This Edinburgh flat with its elegant Georgian lines is no shrinking violet. What could have been restrained and dare I say plain is instead alive with colour and pattern. Grey walls anchor the scheme allowing the designer to create a space that reflects the owners personality and style. The repeated use of pink and yellow must be so uplifting on a dreary Scottish day. Another great example of traditional with a twist.
An old plaster moulding shop on the ground floor of an early 20th century building in Barcelona was dark and derelict until architectural firm created a magical light filled home with central courtyard and a distinct modern flavour inside its rustic exposed brick walls. Love the almost sculptural feel to elements such as the staircase and shelving.
It’s like I say time after time. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish and you can’t get more fabulous than this Madrid communications agency office by . Oh those tiles!

Another fine example from the portfolio of Melbourne-based . The modern extension to the rear of this terrace house uses a striking materials palette of slate, timber and concrete block.A thoroughly modern look, striking, light filled with just a touch of retro.
