White by the sea

A small apartment by the sea with white done right. Natural, organic elements, layers of texture, light streaming in and that view. What more could you want? Perhaps the keys to the front door of this Cape Town, South Africa home. By Michele Throssell Interiors.

Stalking a dream

I was stalking in the Melbourne recently when I can upon two apartments for sale. The building, the gardens, so beautiful. What a dream ... and they are. You see I'm stalking computer generated renderings. Very good renderings I might add.

"Envisioned by architectural developer Orchard Piper, Huntingtower Road offers beautifully proportioned homes in the heart of Armadale. In collaboration with esteemed architects Jolson and landscape architects Myles Baldwin Design, this rare property comprises ten finely detailed homes immersed in greenery."

Sigh. Now if only they look as good after they are built and sold (don't choke on the price) and the new owners move in with their own pieces of furniture. For now though I can dream. For sale here and here while they last.

Traditional vibes in mostly neutrals

Such soothing shades of neutrals in this Marin County, California home designed by Mark D. Sikes. Makes for such warm, inviting spaces that seem effortless and timeless. The star of the show in my opinion is that fantastic piece of art in the photo above. Gorgeous!!

Smooth operator

"Located in Daylesford, the Central Springs house was designed to create a sense of warmth and comfort, often needed in the cool climate setting. A refined palette of white washed timber boards, and polished fresco walls are used to produce a sophisticated take on the traditional country home."

I love the play of smooth and rough as well as the calm of the greige colour palette. (I almost want to rub my hands all over those polished walls.) Central Springs by Adam Kane Architects.



Sophisticated and timeless 

Scandinavian and Belgian antiques sit comfortably with contemporary pieces. A muted colour palette is enhanced by texture and patina. Atmospheric, ephemeral, timeless, simply beautiful. Exquisite restraint and refined beauty define this elegant residence by Houston-based M Naeve.
