(Fancy) Spaces

This very beautiful home separates its living and kitchen/dining with a to-the-ceiling custom cabinet. Love that. They’ve also managed to achieve a style that’s both masculine and feminine; cool and warm
– with lots of texture to ‘cosy up’ the striking architecture. One of the home’s most prominent features is a 6 meter glass facade at the back of the house – I love the two-tiered curtains they designed for these windows. For more of a lookie around, go here.

I bet the owner of this kitchen makes their own slow-rise sourdough and homemade butter. Love those steel drawers inset into contrasting light timber with what looks like a concrete slab bench-top.

Yes please, I want a heritage home with a modern mezzanine level, accessed by a black steel staircase.

So nice to see a kitchen that’s not my typical Scandi flavour. Exposed concrete walls, stainless worktop and splash-back (normally I sort of hate stainless but here it really works), light timber cabinetry and a big marble dining table. Super masculine, I love it.

Another view of the same kitchen space. Now we’re adding what is probably original herringbone floors, a contemporary day bed, Danish furniture and concrete floors. On paper it shouldn’t work, but holy hecka does it work.

When your windows are this pretty, you put your art on the floor.  This is the Brooklyn, NY home of lifestyle blogger Ana Fritsch (Lucky Penny)

Loving this custom cabinetry which acts not only as insane levels of storage (good storage is the way to my heart), but as a divider which separates kitchen/dining and living rooms.

The couple who own this Melbourne heritage cottage bought it in 2006, then saved and saved for almost a decade to do the renovation all at one time. I love hearing things like that.
In other news, I would sell a kidney for an arched black door like that. UGH.

Lovely little spot for journalling and thinking and list-writing.

This barn conversion is giving me life. Love that raw cement feature wall, the amazing sink, and the beautifully pebbled concrete floors that look like sand.
