Bondi apartment

The renovation of this Art Deco penthouse apartment at Bondi Beach, Sydney opens the interior to an external courtyard and delineates internal space by a series of joinery walls. The new sits lightly within the historic shell with period features remaining intact while modern considerations are addressed and sinuous curves touch lightly on Art Deco angles. A cool, hip pad within a classic old apartment. By Marsh Cashman Koolloos.

Natasi Vail Design

The soaring ceiling in this two bedroom duplex in a converted 19th century schoolhouse in Cobble Hill, New York lifts this otherwise small space to another level. Natasi Vail Design has exploited the height during their renovation of the space with clever built ins to maximise storage and provide architectural detail. Splashes of blue and pink play against white walls while a gallery hang of small art pieces accentuates the height. The original kitchen has a low ceiling height but by removing upper cabinets and replacing them with open shelves the space appears more open. An awkward apartment soars to new heights

A dump turned jewel

About a month ago my husband and I took on a quick project in our home that was literally life changing. I wanted to share it with you all now that I finally have photos thanks to a bit of free time over the holidays. My house is quite small as I have complained MANY times here, and has no decent storage. We eat at home alot, and despite having a fabulous new kitchen, there was still not enough storage for food after our trips to the grocery store. Another dilemma we have with this house is there is NO closet on the main floor. When you walk in the front door you are smack in the middle of the living room. This is Ottawa, so having no adequate space to dump wet snowy jackets and boots was beyond annoying. There is a room at the back of the house just beyond the kitchen. We decided to turn the space into a pantry/cold storage(LOL)/coat room. Here is a post of it when I redecorated and made it my office. I am so freaking happy with the space now. We have FOUR Ikea shelving units to store the majority of our food, some dishes, and office supplies! YESSS!!! My husband also built a storage unit to house all of our coats, boots and seasonal accoutrements. :-) A dump of a space turned out to be one of the most useful in the house, and it's pretty cute to boot! (Sorry, I took an overabundance of photos)

This room is not wired for lighting so we had to improvise and bought some cute clamp lights for the top of the shelves. We can finally see in there!
