Bathrooms: a Sydney bathroom with personality

Bucking the colour trend.

A careful insertion of colour enlivens this Sydney bathroom by Pohio Adams Architects. The design also takes full advantage of the natural light offered, complemented by concealed and featured electric lighting.

HOME All-white bathrooms seem to be a common default mode, so how did you break out of it?
Chris Adams, Pohio Adams Architects Decisions driving the house design were about reflecting the clients’ personalities and an exploration of materials and how they would weather, so the home’s roof is raw zinc, the vanity solid oak, the tapware and hardware raw brass. We chose the tiles because they are hand-made, subtly inconsistent in colour and texture and could be ordered in a great range of custom colours. We could achieve a consistency of material through the house, but create a very different character for each bathroom through varying colours and patterns.

HOME This bathroom is an amazingly light space. What design moves did you make to ensure this? And how did you plan the placement of electric lighting?
Chris Adams There is a certain luxury to being bathed in bright natural light, and the elevation and orientation of this bathroom allowed us to fully exploit this possibility. Natural light is complemented by concealed LED lighting in the alcove, cast-glass, zinc, and brass pendants with old ‘squirrel cage’ lamps, and indirect concealed fluorescent uplights. Concealed lighting provides just the right light level to negotiate the bathroom in the middle of the night, while incandescent pendants provide a flattering side lighting, avoiding the ugly shadowing effects of downlights. Fluorescents provide the functional infill lighting when required. The colour temperature of the lights is carefully coordinated to provide consistency of feel and a flattering softness that complements the material palette.

HOME What makes a good bathroom?
Chris Adams The right balance of functionality and luxury. The feel of the materials and the sense of calmness they evoke.

Bathrooms: resplendent in black marble

Contrast, sensuality and suspense.

This Devonport home by Bull O’Sullivan Architecture is dominated by timber. The clients’ brief for the bathroom was to create a luxurious escape from the rest of the house. Dark marble provides an enlivening contrast.

HOME The rest of the home’s interior is clad in timber – why did you choose marble for the bathroom?
Michael O’Sullivan, Bull O’Sullivan Architecture The ensuite is a masculine contrast to the sensuality and intimacy of the timber-lined main bedroom. It’s heavily driven by the Villa Karma by Adolf Loos on the shores of Lake Geneva, which had a richness of materials and used marble not dissimilar to this.

HOME What’s the view like from the tub, and why did you decide to set the tub below floor level?
Michael O’Sullivan The view to the city is dramatic and cheeky. The view into the shower alcove [not visible in this image] from the bath is an act of voyeurism, not dissimilar to the chaise that looks into the shower at Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye near Paris. The act of bathing when one’s eye is at floor level becomes a lot more than cleansing, it becomes much more exciting.

HOME What do you think makes a good bathroom?
Michael O’Sullivan Contrast and excitement, sensuality and suspense. The bathroom is a chance to depart from ideas already determined in the public forum of the home.

10 Facts About Zapotec Rugs For Southwestern Style

Zapotec rugs are one-of-a-kind hand woven wool rugs. They are personal Indian art creations made only by the Zapotec Indians. These wool rugs are desired from collectors around the world.

1. Zapotec weavings are appreciated because of their old world craftsmanship, beautiful colors, and one-of-a-kind designs and patterns. These Indian rugs are the perfect decorating accessory for use in rustic homes and cabins, southwest style homes, or anywhere you would like to add color and elegance.

2. They work wonderfully when used as traditional area rugs. They also make great rustic wall hangings and tapestries. Use them for added color and design on your walls. They are quite similar to the Navajo rugs of North America. Zapotec rugs make it easy to achieve great southwestern or Native American style in any room of your home.

3. Learning some of the history of Zapotec rug making helps you more fully appreciate them. Weaving them is a time consuming work. The Zapotec Indians are from an ancient civilization. They had no known legends or stories of migration. They believed that they were born of the natural elements of their land, like the trees and rocks.

