Britt Crepain, Stefan Spaens and Joep Debie are the super creative architects that make up CSD Architecten, based in Antwerp, Belgium. I love all the funky details in each space – especially the steel, deep ledge windows of the slatted wood home.
Rustic barn meets exuberance and style. Quirky meets practicality. Concrete and chandeliers, modern art and aged oak beams. A barn conversion in Burgundy by Joséphine Gintzburger is pastoral perfection. It’s rough luxe and bucolic drama and all the modern comforts. A weekend retreat to be shared with family and friends.
Melbourne based interior designer Chelsea Hing is very versatile – check out an eclectic apartment (and restaurant) and a country-style home that Jo featured here in the past. Now it’s time for some modern touches, but what I love is that it’s not over the top modern. With the addition of some whimsical artwork (including a David Bromley piece), billowing curtains and a funky sofa pit in the media room, it’s a not-so-serious take on the style. And of course, how fab to have those moveable walls to open the indoors to the outdoors. (Architected by Richard Kerr)
Run away, far away to an exotic land. To a magical beach and a magical house. To Morocco and Essaouira. To a traditional Dar but one with a difference. Retro and funky, modern and quirky. Bespoke yet family orientated. You’ll find me by the open fire with my toes buried in the beni ouarain. Sidi Kauki via Airspace locations.
Where the rainforest meets the sea on a Brazilian island there is a sliver of sand. Where the rainforest meets the sea there are palm trees. Where the rainforest meets the sea there is a house. A stone house and concrete and glass house. A perfect beach party house. Casa Paraty by Marcio Kogan of Studio MK27.
