Polish design is centre stage again. The creative scene in this country is hot hot hot at the moment. Case in point this stunning private home by 2kul Interior Design. mixes the right on trend black and white with layers of natural finishes, rough luxe and texture and revs it up a notch with an amazing industrial effect balustrading to the staircase. It’s a clever mix of old and new and the perfect hard edged modern foil to a softened, almost shabby meets scandi vibe.
Love the styling of the latest range by Australian furniture designers Zuster. Fabulous furniture. Wonderful “rooms”. Seriously how sexy are those American Oak legs on the Sabrina Lounge! By turning to the dark side the sisters have found the perfect counterfoil to their new range. Inspiring. Beautiful.
P.S. The zebra is a resin model. The partridge … well that’s not.
I couldn’t resist. I had to share more fabulous images from photographer Fran Parente’s portfolio. This time he has captured the essence of this Santiago, Chile house by architect Mathias Klotz. Dark yet bright. Modern with a touch of retro. Love the bike hung from that amazing staircase, the street presence of the building, the lower position of the windows in the bedroom as well as the run of book underneath. South American design is so hot right now and so are their photographers.
Today’s reader request comes from Beverly: I am considering painting my kitchen cabinets black, at least the lowers. Most likely will do the uppers, which are doorless, in white to keep the room from being too dark. There is no natural light. Do you have any inspirations? I sure do!! I LOVE kitchens with black, whether it be just an island, or a wall, or cabinets. Now without natural light maybe painting the uppers white is a good idea but if you have a reasonable amount of wall space and you paint that white, then you likely could get away with painting all the cabinets black. Plus whatever you are displaying in the door-less uppers will show so nicely against the black. I couldn’t find many photos with black lowers and white uppers but you’ll see in many of these photos that white uppers maybe aren’t necessary.

Molly wrote us last month with a request to see photos of black floors. I think black floors are HOT, and one day, when I do not have 7 cats, I shall have black floors somewhere in my home. (Interestingly, most of these are from Scandinavian websites).
