A playful and pragmatic house

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“An extension to a single fronted Victorian Terrace located within Melbourne’s inner-north. Storybook House is a study of inner city living, this project optimises the existing footprint to create a functional small family home with a series of multi-use spaces. The building is curated to frame views into a series of open garden spaces – including internal courtyards, a roof garden and borrowing the landscape from the adjacent park and outlook to Melbourne’s skyline.”

Add in sustainable design principles, clever storage solutions and reference to the local community in materials and shape the result is collaborative, innovative, and pragmatic yet playful design. Storybook House by Folk Architects.

A pied-à-terre in a Tudor home

Posted on Mon, 25 May 2020 by KiM

Simplicity with neutrals and textures, creating serenity. Corinne Mathern was hired to convert the 1000 square foot second floor of a 1925 Tudor residence to a well appointed one bedroom apartment.  The space was tragically chopped up into five offices that masked the building’s angled ceilings and made them burdensome instead of beautiful. Corinne’s client wanted a light filled apartment with elements that nodded to traditional Tudor elements but with modern hues. The angles of the ceiling and the coved windows drove the design for this space. The lines created a soft, sculptural feel that we placed focus on by minimizing the door and window trims throughout the home. “The instant I saw the property, I knew the space had the potential to be a beautiful, light filled apartment with a serene, open feel.”

I am mesmerized by the Swedish home of Fredrika Magnusson Ciotti of Art N Deco. It is life meets art. When you run a vintage furnishings shop how could you not bring work home with you? A beautiful space filled with beautiful things. Via Elle Decoration Sweden, photos by Mikael Lundblad.

This impeccably curated loft in Willamsburg, Brooklyn, belongs to interior designer Leyden Lewis. The 800 sq ft space is filled with books and art, creating lots of drama and gives the impression that it’s like a mini art gallery/museum/library. I adore this.
