“Drawing upon the site’s architectural period and surrounding bushland, Wahroonga House is an example of mid-century modern design, referencing the warmth and playfulness of Palm Springs balanced with a laid-back sense of sophistication.”
Add an earthy colour palette of greens and browns inspired by the surrounding bushland and a play on geometric curves the result is relaxed yet refined. Wahroonga House by Tom Mark Henry.

The perfect white backdrop accented by pops of gold. Light bouncing off mirrors. Dashes of black for contrast and texture, layers of subtle texture. A sophisticated home with a touch of the Parisian panache in Brooklyn. Fenimore Flat by Shelby Girard.

Another designer who can do no wrong and whom I have admired for years is Hubert Zandberg and this is his fabulously curated London apartment. Speckled with afternoon sun welcomed in through oversized, west-facing windows, Hubert Zandberg’s new White City apartment is testimony to his design approach: that a space can be infused with character through seemingly disparate items collected over time and place. The 100 square metre apartment is situated in Television Centre in White City. The new-built provided Hubert with the perfect blank slate against which to display some of his collected pieces, antiques and art in a new, dynamic composition. He furnished the ‘developer’s white box’ using key items from the HZ permanent collection, including vintage Modernist objet and works of art, as well as prototype furniture from the By HZI line, such as a sofa, several cabinets, sideboards, a custom bed and shelving. The end result is a bespoke, greatly personal space that underscores the designer’s belief that smart styling can transform a space with very limited architectural intervention.
It’s been a couple of years since we “oohed” and “aahed” over Tali Roth‘s 20th St apartment in NYC. (You can see it here.) The space has naturally evolved over that time, subtle changes, new rooms designed. A progression, a maturation, a blossoming. One constant though. Tali Roth is still the queen of the gallery wall.
