Inspired by the latest feature on Melbourne's latest designer coffee house. Bringing the lush vibes from The Stella Collective's amazing design into your home is too easy with these awesome pieces.
The latest creation from Melbourne based interior studio, The Stella Collective, has set a new design bench mark for inner city coffee spots. From the colour palette's calming tones, to the combination of textured finishes, every element in this space has been exceptionally considered.
Soft shades of pink on the walls set the tone for this small urban escape and is the perfect backdrop to an array of striking design features throughout. Backing the rear of the main counter are mirrored screens featuring beautifully detailed art by Beth Emily. This works to create both a focal point upon entry whilst doubling to cleverly conceal the back of house.
Layered amongst the soft hues is sleek black steelwork scattered throughout the lighting fixtures, shelving and mirrors. This as well as the granite flooring and raw concrete elements offset the smooth, blonde timbers to round off the scheme. Potted greenery breathes a freshness into the space and adds the final touches to this inviting coffee sanctuary.
Warehouse Brothers is a must on the list of inventive new spots to check out in Melbourne.
On the list of tranquil spaces you'd have to agree that a light filled, clean and crisp bedroom is pretty high up there. There's nothing like spending a Sunday morning curled up in fresh linen with a hot tea and no where else you need to be. This master bedroom in the home of Amy from HomeyOhMy blog is the embodiment of simple, clean cut design.
Pairing a fundamentally Scandinavian design approach with a monochrome palette works perfectly to balance the room. Keeping a space functional and decluttered is at the heart of the Scandi style principles, prioritising the necessities and mixing in pieces that hold meaning to you or that you find beauty in.
This space is one that showcases this style perfectly. The small touches of greenery along with the simple artwork and elements of texture in the soft furnishings and styling pieces work together to make the space homely and personal ♥
Designed by architecture firm Onion, the Sala Ayutthaya Resort in Thailand is a one of a kind holiday retreat. The hotel is host to an impeccable array of quality materials, considered textures and a simplistic, naturally derived colour palette, which combined together, make for a harmonious and fresh oasis.
The collection of twenty-six boutique residence's are all individual in their design and offer a uniquely different experience to each of its guests. All are connected with paralleled brick walls, which curve and circulate throughout the premises. Carefully considered by the designers, this uniquely provides a level of privacy to each villa, whilst keeping a continual flow throughout. The textural red-bricks are a perfect juxtaposition to the buildings simple white walls and it is these elements that set the perfect backdrop for the stunning outdoor areas.
With various layers of terraces, courtyards, step decks and swimming pools all surrounded in crisp marble tiles, its easy to see why the outdoor spaces steal the show and become the focal point of this design. The overall attention to detail is evident throughout and set this resort miles apart, making for the most inviting and tranquil holiday setting you could imagine!

These beautiful prints seem to keep popping up everywhere I look lately, not that I'm complaining! The new series by Brent Rosenberg features paired back geometric patterns and soft pastels all wrapped up over stunning graphic portraits, which make for a perfect combination.
A Melbourne based graphic designer, Rosenberg established his company in 2012 leading in the opportunity to delve into his craft. This latest collection of digital artworks have proved to be a huge success. The eye catching prints explore intricate geometric shapes as well as organic form and strike an impeccable balance between the two.
"The beauty of my art is in the detail, from afar they look very different in contrast to up close, its a simple concept that makes for a complex outcome."
2016 has seen an explosion of contemporary takes on past design ideals in decor and furniture. I for one can't get enough of the recent Scandinavian twists on almost every line of furniture and decor at the moment. The 'scandi' design principals, which focus around simplistic materials, textures and lines have been an overriding theme in the interiors world and have taken on a whole new modern flare.
Raw materials seem to be the base of the current seasons trends with tons of marble and textured concrete being seen in gorgeous table tops as well as home wares. Paired with clean blonde, ashy timbers, Nordic has never looked so good!
Here are just a few of my favorite spaces to get you all inspired.
Ok...after endless pondering and procrastinating, I've finally put pen to paper ( kind of ) and strung together my first post! If you're reading this then welcome, and bare with me while I fumble through figuring out this blog thing!
Being a designer, you're forever finding little pieces of inspiration from day to day. Whether its something in the pages of a magazine, stumbling across an awesome artist on Instagram or coming across some amazing street art. It may be my inner control freak, but once I spot something I love I like to keep a tabs on it.
Row House will be a place for me to share all of these finds, as well showcase the talents behind them! Along the way I'll also share some of my own work, from interior projects to artworks.
So to kick off, I thought I would share one of the publications that has been a platform for a huge variety of artists for over 90 years. It's covers sparked my love for a city half a world away and lead to my obsession with all things New York (including its Row Houses!). I've put together a collection of just some of my favourite covers from The New Yorker magazine. Enjoy!
