Stalking monochrome Multiplicity in Melbourne

It's another case of stalking déjà vu. Architecturally designed homes we have featured previously on the blog seem to be hitting the market. Today I'm stalking this Brunswick East house by Melbourne-based architectural studio Multiplicity. If I remember correctly I was quite taken by the storage system in the kitchen. (You can see it in its architect's portfolio life here.) Now it's even more fabulous with its "styling for sale" by inside story, the latest collaboration between Lynda Gardener and Belle Hemming. Love, love, love the Grant Featherstone Numero modular chairs in the lounge area. I'm biased though because I have the same ones. Link for this wonderful heritage cottage and its ultra-modern extension here while it lasts.

The Bower Byron Bay

Hallelujah the week is almost over! Time to turn our thoughts to weekend getaways. One of my favourite spots to runaway to for a couple of days is Byron Bay on the New South Wales North Coast just a few hours drive from me. Cool, stylish and laid-back this beach resort town with an eco conscious heart is home to a new chic boutique hotel, The Bower Byron Bay. Comprising 14 suites, a barn, a cottage and a family house it's the perfect place to stay in casual luxury. Love the minimalist vibe with its monochrome palette and lush greenery and it's just minutes from the beach and Byron's fabulous cafes and shopping.

More from Nathalie Rives

"An invitation to live, evolve, share .." It's the philosophy behind the work of Lyon-based interior stylist Nathalie Rives. This apartment with its great bones, a mid-century vibe to the furniture and fabulous art is warm and elegant with bold use of colour and that certain French style. Is it just me, or do you agree, that the French do the sweetest children's rooms?

The curse of orange knotty pine walls

Whenever I've been asked what to do with ugly orange-stained knotty pine walls or ceilings I have always had one answer ... paint them, paint it all! Sometimes you can't. You could be renting, you might not have the money or the time to invest in such a big job. Then I came across this log cabin styled by Susan Burns and it was an epiphany. The knotty pine walls and ceilings are the perfect foil for the white furniture and soft furnishings. OK the brick fireplace and some of the floors have been painted but the often overpowering orange wood has definitely been softened by what I'm calling the "white within". A pretty solution don't you think?

So French so fabulous

Oh the French. They have that certain something. Effortless style and sophistication. A little bit rustic with simple luxury, primitive next to midcentury, vibrant colour playing against whitewash. An understanding of what is needed and what is not. Be style my beating heart. Maison des champs, Sainte-Foys-Lès-Lyon by interior stylist Nathalie Rives.
