Encore, encore!

Oh the drama! Oh the theatre! Oh the inspiration! What else would you expect from Lyon-based designer Claude Cartier? A master of colour, texture and pattern his work may divide opinions but it is always on the cutting edge of design.

“The success of d’Estaville is an architectural response which suits contemporary living yet respects the significance of this Heritage Victoria listed dwelling. Contemporary design, including new furniture and lighting softens the grand scale of the original home and creates spaces which are comfortable and intimate.”

Sophisticated, über stylish and sympathethic with its rich heritage retained. And what’s lurking in the garden? Why an old air raid shelter converted to a wine cellar! d’Estaville in the Melbourne suburb of Kew by NTF Architecture

This contemporary extension to a Federation home in Sydney’s Bondi is light, bright and family friendly. The open plan, luxe but subtle material palette and the layering of texture result in welcoming modern living that brings this beautiful old home into a new century.

Modern classic

Formal and relaxed, classic and contemporary, inside to out. It’s the perfect mix of the best of the original California bungalow and a modern extension to the rear. Calm and welcoming with restrained touches of luxury modern living. My favourite space? Why the kitchen with its modern reworking of an art deco vibe. Queens Park House by Sydney-based Arent & Pyke.

A modern, sculptural home in Texas

I really love the bright, neutral, modern vibes happening in this Texas home designed by Amanda Brooke. The entertainment feature wall is a brilliant design choice, with built-in lighting and storage, and the brass accents in the kitchen with matching marble is gorgeous. (Photos: Jack Thompson)
