A total refurbishment of this central Madrid apartment is all about the art of mixing. Mixing styles, periods, materials and colour. From the crisp white salon with its mid century vibes and turquoise accents to the earthy wicker of the dining room to the dashes of bold pattern throughout, it’s fresh and fabulous, chic and sharp.

Still no internet at home. Still relying on my phone. Still making spelling mistdkes because of my fat fingers. Still in love with everything that Workstead designs. Woven rattan … swoon.
I’m stalking in Sydney’s inner suburb of Surry Hills, walking through its historic streets indulging my love of 19th century terrace houses. Behind this grey facade is a house with a flipped floor plan, living on the top, bedrooms on the bottom. It’s not the floor plan change that drew me in. It’s the bright, white interiors punctuated with tribal carpets and pillows, the artwork and a lovely, simple dining room. Link here while it lasts.
This bachelor is bound to score some dates with his fantastic pad in San Francisco designed by Studio Munroe. This single level three bedroom home for a 20-something bachelor needed to respect its classic Edwardian detailing while channeling the spirit and lifestyle of its young owner and the dynamic surrounding neighborhood. Unexpected wallpaper, deep jewel toned paint, and a mix of bespoke furnishings did the trick. (Photos: Thomas Kuoh)

An attractive entry tempts you into this Edwardian era house and once inside you will not be disappointed. A soft white and grey colour palette allows the modern furnishings to sit comfortably within the beautiful, traditional bones. My favourite spot? The dining area off the kitchen. I just can’t make up my mind if I like the glimpse from the kitchen more than the glimpse from the garden. Louisa by Templeton Architecture in collaboration with Lou Prentice Interiors.
