    Monochrome Masterpieces // Black and White Design Inspiration – Part 01.

    28th June

    Today I wanted to explore some of the finest and most dramatic examples of Monochrome Masterpieces. Although the black & white palette has been around since the dawn of day, I am specifically interested in examples that really take the use of the two “non-colours” to a whole new level, and in doing so break new grounds. These spaces are about extreme contrasts, bold gestures, sharp and refined detailing, slicing and carving of volumes that create a dramatic distinction between the positive and the negative, solid and void. All of them have shown a hard-core commitment to the black & white palette and I am here to applaud them…



    Monochrome Masterpieces // Black and White Design Inspiration – Part 02.

    28th June

    Here we go with Part 02 of the Monochrome Masterpieces. This post specifically looks at residential interiors which take the bold black & white palette to new heights. This approach definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, but boy aren’t these spaces exhilarating to look at. It’s interesting to note that all of these interiors have a very different “genetic make-up”. From contemporary, rustic, ornately heritage, super slick modern verging on futuristic, all the way to understated Japanese aesthetic – each one of these homes took the monochrome palette and made their bitch…



    Mesmerising Mirrored Mood // Interiors & Art Installations.

    12th April

    Today’s post sings praises to mirrored interiors and art installations. I’m a huge fan of mirrors in interiors. Enormous, single piece mirrors that extend floor to ceiling. No joints please, thanks very much. Mirrors are the ultimate chameleons. They are slick, sharp, and they just work…



    Slattery Australia Office by Elenberg Fraser // Melbourne.

    3rd April

    Located in an office tower building in Melbourne’s CBD, the design for the Slattery Australia office was inspired by the “innovation and luxury of the uniforms and vehicles of Tron Legacy.” This slick and sexy interior is a study in sophisticated and restrained materials palette and impeccable detailing. Now, before I get into this any further – for those of you who may not know of Slattery, they are a national Quantity Surveying and Cost Engineering firm. I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly never used words such as “slick” and “sexy” in the same sentence with QS and CE. You catching what I’m pitching…
