John Pawson

I am often captivated by the beauty in minimalist architecture. While I don’t think I can ever live in a space without ‘stuff’, it’s almost soothing to know that some people out there have the restraint to live so simply. British designer John Pawson is known for his minimalist aesthetic. His homes are absolutely stunning and I would be honoured to live in one of them…but with some stuff. 🙂

“Whimsy, luxury, humor, and, above all, STYLE… “ Doesn’t every room need it? Styling and art direction firm, Creative & Sons, belives so. These Austin Texas stylists create dreams for the editorial and digital services. They’re the ones that zhush the spaces and, with the photographer, craft an image that just sucks us in and leaves us panting for more. Dream weavers. Show offs.

“Do you live here alone?” I yelled back over my shoulder as I fumbled with the door knob. What confronted me was the most outrageous bathroom I think I have ever seen in real life. “Don’t worry”, I mumbled as I counted the tooth brushes on the sink. We’d struck up a casual conversation in a pub round the corner from my cousin’s flat the previous day. As you do. She was a stylist. She had regaled me with tales of her home over a few pints. Did I want to see it? Have a coffee? I wasn’t prepared for this. “I suppose you wouldn’t mind if I moved in?” I asked shaking the water from my hands as I re-entered the kitchen.

No need to ply me …

… with alcohol to make me fall for this home by Dutch interior architects i29. Modern and fabulous with a limited palette of grey and white. The hero though is the plywood used repeatedly throughout the home. An often overlooked, “second class” building material is the standout here. That and the open plan design, the fireplace, the walls of glass. No definitely the plywood 😉
