Inspired by the Modernist ideals of truth in material and connection to nature this design is overlaid with a casual eclecticism. Mid-century, contemporary and custom pieces sit within a simple concrete formwork box with soaring ceilings and large windows framing views of the local landscape. Bespoke handcrafted elements soften the concrete structure, creating comfortable conversational spaces and accentuating materiality and texture. The design prioritizes everyday use across five levels, fulfilling the clients’ desire for a real sense of fun and openness. Bunker in the Treetops by Esoteriko.
I love a glimpse into a designer’s own home especially when they take the chance to think outside the box. Tali Roth‘s exuberant and eclectic style shines through in her Melbourne home. Colour, design classics and her own pieces create a fabulous and fun family home. “Textural, layered & useful spaces full of bold forms and patinas you can literally lean in and touch.”

Situated in a historic Victorian mansion block, this one-bedroom flat boasts stunning vistas of Notting Hill and Kensington. Homeowner and designer Nigel opted to maintain a separate eat-in kitchen and turned to Neptune‘s Suffolk collection to complement the building’s classic aesthetics. A pink and black colour palette is elegant while strategic cabinet choices and lighting solutions amplify the feeling of spaciousness. With a repurposed floor cabinet now a bespoke dresser and an L-shaped seating area under the sash window the kitchen has been transformed into an inviting albeit bijou entertaining haven.
Reimagining the traditional bungalow, this stunning urban house in Atwater, Los Angeles, seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor living. Turning its back to the street the living spaces open onto a vibrant backyard. Lovingly planted with wildflowers, edible berries, and grasses by the homeowners the backyard evokes a profound sense of intimacy and connection. The main living area unites the living, dining and kitchen spaces in an open concept offering a delightful treehouse-like view over the backyard oasis. Modern Bungalow by Rios.
