This bedroom suite created by Minosa Design is out of this world. It’s a space so beautiful that if I saw it in person I’d have to have a seat in case I passed out. This takes indoor/outdoor living to the extreme. This home is perched and cantilevering off a hill in the prestigious suburb of Dover Heights in Sydney’s East. It sits on the cliff face with 2 levels above ground and four levels down. The Brief: To create a resort style ensuite retreat, that incorporated the natural beauty of the cliff face behind and had views to the beautiful Bondi ahead. It was to be cutting edge in its design, it had to defy convention, be private and fit in with the sharp architectural style. It was decided from this special design process that the entire space needed to be thought about as one whole floor, rather than one room. With no dividing internal walls to obstruct views it was the only way the special design could be resolved without difficulty or any further exceptions.
A Californian Bungalow trapped in a 50s time warp has been given new life by Melbourne based MAKE architecture. Reminders of the house’s past link to the new. Where possible materials were reused in the renovation and the new layout allows flexible use of the rooms including a sunroom once considered as wasted space.
“This project goes against the too common ‘gut-and-re-build’ approach to interior projects. Rather than totally strip the interior, the existing building and its past lives are treated carefully and with respect. The renovation is considered as another layer to the life of the house rather than as a whole new story.”
Helloooooo one of cutest bathrooms I’ve ever seen. I love your flat black ceiling and gold dangling light bulb fixtures and white mosaic tiles and white painted brick and trough sink and library card shelving unit and fish art.
I’m really liking this kitchen too. And it matches the bathroom aboove. 🙂 I don’t know where the fridge is and as much as I love the lack of upper cabinets, I don’t know how pratical the space is. But it’s got lots of counter space and a really cool modern vintage vibe.

Sweet jeezus this bathroom is an absolute DREAM! Via Minosa. The clients were searching for a fresh contemporary space that better utilised their small bathing space. The client wanted the bathroom to be connected to the dressing room which was located next to the ensuite and the bedroom there after. They wanted a good use of artificial light as the bathroom had NO window. The client did not like grout as was searching for a seamless product to apply to all walls and the shower floor. The designers choose to remove the wall between the dressing room and the ensuite and in its place installing the Rimidesio sliding (oversized) door system, and an engineered Oak floor. The two main focal points are the stunning Antonio Lupi freestanding bath and the floating wall hung Vanity unit with the very impressive Gessi Goccia tapware and oversized basins. The faucets and tub filler are so gorgeous!!!
For years this has been and continues to be my favourite backyard of all time. I am determined to have this setup one day. EXACTLY as in the photo but with different chairs. And cats roaming instead of a dog. (via Dwell)
I can’t get this out of my head either. It is the definition of an outdoor room. Simple yet perfect. (via Kennedy Nolan Architects)
I used to be sold on the idea of having a dining space that doubled as a library, but now I am even more smitten with book storage in hallways. (via The Design Files)
Cutest bathroom design. I need this in my life. (via Incorporated)
Another dream bathroom. The materials make me weak in the knees. I want my whole house to look like this. (via Urbis)
Beds are boring for the most part. This one isn’t. Great DIY project. (via MilK)
Another interesting bed set-up. I would totally use this as a lounge area. Gorg. (via STUDIO OINK)
LOVE this lighting. Would be fab down a long hallway. (via Richard Lindvall)
I am still obsessed with this simple lighting. Imagine several of these over the countertop of a long narrow kitchen. (via Tribe Studio Architects)
I want to make stuff everywhere with conduit. (via Sanna Lindberg)
