I am in love with this home – particularly the meticulously appointed kitchen (complete with 2 sinks!!). Here are some details: the alteration of and addition to an existing Victorian cottage in Darling Point, Sydney. An exploration of finding the contemporary and grand within what is historic and compact, we have deliberately detailed the space in such a way that the handmade appears both youthful and reverential. As a result, this elegant four bedroom home appears as a delicate, slightly feminine study in the role of the contemporary classic. A beauty by Alexander & Co. (Photos: Tom Ferguson)
San Francisco based interior designer Rachel Blindauer may have called this project a neutral retreat but what I see is an almost painterly approach to breathing new life into a mid century home. Daubs of colour flash through washes of greige, catching the eye, drawing you into a space. Calm yet colourful with a relaxed sophistication.
It’s all about colour, texture and shape in this Darlinghurst, Sydney residence by Triibe. Oh and chairs. Warm hues of browns and cognacs, terracotta and sand. Sensuous curves and boxy consoles. Polished concrete against chunky rugs, layered with leathers and velvet. A tactile feast.

Urbanology Designs took a modern, rustic approach to this home in Dallas, Texas and it creates such a casual, warm, and earthy feel. There are so many wonderful textures you almost don’t notice how neutral the colour scheme is.