4. They were basically and agricultural center until the 1500’s and the Spanish conquest. They learned new techniques of weaving from the Spanish priests. They brought the design of the loom. The Spanish also brought the first sheep from Europe and taught the Zapotec how to weave it. The area of Teotitlan Del Valle in Oaxaca is a special place. This is where the world-renown rug making originated and still continues today.

5. The vibrant colors and designs are the first thing you will notice about Zapotec weavings. Some rug weavers have started to use synthetic dyes. However, many still use the traditional and natural elements from the area to dye their wool. Pass by the home or workshop of an Oaxacan rug artist throughout the week. You will probably see them dying the wool. They use large pots of rich colored dye, outside on an open fire.

6. Some of the elements used to dye the wool include moss, bark, plants, seeds, fruit and flowers. One of the most interesting dyes they use comes from an insect called the cochineal. Once the insect is dried, it is then crushed into a very fine red powder. This powder is used to make a rich scarlet colored dye.

7. Rug weaving often involves the whole family. Each member has their role in the production of a beautiful rug. The wool must first be cleaned and washed. Next, it is dyed. After that, it is spun into yarn. All this must be done before the weaving process begins.

8. It is fascinating that each rug has its own design. Each is a unique masterpiece of the artist. The fact that no two rugs are the same is one of the reasons that make these rugs very popular.

9. Zapotec rugs are ideal for American Indian art collectors that like original or one-of-a-kind pieces. They are also perfect for those who enjoy Native arts and crafts and rustic home decorating.

10. You have the choice to use your Zapotec rug, as a classic floor rug. You can also use it as a southwestern wall hanging or tapestry. You will definitely appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of these Indian rugs. With the many different styles and patterns available, you can find the perfect rug to go with your furnishings.

You might find Zapotec rugs or similar style southwestern rugs in stores that sell home decor. However, you will probably find better deals online. Dress up your southwestern or rustic style home. Add some color to your home’s decor. Share the beauty and quality that is characteristic of Zapotec rugs.

How to Update a Traditional Dining Room

Modern dining rooms feature clean lines and contemporary materials such as glass and plastic.
Because dining rooms are usually a separate room, far away from the high-traffic common living areas, they are often overlooked when it comes to decorating. Most people just place Grandma’s antique table — or a reproduction of it — in the middle of the room, add some vases and candles to the buffet sideboard, and close the door until it’s time to have a dinner party. A dining room doesn’t have to be boring and traditional, though. With some easy updates your dining room can be a modern space that reflects your personality — and might actually inspire you to entertain more often.

Instructions

  1. Strip the room down to the bones. Modern dining rooms do not generally have traditional details like chair rails or wainscoting.
  2. Replace outdated light fixtures. Instead of the elaborate chandelier, choose a hanging light fixture with clean lines and a more modern feel. Try a row of hanging pendant lights over the table instead of a single fixture.
    Replace outdated chandeliers with modern light fixtures.
  3. Strip the wallpaper and paint the walls. Choose a warm red or chocolate brown paint for a sophisticated look, or add a pop of color by painting an accent wall a brighter shade, such as bright blue or lime green. A bold pattern, such as stripes or a harlequin design, painted on the wall also makes a bold statement in a modern dining room.
  4. Remove outdated flooring or rugs. Many traditional dining rooms have an Oriental-style rug; trade that out for one with a bold pattern or made from natural fibers, such as seagrass or jute.
    Natural fiber rugs add texture to a modern dining room.
  5. Purchase new furniture. Modern furniture is simple, with clean lines and minimal detailing. Choose a glass- or marble-topped table for a fresh look. If you can’t afford all new furniture, cover your ornate chairs with tailored chair covers, or add a coat of white or brightly hued paint to wood furniture to freshen up the look.
    Modern tables have clean lines and minimal detailing.
  6. Take down the formal drapes, and replace them with simple, clean window treatments. Hang a simple valance or cornice board, or hang sheers or a Roman shade to dress the window. Avoid anything with multiple layers and tassels — the key is simplicity.
  7. Use minimal accessories, and keep them simple. Instead of a large, ornate flower arrangement in the center of the table, display clear glass vases filled with fruit or colorful stones.
    Display fruit in simple containers for a pop of color.
  8. Hang artwork on the walls. Skip the traditional pastoral scenes in favor of more modern, graphic pieces. Display a collection of black and white photographs in simple frames; lean them along a picture rail if you don’t want to hang them. Create your own art with inexpensive stretched canvases from the hobby store. Paint the canvas all one color, or design your own graphic piece with painter’s tape and acrylic paint.
  9. Replace ornate table linens with simple, graphic place mats and table runners. Look for place mats made from unexpected materials, such as wood, beads or leather. Purchase contemporary tableware in untraditional shapes, such as square plates and bowls, which are sold at most retailers, featuring bold colors and patterns.
    Choose unusual shape and colors for modern tableware.

