I’m stalking a confection of a house in Sydney’s Watson Bay. A converted 1920’s Masonic Hall that has undergone a “Frenchification”. So many beautiful glimpses at what has been because unfortunately it has been sold for quite some time. A girl can still dream can’t she? Don’t miss the video for so much more.

When I first laid eyes on this house by all I wanted to do was pack my bags, hop a plane and move right in. It’s the Hudson, New York home of the firm’s founding partner David Mann. Intimate, simple yet stylish, a window onto how the designer loves to live. Speaking of windows if the front door is locked when I turn up to claim squatter’s rights I might just scamper through one of those multi-paned Federal windows to gain access.
I love the theatre of a great entrance. It’s all about setting the scene for your visitors. “Welcome. Welcome. Come into my world.” And there’s nothing better than the drama of a black and white palette like this foyer and staircase by design studio Simple yet luxurious, it’s a vibrant mix of black and white, old and new.
Haussmannian architecture, signature furniture pieces and a foyer now converted to a library full of books. Just about ticks all the boxes for my perfect Paris apartment. I think I’ll be moving in to this Alma Marceau residence by .
I don’t think I’ve seen such a lovely entrance hall in ages. The colour, the textures, the mix of old and new, traditional but not at all stuffy, country but not saccharine sweet. If you love these three showhouse rooms by you must see the rest of this Montgomery, Alabama based design firm’s .
