Dacha in the City

Loft in Pushkin by Horomystudio

Russia is well known for its dachas, or country cottages - holiday retreats where city dwellers can go to refresh and recharge.  But why brave the Friday night traffic out of the city when you can recreate the same rustic appeal right in the heart of town?  The architects at Horomystudio were perhaps just so inspired when they designed this unique loft in Pushkin, a historical resort town south of St Petersburg.

This 176 square metre loft exudes contemporary style with more than a dash of rustic charm.  The extensive use of wood on the floors, ceilings and wall panels makes the loft feel almost like a ski chalet, whilst the exposed brickwork and metal details offer a hint of industrial chic.  Combine that with super slick bathrooms, statement lighting and luxuriously upholstered sofas and you have a cool, contemporary city pad with all the charms of a country cottage.

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?
