J+R Katz

Posted on Mon, 26 Aug 2013 by KiM

Jonathan and Renee Katz are the duo behind Vancouver firm J+R Katz Architecture & Design. They strive to create spaces that are elegant, vibrant and livable. Their work is so top notch that I imagine many of the homeowners never want to sell. I sure as hell wouldn’t if any of these homes were mine.

Happy Friday!

Living small – Alan Chu

Posted on Sun, 11 Aug 2013 by KiM

I found this compact São Paulo apartment designed by Brazilian architect Alan Chu and had to share. It’s got micro square footage but Alan made such great use of limited space. A single wall was converted into storage for both the kitchen and living room, which kept the majority of those spaces free for basic furnishings. I think he and the owner like subway tiles. 🙂 The spiral staircase is compact and a gorgeous architectural feature. Overall, a really cool space. (Via Casa Vogue Brasil)

Bursting with colour and life and layers of texture. As hot as Brazilian design is these days Fernanda Marques produces work that is as cool as can be. A sophisticated, contemporary style with energy to burn.

Stalking a loft 1

Posted on Wed, 17 Jul 2013 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking two industrial style lofts today. The first, in a former produce store in Richmond, Melbourne is mind blowing. The open plan design over several levels, the concrete and timber, the steel and the brick are all classic industrial loft riffs. The design stars for me are the two fireplaces. Oh my! I’d be lighting fires in summer and cranking up the air conditioning to cope! OK so it  needs some personalising. It’s like a cross between a bachelor pad and a half empty furniture consignment store. But the bones! Oh the bones! For when I win the lottery. Link here while it lasts.
