Can it be love at first sight? Can I be so smitten with a home? Let’s just take a moment to take it all in. A loft. Tick. In New York. Goes without saying. Exposed brick walls. Also another given but then a light infused, dreamy interior that mixes industrial with boho, modern with artisan? Swoon. If I had to sell my soul to the devil for just one space I think it might just be that marble and brick kitchen. Soho Loft by Tina Rich Design.

It’slike I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. REHAU’s Design Haus showroom in South Melbourne by Taylor Knights.
Li and I have always had a “thing” for converted churches. If I was to buy this old Anglican church and hall listed for sale in Sydney’s Como I could move all my goods and chattels into the brick church and style up the old Sunday School hall as a guest house for when Li came to stay. The church was designed by architects Hely, Bell & Horne and originally built in 1965 before being deconsecrated and sold in 1997. I wondered why there was no street shot in the real estate listing as it is a very funky building. A quick look on Google Street View revealed a sad state of affairs in a not so picturesque streetscape but so much potential don’t you think? Link here while it lasts.
I love seeing how designers live. Case in point, the converted East London warehouse of Rachel Chudley. Her creativity and love of textures, colours and patterns in completely random pairings makes her home an absolutely feast for the eyes. (Photos: Paul Massey)
I know I have probably said this 254 times in various blog posts but I really need to say it again. I think I found my dream home. Let me give you some details and you’ll see why….
Located in the beautiful and peaceful countryside of North Norfolk, the property sits in 7 acres of wooded grounds. The single storey property is built around a courtyard attached by glazed walkways to a chapel ruin. The property offers 3400 sq ft of living space including an expansive kitchen, dining, living room with exposed brick work, steel and oak ceiling, polished concrete floors and an open fireplace. This room opens onto the courtyard garden via a glazed wall. Outside the property is a 2 acre walled garden with a beautifully constructed garden room opening onto the pathways and wildflower/herbaceous planting. There are majestic ancient trees, paddocks and woodland walks. I left out most of the interior photos because the decor is questionable, but the property is an absolute dream, and the interior has SO much potential.
