Small but perfectly formed wee workspace, belonging to designer Shaylie Roach.

Breaking my rule not to show images with blurry people in them (pet hate of interior photography) because this home is amazing! That huge glass conservatory! All the black-steel framed glass! And that master bedroom with the huge shutters!! Someone grab the defibrillator, I’ve overdosed on exclamation marks. See more at Dwell.

The Loft, an Air BnB accommodation in Byron Bay, owned and decorated by the duo behind Pop & Scott, who have their showroom below the loft.  All the beautiful furniture and lighting you see is Pop & Scott, as you’d expect.

Monolithic, minimalist beauty

Unsurprising that this home belongs to someone with an eye so good they’ve built a career of it, architectural photographer Casey Dunn. This space – a beautiful mix of designer and salvaged – is his newly-built dream home.

New fine dining Japanese restaurant, Esora. That  ‘painting in the sky’ in Japanese, and this calm, elegant and sensorial space befits the name perfectly.

Love this modern, gender-neutral nursery (belonging to Paper n’ Stitch blogger Brittni Mehlhoff) and all the contemporary art is especially a good time. It manages to balance calming and neutral with colourful and fun, and that’s not the easiest harmony to master.

A simple Melbourne grab-and-go coffee and lunch spot given a beautiful European espresso-bar look by Studio Esteta. Love this sangria colour and the reeded glass panels giving privacy to the kitchen.

The family home of creative couple Lara and Matt Fell, founders of fashion label St. Agni. You can really see the St Agni aesthetic in their Byron Bay home – simple but great quality, laid-back but classy, with a palette of neutrals, plenty of sunlight and layers of natural textures.

I just really (really really) love these slightly wonky tiles. Don’t you?

Love that reeded glass sconce and how it mirrors the drawer fronts. The very soft pink textured tiles are perfection, too.

Newness is from a long-time fave – Arent & Pyke deliver again with Lighthouse Apartment, a small harbourside home.

I really do try each week to find you spaces that aren’t cookie cutter; spaces that are on-trend but not trendy; interiors that present new ideas. This home totally fits this multiple tick-box criteria. I know you probably scrolled by super fast, you got that muscled Instagram thumb. Created by Studio Ezra, whose work on this kitchen and bathroom you all really liked a few months back, too.

The expensive, elegant feel of that marble counter alongside the rusticity of that exposed brick – I DIE.
The lighting is by Menu, and is one of my personal faves –  the TR Bulb Suspension Frame.

I need one season of a good new Netflix show, a sheet mask, this bathroom, and a do not disturb sign.
Since we’re talking about Menu lighting, this is also on my Top 10 Lights I Love list, the Carrie LED in brushed brass.

A very beautiful new restaurant in Madrid, K&Co. I love the floor to ceiling curtains which provide privacy, softening the visual noise and bringing a more cozy touch to the minimal and industrial aesthetic.

Love a non-matching matching chair situation, and a low-colour colour palette. The XL watercolour print is from Nynne Rosenvinge.

Vertical white-painted paneling clads the exterior wall of the second-floor bedroom, creating a house-within-a-house effect. The way it continues from the second floor down across the ceiling of the kitchen, and around the island is LEGIT.

Love the simplicity of the Baltic birch walls and kitchen unit

The Design Duo are Australian twins Alisa and Lysandra Fraser. After winning The Block AU 2013, they quit the police force to go into business together as interior designers. They’re currently renovating a single victorian terrace in Melbourne’s Albert Park, and here are two of the bathrooms from the project. Master bathroom above, guest bathroom below. If you love a reno, you might enjoy their new video series, head here for all the short eps.


More Australian design talent (*rolls eyes right back off head*)… This is the home of young interior designer (and founder of her own practice Folk Studio), Mariah Burton. See more of Mariah’s own-home reno home here (and look out for the kitchen and laundry which Mariah created, appliances included, for under $6K!). Photography by Kerrie-Ann Jones for Real Living Magazine

Wowzers in my trousers. This teeny one bedroom worker’s cottage in Fitzroy (Melbourne’s first ever suburb) dates back to early Australian settlement and backs onto an historic bluestone church. It’s been transformed by the never-not-amazing Whiting Architects. Love seeing some New Zealand design (RD Sofa by Douglas and Bec) in the design.

Original brick floors *dies*

This bathroom wins my award for Most-Beautiful-Features-Per-Square-CM – so much to love in such a teeny space. The Moor St project is more than just beautiful interior design, there’s a very very special and innovative architectural aspect to it, too – check out this Dwell article to see more imagery and read about the second floor Whiting Architects created, and how.
