I've asked myself many times if there is a land more beautiful than my own Australia? And each time I have to admit that New Zealand is just a little more stunning. Just. The same question arises when it comes to architecture and interior design and the answer might just be the same. Just. This Barn House on the edge of the sea by Sumich Chaplin Architects has stolen my heart and may just prompt me to slip quietly across the Tasman Sea and declare myself a Kiwi. Perhaps ;)
Switzerland-based interior designer Marianne Tiegen always blows me away with her interior design projects that take rustic to a whole other level. This chalet was given a dose of classy understated elegance and comfort with the plush furnishings and wonderfully cozy fabrics to cuddle on or under during cool nights. So gorgeous. (And in case you missed it, this is my absolute favourite project of hers).
White walls seem to be getting a bad rap this days. All those insipid white walls. There is nothing washed-out about this Swedish apartment though. Moody greys add depth and character, acting as a foil to all the Scandi white. A small 32 m2 home with style and personality recently sold by Stockholm real estate brokers Historiska Hem.
I just wanted to pen a short note to let you know how much I love your work on this old house. Sympathetic, stylish, simple and soft. Love the colour palette, the whitewashed floors, the kitchen and the restored, sinuous stairs rising to that dark and moody studio office. Love how your client has filled it gently and thoughtfully with their possessions and how you knew it would be just so. Love it all.
