Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 4 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

A lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend. It doesn’t feel right. So many of us have lost our jobs. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. The interior design studio of Yasmin Saleh Ghoniem of YSG (formerly Amber Road). Stay safe!

 

 

I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Australian beach hot spot of Byron Bay and the house I have found typifies a style I have come to call Byron Bay boho coastal. Think of a neutral colour palette of sands and earth and white, mix in a natural materials palette, wood and stone, jute and linen and rattan. A little bit coastal, a little bit Scandi but then we add the boho layer. Hammocks and macrame, dried palm leaves and pampas. It’s hippy meets hip, eco warrior meets entrepreneur (with deep pockets because Byron Bay has overtaken Sydney for highest medium house price. This laid back beach home up in the hills has a guide price of $2 to $2.2 million. Oh you do get a little studio over the garage that you could list on Airbnb to help with the mortgage. Link here while it lasts.

“When design minded individuals connect in the way we did with our Rotterdam Terrace client, magic happens.”

From the six-meter windows and pooling linen curtains to the oak fronted kitchen with its green and caramel coloured stone countertops. From the white painted, exposed rough brick to the expanse of smooth concrete floors.  Brass details, vintage leather, filmy track screening of windows and wardrobes. Pared back with a wabi sabi meets modern vibe. Rotterdam Terrace by Dutch firm Avenue Design Studio.

Rural French in Arizona

Old versus new. American desert and French Provincial. Rustic stone juxtaposed with smooth plaster and tiles. Inside reaches out through walls of steel and glass and climbing through it all is a sinuous staircase of wood and iron. Rough luxe versus sophisticated modern living. At its heart this rambling stone edifice is first and foremost a gathering place for family and friends. Private residence #4 at Silverleaf Scottsdale, Arizona OZ Architects.
