If you think your home lacks a certain whimsical or creative energy, then this project by Alberto Villalobos is packed full of creative ideas that are a lot of fun and pack a punch. It starts with ceramic dogs flanking the front door. Then a random swirl pattern painted on the foyer floor. A planter of ferns built under a window. An ombre stair runner. A green and gold kitchen. A patchwork terrazzo floor. A monochromatic orange office. A dramatic black and brass bathroom. Yesssssssss to all of these elements.
I love the creativity and open plan of this apartment in Kaohsiung City, Taiwan. Unlike the usual parent-child space planning, which seeks to fill every place to meet the needs of all family members, here the designer chose the “children’s perspective” as the theme, supplemented by the needs of adults. The designer seeks to make a blank canvas from the spacious multi-layer space, and add a little bit of colorful pigment that is easy to mix to match to every room so that the little master can over time gradually fill in the colors and complete the mosaic with his own personality. In order to allow the children who have been at home for a long time more freedom, we decided to abandon the original house structure and adopt an open layout. This allows every corner of the room to play a different mission. It is a self-contained living space that can be controlled by the child independently. Designed by HAO Design.
The home of landscape designer Will Dangar, architecture by Andrew Burges and interiors curated by David Harrison and Karen McCartney of Design daily, it’s a design dream and you can stay there. Bismark House, a four bedroom urban oasis minutes walk from Bondi Beach is the ultimate Sydney experience. Now we just have to wait for the borders to open.
The house is a renovated mid century modern gem from the 60s but the garden is all modern. Modern mid century modern. Get it? Lush planting, crazy paving, architectural plants and pots, sandstone and subtropical. Love it. Bellevue Hill 1 by Dangar Barin Smith.

Dining inside restaurants is forbidden again while covid numbers skyrocket and temperatures drop here in Ottawa which means you can wear many layers and dine under a tent surrounded by heat lamps, order in or cook your own damn dinner. It’s been a while since I dined in a restaurant and I’m fairly certain I have never dined inside one that was decorated in steampunk style and I really dig this one, located in a traditional terrace house on Kaohsiung city, Taiwan, and designed by HAO Design.
