Modern family living and a historic home. Can you have both? Will it look like an unholy mish mash? The Old Schoolhouse on the outskirts of Milton on the NSW South Coast by Christina Prescott Design (in collaboration with VIEW//THRU building design and Seed Garden Design) saw the addition of a new wing containing a large open plan living, kitchen and dining room. A sympathetic and stunning heart of the home.
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Thérapie Clinic by Kingston Lafferty Design.
(P.S. Our thoughts are with those who cannot go to work at any time because of the corona virus emergency. Stay safe and sound and may we all be able to swap “war” stories after the crisis has passed.)
My jaw dropped to the floor when I spotted this apartment on real estate site Lagerlings. An apartment in Sweden that isn’t slathered in white paint! The dark grey and pink is stunning and is perfection together. Also, massive pink sectional sofa for the win!
I think I have died and gone to heaven. This home I spotted on sköna hem is so incredibly beautiful with floor to ceiling architectural moldings (including a coffered ceiling unlike any I have ever seen) and when painted dark grey, they are even more dramatic and modern. Add in some modern furniture and lighting (the owners clearly have a thing for Knoll’s Saarinentulip tables and Flos lights) and this is a total dream.

One of my favourite design firms, Studio DB, created magic in this family home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The elegance of the architecture is brought down a notch with some beautiful shades of grey and an unexpected touch of glossy teal. Statement mid-century furniture and lighting mix with a bit of boho mixed in to the kid-friendly spaces create an eclectic and youthful vibe in what could have been a very stuffy, traditional home.
