An elegantly understateded home for a fashion designer and her family sees a contemporary redesign that respects the historic building in Sydney’s eastern suburbs while pushing finishes and forms. Think grand and wordly layered with textures and tones. Interior design and styling by Alwill and architecture by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

When a textile and jewellery designer approached Brad Krefman of BK Interior Design to redesign her home in the hills of Mill Valley, California what was the result? A home that is bright and open, functional with high end finishes, light filled and fabulous, contemporary with a Scandinavian vibe, the perfect home for the client and her family.
P.S. If you love that fabulous painting in the dining room it’s Cool With Chloe, 2015 40×42 inches, acrylic on cut paper by Reed Anderson.
I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in the Northern New South Wales “it” holiday town of Byron Bay. It’s stylish and chic but also boho and alternative, the place where Sydney-siders escape their stratospheric real estate market … except that Byron Bay now holds the dubious title of most expensive market in Australia. Today I am sharing a simple beachside getaway (but definitely not beach front), relaxed coastal living for just $3.3 million. Ouch! On the bright side that’s Australian Dollars so overseas readers need not fear because our currency is definitely weak at the moment and I guess you can always rent out the backyard studio on Airbnb to help with the mortgage. Link here while it lasts.
It’s an interesting mix, moody master bedroom and a tactile, almost organic bathroom in the lightest shade of grey. Inspired by luxurious Greek villas think sinuous shapes offset by angular joinery, light bouncing off walls, floating drapes, a calm oasis in a hot, hot city.

I had to post some more spaces designed by London-based design team Barlow & Barlow because this first kitchen is giving me all the feels and I can’t get over how gorgeous it is. And I don’t even like blue! (ok I’m imagining it in black instead). Everything else below is just so full of colour and pattern and general boldness as I come to expect from them.
