Corkellis House

My Dad tapes Grand Designs especially so he can post it to me because NZ is a season ahead of Australia. One of the houses in the latest series was this one and it is just amazing. Even though it is located in the UK it’s design is heavily influenced by Scandinavian mid-century architecture and design. The simplicity of the architecture and the best collection of vintage furniture and objects make it a wonderful home so I just had to post it. Enjoy looking!

Exterior Ideas

Some outside inspiration. At the moment I am really loving dark stained wood on the exterior of houses.

Soft Vintage Kitchens

To balance out the few pics of more rustic kitchens I posted a few weeks ago I thought I would add in some pretty vintage inspired kitchens too. Some of the old china in these images makes me want to rush off to the op-shop to see what treasures I might find!

Bedroom Prettyness

A mix of pretty colours and patterns for your bedroom… they just seem so restful and relaxing to sleep in. And the quilt below is just amazing… I would love one like it, it somehow manages to be vintage and modern at the same time.

Merry Monday

I liked the rustic elements of all these images, especially the natural wood cupboards, ceramics and furniture mixed with the old books and stone fireplace.

Image from Bloesem – the handcrafted bench and stools are just amazing! (the cheese looks quite good too but that might just be because I am hungry…)

Amazing House Ideas

I wanted to save these images because some of the spaces and ideas about structure are so amazing. I had to add this house by A-cero to my growing record of images. The house is located in Avila, Spain and though it is large it could be reproduced on a smaller but still functional scale. Enjoy!

Architecture Thursday

Some beautiful houses in Melbourne by Kennedy Nolan Architects. I love the size and wooden details of the doors and windows.
