Within the refurbished château/farmhouse of designer Pierre Yovanovitch in Fabrègues, Provence is the marriage of rustic and sophistication. Plasterwork, stone and wood form the backdrop to modern and vintage furnishings and artwork. Each room more beautiful than the next.
It’s all about balance. A balance between crisp and modern and rustic and weathered. Rough versus smooth. A hint of scandi with a dose of Aussie. Light versus dark. Formally structured and sensuous and tactile. A fine balancing act indeed. Hunters Hill House by Handelsmann + Khaw.

“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”

A bit of period magic for your Sunday viewing pleasure. This early 1700’s townhouse in Spitalfields, London is everything you could dream of in a home from that era. Left virtually untouched, as it should be, it is a step back in time with old floorboards, stone, brick, shutters, windows, beadboard, moldings and all the good things. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
A Victorian era terrace house in Sydney dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century? I don’t think so. No drama, no tears, no worries. Just a clever renovation of a tired old home into a sophisticated, monochromatic, modern home that maximises space and style. Think luxe and minimal, light and bright.
