Old meets new in this modern makeover of a classic Spanish Mission bungalow by Melbourne-based design firm . The arch motif, repeated throughout the house, references the house’s history but in a way that is modern and fresh. A tight colour palette of black and white allows graphic art works to pop. Decoration is stripped back, lines are clean and contemporary, but modern minimalism no way detracts from the house’s past. A perfect marriage.
Minimalist, modern with heritage features retained and packed with standout Australian art. What could be better? I guess if I moved in I would probably fall victim to my maximalist ways and start moving more things in but it’s houses like this that make me wish I could Marie Kondo my way to a simpler way of living, expensive yes but simpler. I’m stalking in Sydney’s Surry Hills. Link while it lasts.
I have always dreamt about having a cabin on a lake somewhere on the outskirts of Ottawa to spend weekends enjoying nature and the quiet of the country life. This cabin may not have much going on in the interior (which is typically what you get from an architect’s portfolio), but it is breathtaking in its simplicity. I would absolutely maintain a minimalist approach with this space and keep the colour palette neutral with some pastel accents. You know, that Scandi vibe. You basically have to with all that pine.

My name is Lisa and I have a serious kitchen addiction. You would think that being part way through my own kitchen renovation (think country colonial meets industrial) I would not have a wandering eye but I see a good looking rack of cupboards and I’m planning a little cheating on the side. My latest crush? This wooden kitchen by Swedish bespoke kitchen firm . Dark oak, terrazzo worktop, clean lined, Scandi chic. Swoon.
Believe it or not this 90 m2 apartment in Barcelona’s Gracia district was once 6 dark and pokey rooms before its transformation by Spanish-German architectural design firm into light filled zones full of clever doors that open and shut revealing or hiding the functions of daily living. As a girl who loves a cupboard or rather what can be concealed away in a cupboard this small apartment is ticking all my boxes. Not to mention that gallery garden. Sublime.
