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.
Timeless restraint and refinement are at the heart of Templeton Architecture‘s work. Little Parndon was built 1862 but many renovations through the years and a heritage listing necessitated a careful, considered hand to include the needs of modern day living while protecting the buildings rich history. The result is elegant and sophisticated, light filled and simply beautiful.

“Located in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, this interior and landscape project to a 1930s weatherboard and rock house offers a careful manipulation of dark and light to suit the particular needs of a writer with a predilection for darkness and exploit the site’s broad established garden outlook.”
Melbourne-based architecture and interior design practice Freadman White have taken a confused warren of rooms and created a home that moves seamlessly from cave like living room to light and bright open plan kitchen dining. Bedrooms with their ensuite bathrooms continue to play with the idea of light versus dark. The result is a modern remake of a dated farmhouse.
It’s Saturday and in between coffee dates with friends, grocery shopping and a few hours pottering in the garden I’ve been real estate stalking as I tend to do. I love to see what is waiting behind a firmly closed door or a conservative facade. Like this Federation era townhouse in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton North just a stone’s throw from the city centre. All Edwardian propriety on the outside. All light, bright, modern family fun on the inside. Fuschia pink kitchen anyone? Link here while it lasts.
