Black and white with hits of vibrant green , deep blues and powder pink. It’s about the drama of contrast but also a celebration of natural material, of indoor and out, of public and private, of minimalism and exploring the local building vernacular. Most of all it’s about collaboration between Jen Langston and Heather A. Wilson Architect and of course their clients.

Quintessentially English … again

The last time I featured interior designer Laura Stephens’ work it was a quintessential English townhouse. All wallpaper and chintz, overstuffed armchairs and family antiques, lamps with pleated shades on tables, entry hallways leading the eye to stairs with runners, country-style kitchens and roll-top baths. Now if we just add a Cotswold stone historic cottage in an area of outstanding beauty, what do you get? Why just about everyone’s vision of the perfect country bolthole. Welcome to Well Cottage in the Cotswolds.

A colourful historic farmhouse

It’s the meeting of two halves. It’s traditional and contemporary, country and coastal, colour and pattern, farmhouse and now event and accommodation space. The whole is a country house chock full of personality and style, strong and bold. Greyleigh in Kiama north of Sydney by Duet.

“This project, designed for a creative couple and their two children, converted a non-descript backyard into an outdoor living space with a pool and new freestanding casita building for additional living and entertaining space.”

An amazing transformation of a nondescript backyard into a multilevel entertaining space with a pool, alfresco dining and a casita that provides extra accommodation. Garner Pool & Casita by Elizabeth Baird Architecture & Design.

It’s about colour and joy as well as storage and sightlines. This handsome, four-storey Edwardian home exudes comfort and conviviality without compromising on practicality. The ground floor plan was rationalised, storage prioritised with a home for everything and everything in its home as well as lots of opportunities to display the family’s “treasures”.
