I have all things “kitchen” on my mind. It may be because I am almost finished my own kitchen renovation ( I promise to share photos as soon as it is done) or it may just be that I keep coming across killer kitchens as I surf the net … like these sustainable bamboo beauties by Norwegian Ask og Eng. Choose from custom built or door fronts for IKEA carcasses. Perfect!
I’m still real estate hunting in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. The simple Edwardian facade allows glimpses of a two storey modern extension by Preston Lane Architects. Highlights include streamlined open plan living and a seamless flow from inside to out with great al fresco living in a low maintenance garden. Link here while it lasts.
This contemporary addition and renovation adds a pared back elegance to a Victorian era home whose original style is usually associated with an overindulgence in applied details. The result is clean lined, minimal luxury. Thoroughly modern living with respect for the past. Batavia South Yarra by Robson Rak.

Russian Architect and designer Maria Marinina has created an oasis with this home, using an earthy, neutral colour palette and tons of textures. So serene and soothing, pared down and refined. No need for alot of stuff when you have so many textures to appreciate.
Crisp, white and contemporary with light flowing in through high walls of glass. A seamless connection between inside and out. Warmth from just enough texture and wood. What more could you want in a modern home? You certainly don’t need more words from me. Just drink in the inspiration from the pictures.
