Laurence Simoncini has moved towards the light. Black still features in her next home, an apartment created from a warren of office space, but more as an accent along with pops of gold. The emphasis is on textures playing off the white walls. Industrial meets vintage meets high Parisian style. Which do you like the dark or the light? Hard choice isn’t it? I think I might just have to take both.

I’m stalking black and white with colourful art in South Melbourne. The renovation and extension to the period Victorian terrace house by Finnis architects retains the original heritage detailing while creating an understated tranquillity through a modern, minimalist touch. Link here while it lasts.
What Alexander and Co said about this Sydney project:
“Queens Park House is the transformation of an existing 1900’s semi-detached cottage in Sydney. The project created a new 4-bedroom home whilst the material palette and architecture explored the use of steel detailing and various natural hues and textures. The internal styling, lighting and furniture responded to our client’s very particular ambitions.”
What I have to say about said property:
So slick. So cool. Mid Century Modern with rustic, monochrome magic with metalic accents. It’s hip, it’s happening. It’s a private apartment in Milan by Quincoces-Dragò & Partners.
Now that summer is over and I am in a fall depression, I think it is the perfect time to start thinking about warmer climates. Like that of Ibiza. This home of interior designer Virginia Nieto is bringing home the Mediterranean vibe with bright white walls, concrete floors, straw mats and light fixtures and a to-die-for outdoor space. Wow do I ever love this house!!!
