entered on the raised ground floor. It has a large living space with a bay window at the front of the property, which flows into an open-plan dining room and kitchen with separate larder. From the kitchen, you go down half a level and find a study area with access to the garden via a handmade powder-coated-steel walkway. Along the hallway are built-in, angled cupboards. The first two bedrooms and bathroom are found at this level, with the larger one at the rear having direct access into the garden. Down another level are two large bedrooms with lots of built-in storage, and a further family bathroom. I am smitten this apartment - the crown moldings and the fireplace are dreamy but ah mah gawd what have they done with the floors?!?! Yellow, green and red stain? HUH? And don't get me started on those massive baseboards. Epic fail. Kudos for creativity I suppose.
