Attic Guest Room by Vincent Van Duysen

Loft conversions are often associated with light and space, but this atmospheric attic room shows how a dark brooding space can become a stylish sanctuary.

This loft guest room was designed by Vincent van Duysen, architect, interior designer, product designer and all-round maestro of minimalism.  Despite the light pouring in through enormous skylights, the space retains an air of darkness with a hint of industrial masculinity.  The raw, unfinished look of the brick walls and timber rafters is complemented by broad wooden floorboards and an entire wall of wooden folding doors, behind which the bath, storage space and other utilities are concealed.  The room is sparsely furnished with carefully selected pieces, the layers of texture and subdued colour palette creating a discretely luxuriously ambiance.  This is a room we'd be delighted to play guest in any day.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
