October’s issue of Inside Out hits the stands on Thursday and I’m excited. Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us not one but two sneak peeks.
… the home of Table Tonic blogger and shop owner Louise Bell and her architect husband Graeme Bell. It’s located on Sydney’s northern beaches and is a modernist design by architect Loyal Alexander, who originally lived there. By the time that Graeme came across the home, four families had lived there since. “They were marketing it as a ‘knock-it-down-and-build-two’, which horrified us,” said Graeme Bell. Luckily, his family moved in and saved that from happening. Readers will be able to visit this residence on Wednesday October 29, when it hosts our latest ‘Open For Inspection’ house tour, as led by editor Claire Bradley and ISCD educator and our panel’s style expert Lisa Koehler. Tickets will be available at Moshtix from Thursday. Styling by Jason Grant and photography by Harold David.
I do not usually start my posts that feature a home with a photo of the bathroom. But since this may be my favourite bathroom EVER, I decided it had to be first. This is la résidence Esplanade, by Montréal architect Emilie Bédard (collab with Idea Design).
For the record, I love the rest of this home too.
After blogging about interior design for almost 8 years and seeing alot of “trends” and repetitive styles, I love stumbling upon a project that is creative, original and eclectic. This West Village townhouse designed by Danielle Fennoy and Cece Stelljes of Revamp Interior Design is anything but trendy. It is quirky and unexpected and that loungey purple-ish sectional sofa is maybe one of the coolest I have ever seen (I am obsessed with movie-watching comfy sectionals)…and HELLO POOL!!!!
A home built with layers. Collections and treasured possessions. Textures. Subtle palette lifted with splashes of colour. Art and a sense of personality. A house with soul. By Barcelona based design firm Luzio.
One more from the TV show The Block. Michael and Carlene’s apartment features warm exposed brick walls, slick kitchen and a generally panned main bathroom, the weak link in an otherwise well resolved space. Link here while it lasts.
