Miami Renaissance

It's almost the weekend and it's time to party. Put on a disc from a disco diva and pour yourself a drink. I love this Miami apartment by L.A. based design firm Studio Hus. Offbeat and upbeat, vintage and high end, retro and right now. It's the rebirth of 80's cool.

Stalking an iconic architect

I'm stalking a 2016 Palm Beach, Sydney house by renowned Australian architect Glenn Murcutt. Conceived of concrete, steel, toughened glass and black zinc cladding, it touches the land gently, perched between sandstone outcrops and Angophora gums. Functional, sustainable living in the trees close to the sea. Link here while it lasts.

A modern eclectic lakeside home in British Columbia

I can't think of a sweeter spot to spend the summers and enjoying the beautiful weather in British Columbia. What was once a tired lakeside bungalow filled with peeling wallpaper and shag carpet now stands out in the otherwise rustic neighborhood as a modern eclectic oasis. Situated in the quaint town of Cultus Lake, the cabin was fully renovated and refurbished by the home owners and decorated by the Plaidfox Studio team. Elements such as wallpaper, salvaged wood, and aluminum panels where added to give the home a more casual, yet designed feel. By request of the owners, we added only elements that were unique and heavily curated. Elements such as the vintage photography throughout the home were found in the local archives by the Plaidfox team and printed on aluminum panels - each telling the history of the home and its neighborhood. Working with an existing, unusual floor plan and stunning views, the decor and finishes were added to enhance the lakeside experience rather than just to blend in. Bolder, more fun pieces throughout the cabin help to drive home the relaxed lakeside feel the young family wanted. Unpretentious elements mixed with high design and artful touches is what gives this mid-century, industrial home its modern flair.

Bachelor pad

Not your ordinary bachelor pad in the Sydney suburb of Queenscliff by Jillian Dinkel Designs. Public areas in the renovated apartment are bright and light with a touch of retro cool while a more moody palette is just right for the bedroom. I'm loving the built-in seating in the small courtyard. Perfect for entertaining.

Stalking modern living in a historic home

I'm stalking one of my most favourite Australian homes. Colourful contemporary living within a beautiful Victorian era house in the Melbourne suburb of South Yarra. You may recognise this design crush of mine. It's by Technē and I featured it back here. While you drink in the pictures and the video I'll be sitting here trying to figure out how to rob a bank or build a Ponzi scheme to raise cash for the auction. Link here while it lasts.
