Laveta Brigham


Described by its creators as an architectural jewellery box, the Concrete Blonde house unfolds to reveal its gems from within a tight five-metre-wide block behind a heritage facade in Sydney. Principal Architect Shaun Carter, of Carter Williamson Design, said devices like courtyards or light wells played a big role in overcoming the design challenges of making such a narrow internal space feel generous and inviting – while still maintaining the heritage exterior and its place, aesthetically, within a row of eight homes from the same era of Annandale cottages. From the modest heritage facade, the updated cottage unfolds to

Laveta Brigham

Sutton Stracke is serious about design. She has two closets (and a boutique) filled with pieces from world-renowned designers, and she tapped an interior-design pro to spruce up her daughter Porter’s dorm room. And as we now know, Sutton’s fall decor is a pretty serious affair, too. 

In a snap that seems to capture her on the stoop of her new home, the fashion plate — who just moved — posed against a backdrop of gorgeous gourds. Leafy wreaths hung on each of Sutton’s black double doors, and artfully arranged pumpkin piles framed the entrance. 

The snap showed Sutton with

Feng shui lessons from a design master who has your back

Laveta Brigham

I was clearly in over my head.

When I signed up for an online course in feng shui, an ancient Chinese practice of using design to enhance health and prosperity, I somehow missed the part about its being a “master” class. My fellow students included a graduate of a three-year program on the subject and three women whose homes already had been feng shui-ed by our instructor, Judith Wendell, founder of Sacred Currents, a Manhattan-based consulting firm.

I, meanwhile, was a complete novice. And I was still struggling with the basics — including how to place the bagua, a

How This Medieval French Town Is Still Impacting Interior Design Today

Laveta Brigham

From Veranda

The tiny commune of Aubusson, France, rarely makes an appearance on must-see travel lists, but history buffs and design aficionados alike should consider adding it to their French itineraries.

However, Aubusson has its own namesake craft, weaving, that became so popular, the city’s name became a commonly used term for the rugs and tapestries produced there.

Aubusson became renowned for its carpets and tapestries as early as the 16th century, when they began to appear in royal residences. The

Drive by 2231-33 Valdina St. in the Design District, and you’d probably think it was an artist’s studio. It’s a warehouse with a gated entrance, a simple exterior and garage doors across the front.

But someone lives there.

In fact, it’s a set of multiple units. Keith Johnston, who owns Unit 102, was part of the early development of the warehouse and helped get it rezoned for residential living. Johnston, who is an entrepreneur, investor and the CEO of Branded Inc., has listed his home for $1,975,000. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and enough interior space for the current
