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.
