Amber Interiors

Posted on Thu, 29 Oct 2015 by KiM

I have been a fan of Amber Lewis‘ designs for what seems like ages, but just realized I have never done a feature on her work here before. So here you have it – bohemian chic at its finest! A white walled background is the perfect backdrop for warm woods, kilim rugs, graphic pillows, plants and the coziest of furniture. Vintage combined effortlessly with modern, Amber’s signature style continues to impress me with each project she completes. (She even has a shoppe!)

A timeless renovation by London based architectural firm De Rosee Sa blurs the line between new and old. A hint of the traditional with plenty of modern convenience. The stand out of the renovation? The beautiful, bespoke joinery.

Stalking over 5 or is that 6 levels

Posted on Thu, 29 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

I’m in Paddington, Sydney and I’m stalking the conversion of an old warehouse. The home rises over 4 levels of living but maybe it’s 5 if you include the roof terrace garden. Then again it could be 6 if you include the sandstone wine cellar. Whichever way there are a lot of stairs. Luckily there is also a lift. I cannot think of another thing they could cram into this space. 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, garaging for 4 cars, a butler’s pantry off the kitchen, a gym, the aforementioned wine cellar, a separate teenager’s retreat/rumpus, an atrium garden with retractable glass roof and an indoor glass-walled plunge pool. I’m exhausted just trying to decipher the floor plans. Link here while it lasts.

Le Renard et La Chouette

A little more rustic goodness to end the day. This restaurant/coffee shop/bar located in Québec was designed by APPAREIL architecture. A little bit Scandinavian and a little bit French, the design is simple, raw and so lovely. Remember folks, while you’re tearing through layers….maybe you should just leave ‘er be.
