HOUSE OF THE MONTH
Soak up the surf and atmosphere in this stunning home in Bali, converted from an abandoned warehouse. The owner fell in love with its double-height and wooden ceilings and instantly knew it could be converted into somewhere special. And special it is. In place of the derelict building is now an open-plan loft-style space which used wooden beams to create a mezzanine level for bedrooms and bathrooms. Think Brooklyn loft meets Indonesia. Wood, rattan and crumpled linen provide texture and interest to the decor and white-washed walls give an airy feel. A covered terrace bridges the gap between the indoors and outdoors, not to mention the lap pool, which also flows between both. Welcome to paradise!
CUBISM BY DESIGN
Figurative shapes, abstract geometrics and blasts of primary shades are the building blocks for our cuban-inspired decorating shoot, full of inspiring and translatable ideas. Abstract rugs have been transformed into show-stopping pieces of art while Picasso-esque drawings give kitchenware a new twist and a witty nod to the trend. Let your walls do all the talking with a striking wallpaper that takes its lead from graphic prints, and an injection of painterly fabric evokes the trend's colourful and diverse cultural blend.
Showers are no longer the poor alternatives to baths. The latest trends mean you can create a stylish private haven and enjoy a relaxing, luxury experience without a long soak in a tub. Whether it's using the new shapes which are giving the metro tile a run for its money, a stripped-back urban aesthetic or a combination of in-your-face colours and patterns, a statement shower space is a must-have in every modern home right now.
