Today's Friday Finds theme is centred around two interior elements I'm passionate about, monochrome palettes and texture. Kicking off with an incredible home by one of my favourite architectural firms Whiting Architects, you may remember this Homes to Inspire Post from last year. Seeing it shortlisted for the 2015 Australian Interior Design Awards came as no surprise, but I was also interested to see another one of their projects included in the same Residential Design category. The Strand in Williamstown consists of two penthouse apartments located on the mouth of the Yarra River in Melbourne. Designed from the inside out, Whiting Architects let the stunning views from Westgate Bridge to Williamstown shipyards and across Port Phillip Bay drive the design. The elegant interior showcases incredible attention to detail. The monochrome palette is layered with beautiful textural elements such as the patterned rug and soft curtains in the open plan living space. The unique bedroom wall provides an amazing backdrop to the bed. See more of this incredible home here. The awards are due to be announced on the 15th of May.
These woven artworks by Mimi Jung are truly exquisite. Having studied both fine art at Copper Union in New York and graphic design in HKG Basel, it's these two practises that strongly influence Mimi's work and push her weavings beyond the realm of traditional craft-making. Hung from a copper rod, the subtle yet intricate style of the two works below, Diagonal Bar and Two Rectangles are my favourites.
