An extension at the back of this Bellevue Hill Federation House and the renovation of the home’s bathrooms saw interior design duo Handelsmann + Khaw explore Mediterranean themes, texture or should I say patina and a casual elegance. Think tumbled marble tiles, terrazzo and tadelakt. And then there is the drama of that bathroom overlooking the garden. Beautiful!

Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.
Now this is weekend living! This breathtaking glass home was once a bare-bones fish camp on the Llano River in the Texas Hill Country (a 48 acre piece of waterfront land) and eventually this home was built. A striking melange of limestone blocks, charred cedar planks, walls of glass, it’s modern and rustic, casual and tranquil. Via Garden & Gun. Architect: Michael Hsu Photos: Wynn Myers
Today’s second lake house is not only off the grid it’s off the scale for stylish, unplugged living. This weekend getaway is all about natural materials and soft muted tones. If it was mine I’d be living here more than just on weekends. New Buffalo house by Chicago-based Elizabeth Krueger Design.
Floor to ceiling carrara marble, a deep soaker tub next to a gas fire place, dark rich walnut against the bling of gold. It’s luxurious with a hint of retro and a definite masculine feel. Timeless and sophisticated. Bathroom dreams from Colorado based Studio Thomas.
