I’ve been a fan of the Melbourne-based development company Neometro since I came across their development on Smith Street, Fitzroy, which was completed in 2013. Neometro is one of Melbourne’s most design-focused and socially-led developers – the company has been involved in developing and supporting social and community initiatives since launching in 1985. Their residential projects are both beautiful and timeless, as evident by their latest (dare I say lustworthy) development at Six Brookville Road in Toorak in Melbourne.

You know when you spot something that’s just so good that you have to share it? Well, this lakeside timber cabin in rural Victoria, Australia, offered one of those moments when I spotted it on Dezeen. I love compact architecture, and I’m always drawn to natural materials. And, I guess, I dream about one day having a retreat, a place to escape to. And this cabin answers all of that – albeit on the other side of the globe. Continue Reading…

Earlier this month I posted about a fantastic dining-kitchen in black and brick – part of a renovated and extended terraced house in Victoria, Australia, which had been shortlisted last year in the Australian Interior Design Awards.

Needless to say there are many fantastic projects showcased here, but a couple did leap out, including this house in Melbourne designed by Edwards Moore. Continue Reading…

This is the kind of apartment I could see myself living in, in another life, that is – a life without mess or clutter, or piles of work to worry about, or laundry to deal with. If I was one of those people who had mastered the paper-free home office, say – as the home office in these photos, tucked behind that beautiful minty green sliding door, was clearly never designed for detritus. It’s pristine, like the rest of this super-styled apartment.

I’ll admit, black wouldn’t be the first colour I’d choose when designing a kitchen. This isn’t to say that I can’t appreciate black kitchens – I even wrote a post on the subject on Copperline on Tumblr, where I swooned over a variety of sleek designs. My first choice would be a chalky grey hue, but every so often a black kitchen crops up on Pinterest or Tumblr, or on another blog, and it stops me in my tracks. Continue Reading…

Located just south of Perth in the town of Margaret River in Western Australia, Karri Loop House is a wonderful example of a building that’s been designed and constructed in harmony with its setting. And I mean that literally as this house was built around three existing trees. The building was designed by MORQ and has an H-shaped plan that wraps around the tree trunks while framing a pair of courtyards. Continue Reading…
