I was super excited to stumble upon the website of Austin, TX architects Andersson-Wise. Why you may ask? One of their projects just may be my future home (the home before the jump….well, a variation of it anyway, and minus the water view dammit). Their homes are rustic and modern and works of art. Each one a dream. Well, my dream anyway. And how cool is that house lined with wood stacks?
Pattersons is an architecture firm from New Zealand that is responsible for the creation of some really spectacular homes. Not too fussy or over the top, they specialize in modern designs but keep it simple and elegant. The sheep seem to approve. 🙂
I have another Australian architect for you today. This time it’s Chris Dimond, and holy smokes this retro home he has designed is a mid-century fan’s dream come true. I have always wanted to live in a totally retro home. I would take this one in a heartbeat. (But I’d love the pool of the other home!)
I LOVE this little 775 sq ft apartment located in Malmesbury, UK (it’s a unique hilltop market town established in 880AD!!!). This property dates to 1850, is solid stone and has been totally renovated. I’m forever a fan of old, rustic homes brought into the 21st century – love the stone walls and the beamed ceilings. It has such a cosy feel to it. The kitchen design is pretty creative – I take it it’s for folks who mostly eat out (although it even has a dishwasher!). How cool that it’s accessed from the road via a courtyard so it’s totally private. More details here and the agent’s page here.
“If less is more then this is a lot.” Welcome to Casa Bramasole, a little piece of Scandinavian living mixed with rustic Italian in Umbria. A true fairytale – a beautiful historic building rising from the ruins. You’ll find me on this Monday morning taking coffee on the terrace sleepily drinking in the spectacular view of the Lago Trasinemo below. Might take a dip later. What a place to take an imaginary break on the first work day of the week!
