Is the weekend really over? Time for a little Monday virtual getaway. We’re off to the inner Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst, the perfect base for shopping, coffee sipping and people watching. Where are we staying? The Naked Fox, the latest offering from boutique luxury holiday accommodation purveyor Contemporary Hotels. It’s a stylish art deco apartment perfect for dropping your bags and heading out or bringing back old friends and new for a drink. Fabulous art, dark wood furniture with immaculate white covers and a clever mirrored wall.
I spotted another London location home gem on Shoot Factory and I’m digging the vibes of this 2300 sq ft beauty. Pluses: lots of plants, some dark and moody chill spaces, a lush backyard, shaggy puppy, photography art.
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps is it’s somewhere stylish. Software company Identitii’s headquarters by Fellow.
If this isn’t the coolest hangout/games space/playroom I don’t know what is! When your client hands you a 12-car garage from the 1980’s it is time to get creative. Four bays became a play room complete with four Pullman-style queen bunk beds, a shop became a dining hall and party room, and three bays became an indoor sport court. Working with durable finishes, eclectic furnishings, and outdoor fabrics a bulletproof retreat was created for children of all ages. By Hoedemaker Pfeiffer.

This home could not be more fun!! LOVE IT!!! By 2LG Studio. An edwardian cottage in the charming setting of St Albans in need of modernisation. We re-designed the entire property, added a large kitchen extension, first floor extension and loft, doubling the size of the property to make a characterful family home. The clients passion for travel, the sea and surfing, is evident throughout with many items sourced from salvage yards and antique shops in Sri Lanka. The striking blue pillars are a great example. Throughout the property we specified bespoke encaustic tiling, patterned carpet, exposed plaster, floral wallpaper and vintage lighting to give a lived in, eclectic home that reflects the warmth of the family. In the kitchen, custom cement island in pale blue and grey swirls compliments the solid wood worktops and impressive range cooker. This happy home has a through-line of bold colour that brings it life, something that is a signature of our design work.
