Mixing old and new in a London home

I found this 5 bedroom West London terrace home on Shoot Factory and was instantly intrigued. The house has recently been extended to include a super sleek concrete inspired kitchen and dining space. A truly unique space – the floor, kitchen island, dining table, and seating is all constructed from almost seamless concrete. Finished with grey elm joinery, the kitchen-come-living space is beautifully simplistic and light. The exterior of the extension is made up of large expanse of glass and clad in rusted corten steel. The front sitting room provides a more traditional feel with bay window, herringbone flooring, original cornicing and ceiling rose, and beautiful marble fireplace. I feel like the concrete in the kitchen is a bit overkill....maybe if it didn't run partially up the walls too and the bench at the built-in table was made of wood instead. Regardless the cabinets are gorgeous and I love the subtle tile backsplash. I have also fallen head over heels for that grey subway tile in the bathroom and may try and find something similar for my bathroom reno (likely cheaper than the marble subway tile I was thinking of using).

Another design project in Poland by Lucyna Kołodziejska

Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska has impressed me yet again with this latest project of hers that she sent me juicy photos of. Hired on by the homeowners initially to redesign their bathroom, she ended up redecorating the entire house. The result is a truly elegant blend of classic and modern elements that flows from one room to another with a very subtle colour palette of beige and earth tones (Lucyna was inspired by coastal homes) that would ordinary have me wanting more but here it just makes all of the beautiful details stand out. And the cat has won me over too. :)

High House

It may only be 5 metres wide but as the architectural firm Dan Gayfer Design explains it's all about "... a high level of functionality, flexibility, interaction and detail in a house with high ceilings, a high roofline and high levels of natural light." It's also high on style. The perfect partnering of spatial design and good looks. What can I say. It really is a High House.

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...

Paris Commune

Not the 19th century radical socialist French uprising (OK I'm just showing off here). No it's a Parisian apartment by LA based design firm Commune. Open plan living unified and delineated by oak joinery and a fabulous floor tile. Very French in a very Californian way. Stylish, chic, contemporary living.
