Spaces


Incredible bathroom at a coastline-meets-country property in Victoria, Australia. If moody and modernist on windswept oceanfront is your thing (aaaah and why would it not be), take a look at the rest of the home here. Designed by B.E Architecture.

This bathroom (LOVE this bathroom – wish I could see more angles of it!) and the beautiful sunken kitchen above belong to a Japanese-inspired home/grown-up-treehouse in Melbourne, designed by Archier. Definitely go and watch the walk-through video tour of this home, here.

Grey-on-grey = quiet elegance

Been a minute since we looked at a teeny Scandinavian apartment. I love that they always, always manage to find space for a dining area. This looks as good a place as any for a morning pour-over.

I’m not even mad that the bedroom is impractically tiny – it just feels like a cosy nest.

If you’re after a Mediterranean feel, a fully-tiled bathroom counter is going to bring that for you. I love that they’ve used imperfect, matte tiles and added rough plastered walls, but chosen light colours – this is rustic, relaxed, and refined all at once.

I’m really responding to powder blue lately – I reckon we’ll be seeing a lot more of it this year.
Great little before and after of this modest kitchen, here

*whispering in your ear: uneven matte-white subways… a modern freestanding bath… sitting under timber sash windows…

I love everything about this kitchen; most especially the extra-thick concrete benchtop. I just want to teleport here for a day of cooking while listening to podcasts, with a background soundtrack of rain outside. This sweet cottage kitchen belongs to photographer Marnie Hawson, and her Macedon Ranges farmhouse style home. Tour the rest of this nostalgic abode over on the Bed Threads journal.

OK, I officially like chrome tapware again – in this specific material palette (white, timber, ceramic)
Styling by Bonemade – follow them on Instagram for organic-meets-sophisticated interiors.

Special doesn’t need to be expensive. (Love the raw-edge linen shower curtain)

Love this dining-bench-corner-avec-storage. These are IKEA Nordli drawers, so this is a super affordable idea to steal. Here’s another view of the same space:

I’m always checking in on The Stables to see if they have new work up, and I hit pay-dirt for us today! These are a couple of Duplexes in Cronulla Beach; all fresh whites and clean lines. You might like (you will like) to see the other images of these two homes – head here and here.

Love this for us. Gallery wall by The Poster Club. (Especially like the simple black ‘pebble’ on the right there; you can shop that print here)

(eeep – those floor tiles!)

Sarah Sherman Samuel finally took a break from designing amazing homes for other people to design an amazing home for herself.  Go see the rest of it over on Domino, here.

Nice little idea for a small but stylish kitchen – especially love the rattan suspended cabinet, and the wall light, which together take this wee space from ordinary to somethin’ special. Created by Interior Stylist Minna Jones for Blau Kitchens.

Another space by Minna Jones for Blau. How delicious is that terrazzo? Bold and chunky, but subtle, all at the same time.
Behind the rattan slider is actually a bedroom; but I’m imagining it’s a walk-in pantry.

There’s no reason your bathroom can’t be as layered and warm as a bedroom. I love how just two elements added here have completely re-defined this space. The double height (truly floor-to-ceiling) ochre curtains, and the turkish rug.

Steal this palette: soft olive cabinets, warm timber benchtop, matte white tiling and a rendered adjacent wall.

Love the mix of timber here – the darker cabinetry with the whisper-soft herringbone flooring. That marble top on the cabinets is also a nice ‘elevating’ touch – something you wouldn’t normally see in a bedroom/walk-in wardrobe, and it adds a little extra luxe. Beautiful interior design by Laura Seppanen.

More gorgeousness from Laura Seppanen. This is actually a laundry – and I’m not mad at the kitchen-esque tap, or the kitchen-esque splash back; I’m all for approaching traditional spaces in new ways.

Chic Centrefold


Photography by Michelle Weir for Rowson Kitchens

New Zealand designer Annika Rowson has just unveiled this elegant beauty – a third kitchen in her Rowson Kitchens showroom. Having a showroom that changes every couple of years enables Annika not only to showcase leading edge materials, concepts and functional features in kitchen design, but also to personally challenge herself to apply materials in new and unexpected ways.

Which is exactly what she’s done here with the centrepiece of this kitchen – that Corian kitchen island (in Cirrus White, if you’re taking notes). Annika chose to actually use the reverse side of the Corian to enhance its patterning, and then had it hand-fluted (which enhances the reverse-side patterning even more). The island also features a Corian Duo 023 bowl which is seamless into the top, and there are hot points and a full Fisher & Paykel integrated dishwasher on the inside curve of the island.

Perhaps my favourite aspect of the space is Annika’s tightrope-wire-balancing-act of depth and weight with light and softness – at one end of the scale you have the heft of the marble concrete floor, rich smoked oak cabinetry, bronze hardware, bronze glass… on the other you have the sheer floaty curtains, the almost-floating sculptural lighting, the creamy-clad upper walls and extra-high stud…

That Corian kitchen island in itself is a beautiful balancing act – weighty but white; curvy rounded edges juxtaposed with the linear fluting; the silky-smooth top alongside all the tactility and texture of the grooves and ridges.

In the right hand corner there, there’s a separate small black sink, with a matte black Zenith Hydro Tap (the taps that produce boiling water immediately) with a hidden Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer next to it. The drawer hardware is Blum Tip-On – press a drawer to open it, give it a small push and the drawer soft-closes by itself.

The elegant cabinetry is a rich Smoked Oak veneer by Plymasters, and it houses a tall pantry (with 5 internal drawers that open individually) and integrated column fridge and column freezer by Fisher & Paykel. Hands up who’d watch a video walk-through of this space *puts both hands up*  The tall cabinet pull bars (called ‘closet bars’, if you’re searching for them) and smaller furniture knobs, all in smoked bronze – yum, are by Buster & Punch.

This gallery-esque display unit features backlit lighting by Hafele and – perhaps my favourite touch – bronze glass.

I spy with my little eye – the Smoked Oak rangehood unit is actually curved to match the radius of the island

 The benchtop above is Dekton in (black, textured) Sirius, and Annika chose travertine finger tiles by Tile Depot to mirror the vertical lines in the island and upper wall.

Those lights are bubble pendants by Mr Ralph, and the island tap is a Plumbline Buddy in a brushed nickel finish.
