Country touches and contemporary cool. This modern renovation of an early 19th century farmhouse by Sydney-based Rhys-Jones Interior Architecture sees organic finishes and clean lines mixed with references to the building’s past. A calm oasis from the city hustle.

With a strong emphasis on natural materials and the colours of the surrounding environment this Vaucluse house by Sydney-based The Unlisted Collective. No cliched nautical theme, no overworked blue and white colour palette. Just stone and bush. Rugged and refined.

From its elegant orangery style window and high ceilings in the living room to the cosy kitchen, from the verdant garden back through to the sweet and most likely hard-working scullery come laundry this London maisonette in Brondesbury Road has stolen my heart. Now if only I could move to London during the pandemic (my whole country is isolating from the world) I’d make it mine. For sale via UK historical home estate agency and sister agency to The Modern House Inigo.

“A 1970’s townhouse in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs has been transformed into a tranquil and spacious family home designed for entertaining, with a hint of a postmodern design aesthetic.”

It’s the light I love most in this redesign of a four split level home by Sydney-based Tom Mark Henry. Light pouring through the wall of windows, the central staircase with its open treads and glass balustrade and the repeated use of fluted glass.

P.S. We have changed ad providers and there is a weird glitch of multiple (and I mean multiple) ads turning up in the body of our posts. Rest assure we’re looking into it.
