Casual + rustic + modern by Eric Olsen

I love everything about this California house designed by architect/designer Eric Olsen. There's the understated dark exterior, the semi-dark-painted kitchen with awesome upper display shelving, the wood stack in the dining room and modern mismatched chairs, the creative paint job in the bedroom, the tile in the bathrooms and the backyard oasis. Dreamy!!!

A labour of love

Originally two keepers cottages this West Sussex flint house was extended and remodelled but not into a modern McMansion. No. Something just a little more special was achieved. Newly constructed rooms were given character and warmth with the extensive use of reclaimed oak and elm timbers and old York stone slabs. A modern glass link almost disappears while allowing light to flood into this quintessentially English home. Even the "new" oak beams were hollowed out to hide modern services. Truly a labour of love. Eckensfield by Caroline Holdaway Design.

In the dunes

It must be the scorching hot days that are plaguing my part of the world that has me obsessing over beach houses. Normally I'd be happy with a simple shack with a view and a breeze. That is until I see something just a bit more special.

On a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas – nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion.

New with old

The renovation and extension of this Beverley Hills home included the incorporation of elements from a dismantled 19th century wood barn as well as a new entrance and landscaping. The old beams and siding add warmth to the expansive rooms. I love the marriage of the new build with the old barn wood, the mid century feel of the furnishings working back against the aged timbers and white walls and the beautiful dry climate garden.
