Hello brick and linear timber cladding combo
Love how that timber screen slides to reveals the home – just a little – to the quiet street its located in.
Love the cleanness of this tile against the white brick, and the curved edge on the island
The rice paper lanterns are from the Formakami collection by Jaime Hayon.
That internal brick staircase!mortar washed walls juxtaposed with ice-creamy dreamy textiles.
Um, wowzers in my architectural-appreciation trousers. This incredible home stopped me mid-scroll when I saw my friend Natalie share it on Insta this week. Located on the Southern headland of Sydney’s Bondi Beach, it’s the work of Andrew Burges Architects (ABA) and interior designers David Harrison and Karen McCartney of Design Daily Interiors. There’s much, much more to see of this home: head over here to Yellowtrace.
Mark Lewis was a career set and costume designer for decades until he left it behind to embark on a new career as interior designer. Please let this be a sign that you can completely reinvent your career at any time, and do your BEST. WORK. EVER. This is Mark’s own family home, a Victorian Row House in North London. Talk about Soul.
Everything has the most gorgeous old, lived-in feel. Love the lime plaster walls, those extra wide and not-perfect oak floorboards, the floating concrete shelves, and those waxed olive green cabinets topped with thick Carrara marble.
Mark removed the room above the kitchen to create this double-height space,
flooded with lights from Triptych windows.
The ensuite above (with working fireplace!) once was a bedroom. Head to Remodelista to see much more of Mark’s Highgate home, and to read the inspiring long-game tale of the remodel.
