My other dream home

Posted on Thu, 27 Oct 2011 by KiM

I’ve got another property for you from Domus Nova. And this one is a dream! What is not to love about this place? The only thing I can really comment on negatively are those deflated looking sofas, which looks too much like a separated sectional (pet peeve!!). This place rocks. I love the simple kitchen, the concrete floors, the funky lighting, the artwork (I spot THE perfect vintage portrait), the yard, and OMG THAT HALLWAY ‘O BOOKS!!!

Love the low bookshelves framing the dining table.

Love this neutral, pretty bedroom.

Love this staircase/desk/shelving.

Reader request – bookshelf vignettes

Posted on Fri, 23 Sep 2011 by KiM

Today’s reader request is from Eva in Toronto: I was wondering if you could perhaps provide some inspiration on how to decorate and style some build-in units in a main living space? I would love to see how others around the world have filled these spaces with treasures/books/objects d’art so that I can do the same in my home. Simple enough request, but sometimes quite a daunting task to get vignettes looking just right. I constantly change items on display in my house as I am never happy with them and get bored quick. Observing how others display objects can help us rethink how our own pieces are used. For example, I have a bunch of spray painted black vases (leftover from my wedding) on some shelving, and I took a wide/short vase and stuck 2 skinny/tall vases in it. I have a stack of about 8 books on the same shelving, standing upright with the tallest at the back and shortest at the front that way you get a peek at the cover of each book (seen here). Hopefully the following group of photos help to inspire Eva’s built-in displays.


all about you

Puzzle box apartment

Posted on Thu, 18 Aug 2011 by midcenturyjo

38sqm. Yes 38sqm. This redesign of a one bedroom apartment in Potts Point is by Sydney architect Anthony Gill. This clever puzzle box of a space is home to a couple and their young child. A custom joinery spine runs the length of the apartment providing much needed storage while delineating individual spaces including a clever pull out bed which slips away under the raised child’s bedroom floor when not in use. Clever, funky and fab. Tiny spaces rule! Photography by Peter Bennetts.
