BKK Architects

Posted on Tue, 24 Jul 2012 by KiM

Melbourne based architectural firm BKK Architects was founded in 2000 by Tim Black, Julian Kosloff and Simon Knott. These guys have got it going on. They have won a ton of awards, been featured in a zillion publications, and have captured my attention with their creativity and picturesque designs. I am in awe of the exteriors of the homes they have created. The imagination, attention to detail and understanding of the landscape is so inspiring. A handful of my favourites from their portfolio are below.

Book storage

Posted on Fri, 13 Jul 2012 by KiM

I love books and magazines. I have a pretty healthy collection, especially of decor magazines (although on black box recycle days I am slowly getting rid of old ones as I don’t think I’ll be referring to decor mags from 2004 anytime). Right now I have a couple of Ikea Expedit shelving units in my bedroom but I have come to the conclusion that I don’t want all that visual clutter and stimulation in a space I am supposed to use to relax in. My favourite book storage area is the dining room – I love how it can look like a library one minute and a dining space the next. Where do you guys store your books?
Book storage always catches my eye when I’m doing blog research and because I haven’t done a themed post in a while I thought I’d find some book storage/shelving photos. (I did a post on this topic a while ago here).

And my all-time favourite, a photo I’ve featured several times already since I first came across it…I love every inch of this space.
