Clean modern lines play against almost rustic exposed brick walls while an industrial vibe is balanced by natural materials in this contemporary family home. Indoors and out meet seamlessly while private spaces are soft and restful. Functional, cohesive and considered. Lot B Bridge House by Sydney-based interior design studio Lot 1.

From terracotta tiles to rustic beams, from smooth plaster walls to rough stone Villa Bonazza by Florence-based interior designers Matos-Herzog is a timeless beauty. Classic yet contemporary, warm and inviting yet strong and rugged. As for the colour palette think salted caramels. Rich, smooth and unctuous. By the way Bonazza is “looker” in Italian.
It’s all about sophisticated contemporary living but remembering the building’s Edwardian past. Think textures and layers, white walls meeting sissal floors, zellige tiles, stone and accents of royal blue. Clifton Gardens by Studio Gorman.
I started the week with a Hamptons beach shack getaway by Marie-Christine Design. I’m going to finish it with another of her designs. What’s as iconic as a Hamptons vacation home? why a Soho loft of course! Lots of light flooding in through tall windows, white painted exposed brick and that dining room. Swoon!
Part gallery, part apartment, all style. The Milan loft home of Tommaso Spinzi of Spinzi Design a Milan and Melbourne based interior design firm is inspirational and aspirational. I think I’d take one of everything from contemporary to design classics from the 70s and 80s. It’s my kryptonite.
