It’s a rare and elusive BPB! Bedroom patio bath! Gorgeous work by Eliza Blair.

When anxiety and uncertainty besets me, one thing that always calms my nerves is a teeny weeny Scandinavian apartment

It’s the interesting mix of organic natural textures with industrial styling that makes this Devol kitchen a big winner in my book.

Australian artist Prudence Oliveri bought her childhood home and renovated it, filling it with her exuberant works.
I especially love what she did with the layout and design of the kitchen, above. That blue is such a happy, fresh colour, and I also dig the choice to do fully wall-mounted faucet and taps, which you don’t see super-often in a kitchen.

Spatial Studio


Segment Low No. 8 – with eight gorgeous big legs and a bronze trim (see that?).

Segment Side 02 has a curved antiqued brass base and a fine marble top

This first Spatial Studios collection includes a line of marble-topped tables with a mix of oak and bronze/brass legs

Segment Console – with 3 push-to-open cupboards each with adjustable shelves. Love the thin oak battens.

My fave, Segment Low No.6

Segment Side Table 01, in Oak. 

 
 
This furniture from New Zealand’s Spatial Studio stopped my eyeballs in their tracks, and I just had to share with you all…

While Spatial Studio is normally kept busy creating beautiful residential and retail interiors, founder Kristen Basra (winner of the Emerging Design Professional Award at last year’s Interior Design Awards) actually specialises in bespoke cabinetry design, and designing furniture is a natural progression of her craft. Our Level 4 Covid lockdown turned out to be the perfect creative incubator for Kristen – she finally got the time to make a long-held dream a reality, designing her debut furniture collection.

Every piece is handmade in New Zealand, and every material is customisable – it’s a Choose Your Own (Design) Adventure with stone finishes, timber and stains, metal accents, and sizes. Now that the debut collection is launched, Spatial Studio are aiming to release new items twice yearly, as Kristen is continually inspired by design and interiors around the world.

My head is gone for the Segment Low Table 06 with its six (yes, six) thick legs in turned solid oak. It’s curvy and playful, but still so refined. Explore the complete Spatial Studio’s collection here, and follow them on Instagram @spatialstudio to see what Kristen comes up with next…

Office meets dressing room: love this configuration

Incredibly restful and warm all-timber home by architects Lowen Widman.  I can see myself here writing a book (or just reading lots of them), looking out to the spruce and pine forest that surrounds this home. Fave detail: how they’ve used darker timber for all the window framing, did you spot that?

Love how the blue finger tiles here pick up the blue in the marble.

Love a reeded glass shower box.

This statuesque bathroom comes from the design minds at illustrious Australian studio Kennon+ architects.

You don’t see finger tiles laid on the long side too much, and I’m here for it.

This home is actually a historic Victorian in front, with a huge concrete extension out back. See the full tour here

One of my all-time fave interior designers, Avenue Design Studio, have posted a deliciously detailed tour of their new offices. DREAM. A heritage building flooded with natural light, with oak parquet floors and huge sash windows (DREAM), a custom travertine table, a rotating collection of art and objects curated for in-progress projects, and all the tools and textures designer Holly Marder needs to dream up her next beautiful space. If moodboards and material palettes are your thing (did we just become best friends?) head here for loads more lovely imagery.

Speaking of Avenue Design Studio, this artful home is the latest project off Holly’s moodboard and into reality. See more here.

Loves a ledge.

I rate this pa-late: sage green walls, light timber, and pops of black.

Sweet Scandinavian apartments are my Love Language.

I love the combination of super-blonde floorboards with the beige cabinetry, and before the whole thing gets too sleek and minimal, they’ve added woven baskets, handmade ceramics and an extra-small farmhouse style dining table with very casual woven chairs (with cushions). Layer-upon-layer-upon-layer.

Incredible kitchen from Spanish Queen House by the masters, Robson Rak. Take a royal tour here.
