Yes I know I posted an office on Saturday. Kim even posted an office on Sunday but I knew you would forgive a hat trick of workplaces once you set eyes on this library nirvana. This is Hordern House, a purveyor of rare books, manuscripts and paintings in Sydney’s Surry Hills. Richly layered, beautifully curated, this gem of a space was designed by Studio Kate and is quite possibly the most beautiful retail/office space I have ever set eyes upon. Once I had entered I would never want to leave.
Black and white, a surprise of old gold timber linings, enough retro classics to be cool not ostentatious, enveloping textures and the promise of a good surf break. Not your usual Hamptons holiday getaway and I for one am glad! Montauk Beach House by Space Exploration.
Scnadinavian modern with a touch of farmhouse style in this bright and charming townhouse in Austin, Texas. This modern farmhouse mixes Scandinavian driven design with midcentury modern and bohemian accents. The color palette was inspired by two abstract paintings in the living room. Since the downstairs is open concept, we decided on a timeless white palette, while also adding pops of color in the 10′ x 10′ bookcase and wallpaper on the first floor. Each room is intended to communicate to other parts of the house so we thread through classic and clean finishes and materials like marble, brass, shaker panels, and matte hickory pecan flooring. The tongue and groove feature wall also hides a bathroom and storage closets, while also adding a touch of a “farmhouse” feel throughout the home and on the porch.

Sharing some Scandinavian modern in greys and pastels to ease you into the weekend with this beauty designed by Laura Melling. Wonderfully styled and I absolutely adore that bench/storage wall. That one needs to go in the inspiration folder. So easy to achieve with a quick trip to Ikea 🙂
An old plaster moulding shop on the ground floor of an early 20th century building in Barcelona was dark and derelict until architectural firm Valentí Albareda created a magical light filled home with central courtyard and a distinct modern flavour inside its rustic exposed brick walls. Love the almost sculptural feel to elements such as the staircase and shelving.
