Brazilian Architect: Marcelo Rosenbaum

August 31, 2009

Having been on holidays in Brazil recently and visited a house with a kitchen and bathroom that bares a striking resemblance to the ones in the before pictures below, I had to post this up. I couldn’t have envisioned it being done up like this so when I came across this project, I was very impressed.

It was renovated by a Brazilian arquitect Marcelo Rosenbaum from Sao Paulo for his monthly television feature “Lar, doce lar”. As part of a show called “Caldeirão do Huck”, Rosenbaum renovates the home of a family within a one week time frame. This renovation was one of these projects for the Ferreira family.

Irish Interior Designer: Sinead Considine

August 21, 2009

Sinead Considine is an interior designer and home staging expert who worked as lead interior designer for House & Garden in Australia before opening her company, Upstage, in Ireland. Her work has appeared various times on magazines such as Ireland’s Homes Interiors and Living and Book of Interiors.

Here are some photos of her classic contemporary style. Some rooms may be a little too neutral but I  like the neutral colour palette on the soft furnishings and the use of stained wood.

Since I may be re-doing my floors, all I can see from this picture are its beautiful wooden floors.
