Is it a pop-up shop in a home or a home where you can stay and take home the sofa if you happen to love it? Why it’s both! Owner Tina Seidenfaden Busck reimagines The Apartment each year, presenting a carefully curated and continually changing collection of art and design objects from the 20th century as well as pieces by renowned contemporary designers. This year you can even book a stay. It’s my dream of living in a shop come to life. I love the evolution of The Apartment over the years and particularly this summer’s celebration of colour, pattern and different cultures.
I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond and what did I find? Why a contemporary four storey townhouse, slick and white with stylish furnishings and a fabulous art collection. Aging KISS portrais anyone? Link here while it lasts.
There are a couple of my dream scenarios intersecting in this Chelsea loft by Tali Roth Interior Design. Yes it’s a loft. It’s in New York. Light is flooding in and it’s predominantly white. Sigh. I don’t live in a loft or in New York. I do have the light but with a dog and a husband who doesn’t realise he’s made a mess at times (he’s blind) white sofas are definitely out of the question. Lucky I’m happy with what I’ve got but a girl can dream of an oh so lovely, far away, light, bright loft.
A timeless palette of black and white complimented by a neutral materials scheme of stone, wood and tile. Bright and serene, moody yet calm the interiors of this Bridgehampton family home by Timothy Godbold is so classic, so sophisticated and yet so casual and inclusive. A home of two halves? No it’s a resolution of the chic and the relaxed.
I’m still real estate scrolling and I’m still near the water but this time I’m in Jan Juc down on Victoria’s Surf Coast. OK this stylish bungalow isn’t so much a surf shack as it is a wonderful family home but it’s just down the road from the famous Bells Beach and that warrants a surf board or two on hand in the garage. Love the colourful Scandi vibe, the herringbone oak floors, the linen curtains, the wonderful pattern overload in the bedrooms. Fun, fresh and definitely all about the family.
