The weather has been so sunny here in the UK lately and I’m more than ever drawn to beautiful outdoor spaces you can live in, have a meal, BBQ, play or simply enjoy the sunshine.

This home in Sydney is a gorgeous example and I’m in love with the Crittall style doors and windows and the customised plywood kitchen all set against a white backdrop with large sculptural plants and rich textures. That window seat in the bedroom is pretty special too to take some time out, reading or simply observing the outside and reflecting – something that is in short supply around here.

16 June 2017

Norm Architects have managed to design another hip interior for the intimate new Naevaer restaurant in Copenhagen.

With a moody colour palette of dark greys, burgundy and black the industrial space has been given intimacy and tactile natural materials like stone, wood, metal and decorative plants with large foliage add warmth to the raw concrete walls.

It’s a casual but upmarket restaurant where you can enjoy fine wines from around the world and French cuisine should you be one of the lucky few who manages to get a seat in this hip new place.

TRANSFORMATION OF FARMHOUSE BURKELDIJK AND FORTRESS HAZEGRAS

14 June 2017

Some architectural perfection for you today with the transformation of Farmhouse Burkeldijk and fortress Hazegras into a residence by Belgian architects Govaert & Vanhoutte.

Carefully renovated and sensitively extended the introduction image shows the clean cut between the old listed fort and the new contemporary residence reflecting the local architecture of long farmhouses. I’m fascinated by the original vertical gun ports next to the entrance and the remnants of four WWI bunkers that surround the site.

These historical elements give the building an additional dimension and I love how the architects have managed to transform the fort and the farmhouse into a contemporary residence giving it an open floorplan and large floor to ceiling windows on the reverse of the fort. I can imagine living in this place invites reflection on the past and comparison with the present as well as giving you a healthy connection with the beautiful landscape of Flanders.

See more here.

AESOP EMPORIUM MELBOURNE

29 May 2017

Although completed back in 2014 I’ve only just come across this gem of a retail space that is the Aesop Emporium in Melbourne.

Designed by Kerstin Thompson Architects I love the dark luxurious and contemporary feel of it. Aesop is renowned for pushing the boundaries when it comes to their shop interiors and here in the UK the first store in Richmond was designed by Ilse Crawford who put the hand and wash basin in the centre of the shop emphasising the essence of skincare.

The interior of the Melbourne flagship reflects the dark brown and black of Aesop’s packaging which is a nod to the old apothecary glass bottles as well as the high quality ingredients they use. Sustainably sourced hardwood ply made from local Australian spotted gum timber is used throughout and accented with brass details for taps and basins and the use of edge razor edge technology to produce graphic wood perforations. The lighting was designed in collaboration with PSLab who used matt black shades in simple contemporary shapes to support the rich, dark and intimate mood of the interior.

INTERIORS CRUSH | GREY GREEN APARTMENT IN SWEDEN

25 May 2017

I’m in love with this grey green apartment in Sweden. A proper interiors crush down to the fact that the Swedes really got their act together when it comes to real estate photography. The interiors are styled to glossy (magazine) perfection and before you know it you’re hooked.

There’s no single wow factor in this apartment but the use of textures like exposed brick wall, white stained floorboards, cosy sheep skins and a fluffy cloud ceiling lamp in the bedroom all contribute to a stylish yet warm and welcoming feel. The choice of a grey green wall colour in the living area adds warmth and neatly breaks up the long open plan kitchen, dining, living space.

From the entrance the floorboards lead you straight to the back of the apartment where a minimal hanging rail displays some favourite frocks and french doors lead out to a small balcony that flood the space with light.

The apartment is so light and inviting that I’m not surprised it’s already sold. Now I just need to find my next interiors crush.
