Maike Design Studio for TIDE Design

Tide Design Showroom - Melbourne, Australia  // Interior Architecture by Maike Design Studio // Styling by Ruth Welsby

This felt like a beautiful, fresh post for you to enjoy over what I hope is a VERY relaxing holiday period!
Interior Architect Mairead Murphy of Maike Design Studio recently teamed up with exciting furniture brand, Tide Design to help them transform a derelict old factory building (adjacent to their workshop) in Melbourne into this DREAM retail space!
Aside from the truly covetable furniture by Tide – the overall vibe and detail of this space has a lot that can be drawn on in terms of inspiration for your own home!

Mairead had this to say about the collaborative project:

” Working with a long narrow space, a number of angled stages were set to create a meandering path through the space, shifting visual focus from side to side across the width of the showroom to specially grouped furniture ‘sets’ rather than straight to the back of the space. ”

Explore more of the Maike projects here and the awesome collection from Tide Design here.

Down the long driveway, you’ll see it

"Down the long driveway, you'll see it" : By Mary Gaudin & Matthew Arnold // New Zealand Modernist Homes

Mary Gaudin is a New Zealand photographer mostly based in France – however on a recent trip home, armed with camera and an idea she hit the road to explore some of our country’s residential modernist gems. She explains that while the houses are “a little dusty and slightly worn around the edges” the goal of the profiles was to share them in a sense beyond their architectural features. Mary sort to capture them as they are lived in right now, how they sit in their surroundings and with the help of Matt Arnold, has shared stories of how their owners live in them now.

“Down the Long Driveway, You’ll see it”  is a wonderful, interesting book for the design lover in your life!

Nice note – The title of the book comes from a phrase in an email from Bruce Martin giving directions to his home at Bridge Pā. Filled with a lifetime’s of pottery both from Bruce and Estelle’s work, together with gifts from potter friends, the Martin’s home highlights the particular mix of craftsmanship and design which is reminiscent of all the homes shown in this book.

NZ HOUSE + GARDEN: SUPREME AWARD

Supreme Winner of NZ House & Garden’s Interior of the Year awards 2014. : Kitchen by architect and homeowner Felicity Brenchley // Photography by Jane UssherI definitely thought this snappy little kitchen was worth a share with you all. Designed (and largely built!) by architect/homeowner Felicity Brenchley and her husband, the kitchen took out not only the Kitchen category in the recent NZ Home and Garden Interior Awards but also the supreme prize.
Built on a budget, the space is super flexible with the movable island bench built on an old bbq trolley. I am also a sucker for the mix of smooth wood vs neutral cabinetry broken up with THOSE tiles!
You can check out more shots of the clever space as it extends into the living area here.

House by Bureaux

 House designed by Bureaux in Auckland, New Zealand. Appearing in Urbis Magazine / Article written by Michael Barrett / Photography by Simon Devitt

And today this rich delicious cover hits shelves!
This Auckland house doesn’t feel remotely local to me. I am obsessed with its warm, textural furnishings set against the hard beautiful lines of a modern building.
It’s close to exactly how I would live given the chance to start from the ground up!
Designed by exciting design practice; Bureaux, you can learn much much more about it in the article shot by Simon Devitt and written by Michael Barrett for Urbis.

FRANKIE SPACES: Kate + Mal Heppell

FRANKIE SPACES: Kate + Mal Heppell / Photography by Hilary Walker / Interview by Samantha Prendergast. Featured in new column of Frankie Magazine: SPACES - Where Creative People Live, Work and Play.

My break times have been spent on the sofa the last few days as I’ve been lapping up the stories and peeks into other peoples homes in the brand new volume of SPACES from Frankie Magazine.
After much consideration I decided one of my most favourite features was the Point Lonsdale home of Kip + Co designer; Kate and her landscape designer husband; Mal Heppell. Photographer Hilary Walker and writer; Samantha Prendergast give readers a great introduction and background to this special property which has me dreaming of discovering rural, overgrown gems just like it!

I highly recommend SPACES as an addition to the bedside/coffee table – nothing like a little motivation and inspiration that looks good too!
