Wicklow Residence

I cannot be stopped! Here is yet another blog-worthy project by the immensely talented architecture and design firm Kingston Lafferty Design. This extension and renovation project of a 200 year old stone cottage is the perfect eclectic contrast of traditional and modern architecture, of "granny" and mid-century furnishings (Saarinen Womb chair and side table, Wegner Wishbone dining chairs and Shell chair and Eames walnut stool for the win!) and the unexpectedness of it all is so intriguing.

Another Minale + Mann project

A couple of months ago I featured this townhouse project by British architecture, interior and furniture design firm Minale + Mann, and thought I would share another because these folks have such a great eye for colour and scale. Love the "Farrow & Ball" shades in this one, and the kitchen is a DREAM. I only wish there were more photos. 


Bride's Row

I had to share another Brooklyn row house with you, again by architect Lorraine Bonaventura, because I cannot get enough. 1850's house was completely restored after being taken down to the brick...Mantels were restored, plaster work recast, herringbone floors meticulously restored and replaced, new limestone and antique french oak floors added to kitchen and dining level. Every surface was completely redone, rebuilt or restored. Radiant heating, air conditioning was added, brick work repointed, new sand cast iron exterior railings, brownstone facade replaced, new weight and chain mahogany windows with antique glass, all wood moldings replaced to replicate original moldings, original window shutters restored. It's essentially a brand new house! But with character! This home has such lovely details...it's unfortunate that the decor is bland (IMHO) - I would have added so much more drama with some (better) colour, and a bit of pattern, and some statement light fixtures. Oh, I could dream about what I would do to this home for hours. (Photos via Houzz)

Magnolia remodel

This remodel has managed to blow me away. Another one masterminded by SHED Architecture & Design. Located in Seattle, this 1914 craftsman had the exterior and main floor reworked to include a new kitchen, bathroom, laundry and backyard connection whilst keeping original details intact. Modern now blends with classic details and brings this house from ineffective to WOW.
