Super cute

How cute is this little girl’s bedroom by Sydney-based Lily Rose Interiors? Simple, stylish and fun with only a smidgen of pink.

Living small and living large

Living small. Tiny house. Buzz words for a fleeting trend vs social movement and way of the future. Wherever you stand on tiny houses there is something we can all agree on. How incredibly stylish and devilishly clever is this compact recreation house near Utrecht in Holland by Roel van Norel and Zecc Architecten? It comes in at 40 m² or about 430 ft². Yes you can shake your head and say it’s great for a holiday but you couldn’t live there forever. Why not? I know I’d love to give it a try.

Rolies + Dubois architecten

Rolies + Dubois architecten are based in Antwerp, Belgium and they make magic happen with their minimalist, modern designs. I am especially smitten with the loft in the first of this selection of photos. I would just add about 100 plants and my cat herd and call it home. And the pool house in the last few photos is simple, dark and all you really need.

No you’re not going crazy. This is not yesterday’s post. Thanks to a reader’s comment I’m stalking the concrete luxe house. It’s for sale and that means there are loads more photos on the realtor’s website as well as a floor plan to help figure it all out. Even though there has been some judicious styling for the shots I think I love the house even more because of the evidence of everyday life. A family lives here. Art is on the wall. Clothes hang in a wardrobe. New furniture has been added over time. Concrete House 1 by Auhaus Architecture for sale via hockingstuart. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking 1

I’m stalking in Stockholm. An apartment with those old Swedish building bones we all salivate over. You know… tall windows allowing light to stream in, double doors to fling open as you progress from room to room. It’s missing the traditional kakelugn stove but there is a bath tub in the bedroom (in case you need more than the usual white tiled Swedish apartment shower room), a walk-in closet and a terrace.
