Loved this little soft-but-substantial mud room situation.

I love this Dust Blue palette for a bathroom, and the Turkish rug completely makes the space.

Please allow me to introduce you to the reigning Queen of New Post Modern (she’s also the Marquess of Assemblages), Athena Calderone. Her New York home is incredible – unexpected, layered, super dramatic, and the definition of individuality. Go get lost in her online world, Eyeswoon. (And follow Athena on Instagram here)

Both of these gallery walls – in the home of designer Danielle Moss – sparked joy for me… and had me thinking about re-framing and swapping around all my own art and photography at my place. I love the mix of frames and sizes, and in the office-come-guest-room above, I love how the artwork starts at almost floor level. Perhaps counterintuitively, it actually makes that small wall appear larger, don’t you think? Also appreciate the little graphic punches of black in both spaces that tie in with the black frames.

Everything’s bigger in America. Just feast your eyes on this incredible kitchen!  The floor tiles! The two sinks! The PIZZA OVEN! The ceiling! You’ll definitely want to head over here to see more closely all the details of this space, crafted by Californian interior designer Amber Lewis. (Including what you’d see if you stood on this spot and turned around – an incredible living and dining space)

More from this same home. It has both His and Hers master bathrooms, this is the Hers. (See the His here)
The reeded cabinetry (custom-designed by Amber herself) is gorgeous, isn’t it? And that bath! I’d be a weird guest at this house, I’d just be walking from room to room pointing and things and saying proper nouns out loud: “Those floorboards!”…”That rug!” “That narrow tall door that looks like a picture window!“…

Here come those nouns again… The zellige tile! The calacatta marble bench seat! The brass door! The OCULUS WINDOW! I have burst into spontaneous emotional flames and drifted into the night sky as ashes.

 If all the homely, pastoral abodes I’ve been posting lately are Cottagecore, what shall we call the fantasy of being Level-4’ed inside an historic apartment in the centre of Stockholm (except the bakery and coffee shop downstairs is open for contactless service)? Lägenhetcore? Yip, I like that. New term coined. (By the way, this yummy pendant light by A-Step is actually available in New Zealand, from our good friends at Good Form)

My kink is Sinks.

Tbh, a quiet bedroom with a ginormous stack of books is my idea of heaven. (Mainly sharing this for that low bench seat which is glorious – this whole room is Ferm Living and the bench is their Oblique Bench in natural oak).

Canopy House by Leeton Pointon. That window seat is glorious, and I love the big open entrance to the bathroom.

Love the simplicity in this sanctuary. This bedroom belongs to the The Bungalow, designed by sustainable home architects The Sociable Weaver.

On the wild north-west coast of Tasmania (an area that calls itself ‘the edge of the world’) there’s a historic little town called Stanley. Tucked away here is a new boutique hotel, The Ship Inn. Built in 1849, it was a pub and lodgings, playing host to sailors from around the world who sought Stanley’s safe harbour.  Today, it’s a seven-suite guest house, run by a couple who upped sticks from city life to start a new one here with their kids. The richly decorated rooms tell stories of the hotel and town’s history. Interior design was done by inimitable duo Inside Story (that’s Lynda Gardener and Belle Hemming Bright).

And I know we don’t usually post exteriors here, but I had to:

There are so many more images to see here. Or, better yet, go and read the story of the inspiring family who moved their lives here to restore and run it. Article from Living etc. magazine hereCountry Style magazine hereDomain here and Real Living here.

And if you’d like more escapism in the form of historic / boutique accommodations in remote parts of Tasmania, you’ll also love Lumiere Lodge in Hobart and Captain’s Rest in Strahan. (Both of those links will take you to purpose-driven photographer Marnie Hawson’s website, which you could get lost in for hours – put the kettle on.)

More slow rural scenes from photographer Marnie Hawson. These were captured for sustainable and ethical rug makers Armadillo & Co,  at Lynda Gardener’s boutique accommodation The Estate Trentham. And, speaking of Armadillo & Co…

Photography Rory Gardiner

This beauty is the new Armadillo & Co Sydney flagship/showroom. Both soothing and dramatic; restrained yet undoubtedly luxurious – just like the brand’s products. Concrete, plaster and tiled surfaces offer a quiet backdrop to the large-scale pieces on display. Designed by Studio Goss.

Consciously chose just two (very different) homes today for you. An historic converted church, tucked under massive Norfolk pines on a slice of rural pastureland, and a luxury modern-Mediterranean home.

The lancet windows are everything

Have you ever seen a sweeter entrance?

I can’t tell you how much my heart wants to be here, now

Photography by Marnie Hawson (and more images here)

The eight-by-18-metre church has five bedrooms and a mezzanine floor – see much more over at Homes to Love.
If you love this style as much as I do, go follow the owner Cheryl Carr’s Instagram here (she also owns vintage store Albert & Grace).

This is The Pavilion – conceived by Proske Architects, with incredible interior details by Georgie Shepherd.
The  polished plaster walls, limestone and concrete benchtops, cool stone flooring and rustic timber and woven materials all transport you to a Tuscan villa. See more here.

Handworked materials bring depth and detail to an otherwise restrained palette.

indoor outdoor flow, woah: love the XL sliding steel-frame doors

Amazing curved timber architraves