HOME’s web editor picks 5 from the architecture film festival

From small footprints to cathedrals of culture.

The Resene Architecture and Design Film Festival opened in Auckland last night, and continues at Rialto Cinemas until May 20, before moving to Wellington’s Embassy Theatre (May 28-June 10), Dunedin’s Rialto Cinemas (June 11-21) and Christchurch’s Academy Gold (June 25-July 8). There are so many great films on offer, we’ve been combing the programme to offer you our picks. Here, HOME’s web editor Rachael Harwood makes her selection.

Maker film

1. Maker

This film tracks the way the online culture of open-source sharing has returned to the offline world in the form of the ‘Maker Movement’ – communities of people who work together to build things with the help of crowd-funding and local manufacturing. All of the best things in my possession were made by the hands of people I know; to see this Maker Movement continue to thrive in the face of so much mass-production is heart-warming.

Nature of Modernism: E. Stewart Williams

2. The Nature of Modernism: E. Stewart Williams

E. Stewart Williams pioneered the mid-century modernist aesthetic of Palm Springs, and it all started when he convinced Frank Sinatra of the benefits of modernism in 1947, instead of the Georgian-style house that he had wanted. I love everything about this period of architecture and design, especially in that Californian setting: the sun, the palm trees, the clean lines and swimming pools; it probably started the first time I saw David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash. 

Neon

3. Neon

Could any art form be more closely linked to its time and place than the way Warsaw was ‘neonized’ in the 1960s and 1970s? The story of these “great illuminated promises” as the programme describes them will be a fascinating look at the relationships between art, history and identity. I’m interested in this relatively little-known feature of Poland’s communist era, and the visuals are stunning, too.

Microtopia

4. Microtopia

Dreams, ideas and prototypes for portable micro-living solutions that aim to solve our planet’s overpopulation are addressed in this timely documentary, which redefines the meaning of ‘home’. I think down-sizing will be one of the most pressing issues for coming generations, requiring a dramatic shift in our cultural values – it will be interesting to see how this film tackles those challenges.

Le Semeur - Architecture and Design Film Festival

5. Le Semeur (The Sower)

This film closely follows Patrice Fortier, an eccentric seed-saver living in Quebec who is passionate about preserving plant biodiversity. The beautifully shot documentary is a glimpse at the intensity of his work and meticulous methods he employs to protect heritage seeds. I have had the privilege of meeting and interviewing an Auckland-based seed-saver who impressed me with the diligence with which she preserved some of our local crops; it will be great seeing someone doing that work at this scale.

Bathrooms: beach-house simplicity on Waiheke Island

Beauty on a budget.

The bathroom in this Waiheke Island beach house offers lessons in simplicity. Here, Julian Guthrie explains how careful planning and selection of materials can produce a beautiful result, without blowing the budget.

Photograph by Patrick Reynolds.

