I have always loved that first image. I posted it way back here. It’s Tregoning House at Avalon Beach, Sydney by architect Daniel Raymond. The sad thing is that for ages it was the only glimpse of the large barn like extension that I could find. Somehow I just knew that I would love the rest of the house. Raymond is now a director, along with Thomas Martin, of Rama Architects and it’s there my wish was granted. More photos!!

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it better be somewhere stylish … and chic and beautiful and totally somewhere you’d want to live let alone work. Well that, at least, is the way I feel about interior designer Sarah Davison‘s Kellett St Design Studio.
“The spaces we craft are liveable, engaging and beautifully resolved, with a contemporary feel in our distinctively effortless style. We achieve this through deeply thought out spatial planning alongside the use of bespoke materials, customised detailing, exceptional palettes and textural layerings.” – Studio Gorman.
This timeless and elegant renovation by the Sydney-based interior design firm is the perfect example. Think hand painted joinery, calacutta marble and bespoke textiles.
“A contemporary design yet sympathetic to the Victorian era of the existing house. A new pavilion structure with a dramatic roof form creates a strong connection to the outdoors & maximises natural light. Tranquility was a key concept that we followed through with keeping the finishes and textures in a soft tone with fine black detailing through the fireplace design, curtain rails, steel windows & door framing. Light filled, elegant and robust to handle family life.”
It’s what Australian architects do so well, a modern addition to a historic building without loss of integrity or style. Canning Street House by Technē Architecture and Interior Design.

A big thanks to Adam for sending us a link to this absolutely breathtaking newly built home in Toronto that is for sale. The finishes and attention to detail in this home are really incredible.
What’s the result when a new build in an unbeatable location is meticulously designed from the ground up, selecting only the finest finishes, such as a striking floating staircase, an ingenious “hidden” kitchen and ultra-modern bifold doors that transform the entire living space into an indoor-outdoor paradise in an instant? A timeless neoclassical design with a spectacular blend of Parisian charm and modern luxury that inspires you to live out your best life. Step into this sophisticated, bright space that reflects all of the elegance of a French chateau; with grandeur-scale, crown-topped 11-foot ceilings and a breathtaking master suite floor with a large terrace overlooking Toronto’s skyline.
