SIMO Design

Ho ho ho! It's almost time for reindeer and a jolly fat man. I wouldn't be unhappy if I found anything refurbed by architect/designers Sam Gnatovich and Alexi Rennalls of SIMO Design in my stocking. (OK hard to fit a California Bungalow or a midcentury modern house in a stocking but you know what I mean ;) I love that even while modernising these homes they have retained the original. It's a young, vibrant take on the family home.

Robert Stilin

Classically modern interiors that combine vintage furniture, amazing art, custom upholstery and clean lined architectural details. Welcome to the work of East Hampton based interior designer Robert Stilin. No "Hamptons" formulaic spaces here though. Modern with a sophisticated vintage riff, multilayered and textured, casually elegant, warm and masculine.

Grey

In a departure from his signature highly decorative Hollywood Regency/ midcentury glamor style leading Australian interior designer Greg Natale has taken a inner city terrace, played with scale and colour, streamlined his rich multilayered interiors and delivered a home that is dramatic and stylish. Sultry grey is lifted by white. Furniture is carefully curated and oversize is not out of place in the play. In the new extension kitchen and family room are open plan and sleekly modern, the perfect counterfoil to the high drama of the rest of the house. A grey beauty indeed.

Stalking an iconic Australian architect

Gissling House, Wahroonga, Sydney. Described as a modest domestic work by Harry Seidler. Untouched by time and fads, developer or the market. As perfect as the day it was completed in 1972. Definitely not modest. To me a suburban jewel of modernism. For sale. I wish I could be so lucky to call this home. Link here while it lasts.
