Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians! I am still trying to recuperate from the massive feast I shared with my family last night (turkey and ALL the fixings, plus 3 types of pie), and somehow I have to get some work done around the house. My paint supplies provided by Farrow & Ball arrived last week for my living room and I am so freaking excited to get started. I went with down pipe in estate emulsion for the walls, down pipe in full gloss for all of the trim (YES! I am painting out the mahogany!) and fireplace, and plummett in estate emulsion for the ceiling. Today husband and I have to deal with the ugly nooks in on either side of the west facing window. All that to say, I have alot to do on this holiday Monday, so I leave you with this really funky little apartment in Moscow via The Village. (Sorry, short on pet entries again this week)
A Federation style house and a modern extension. An earlier renovation that just wasn’t working for the owners. Enter Multiplicity who have taken the addition, changed ceiling heights, opened walls with glazing, added interest through timber joinery and brought the uninspiring space to life without the wholesale waste of demolishing an addition that was under 10 years old.
A sunshine yellow way to start your day or a lemon? And by that I mean the tree at the end of the shower;) A retrolicious bathroom reinterpretation by multiplicity.
Dreams are made of this. The adaptive re-use of an old school hall, its new interior folding and unfolding within the original space. “… where to start when to blur when to infill what to leave out what to detail when to stop …” Westwyck Unit4 by Melbourne based multiplicity
How cool! I already love the modern open plan, the concrete and the white brick, the bright yellow and hot pink accents as well as the pool but what I really, really love are the Space Invader motifs in the brickwork.
