Now you see it now you don’t

Clever custom joinery in this McMahon’s Point, Sydney renovation and extension by architects Stanic Harding. A California Bungalow style home was given a modern take while retaining period features like the bay windows. The new addition respects the street appeal while not hiding its existence or pretending to be what it is not. A change of level in the small backyard provides an opportunity for decking and seating that will soften over time.

I love everything about this space. Black and white main colour scheme, graphic art, little bits of orange, large coffee table for vignetting….

This view isn’t so great because those pouffy stools are kind of hideous but the rest rocks.

Reader request – sectional sofas

Posted on Fri, 27 May 2011 by KiM

Today’s reader request comes from Agata: I am 30 year’s old polish girl leaving in Norway. Together with my husband, we’re thinking of building a house. We don’t have a land and a house yet, but for the moment I am concentrating on floors and sofas. Don’t ask me why – just because :> And here is the best lime green color I have found so far for my best ever sofa :> The above sofa is not the size and shape I desire. I would like to have a huuuuuge lime green (not leather) sofa. And that lead me to idea of asking You girls of writing  a nice post about huge/corner not-too-much-sophisticated but practical sofas. I am REALLY hoping to be able to fit a sectional sofa in my new living room (when it’s built) so I was stoked to search these out in my huge stash of photos. Since Agatha mentioned lime, huge and corner I tried to find photos with sofas in that combination (but only found a few in lime). The first photo caught my eye but it turned out to not be a sectional….but I adore the space and colours in particular so I had to include it.
