“Architecture meets the art of living in this extraordinary, contemporary three-bedroom home comprised of a plinth and pavilion structure nestled into the northern California nature. An array of sliding glass panels retracts completely into the home’s core, dematerializing the structure into a native-oak-strewn ridge.
Bridging architectural innovation with day-to-day functionality and family living, the interiors are accented with warm finishes, elemental materials and personal accessories. Anchoring the highly edited spaces, custom furnishings are crafted with exacting artisanship. Interiors are both timeless and welcoming.”
I was going to string along some totally inadequate descriptions which included words like fabulous and amazing but I don’t have to. The designer’s own description and the photos tell it all. The only thing I would like to add is WOW! Larkspur Hilltop by Nicole Hollis.
Amidst a forest in Brussels lies a home built of brick and glass. Modern in design, simple in architecture and decor. The surrounding landscape is the jewel of this home. Created by Studio Daskal Laperre.
Sometimes it takes just one room, a single perfect space that captures your heart and soul completely. This lovely heritage home in Sydney’s prestigious Darling Point is beautiful. The windows are stunning, the kitchen is amazing but it is the garden room, or at least what I call the garden room, that will haunt my design dreams for months to come. Lead-light and parlour palms, rattan seats and french oak tables. Perfection. This is one of the times I wish I was actually touring the house not just real estate stalking. Link for the listing here while it lasts.
A week of grey skies and constant rain has left me craving light-filled spaces and I can’t think of a better place to be than the amazing loft home of Sally Breer, founder and lead designer of L.A.-based ETC.etera. Soaring windows, industrial posts and beams, killer furniture including a Desede Terrazza sofa. I’m in heaven. Now if the design gods would only scoop my up from my sodden surrounds and transport me to this L.A. loft all would be well with my world.
