Lots of brightness and warmth in this Michigan home designed by Jean Stoffer. It is a wonderful example of how to break up lots of white with some dark moments. The black front door, the dark kitchen coffee bar, the charcoal tile and millwork in the mudroom, the navy wainscotting and ceiling in the dining room, the dark green nursery…. all add drama and coziness.
Killing Matt Woods was inspired by the mid century modernism and the gardens and architecture of Palm Springs when designing The Rooftop bar at the Quarryman’s Hotel in Pyrmont, NSW, Australia. “The Rooftop” aims to attract the diverse crowds which populate the many creative offices & aims to attract the diverse crowds which populate the many creative offices & studio spaces within the Pyrmont peninsula, & hopes to give this City fringe suburbs occupants a genuine alternative environment from which to dance the night away. The circles that repeat throughout the space and the reclaimed multi-coloured timber floor make this eye-catching and really special.

I love this really pretty apartment in Madrid, home to Paula Ordovás, fashion journalist, influencer and blogger at Mypeeptoes. A pink sofa, brass accents, ornate mirrors and chandeliers give this space a feminine glam vibe. Some fun vintage finds are throughout – my favourite being the brass palm tree lamp from the 40’s in the photo above. SO FUN! Via Nuevo Estilo, photos by Pablo Sarabia.
I’m not sure I can ever really get behind minimalism, but this converted warehouse in Sydney transformed into a concrete bunker of sorts is really quite beautiful. That curved ceiling and the 2 story impact of it is spectacular. It’s incredible that such a simple architectural detail could add so much interest. I also love how the curve is found throughout the loft (sofa, console, mirror, shower door). Brutalism with a cocooning impact. Designed by Matt Woods.
It’s all about balance. A balance between crisp and modern and rustic and weathered. Rough versus smooth. A hint of scandi with a dose of Aussie. Light versus dark. Formally structured and sensuous and tactile. A fine balancing act indeed. Hunters Hill House by Handelsmann + Khaw.
