Please take me away to this stunning home in Fiji by Madeleine Blanchfield. All the elements of Blanchfield's modern Australian aesthetic are there but layered with a rich referencing of island style. A perfect holiday home or, if I had my way, a perfect forever home. Kedere rawa ni lako vata?
A little escape to Switzerland to this chalet by Andreas Fuhrimann Gabbrielle Hächler Architects. Concrete, plywood and views from the beanbags. A minimalist, modern twist on the traditional. Love the staircase and its storage. Love the reinterpretation of the historic vernacular.
I am a creature of habit it seems. Mondays are developing a distinct pattern. Mondays are the day I run away to a virtual retreat, escape to a veritable feast for the eyes. I play make believe. This Monday, then, is no different. I'm running away as fast as I can to this little eco cabin in Uruguay I found on the pages of Elle Decor España. Simple, unpretentious and beautiful. Don't come visit me straight away though. I'm draining the water tank dry in that outdoor shower. I know. Not very eco of me but I am just day dreaming here ... and what a lovely daydream.
Maddalena Cannarsa of extrArchitecture is an Italian architect living in London and this is her recently refurbished flat. Love the light and the period features. Those floors! That wall of wooden windows! A beautiful, fresh Euro/white meets Victorian period features home with splashes of red to heighten the warmth of the wood. Maddalena has cleverly tidied up the wasted space in the original layout allowing her the luxury of a walk in robe in a relatively small one bedroom flat. Wonderful, warm and white.
