It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Rachel Comey LA by Elizabeth Roberts Architects. (Can we just file that rattan wall bench straight into our inspiration folders please?)
What do you get when you refurbish an apartment with great historic bones but the client wants modern minimalism? Why a stunning home with a contemporary edge and fabulous features from the past. I love the exposed brick walls juxtaposed with sleek industrial finishes and that wedding cake Art Noveau cornice contrasting with the simple plank walls. What do you think of the two part kitchen? By Madrid-based architectural and development studio Abaton with interiors by Batavia.

It’s small, it’s old and dare I say a little rickety but it’s packed full of character and life. Add in a killer central Sydney location and a fabulous Aboriginal art collection and I’m hooked. (How retrolicious is that Albert Namatjira prints vignette on the landing?) The land size is only 76m² and the auction price guide is $1.6 million so I won’t be buying but I can dream I’m the current owner and not the one who will buy it and redevelop it. For sale in Darlinghurst here while the link lasts.
Contemporary by the sea with a mid century vibe taken to the next level with terracotta floors, limewashed ceilings, concrete accents and Oblica fireplace. Add in the bold art works and on point furnishings and this is one cool beach shack in Jan Juc on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Unfortunately for us it has been quickly snapped up. Link here while it lasts.
It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish like the studio workspace of Webster Architecture & Interiors.
