Things we love: Kids rooms

A child’s room can be one of the most challenging rooms in the house to redo. However, with some creativity, anyone can decorate their kid’s room. Pick one item or color that will be the main focus of the room and make your decorating plans around that. Here are some of our favorite kid’s room, check out more on my pinterest board here.

Things we love: new york + london double exposures

New-York-London-A-Collection-of-Double-Exposures-by-Daniella_Arhitektura+ #art #photography (1)

London and New York would be nice to visit again, so here I am dreaming about my holiday escape anywhere. . . London and New York City; two cities so fundamentally different and yet so amazingly similar. So what happens when two of the most photographed cities in the world come together as one? I am loving this new photographic project by Daniella Zalcman’s. Pretty cool, right? I think for now I will just enjoy these beautiful double exposure photos as my dream London or New York escape is off the cards for now.

interiors: westbourne grove church conversion

#church conversion #architecture #interiors #colour #arhitektura+ (9)

London-based studio DOS Architects converted in 2008 the top two floors of the Westbourne Grove Church, a 1853 Baptist chapel located in London’s Notting Hill. I don’t know if I could live in church conversion but what I love about it, it’s a loft-like residence with an open floor plan and high ceilings that offers both comfort and privacy for its owners.

This new place embellished by the craftsmanship of the architects, mixes old with new, reuniting state of the art technology, fine finishes and architectural details. Even though the modern concept dominates some of the traditional elements have been kept, such as the arched windows and the gothic elements.

Architecture | House’s Award Shortlist

Houses Awards recently announced their 2013 shortlist for 125 residential projects across the eight categories. Presented by Houses magazine, the Houses Awards is an annual program celebrating Australia’s best residential projects. From inner-city terraces, warehouse conversions, apartments and townhouses, to freestanding homes that engage with the site and respond to the diversity of the Australian landscape, the projects on the shortlist illustrate accomplished design for the way we live.

Each year, the Houses Awards entries provide a unique insight into contemporary residential design and the contribution Australia’s architects and designers make to enhancing the way we live today. Below are just a few of my favourite projects.

Megan Hass Melbourne’s fashion illustrator shares her home with her husband, architect Craig Yelland and their two children. Their penthouse is located on the roof of an 18th century church. The renovation saw the exterior preserved with the interior gutted, allowing Megan and Craig to start from skratch. I love how she kept the base neutral which means you can completly change the mood with art and furnishings. Stay tuned as we peek inside her wardrobe, which she says is her favorite room in the house ‘It’s my happy place’. Check out her illustrations we blogged about in our yesterday’s post here.
