Kitchen love

Posted on Tue, 31 May 2022 by midcenturyjo

Why is it that even though I have renovated my kitchen and I’m very, very happy with it I find myself cheating on it? You know. Casting longing looks at other kitchens, saving pictures to Pinterest boards, dreaming and scheming. Like this one by bespoke kitchen makers Boffe Design. (In case you absolutely need to know the island is Admonter Oiled Hacked Spruce.)

Big is not always better

“Whoever said bigger is better certainly hasn’t visited our South Melbourne Retreat.

I love a small inner-city garden. I love clever planning and planting, walls of green, the perfect mix of hard and soft landscaping, the whole idea of a tiny oasis right in the middle of a bustling city and I love this garden by Ian Barker Garden Design.

Heidi Caillier strikes again with yet another project I am absolutely in love with. The combination of patterns and warm colours and that sexy black kitchen are making my heart skip a beat. GORG. (Photos: Haris Kenjar)

A barn complex on Long Island

Posted on Mon, 30 May 2022 by KiM

This barn complex in Bellport has a main barn for sleeping, a small cottage for cooking and eating, and a secondary barn for swimming, exercising and spa. The outdoor space contained by the three structures becomes the heart of the complex that is used in so many different ways throughout the seasons. GIMME ALL THE OUTBUILDINGS!!! WOW this would be a dream! By Cicognani Kalla Architect.

Yester House

Posted on Sun, 29 May 2022 by KiM

A labour of love for our clients, the development of this A-listed stately home was led by their vision that they had for Yester House, located in East Lothian, Scotland. We worked closely with them (over four years) to bring this 17th century house into the 21st century, preparing it for modern family living while maintaining respect to the history of the architecture. The restoration was researched and sympathetic, but this is no museum – it’s a vibrant home for a young family. What a dream home with soooooo much space! Designed by Jeffreys Interiors.
