“In the same way that a good suit remains in fashion, interiors can be timeless if they are well proportioned, employ good materials, and suit the people they are built for. Functionality, quality and beauty are my long-standing design principles.”  – Sarah Davidson Interiors

Timeless, sophisticated, custom yet inviting. My favourite type of house.

Not really working out, more like stretching out on a Saturday. Warrior One, a yoga studio designed by Melbourne-based interior design studio GOLDEN is “a physical manifestation of sophisticated, contemporary coastal culture, reflective of a space designed for transcendent experiences.”

I’ll confess. I may have green thumbs when it comes to gardening but my veggie bed is a spectacular failure. Might have something to do with preparing the beds, weeding and all the hard work you have to put in. I like a jungle of a garden that looks after itself. Now I have the perfect solution for my failed veggie patch. A Malvern East garden by Melbourne-based landscape designer Kate Seddon.

“What had been an expansive vegetable plot at the rear of this family home was to be transformed. There was a need for foliage cover, for another outdoor living zone for teenagers and young adults to congregate, for a more attractive outlook from living spaces … central to the redesign was a generous open graveled void defined by two L shaped concrete benches.”

A beautiful oasis

Sometimes you need a beautiful oasis away from this crazy, crazy world. I’ll be curled up on that sofa staring out the doors. Calm and cocooned in a elegantly relaxed home Connecticut House by Billy Cotton.

Modern and moody

A contemporary addition to a grand Victorian house is a moody, sleek and sophisticated cave. But before you think heavy and dark walls of glass draw your eyes to lush garden courtyard spaces while allowing light in. Malvern House by Melbourne-based architectural studio Figureground.
