Extra-long weekend means an extra-long edition of Spaces for you. I’m starting off with a shameless attention-baiting doozy of a bathroom. (Yes, this really does exist in someone’s home – see more here.)
OK, that’s the last pink bathroom (this week), promise.
I love this colour with the concrete floors, don’t you? And always appreciate ‘invisible’ storage.
And now I’m thinking of a next-weekend project to rejuve our chest of drawers. This Tahitian green is so fresh, and so right now. I promise I won’t say ‘pop of colour‘, but I’m thinking it.
I hope you look through these spaces with me each week, and find a couple of ideas you’d like to steal. Like pilfering pretty neighbourhood foliage and putting it in an XL vase on the floor of your bedroom,
or using a rug in the corner of a space to create a little ‘zone’ (in this case, the bedroom, to create a wardrobe/dressing area).
A couple of scenes from the HQ of Australian homeware brand Cultiver. I love their beautiful soft meeting area, with the massive changeable moodboard. Cultiver Founder Nicolle’s office is both professional and pretty – the navy cotton jumpsuit of offices. And, of course, being a linen brand, they have an in-office bed for photoshoots (and productivity naps?).
Right, these are the show towels, ok family? We don’t use them. They’re just for visitors to see.
(Love the black honeycomb tiling, and the choice of art print with the choice of textile.)
The simplest, can’t-get-it-wrong palette – lots of white with wood and wicker. These small rectangular white tiles are a personal fave – they add texture and substance, without shouting.
I said no more pink bathrooms. No promises were made about pink bedrooms. This dreamy master belongs to a young architect and her director-producer husband, and is part of the renovation of their former-crumbling Brooklyn brownstone. Here’s the bathroom:
Want all-matching turmeric towels at your place? I do!
You can find these at New Zealand’s Mavis & Osborn.
More deep green walls – I love this colour for a bedroom (whether a whole wall or just some accents – a repainted chest of drawers, or coloured bed linen, say). It feels invigorating yet restful… and being darker, it has a romantic edge to it. Love a vertical shiplap, too – especially as an architectural accent.
Gratuitous tapware porn. The sinks are amazing, but it’s those white faucets that have me like a cartoon cat with love-heart eyes
Dream weaver – woven textures are so strong right now, and I love how soften and warm up a white base. The marble and chrome would have looked quite cold otherwise.
