I have always thought that the best soundtrack to have in “playing” at home is the sound of waves lapping on a beach. I guess I can also say that the best “artwork” is a stunning view. I’m stalking a Peter Stutchbury designed home in Newport, northern Sydney. Don’t miss the video. It really helps make sense of the layout. Link here while it lasts.
Hard edged sophistication softened by lush fabrics, texture on texture, rambling plantings. Light and air pour into double height spaces with tall doors and windows. No concrete bunker but rich and lush. H House by Bruce Stafford Architects.
What a stunning loft. This 1200 sq ft space in London is a dream with massive windows along one entire side, concrete ceilings, white painted floorboards, and an eclectic touch with stained glass doors and windows and patterned tile. I would maybe redo the kitchen and add some actual cabinetry to make it more functional. Other than that the decor is really fun and random with an fairly simple colour pallet. LOVE this.

Concrete, wood, brick, floor to ceiling windows….sounds like the making of a sweet apartment I would say. This space by Brazilian architecture firm Play Arquitetura (the folks that brought you the cat apartment) just needs a few rugs to warm up the space and a few more accessories and it is pretty much on point.
Lucyna Kołodziejska is a decorating machine! I featured one of her latest projects a couple of weeks ago, and here is another! It is a home for a young family (a couple with 2 boys) about 25 kms from Gdansk, who wanted a space to entertain, and to showcase their poster collection. I really love this one – neutrals with accents in black and blue throughout the home make it very cohesive. This is one of my favourite projects of Lucyna’s.
