Entries in small (129)
I am up to my eyeballs in paint as I work on transforming my living room, and I would just like to say thank you to all those who told me to lose the mahogany trim. While I am still not sure about my entry way (where the majority of the wood work is) I am really happy to see the mahogany gone in the living room. I still have alot of work to do but photos to come ASAP. During a short break yesterday while working on the trim, I came across these 2 residences that I fell in love with. The first is a beautiful old farm in Denmark that has been totally renovated and filled with flea market finds. It has a really lovely neutral colour palette. (Via Femina) The other is a small apartment in Barcelona that used to be a series of dark, cramped rooms. Sergi Pons Architects created an open floor plan and inserted a white cube in the centre to house the kitchen and bathroom. Such stunning original stone walls and ceramic tile ceiling, and the result is a successful marriage of modern and rustic. (Via Living)
It's an award winning house on the tiniest of inner city blocks. It's been published in books, magazines and blogs, featured on TV and lauded by all. Now it's for sale. I'm stalking Domenic Alvaro's Small House in Surry Hills, Sydney. You can see my original post here and you'll see how its decor has softened over time and how the roof top garden hasn't fared so well. Small living on a grand scale with a big price tag. Real estate link here while it lasts.
