Shortlisted in the 2012 Residential Decoration category of the Australian Interior Design Awards this elegant yet relaxed family home by Denai Kulcsar Interiors. A fluid style marrying classic with contemporary. There is glamour and sophistication but also a sense of family and comfort. The house is serene and grounded, practical and beautiful with a touch of drama to mix things up… just a little. Welcome to Park House.
A seamless melding of old and new, a simplicity, a truth to the designs, whether contemporary or with a nod to the traditional, a sense of humour and a love of the quirky, the found object and a relaxed and stylish vibe. Practical with panache. An easy going elan. Love the first kitchen. Love. At one moment dark and moody yet light and practical, a fabulous marriage of materials, wood and concrete, tile and stainless steel. Urban meets nature with an indy edge and you can still cook up a storm in the place. Great homes by Montreal based interior designer Catlin Stothers.
I’m lost in the London listings on onefinestay. “A fresh alternative to a hotel for a short stays, live like a local without compromising on service and comfort.” May be a slogan but it seems to be true. Look at this oasis in the bustling city. Love the grey walls (the listing says duck egg blue but my monitor is definitely reading more grey… I’m fantasising about that blue though), the pared back furnishings, a scattering of vintage and the historic details. Simplicity and style. So refreshing. Excuse me while I pop over to Beresford Terrace for a few days stay. I really need to straighten that sofa cushion ;)<
When I found the following home on AT Casa my heart just melted. I am craving neutrals these days and this home REALLY does it for me. Beautiful natural fabrics, everything bathed in whites and greys, all giving an air of romanticism and serenity. *SIGH* It’s PERFECT. (Photos by Andrea Martiradonna)
The other day a reader named Bo sent us this link to a black and white home on a Swedish real estate site. I thought it was a cool pad, but then while perusing the site I came across this home that really got me going. I LOVE the location, the open layout, the fresh colour scheme, the whitewashed wide plank hardwood, the grey trim, the black Smeg, the viewwwwww…….(thx Bo!)
