Is it just me, or does everything in every Paris apartment have some level of chicness no one else can get away with? There’s nothing exceptional about this apartment, but add in some to-die-for views out the windows, chevron hardwood floors (my dream), some cool tile and then add in a bunch of vintage furniture and accessories and it’s a total gem that is bright and cozy.

I’m having heart palpitations over this dreamy loft updated by one of my favourite designers, Jessica Helgerson (senior designer of this project was Mira Eng-Goetz). With a beautiful pastel, almost Southwestern scheme going on, it’s sooooo soothing and easy on the eye. The result is a fresh, bright, happy, calm, space with a maximum amount of storage for a minimum amount of clutter. A giant built-in sofa allows our client to welcome large groups of friends, and a cozy “rainy day nook” doubles as a guest bedroom. The bedroom is entirely paneled, with storage behind all walls. A minimalist material palette and a display wall of storage and open nooks, allows our art-loving client to easily update and change the decor. (Photos: Aaron Leitz)
Right in the middle of Sydney. Close to the bridge and the Opera House. Well they say it’s all about location, location, location but in this case it’s also about loft living. High ceilings with sleek lines and polished timber floor boards. Walls of windows and mirrored walls to bounce around the urban view. The mezzanine bedroom is a little disappointing, the bathroom needs a spruce up and I’d want to move my own furniture in but when you have those windows … sigh. Outrageously expensive at $1.55 million but that’s Sydney. Link while it lasts.
I’m stalking a building in Sydney’s Darlinghurst that from the street you would not particularly notice but inside it has been converted into three residences that celebrate its industrial beginnings. Upstairs a four bedroom home with stylish eat in kitchen and courtyard garden. Downstairs two studio apartments that mean if I bought the place you could all take turns coming to stay and we can congregate around that table. Only problem is I would need around $4,700,000. Oh well that’s what real estate stalking is for. Dreaming. Link while it lasts.
Architect Suchi Reddy of New York firm Reddymade has an uncanny ability of creating spaces that have a gallery-like feel but are functional and liveable. The following pics are from random projects from her impressive portfolio. “Form follows feeling” is the guiding principle of the practice. Reddy’s strong belief is that the quality of the space evokes emotion and that good design, calibrated carefully to the human, influences well-being, creativity, and productivity.
