Open plan contemporary living in an Australian bush setting. Pushing out from the ridge the glass and metal box is anchored by a big, bright dose of sunny yellow, a kitchen that shines like a beacon through the eucalyptus. It’s the ultimate bush shed by Sydney based, international architectural studio Lippmann Partnership. If a bush retreat is not your idea of architectural nirvana then perhaps the beach shack after the jump is more your modern retreat ideal.
As I promised on Friday, here is another look at beautifully designed spaces created by the talented Rebecca Du Pont De Bie and Caroline Cobbold of London’s Cobbold Du Pont Interiors. This time it’s a little less rustic and a little more Parisian glam, in a private residence in London that they completed last year. Gorgeous!!
Reader Laurel Walter lives in southern Oregon and this is her fabulous home. These shots were taken by Matthew Millman (my earlier post on Matthew here) for a magazine feature. Laurel says her home is a trifecta project involving herself and Jennifer Bright, her partner in their interiors styling business, Twist, and Dewayne Lumpkin, owner of Home Economics. Unfortunately the magazine folded and Lauren’s home remained unpublished but I am so jealous because Laurel has these amazing photos! I spy so much that I love. I’m ticking off the industrial items and found objects that I want for my place but most of all I’d kill for a wonderful outdoor room like Laurel’s.
A few weeks ago Zdenka sent pictures of her adorable pups for Pets on Furniture. I loved what I saw of her Croatian home in the background. Of course I didn’t go lurking straight away. No I only decided to snoop further today. I’m glad I did! Zdenka’s home is amazing. Simple, stylish, fresh and… you can stay there. It’s the House of Gold and perches in a steep winding lane in the medieval village of Motovun. I’m thinking of getting together a house party. Want to come? (If only it wasn’t a dream… I’d love to visit Croatia.) If you want to see what Zdenka started with and her renovation journey visit her blog. It’s not for the faint hearted. OMG what a transformation!
