This bright and airy extension to a California bungalow by Melbourne-based BG Architecture is all about flexible open plan living and a seamless transition between inside and out. Favourite bits? The generous daybed by the expansive window (which you just know will hide great storage) and the simple, modern lines of the kitchen warmed by wood and the terracotta lights. These stylish family quarters are the perfect relaxed oasis from the bustle of the outside world.

After all this time. After all the rooms I’ve seen. Still love this place. I remember when I first saw that kitchen wall and those brass taps in Elle Decoration UK all those years ago. Collage House by Jonathan Tuckey Design.
Luxury and style in a house only 11ft (that’s just over 3m) wide. The narrow dwelling rises over 3 storeys and has been selectively gutted and thoughtfully renovated to create a fab family home. There’s even a little surprise at the end of the garden. The Warren Mews Townhouse in the Cobble Hill neighbourhood of Brooklyn by Ensemble Architecture and Elizabeth Roberts Design.
