Dark, moody, masculine and down by the harbour. Not quite what you expect for boathouse living. Love the texture, the old wood, the play of white light against murky walls and the pops of yellow. Yes, in this case, I think pop is just the right word. A wonderful man cave by Sydney interior designer Karen Akers. Imagine sitting snug inside on a wild and windy rainy day.
Contemporary and custom combined with vintage and one off. Beautifully layered modern rooms with personality and wonderful detail. Calm and elegant, sophisticated and restrained but warm and inviting. Quite a feat to get just right and interior designer Charles Mellersh has the balance just right.
Combine a wall of bright yellow framed windows, an expansive view of a leafy green canopy and abundant light and this apartment renovation by São Paulo based AR ARQUITETOS would brighten anyone’s day. A clever “wall of cubes” allows the light to penetrate further into the kitchen while providing much needed storage without heavy walls closing in the otherwise open plan public spaces. Living here would be sunshine yellow everyday!
Open, light filled, clean lined and family friendly. Warm wooden floors with accents of yolk yellow, red and Aegean blue that flash across the streamlined white canvas. A modern Australian beach house by interior design leaders Nexus Designs.
Hands up who hasn’t seen Sisley cosmetics Christine d’Ornano’s London home. Hands up who hasn’t drooled over the blue velvet doors and yellow chairs of “that” dining room/library. Hands up those who missed the m,any interiors magazine features including Elle Decor. The paintings, the OTT 70s floral fabric bedroom walls, the overstuffed sofas and modernist chairs. I love that house. So I was overjoyed to see Joanna Henderson‘s interpretation of the rooms. I think this talented British photographer’s images truly capture the everyday beauty, the family style, the livability of this fabulous home. Relaxed and casual but very, very special.
