50 best rooms.

I love the idea of a ‘best rooms’ award – not house, or interior, but room. Aussie interiors publication Australian House and Garden does one annually. The contenders vary wildly in style and presumably budget (it’s not clear what the criteria is). This year features a bathroom designed by the architecture studio of friends from my Melbourne University days, in typically quirky style, rich in materiality and texture (no 23!). These are my favourites:

04 04.   Geometric cut-outs in an all-white volume by Decus

1414. Black-stained wood, exposed brick and a contrasting diaphonous curtain by Beatrix Rowe Interior Design

1515. Pale wood and simple, geometric shapes by O’Connor and Houle Architecture

2323. Rich-red slatted wood and bold white pattern by AlsoCan architects


26. Linear indoor/outdoor space by Drew Heath Architects

3131. Heightened sense of scale and a wall of art by Sarah Davison Interior Design


46.   Black framing against white-on-white elements by Whiting Architects
