I’m stalking in Sydney’s inner suburb of Surry Hills, walking through its historic streets indulging my love of 19th century terrace houses. Behind this grey facade is a house with a flipped floor plan, living on the top, bedrooms on the bottom. It’s not the floor plan change that drew me in. It’s the bright, white interiors punctuated with tribal carpets and pillows, the artwork and a lovely, simple dining room. Link here while it lasts.
A bit of texture, a bit of colour, a bit of fur, a bit of wood, and lots of white. A smattering of designs from the portfolio of San Francisco designer Nicole Newkirk.
Black and white, a surprise of old gold timber linings, enough retro classics to be cool not ostentatious, enveloping textures and the promise of a good surf break. Not your usual Hamptons holiday getaway and I for one am glad! Montauk Beach House by Space Exploration.
It’s my mantra. You’ve heard it often enough. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere amazing like the showroom/office of shirt company Frank & Eileen by Melody Weir.
I wonder if Khoury Vogt Architects built sandcastles when they were young and dreamed of bigger things?
