It’s a new, squeaky clean working week and I ‘m marking the occasion with the perfect spot to get squeaky clean yourself. It’s this fabulous bathroom by Jaclyn Peters Design. Love the modern meets retro feel with on trend black fittings and clean lined wooden vanities paired with those amazing 50s inspired sconces and the little hairpin legged stool. Love the beautiful light streaming in and the subtle luxury of marble tiles. You can see more Jaclyn’s work here.
Last month I featured an edgy loft by interior designer Lukas Machnik and thought I would share another of his projects. This time the scene is quite different. A house on the beach in California is given a modern yet earthy with lots of creams, wood and black accents. Some mid-century modern classics are a reminder that this isn’t your average beach house. My favourite elements are the dining table and benches that he designed. Gorgeous!!
You would think I haven’t got very far these past few days, that I’m caught in a virtual real-estate-stalking parallel universe. It couldn’t be further from the truth. Although I’m sharing this inner city Melbourne warehouse style home with its polished concrete floors, steel framed windows and soaring ceiling in its impressive entrance I haven’t spent the entire weekend stalking. I’ve actually been working on a new master bedroom in my own house that I hope to share with you any day now. I’m moving from my old black bedroom to a white, bright room across the corridor. It’s not that I fell out of love with black walls. It’s just time for a change. In the meantime you can tell me how you feel about the black ceiling in this warehouse’s open plan living space. Link to the listing here while it lasts.
There is something so sexy about a black and white space. Make it a downtown LA loft with exposed wooden beams, steel trusses and original hardwood floors and it doesn’t really get much hotter than that! Designed by avant-garde, minimalist interior designer Lukas Machnik.
A stark palette of black and white provides the theatre at the heart of the design of this Potrero Hill residence by Eche Martinez of San Francisco based interior design firm ECHE. The tension between the two is tempered by warm wood tones while the play on opposites is continued with slick modern pieces and timeless antiques. It’s a graphic approach, one destined to create drama in any space and one that can only inspire.
