Obsessed with trough-style sinks. So so modern, but a little nostalgic.

Very beautiful look – love the thick marble benchtop/splashback/ledge combo, and the fact that they’ve put such a high spec choice alongside that rough timber chopping board and simple white cabinetry – makes an otherwise luxury choice feel so much warmer and more casual.

Linear loveliness. And there’s another one of those trough-style sinks, with what I imagine is hidden storage underneath. Using large format tiles on the floor (and in a matching colour/texture to the rest of the bathroom) keeps it feeling spacious.

If I win Lotto and you come to my place for brunch (I would totally invite you over for brunch), this is pretty close to what my kitchen would look like. Just add some green and some art.

Simplicity rules. Seeing this look a lot lately – tobacco tones with loads of white and light wood.
P.S: Behind those curtains are a big, open compartmentalised wardrobe

Predictably relevant to my interests.

This pressed stainless sink reminds me of the home of my childhood.
Nice example of how a typical 70’s NZ kitchen (ex State house style) could look with a lick of paint, a re-tile and some homeware styling.

Love a dropleaf table for a small kitchen. IKEA have a few options (easily orderable from NZ) or invest in a classic piece of design with
my all-time fave #wishlist dropleaf table, the Ercol Dropleaf, available in NZ from our friends at Good Form.

If it’s good enough for Jennifer Lawrence, Kanye and Eddie Redmayne, IKEA’s good enough for me.
Anyone else feel like they might be more efficient in a monochrome workspace?