HOME This is a bathroom in a beach house. Were you consciously trying to make it different to something you might design in a city home?
Julian Guthrie, Godward Guthrie Architects This bathroom was decidedly a bach approach. It is entered via an external glazed door from a breezeway deck space as well as having a long slotted window to the surrounding bush. The decking continues as the bathroom flooring, proving a continuously open draining and easy-clean surface. The decking is always warm underfoot and inherently casual. Wall surfaces are simple prefinished surfaces that require minimal cleaning effort and also the minimal number of tradespeople for the construction process.

HOME What’s the best way to design a beautiful bathroom that doesn’t blow the budget?
Julian Guthrie The most important thing is the correct space planning of the room to maximise the sense of space available, and good lighting, both natural and artificial. The use of natural materials such as stone and timber always give a timeless beauty to the room. Bathrooms are expensive rooms to build, so you should select fittings and finishes that won’t date.

HOME What do you think makes a good bathroom?
Julian Guthrie My dream bathroom would open into a private garden courtyard so it has the feel of a spa retreat.

4 Things About Firepots That You Should Know

You have probably seen a movie where there is a huge bowl filled with oil or tar and is set a flame. Now, imagine that same concept, but scaled down a bit and burning an eco-friendly fuel. That is very close to what a FirePot is. So, if you are like most people, right now you might have been wondering what these pots are and most importantly, why you should even know anything about them.
Because they are a fairly new product, you’ll surely begin to hear more and more about them, as more and more people just like you are acquiring them every day. With that in mind, you’ll soon know if this type of product is going to be for you and your indoor or outdoor decor in a few moments.

First, it is very important to know that these decorative pots are made of a ceramic, with an artisan glaze, and are intended to be used for both indoors and outdoors. One of the main concerns that you will want to be aware of while using your FirePots indoors, is to make sure you have the regular gel fuel when using them indoors. This may sound simple, but this is a commonly overlooked concern that can now be avoided with your broadened insight.

Because the citronella gel fuel is not appropriate for indoors, and could cause some health concerns if used indoors, this is why we strongly suggest having the regular gel fuel for indoor usages, and the citronella gel fuel for outdoor usages, as being the most important thing to know about these new decorative FirePots.

Secondly, these ceramic pots are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, regardless of your current indoor or outdoor decor motif. When you are browsing the wide selection of pots, you will notice that the artisan glazes will nicely blend, mix and compliment just about any different varieties of home decor motifs that you may have. Especially outdoor decor motifs. But, we will review more on that in a moment.

When picking out your decor, for indoors and outdoors, it is usually a great idea to consult with your significant other. This is usually recommended with most major home decor and outdoor decor purchases and home upgrades. However, these decorative items are really more of an accent piece, and this type of consulting is not really necessary to get into for this type of accessory purchasing. Besides, you may be surprised that when you receive your new ceramic gel fuel FirePots, your significant other will probably want to get several more. Once they have seen how beautiful these decorative ceramic home and garden accents truly are, this is what usually happens.

The third thing that you should know about the decorative ceramic FirePots is that there is a very limited number of places to get them. Most of the other types of pots that are available are not the artisan glazed ceramic pots like being described here. Cool garden things are actually not everywhere you might imagine them to be. These new ceramic pots are cool no doubt, and you will not need to look far for just the right place to put one, once you get yourself a couple of them.

Finally, another important thing to know about these decorative accent pieces, and fourth on this list of things you should know about FirePots, is that they have been designed to be a timeless piece of decor. When you have classic, beautiful, handcrafted and glazed ceramic decor, it is really something special and unique. They will surely last for several seasons and be at the top of your list when ever you are entertaining guests.

And to note on that, your guests will definitly take notice of these decorative accent pieces. This is great because it will probably make way for an excellent conversation piece all the while enjoying its beauty and twittering flame. Besides, we all love to get our guests a little envious, right…

So, with an understanding more about the important things to know and consider with these decorative pots, you surely will have a wonderful time this year decorating your home and garden, both indoors and outdoors, with beautiful, hand glazed, ceramic, gel fuel FirePots.
