Pieter Vandenhout

Posted on Tue, 11 Aug 2020 by KiM

I am smitten with the designs of Belgian architect Pieter Vandenhout. Minimal in details but the details he does add (like statement windows and textured walls and wide plank floors) make such a statement. The kitchen below went straight into my inspiration folder. A kitchen that doesn’t look like a kitchen is everything.

A contemporary family retreat in Texas

Posted on Sun, 26 Jul 2020 by KiM

Now this is weekend living! This breathtaking glass home was once a bare-bones fish camp on the Llano River in the Texas Hill Country (a 48 acre piece of waterfront land) and eventually this home was built. A striking melange of limestone blocks, charred cedar planks, walls of glass, it’s modern and rustic, casual and tranquil. Via Garden & Gun. Architect: Michael Hsu Photos: Wynn Myers

I’m having heart palpitations over the Guatemalan home of designer Rodman Primack. Colours and patterns and textures (and the tile!!!!!) within spacious rooms and incredible soaring ceilings make this home spectacular.

The  vaulted ceiling of the patio area in this Castlecrag house by Sydney-based Holly Harbison Design frames the view beyond. Neo classical elements meet ancient landscape. Sophisticated and elegant, monumental but light as the breezes that are captured.
