Antokolsky penthouse

How about a dose of modernism to make you want to de-clutter and enjoy some concrete? The Antokolsky penthouse by Pitsou Kedem Architect is pretty spectacular, and pretty freaking huge at 680 m². So not only can you do laps up and down its massively long corridor, you can then go take a dip in the rooftop pool and enjoy the views of Tel Aviv. My favourite touch is the Ingo Maurer Lucellino lights - a longtime favourite of mine.

House 'o concrete

This home, located in Tel Aviv, Israel and designed by Axelrod Architects is all about concrete. It's EVERYWHERE. A little too cold perhaps? I think so, but with some walls clad in wood and some wood flooring (I'd even welcome a bit of carpet) this is one sweet home. It may be cold and minimal but it's got ALOT of windows to keep things bright and warm. I love the long narrow window above the kitchen countertop, and the different levels of the home keep things interesting (love the floor #'s on the walls in case you weren't sure where you were).

Sharon Nueman bonus

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with loungey areas in a home. Which is why I had to feature this fun little lounge area next to a kitchen in a home designed by Sharon Neuman. Have an unused corner in your home somewhere? Even in your kitchen? Throw some upholstered foam mattresses down and some pillows and I bet it will become the favourite hangout! I can imagine hanging out in this one with the cats while reading a decor mag and watching my husband cook me dinner. :-)

An apartment in Israel

Maya Bickson, an interior designer from Israel, emailed us some photos and details of an apartment she designed.This is a 3-bedroom garden apartment. It was completely restructured and redesigned. I enlarged the public area of the apartment to make the apartment look much bigger and lighter. I did it by moving the kitchen to the room adjacent to the living room and joining the two rooms together, and canceling a closet-room, which gave space to the dining area. The owners are a young & cool couple, with no fear of color, and they have a collection of beautiful objects. The design is quite eclectic as you can see. Modern with touches of vintage (the light-blue door to the home-office is an old door which was colored, and an old-style glass fixed to it. The tiles in the main bathroom are classic moroccon tiles), classics (Eames lounge chair), romance (in colors, floral patterns). A lot of thought was given to details, such as the blackboard in the kitchen with the white clock, the round window between the bath and the desk near the dining table, the brick wall in the kitchen, etc. All the furniture was designed and custom made. The round library was spotted by the couple in a design magazine and built for them here. It's quite an impressive transformation - made obvious thanks to some before photos. (More details here in Maya's blog post).
