When I spotted this home on Shoot Factory I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Industrial chic style with beautiful architectural details with white painted exposed brick and wood panelling and moldings in every nook and cranny. Paint some of it black and I am having heart palpitations. Add a marble countertop and I can hardly breathe. (Blakes London seems to have had something to do with this).
If urban contemporary is more your church conversion style than yesterday’s country church with a cottage feel, then this Chicago redesign might just be your thing. Think modern, clean lines juxtaposed with stain glass and soaring ceilings. Chicago church conversion into family home by Linc Thelen Design and Scrafano Architects.

The serenely beautiful, plant filled house shared by Kim on Sunday (here… swoon) belongs to stylist and art director Liza Giles and her architect husband. It’s easy to see that she worked for Designers Guild for many years. That lovely green, the freshness, the botanicals. I couldn’t help myself. I had to share a little more of her work with Tricia Guild. Simply lovely.
Like a new industrial skeleton within an old brick skin, this 250m2 warehouse conversion in inner-city Melbourne is a mixture of intimate spaces and open voids, family space and public face. I love the light that streams into the heart of the old building, the walls of steel and glass windows and the outside that is actually in. Fitzroy Loft by Architects EAT.
In my dreams I live in a farmhouse surrounded by vineyards. It’s a simple but oh so stylish pile. Rustic yet sophisticated, traditional yet modern, surrounded by friends and family, celebrating the beauty in life. My dreams might just look a little like Healdsburg Ranch by San Francisco-based design firm Jute.
