When bits of colour shine against white

I love this Victorian home I found via jj Locations. Bright white walls and painted floors make the perfect backdrop for subtle bits of colours added through vintage mid century chairs, art, a touch of wallpaper and accessories. Yes, I apparently have a thing with Victorian homes in the UK. They are always fabulous.

Expedition Happiness - home on a school bus

What happens when 2 creative travellers get their hands on a huge yellow school bus? 

They turn it into the coolest home on 4 wheels! Felix Starck, Selima Taibi and their dog Rudi (a rather large Bernese Mountain dog) are travelling in this converted bus from Alaska to Argentina - it's Expedition Happiness. The conversion was alot of work and there is now an incredible amount of storage without taking up too much valuable space. The sofa is designed with 2 large drawers for camera gear and folds out into a double bed. The queen sized bed in the bedroom area has one half that folds up so they can store bulky items like an outdoor table, guitar, and tools. The other half has 4 big drawers for clothes. Towels, toilet paper etc. is housed in the big closet and the cubbies behind the bed function as a nightstand alternative. There is even a 32" TV in there. On top of being totally functional with a complete kitchen and shower stall, it's beautifully designed and decorated in rustic wood and white. Simple and bright and all you really need. It is totally gorgeous and now I want my own school bus to convert!! You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, or their blog. I am soooo jealous.

A compact + modern apartment in Moscow

A contrast of white plaster and raw, rust-washed concrete. Painted brick counterbalances sleek kitchen cabinetry. A simple, bright, modernist approach was taken by architecture firm Crosby Studios with this 590 sq ft Soviet era apartment. The addition of plants throughout make this an A+ home in my book. (More of their work here, here and here)

Weekend getaway

In my dreams you'll find me here, kicking off my weekday worries at the door like a pair of shoes. My hardest decision at this Palm Beach house on Sydney's Northern Beaches would be whether to stay in or venture down to the village or perhaps to one of the two beaches just minutes from the door. In my dreams life is really tough. You don't have to use your imagination though. The Pavilion House is available for holiday let through Contemporary Hotels.

A beach house in Malibu

Summer appears to be sticking around a little longer here in Ottawa with temperatures reaching 40 tomorrow. FINE BY ME! In the meantime I am trying to enjoy every moment I can outdoors...and then I came across this beach house in Malibu and was blown away by how beautiful it is inside and out. I would give anything to be able to enjoy a climate like that year round and be so close to the ocean. By Ignacio Rodriguez Architects.
