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)

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.

Unpopular opinion: I’m not into Yoga.  I’m not patient enough for it… which is precisely why I probably need it, right? Well, if I were in Auckland, I’d be encouraged to give it another go at this beautifully-designed new studio, Basecamp Power Yoga.

Studio 11:11 (Melbourne-based, but co-helmed by New Zealand architect and interior designer Annabel Smart) transformed the shell of an old Grey Lynn warehouse – nicknamed the scrapyard – elevating it to the very warm, meditative space you see here. I love how they’ve kept the rawness of the original architecture, celebrating the perfectly imperfect surfaces and rough textures, playing up the industrial feel with hot-rolled steel features (like that sculptural clothing rack by NZ maker SaintLeo, anchored by a chunk of basalt rock), and layering washed timber, atmospheric lighting and natural textiles.

Kudos, Studio 11:11, you have managed to create an environment of softness and strength both; perfect for a brand that values both power and pliability.

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.
