“The Studio May aesthetic is anchored in a refinement of palette and texture to create a sophisticated, yet warm and inviting environment that is time resilient.”
The brief for this inner Melbourne house was to increase space and volume within a small footprint and with a limited budget. The solution was to open up the back of the Victorian era cottage, creating a clean lined contemporary open plan space, minimalist with an emphasis on quality. Love the light that floods in as well as the vaulted ceiling and exposed beams.
Dear Mr Bank Manager,
That Sydney terrace house I asked you to let me buy in the last post? I might have changed my mind. As much as I love Victorian architecture I’m a sucker for the 80s and this iconic Ken Woolley designed suburban tower also in Paddington has my name written all over it. I even have the furniture to fit. Please lend me the money. Pretty please?

Some soothing eye candy for your Sunday viewing pleasure with this to-die-for newly build Georgian style farmhouse in East Sussex, England available as a location home via Shoot Factory. This home boasts a leisure complex including indoor pool, gym, wine cellar and yoga room, a cinema room and library (with secret door!) with grand piano. Landscaped gardens with tennis court and vineyard. Seven bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms. Just stunning from the inside out.
I have another villa to share with you with some serious Mediterranean vibes. Blues, greys and white are the colour scheme in this home in Capri by Swiss designer Jorge Cañete. This one has an other-worldly, magical aura that I have come to expect from Jorge’s projects (see here and here for more). Breathtaking.

It’s an interesting mix, moody master bedroom and a tactile, almost organic bathroom in the lightest shade of grey. Inspired by luxurious Greek villas think sinuous shapes offset by angular joinery, light bouncing off walls, floating drapes, a calm oasis in a hot, hot city.
