A renovated terrace home in Paddington

I am forever in awe of architects who are willing to maintain original features in a refurbishment whilst modernizing the structure. This narrow terrace home in Paddington, Sydney is absolutely gorgeous and has impeccable attention to detail. The little workspace nook built out of the side of the kitchen cabinet is brilliant, and I adore the skylights over the kitchen and the narrow display nooks among the upper cabinets (a great idea if you are trying to squeeze Ikea cabinets into a space that just don't fit). A sleek, chic and fabulous home. Kudos to Tom Ferguson (TFAD) on a superb project. 
P.S. I am short on pets on furniture entries tso hopefully it will be back next Monday. Send your entries to me @ kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net or hashtag in IG with #dtipetsonfurniture.

Dark and light in a modern apartment

This renovated 3 bedroom apartment in Sydney, Australia is sleek and modern with a black and white colour scheme. This combination makes for a very chic and dramatic pad. The open concept space is punctuated with a kitchen design that I absolutely love - as much as I love a fabulous kitchen, it's even more fabuolus when it doesn't really look like a kitchen at first glance (I thought it was a dressing room!).
