A holiday home in the Mexican city of San Miguel De Allende by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados) looks inward on a series of patios. A study of voids and 3D spaces the house is not so much introspective as it is oasis and retreat. A fascinating study of light and shade, solid and void, public and private.
A guest room or a peaceful sanctuary? Perhaps both. I know if this room was mine I certainly wouldn’t leave it just for my guests. You would find me curled up on the bed with a book or engaged in a little gossip over tea with friends. An elegant retreat indeed. Hamptons Showhouse Guest Room by Michael Del Piero.
Dream of a contemporary home, sleek lined and modern, with all the luxury finishes but family friendly? Dream of open plan with walls of glass opening to manicured garden with pool? Does a monochromatic black and white palette punctuated with hits of colour from standout art works ring your design bell? Well perhaps this architect designed home for sale in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Brighton is just right for you. Now if we could just convince the vendor to leave their art collection behind 😉 Link here while it lasts.
It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it should be somewhere stylish. (Is working in a fabulous dress shop really work though?) Coco and Lola, Double Bay by LAHAUS.
I got heart palpitations when I spotted this house on Nuevo Estilo and had to share with you because there is nothing I love more than ornate architectural moldings. And uniquely laid hardwood floors. Both of these elements in this apartment in Madrid designed by architecture and design studio BAO are absolutely exquisite. What was formerly a law office that was painted yellow with synthetic flooring is now a dreamy home.
