Blending in

When an architect makes an effort to redesign a house that still blends in with its surroundings. Kudos to Toronto architecture firm Johnson Chou for this wonderful project (which maybe can inspire and architect or 2 here in Ottawa). I adore this home inside and out and will be using this as inspiration whenever I get around to doing something with the exterior of my house. (How does a house built in 1940 NEVER have any landscaping done?! It's so embarrassing). And check out a previous feature on this talented firm here

Not so mellow yellow

An easy way to add some drama to your home is with colour. Yellow is the happiest colour of all so why not paint your kitchen chairs/stairs/buffet yellow, or tile your bathroom yellow, or have your entire staircase fabricated in yellow...

Inside Out


Frame House

When modern architecture and black comes together and produces something that dreams are made of. The Frame House Melbourne by Carr Design Group. Situated on a large block in Melbourne, the family home exposes little to the street. Behind the textured stucco wall a striking house is revealed within a lush secret garden. The rhythm of the colonnade and overall proportions evoke the elegance of Georgian architecture. Conversely the house is bold and contemporary with its robust steel frame supporting a finely detailed metal screen and zinc cladding.

Family townhouse redo

"The Lorimer Street Townhouse is a three-story, twenty-five foot wide, two-family house located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Every wall, ceiling, stair, floor and window of the house was replaced in the extensive renovation. The result is an open, loft-like home for a family of four. A custom, steel and solid wood tread stair divides the Parlor Level into a Living Room side at the street front and a Dining and Kitchen side at the rear of the building with garden access through 3 new, patio doors. Existing wood joists were exposed on the Parlor Level with insulation added to the underside of the floors above. Reclaimed floors compliment the existing joists and add to the rustic feel of this urban home."

A massive redo but the results are outstanding. Love the bathroom. Love the industrial vibe of the exposed ceilings, those floors and the central steel staircase. By Elizabeth Roberts and Ensemble Architecture.

Stalking on a Saturday

Walking past this building might tweak your curiosity but with its high castellated walls and frosted glass you would never catch a glimpse of what is inside. A business perhaps. Offices maybe. You would never suspect the spectacular 4 level home that lies behind its pale grey walls. I'm real estate stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I'm scheming and dreaming as to how I could ever raise the millions of dollars to buy this spectacular house. From its sun wells and indoor outdoor living filling white walled rooms with glowing light, to the stunning staircase winding sinuously higher, to the master suite with Ken Done painting above the bed and fire place on its own terrace to the upper level with its panoramic iconic Sydney views this is one house I would love to see in person because I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. The renovation design is by X.PACE and you can see their photos of it here. Someone in Sydney please attend an open house and let us all know how fabulous it really is. Link here while it lasts.
