A small apartment 

A clever redesign of a small one bedroom apartment in inner city Sydney makes better use of the existing space without losing the character of this older style dwelling. The key was to make a small study area the bedroom with movable walls that borrow space from the bathroom and hallway. The original bedroom then becomes a dining room connecting to the living area, a luxurious addition to small space living in the heart of the city.

A modern home in Hintonburg

I have driven by this home in Ottawa's Hintonburg neighbourhood several times and always loved how simple the exterior is. For an infill project amidst a slew of very old brick homes, this seems to blend in more than one would expect. I was also dying to know what the inside looked like, and now I know, because I discovered it was designed by built, and featured on their website. The architecture is simple and modern, with a WOW kitchen and some really cool bathrooms. Love it!! (Photos I think by Justin Van Leeuwen)

Teeny tiny paradise

Soothing in neutrals

I had to share another space created by The New Design Project because I adore neutral spaces that have some spunk and are not the least bit dull. This New York rental apartment is anything but dull. It has tons of personality through quirky art and furnishings despite having a very limited colour palette. This is fantastic! (More details here, photos by Alan Gastelum)
