“Sybil is a place for gatherings. The arrangements of buildings across the picturesque site generously provide an escape for family and friends. Implementing a deliberately rural pallet of raw yet delicate materials, we have carefully framed the landscape, providing visual context to each space. Designed to facilitate the clients desire to bring their loved ones together, Sybil becomes the context in which family memories are framed.”
Beautiful description of a beautiful space. Restrained, refined, considered. Sybil by Templeton Architecture.

I’m stalking a Victorian terrace house in the best street in one of my favourite Sydney suburbs, Redfern. In case you couldn’t tell it’s an interior designer’s own home. Which designer the listing does not divulge but if you know then spill the beans. Link here while it lasts.
Elena Frampton and her architecture, design and art advisement team at Frampton Co typically bring on the funk in their boldly graphic, highly artful spaces but this Bridgehampton estate is not that. And I love it just as much as say, this project, or this one. It’s modern farmhouse style with a calming, neutral colour scheme and art to coexist harmoniously.
This house in Notting Hill, London was designed by Harding and Read and is absolutely beautiful, particularly the dreamy kitchen! This distinguished Regency villa had been split up awkwardly into three flats. The key challenge was to weave the spaces back together in such a way that honoured the original proportions of the property and make best use of clumsier extensions that had been added over time. The client wanted the property to feel that it had evolved organically and also needed it to perfectly fit their modern family life. We designed architectural detailing that worked seamlessly with the original features and sourced furniture, fabrics and artworks, new and old, that celebrated the personal stories of each family member.
Oh, to have 5 stories and 7000 sq ft of space to play with. This townhouse designed by Rafael de Cárdenas of Architecture at Large has a casual elegance I adore. This expansive Lower Manhattan residence, located in The Greenwich Lane, is imbued with RDC/AAL’s characteristically rich atmospheric nuance. The five-story home has been designed entirely around the principle of a vertical chromatic temperature gradient. The earthen reds and warm peach hues of the garden and parlor levels give way to the subdued grays of the master suite, the playful greens of the children’s level, and the cool blues of the penthouse. The spaces are notably augmented by a series of artworks drawn from the collection of Beth Rudin DeWoody.
