“The success of d’Estaville is an architectural response which suits contemporary living yet respects the significance of this Heritage Victoria listed dwelling. Contemporary design, including new furniture and lighting softens the grand scale of the original home and creates spaces which are comfortable and intimate.”
Sophisticated, über stylish and sympathethic with its rich heritage retained. And what’s lurking in the garden? Why an old air raid shelter converted to a wine cellar! d’Estaville in the Melbourne suburb of Kew by NTF Architecture.

Two things about this Notting Hill artist studio that I must point out. 1 – Black walls win over white any day. 2 – If you are going to go minimal, do it like this. Earthy, edgy and textured. Saskia Blyth of Blyth-Collinson Interiors is responsible for nailing this space.
Modern architecture and interiors is not my first love but I appreciate the openness and light and simplicity. Like in this recently built Houston home designed by Laura U Interior Design. I love that fireplace statement wall in the living room and sculptural furnishings.
I think I’ll add stately manors to my castle ensemble for Sundays as they tend to be just as fabulous and a bit easier to find. I spotted Wardington Manor featured on Sköna hem and then found another feature of this glorious home on House & Garden. Located in Oxfordshire on 30 acres of picturesque property, this 15th century manor is an absolute dream. The woodwork, the plasterwork, and that stone flooring in the kitchen….*sigh* (photos: Michael Paul / Living Inside & Andrew Montgomery)
