A sprawling Bridgehampton house and the stylish curation of designer Timothy Godbold translates to a traditional vernacular mixed with clean modern lines, vintage with high end, natural materials, effortless sophistication and a casual summertime chic. It’s my Hamptons dream not some clichéd nightmare. (You can see my previous post on Timothy’s work here.)
I love everything that Swedish design purveyors Artilleriet Studio turn their hands to. Yes of course their shop stocks the most divine pieces of global design. Yes their pop-up shop set design social media on fire. What more could you want? Well they are doing interiors now and here is just a taste of their creative genius.
Over a year ago I shared with you an amazing garden makeover by West Australian based Ascher Smith Exterior Styling & Landscaping . (Click here to see the transformation.) Well Ascher and her team have been working their magic again. Sad, forlorn and downright ugly before, after it’s an all white delight. Everyone with small suburban backyards should be so lucky to have the perfect alfresco family space.
I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick, a Victorian-era residence that has been renovated and extended. The light grey rendered facade gives just a hint of the modern house behind the historic walls. Open plan living, huge walls of glass and of course that inside outside living that Australians crave in their homes. Link here while it lasts.
Modernist Italian design meets a listed Victorian building in Notting Hill, London and the result is not a chaotic clash but a beautifully curated, family home by Francesca Oggioni. Key features are the muted palette and natural finishes, the preservation of lovely old features like the stone staircase and the streamlined storage that fades into the spaces allowing that minimalist look devoid of necessary, everyday clutter.
