A timeless black and white kitchen

Posted on Tue, 30 Jun 2020 by KiM

I am head over heels over this kitchen. Every inch if it. The drama of the contrast between black and white, with gold tones added in wood, art and the pendant, the soapstone countertops and integrated sink, the Indonesian rosewood armoire pantry (a Kijiji steal)….and perhaps my favourite touch is the fact that designer Inez Mazzotta (Kelly Hopter Interiors) left the window casings white and painted the rest of the window black. Graphic with a touch of subtlety.

Edgy glam in Beverly Hills

Posted on Fri, 26 Jun 2020 by KiM

Glamour with an edge – a favourite combo of mine as seen in this Beverly Hills home designed by Roxy Sowlaty. She’s a fan of anything gold, lucite or sparkly. Bring on the bling!

Modern Australian country

The perfect weekend getaway, linen, cane and soft hues in this renovated Queenslander style house in the Northern NSW hinterland. The modern Australian country vibe is just what I’m craving in these uncertain times. Bangalow house by Lennon Head based Louise Walsh Interior Design.

Floodlight House

Posted on Thu, 25 Jun 2020 by midcenturyjo

“The brief for an extension to a 1920’s house backing on to the Hobart rivulet and Fitzroy gardens called for increased visual and physical access to its garden setting. This was in stark contrast to the flood overlay planning requirements for the floor level to be raised above the site it sought to connect with. The resulting addition sets up a series of decks and landings at height intervals not requiring balustrades and gradually spills into the immediate garden drawing in the neighbouring park through large glazing and openings.”

A connection between in and out, light and shadow play, expansive view and glimpses through fins, new and old. Floodlight House by Crump Architects.

Modern family living and a historic home. Can you have both? Will it look like an unholy mish mash? The Old Schoolhouse on the outskirts of Milton on the NSW South Coast by Christina Prescott Design (in collaboration with VIEW//THRU building design and Seed Garden Design) saw the addition of a new wing containing a large open plan living, kitchen and dining room. A sympathetic and stunning heart of the home.
