A luxury music-themed home in Austin

Posted on Fri, 24 Sep 2021 by KiM

Austin in Stereo is a 7,300 sq ft, 4 bedroom home in West Austin where nearly every room of the house was designed by Fern Santini with a unique art or music-themed element. A bar, turntable, Sonos speakers, signed photos of music legends, Woodstock wallpaper, lots of dark walls and graphic patterns make this a really stylin’ and party-ready home.

A 19th century former corner store in Sydney

What was once a Victorian Georgian corner store is now a modern, 2-story, 4 bedroom home with original and new details like sandstone walls, travertine floor pavers, mother of pearl mosaic tile, leathered quartzite, venetian plaster and stained glass floral reliefs. This is an honourable example of how to renovate a traditional space whilst transforming it for modern times. By YSG. (Photos: Prue Ruscoe)

A U-shaped newly built home

Posted on Wed, 22 Sep 2021 by KiM

I loooove the idea of a U-shaped home with a central courtyard. This home is a wonderful example of this concept. By LyonsKelly. This house is a new build, replacing a 1940s home that had been severely damaged by fire. The new house has a U-form plan with living spaces arranged around a central courtyard. The master bedroom is located in one arm of the U shape; with children’s bedrooms in the other. The front exterior is clad in timber which is used to trail climbing plants. The choice of furniture integrates existing pieces that the clients brought from their previous home as well as pieces specially designed for the space. The aim was that the house appears timeless and relaxed. To that end, we used classic designs as well as more contemporary furniture.

A 17th century Mudéjar vacation home in Spain

I found the name of Spanish interior designer Javier González Sánchez-Dalp via Instagram but when I went looking for a website in the hopes of finding his portfolio I instead found this feature in Nuevo Estilo of his renovated 17th century Mudéjar-style home in the town of Carmona in southwestern Spain. It is spectacular – particularly the outside spaces so I had to start off with those photos. (Photos: Montse Garriga)

A Tribeca loft

I keep thinking I am over the idea of loft living but then I come across a loft that is sooooo well done like this one designed by Damon Liss and my love for these spaces is rekindled. Especially when it includes exposed brick and a sweet outdoor space. (Photos: Joshua McHugh)
