A renovated 1908 home in Massachusetts

This 1908 home in Cambridge, Massachusetts is a wonderful example of showing an old home some love through a well-considered renovation that maintains character and history whilst adding some whimsical touches with colours and wallpapers. The result is a charming and completely approachable home. Designed by Mandarina Studio.

Using a small garden space creatively, especially a tiny backyard leading onto a laneway, opens up so much more living space in this inner Sydney terrace.

It has been a few years since I featured the work of Vancouver based design firm Hazel and Brown. It seems their modis operandi continues to be white and white and more white with some pale neutrals mixed in. It’s contemporary, inviting and timeless. (Photos: Ema Peters)
