I’m a long time fan of the work of Sydney Design Studio Arent & Pyke, I love their clean aesthetic, eye for detail and their use of colour.
Barcom Terrace project is a sympathetic modernization of an 1800’s boarding house all of the images are gorgeous but the 3 that catch my eye are below…
The unexpected use of concrete to create bench seating that then cleverly flows into the fire hearth grounds the room, the squab and cushion combination on the bench seat is again thoughtful. Default decision (as discussed on my previous blog) would be to have the squab full length with a multitude of cushions … I love the thoughtful detail of the short squab and the combination of cushion shapes the over-sized wall mounted lamp adds an intimacy to the space.

As we gallop towards the festive season time spent dreaming of the perfect kitchen seems to increase, all the little niggles that you’ve had over the year seem to amplify, the drawer runners are sticker, the cupboards don’t cope with the mountain of food you brought back from the supermarket and the rubbish seems to multiply as soon as you turn your back!
So while you dice, season and stir hold those thoughts and make a list of all the things that don’t function in your kitchen then make a wish list, start a scrap-book of styles you like, remember the new kitchen needs to sit well within the architecture of your home, when its finished it should look like it belongs.
How the kitchen looks is important but beyond that is how functions, it must be a practical space with careful planning storage can be optimised even within the smallest of spaces. The clever folk at Blum have a fantastic range of products that do just that, hardware that transforms the space under your sink
