Connelly London

My heart! After a five-year hiatus, the iconic London store, Connelly has been reborn by the storied French duo Gilles & Bossier and for me it is perfection. Housed in a Georgian townhouse in the heart of Mayfair, the store is two levels of highly-edited luxury goods and one level of residence for the store’s owner, Isabel Ettedgui....

living simply

Located in Canada on the shores of Lake Memphremagog and designed by Montréal-based firm acdf*, the first thing that drew me to this house was the simple yet stunning timber staircase. The ribbon of perfectly stained woods cuts faultlessly through the stark monochromatic interior and provides the perfect anchor for the grand piano. This starkness continues throughout the...

Victoria – Coastal Cool

“This was to be a quality, robust home for generations” so say the designers of this home located in Victoria’s costal region. Architects Robson Rak were tasked with a brief from the client that this was to be home that could not only house the family (as well as extended family and guests), but also be a building...

Old Jaffa House – Israel

Following an international career, Tomas returned to Paris to complete a renovation of this apartment, which is tucked away in the chic area of Saint Sulpice on the left bank. As a whole, the design feels...

Whitewash – Florida

Located in Alys Beach, Florida, the architect describes the house as more “like a resort in Santorini than the getaway spot that it is.” For me however, I see influences from Bermuda, to Morocco and pretty much everywhere in between and what is more, I love it. Jeffrey Dungan was charged with creating this holiday home on an...

One Small Step

The idea of designing my own home is equal parts exciting and terrifying. While it is easy enough to make decisions for someone else’s home, for my own home the process is panic inducing so I can completely sympathise with the architect-owners of this home in Herzliya, Israel. The duo behind Jacobs-Yaniv Architects spent six years...

Artful Architecture

“Bringing art into the architecture” was the driving force behind this home renovation completed by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects. The house, which is nominated in the Australian Interior Design Awards, is located in the Sydney ocean-side suburb of Clovelly and is the definition of relaxed beach vibes. As the architect puts it “the notion was to create...
