The element of surprise

I love the element of surprise in a space. A modern chair pulled up to a early 1900s wooden desk. A graphic piece of art hanging above granny's old rocker. A sleek glass dining table with an antique brass chandelier hanging above. I laughed when I stumbled upon these photos. 

The loft space is heavenly but anyone with no sense of imagination would then fill it top to bottom with industrial decor (ok, this is probably an ad for Restoration Hardware or something similar so they can get away with it). I'll forgive those responsible as I freaking LOVE those chesterfields and all that exposed brick.. (Photos by Scott Gabriel Morris)

A bit masculine, a bit industrial

I am very fond of this London home currently for rent via Domus Nova. The exposed brick walls, the wide plank flooring on the downstairs level and the black herringbone flooring upstairs, and the industrial vibe of the kitchen are all fantastic features that will surely have this place becoming occupied in no time.

Saturday drinks

Drinks tonight? I'd love to come but I can't. I have to work. You'll have a fab time at The Nelson. The fitout by Techné Architecture + Interior Design is so cool. Rustic meets maritime meets industrial, distressed and recycled. I'd call in sick to work but I'm the boss. Have a rum for me!

An apartment by General Assembly 

I absolutely adore this Brooklyn apartment, designed by Sarah Lawlor Zames of General Assembly. After trying and failing to find an apartment with character, the owners of this space opted to combine two fairly lifeless new development apartments and renovate to perfectly suit their style. Bringing in as many natural materials as possible was important to these penthouse owners, so GA incorporated concrete wall and ceiling details, reclaimed wood floors, marble slabs in the shower and kitchen, and plenty of custom Walnut millwork. We designed steel and glass doors to divide public and private areas, and full height flush millwork doors to stretch the space upward.  This is a fantastic example of how to create a modern space that is comfortable and has personality. The wood flooring is an absolute dream, and is beautiful when combined with the marble and walnut. The southwestern vibe in the living room really works and the unexpected graphic wallpapers add some whimsy. I would not change a thing. Lucky owners! (photos by Joe Fletcher)

The marble against the walnut and matte black is stunning.

Working on a Saturday

Say it loud.
Say it clear.
Saturday at work?
I don't want to be here!

Unless of course it the workplace looks like this. If you have to go in go into something stylish. South Loft, an Auckland office for economists by Fearon Hay Architects.
