Rove Concepts

I am not quite sold

I found myself on the website of James Cleary Architecture a while ago and was...dumfounded by this gut renovation of a Park Slope brownstone. To note in particular, the playful pod that wraps the dining area's walls and ceiling. The pod gives this space its own presence within the larger room while concealing HVAC equipment and the building's plumbing risers from sight. Perhaps I am really on the fence with this concept because I cannot tear myself away from the horror of the pale yellow walls, and when combined with red accents and a floral wallpaper that really does nothing for me...but I am finding this "pod" very cavelike and bizarre. I think the kitchen cabinetry set up along the entire space is not really something I would have done either. It is a stunning home and I imagine a vast improvement from before the renovation, but this one is throwing me for a loop. Thoughts?


Noteworthy from Cloth & Kind

I adore this laundry room - particularly the sink set-up and the light fixture. *drool*

Afriad to go with dark walls? Why not give it a try on the trim instead? Talk about a bold, graphic statement!

Best blue

This wallpaper is beautiful. Would be amazing with navy glossy trim. Hex tile floor is a bonus.

Pretty Please

It's the OTT entrance to a nightclub but my head is spinning with the possibility of including something like this somewhere in my house. Pretty Please. No that's not me begging. That's the name of the Melbourne club designed by Travis Walton.


Wallpaper love

Farrow & Ball is launching four new wallpapers on Monday that are inspired by Japanese craftsmanship, and they are stunning! I have wallpaper on the brain - wondering if I should include some in my new house. This first one is my favourite. I would love it in my dining room, or bathroom, or hallways...... (P.S. Each is available in 5 colourways, from soft neutrals/earth tones to brights/metallics)

(I had this post ready to go and two minutes before it was set to publish a cute Fedex guy came to the door with a box containing samples and a sweet little notebook! Perfect timing!)

Talk about packing a design punch. I can't wait to see more of this Fitzroy apartment by interior designer extraordinaire Greg Natale but I guess I'll just have to wait until November 2014 when his book The Tailored Interior is released. Swoon. Love his wallpaper range for Porter's Paints. Stripes never looked so sexy.
