I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on . Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?
Can we just discuss how elegantly simple or is that simply elegant this kitchen by Sacramento-based is? Black, brass, subway and stone and as for that luscious caramel banquette … it all adds up to a definite case of kitchen love.
I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in the inner Melbourne suburb of Collingwood and have found a 2 storey apartment with roof top terrace that the agent describes as a penthouse. Yes it is at the top of the building so I guess it is a penthouse but that word to me conjures up images of opulent rooms, extravagant space, luxurious living. Don’t get me wrong. There are many things I like about this contemporary inner city pad. Being at the top means there is a handy roof terrace with great views. The building has interesting brass accents and the kitchen is a definite favourite with its sleek black lines. Simple yet very stylish. Your idea of a penthouse? Or should we just agree that it’s fab inner city pad? Link while it lasts.
Two days ago I had us all running away to the spa region of Victoria. We were renting houses and indulging (or should that be overindulging) in the local delights. Today nothing much has changed except the location. We’re off to the coastal wonderland that is Byron Bay in northern New South Wales and I’m not sure about you but I’m staying at one of the . in fact. 100-year old exposed bricks, timber beams, concrete floors and raw steel staircase. A mix of old and new furnishings, vaulted ceiling and dramatic draped curtains, hand-woven carpets and fine linens. Tempting enough?
A newly built home loaded with patterns (I count 7 wallpapers!), colours and lots of glamorous touches create max personality. Hats off to Missouri-based designer for keeping these spaces dramatic yet family friendly as the homeowners have 2 kids and 2 bulldogs.
