House of Mirrors

Mirrors. They reflect light. They increase the sense of space in a room. They can mess with your mind ... in a good way in the case of the "invisible" pillar in this top floor apartment in Plaça Catalunya in the centre of Barcelona. The renovation by Nook Architects uses "contemporary and warm finishes (to) highlight the original envelope, which is only altered to bring back a spirit more honest to the building’s tectonics and to allow it to evolve to today’s standard of comfort and living style." In other words stylish modern living in an amazing old building in a great location. Perfect.

An eclectic apartment in Paris by Camille Hermand

This 350m2  in Paris is a total dream with to-die-for moldings galore and my favourite chevron hardwood throughout. Add a floral wallpaper that I am completely smitten with, massive ornate mirrors, a luxurious kitchen and some bold paint colours and I am about ready to move right in! Another stunner by the incredibly talented Camille Hermand Architectures

Kitchen envy

Because sometimes white subway tiles, thin marble countertops, gilded mirrors and a vintage crystal chandelier is all you need. Via JG Interiors

Stalking a little black terrace house

Not much over 4m wide but with its modern renovation and addition, this wooden terrace house in Balmain, Sydney manges to squeeze in 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and openplan living on a small inner city block. A little bit industrial, a little bit scandi modern and all with light pouring in through skyligfhts and voids. I wouldn't call it tiny but it certainly is compact. Link here while it lasts.

Depth and reflection

Brazilian architect/designer Gisele Taranto went a little cray cray at this year's Casa Cor design competition. Lab LZ by GT is this space consisting of 3 sectors: lounge, working and library. And all of them are set upon a suspended glass floor filled with mirror shards in the space between the existing subfloor and the glass...thus bringing together the concept of depth and reflection. Now that's creative. I don't think I could live with a floor like that but what an interesting concept! (The leather Lego sofa from estudiobola is fantastic!)
