This contemporary extension to a Federation home in Sydney’s Bondi is light, bright and family friendly. The open plan, luxe but subtle material palette and the layering of texture result in welcoming modern living that brings this beautiful old home into a new century.

Modern glam in a renovated New York home

Posted on Tue, 23 Nov 2021 by KiM

This stately, elegant home in Old Westbury, New York, was designed by Michelle Gerson who played up the elegance of the architecture and went balls to the wall with it. It is modern, sophisticated and imbued with a glamorous WOW factor room by room. (Photos: Douglas Friedman & Howard W. Christian)

I really love the bright, neutral, modern vibes happening in this Texas home designed by Amanda Brooke. The entertainment feature wall is a brilliant design choice, with built-in lighting and storage, and the brass accents in the kitchen with matching marble is gorgeous. (Photos: Jack Thompson)

A small, minimal and neutral apartment

It’s dwellings like this that make me want to bring out my inner minimalism. Neutral, with black accents, and just the basics is all you need in such a small space. This 58 sq m condo in Sweden is for sale via Historika Hem.

Earthy and modern in a California home

Posted on Thu, 28 Oct 2021 by KiM

This home is earthy, modern, somewhat minimalist and a touch bohemian and I adore it. Seen from the street, the crisp form of this home offers some compelling contrasts. The elevation is grounded by a plaster privacy wall, while the second floor floats beyond it. Slim cedar louvers break the otherwise solid, symmetrical façade, allowing a screened view through the upper level. Inside, the louvers cast linear shadows throughout the rooms and the glass-enclosed corridors. The L-shape footprint defines the outdoor spaces and a large atrium frames a beautiful ginkgo tree. Natural light pours through all spaces. The interior design was closely coordinated with the building design. Richly textured fabrics and floorcoverings counter the palette of hard plaster, metal, and glass. Custom furnishings maximize the usability of the spaces while their curving, organic forms complement the architecture. Designed by Woods + Dangaran. Photos: Joe Fletcher.
