“The full refurbishment of an Arts and Crafts family home in North London, with a mid century vibe and an abundance of colour and texture. Lime paint, terrazzo flooring and cane were used extensively to breathe new life into this period property.”
I love modern living in a historic house and when it’s as sympathetically creative and colourful as this renovation by Studio Duggan then I love it even more!
Colour, pattern, texture and personality. It’s a sensory overload in the best possible way. Think rooms maxed out with wallpaper next to calming, neutral breakout spaces. It’s luxe and loud, welcoming and at times cocooning. It’s the reworking of a home in London’s Chelsea by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio.
“Pinky’s is a reimagined boathouse by Akin Atelier & 360 degrees Landscape Architecture. Located on Gibson’s Beach, Vaucluse, Pinky’s Boathouse was designed as an interior living solution for a family who spend much of their time on the harbour. Using the existing foundations, the interior design intention for the boathouse was to create a space that could adapt to the changing conditions of the harbour.”
It’s a dream surely, a fantasy of mine. A wonderful Sydney harbourside home and to top it off a boathouse or should that be just a little bit more than a boathouse. To me Pinky’s is perfection. Might just move a bed in as well.

“This old-world-meets-five-star-hotel bathroom renovation is perfect amounts soothing and stunning. Inspired by a stay in a floor to ceiling plaster covered Grecian villa, we took our client’s request for a blush bathroom and tweaked it to read more like a neutral terracotta as to not overwhelm the senses. We chose a floor pattern with a nod to old world Europe but with a modern geometric twist. With all the attention on the floors and walls, we kept it very simple for the vanity and added just a little pop of color to the vanity.”
Beautiful, beautiful blush in a bathroom engaging all the senses. A sanctuary from the day’s bluster and bother. Spa bath by Journey and Jacobs.
