Hi everybody! We’re still here. The new blog is coming along just fine. We’re tidying up and fine tuning. What a job to move 11 years of content from one platform to another. Phew! Almost there. In the meantime lets enjoy a little real estate stalking in the salubrious Sydney suburb of Woollahra. Colour, fabulous art, historic home, modern living, leafy green courtyard and great location. It even has the current “it” chair in Australia, the Malawi chair welcoming you on the front veranda. Link here while it lasts.
Because there is nothing hotter than the combination of concrete, velvet and black.
With a humble and intimate approach to the interior, Nærvær is formed by a casual atmosphere with small spaces and niches for guests to enjoy. With an interior design defined by an array of stone, wood and metal, the materials are all natural and have deliberately been altered in order to create dark and industrial surfaces that matches the mood of the place. This conscious focus on tactility brings a warm, material richness to the interior that naturally compliments the raw concrete walls and industrial framework of the space. By NORM.ARCHITECTS.
Hey dear readers. The blog redesign is taking a bit longer than expected so in the meantime Jo and I will share a post here and there so you don’t forget about us, and because we are frankly going through withdrawal. I guess that is what posting daily for over 11 years does to you. I came across this Los Angeles home this morning by Alexandra and Michael Misczynski of Atelier AM and had to share because I am dying over the earthy, rustic, neutral feel of the spaces.
I am hopelessly in love with this 110m² apartment in Paris’ 9th arrondissement. It makes me desperately want to collect some beni ourain rugs (that I’ve been avoiding forever because they don’t mix well with cat barf), hang a black shag rug on a wall, get husband to build some built-ins and paint them a bold colour, paint a tree mural, get another cat but this time a black and white that’s floofy, have some steel and glass walls built somewhere for something….

I am smitten with the neon yellow detail on the top of the baseboards. So subtle and awesome. Also cool how it ties into the bedding below.
