Think of the possibilities. Home office, studio, exercise room, chill zone, man cave, hell no woman cave! A super stylish box down the back of your yard. It’s the Backyard Room. Launched in March this year at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show where it won the sustainability award and the silver award for best garden, Backyard Room is an innovative new offering from the team at Archiblox. I want one for that spot way down the back of my garden. All to my own. Just have to keep it secret from my husband!
Or should that be studio of dreams? Close to perfect don’t you think? The castles I could create, the plans I could hatch draw, the clients I could bedazzle impress if I had such a space for my own. Mill Valley Studio by Jute.
New work from San Francisco based interior designer Antonio Martins. The Atelier is the room he has created for the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, opening Saturday. Layers of design, layers of textures and finishes, layers of meaning. A small space that spins a story through the most basic of materials, burlap, but is refined and elegant in the telling. A man’s space, an artisan’s lair, a collector’s sanctuary. A place away and yet in the present, a place beyond and always in contact with the world. A beautiful place.
Loving this office of San Diego innovation and design consultancy firm Bulldog Drummond. Their Victorian house-turned-office space they have effectively titled ‘The Manor’ features a mix of traditional British design with a modern California twist. I love Brit-inspired design… the ubiquitous brown leather chesterfield and union jack pattern. Very cool yet still looks professional.
My husband read about San Francisco based interior design firm O + A in an issue of Fast Company magazine. Their focus is workspaces, and let me tell you, I’d give anything to be able to spend my days in environments like this (instead of staring at row upon row of dreary cubicles and industrial carpeting). Lots of cool ideas here that can translate to residential spaces.
