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.
I can’t get enough of the eclectic, European style of Daniel Suduca and Thierry Merillou of . (See previous feature here). I thought I’d share some random photos from their portfolio that I just can’t get enough of. Mostly because of that photo above. Dying over the brown/olive wall with the unexpected addition of some teal.

I could waffle on about how I love this or that in this Jackson Square loft by but she tells the story best.
“When approaching the remodel of this small loft apartment, editing was the key. First step: removing the eighties-style shag carpet and the mirrors that covered every surface. It was smooth sailing after that: white walls, dark floors, tailored drapery… Throw in an 800-pound steel firewood holder, a glass chandelier, and a favorite pair of leather sling chairs, and the place was ready for late-night cocktails and easy Sunday mornings.”
High up in the rafters in the centre of Madrid is a penthouse full of light and space, pattern and colour and most of all exhuberance. It’s about modern living within a historic shell, keeping the past but surrounding yourself with contemporary luxury. Fabulous Spanish interiors by design duo .
