This Renovation Takes a French Flat From ’70s Spirit to Modern Minimalism

Located in the quiet, small town of Asnières-sur-Seine, just a few kilometers from the center of Paris, this 807-square-foot two-bedroom apartment initially had a ’70s aesthetic. To envision what it would look like after a makeover required a high dose of imagination.

“I had been looking for a new place for about a year when I saw the real estate ad for this apartment,” remembers the 40-year-old owner Hélène, who works in fashion and lives here with her 11-year-old son. “I scheduled the visit for the next day and liked the place. It was very different from what it is now: It was filled with furniture and had carpet on the floor, but I really loved the soft and quiet atmosphere.”

Jaw-dropping renovation transforms rundown Rosewater villa into modern character home

Bright purple walls, patchwork flooring and a bottle green exterior characterised this Rosewater house just two years ago – it’s hard to believe looking at it now.

An extensive renovation has completely transformed the rundown villa at 828 Torrens Road into a contemporary five-bedroom character home.

While its old-world charm has been retained, modern design trends have breathed new life into the 1910-built villa.

Ray White Port Adelaide principal Nick Psarros, who is marketing the property with Nathaniel Kennerdale, sold it to the current owners in February 2019 and was shocked at how much it had changed since then.

“I walked in there and I couldn’t recognise it,” he said.

“It was absolutely putrid when I walked in the first time, it had been let go.”

He said it was tired and dilapidated inside while the backyard was full of rubbish, but that didn’t deter the buyers.

This modern-styled farmhouse welcomes family and friends with its architecturally arched entry and adjacent screened porch.

This home melds the eras in a blend of mill-work accents and rich wood detailing. Just inside the foyer, the great room touts wood-beamed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows overlooking the natural 2.25-acre landscape.

Wood floors and details like board and batten and shiplap create a warm and clean design in the space. A wooden mantle sits atop the shiplap fireplace and creates an ambiance and airiness in the room.

The gourmet kitchen is complete with open glass shelving, high-end appliances and a large

A modern family-home renovation that puts play first

The Toronto home of Greg Hall and Meghan Walker.

Riley Snelling/Riley Snelling

Eight years ago, Greg Hall and Meghan Walker, two entrepreneurs, bought their Toronto home because it had four separate apartments. Their plan was to live on the ground level, with Mr. Hall’s mom, who was in the process of downsizing, upstairs in a separate suite. Two basement units were to be rented out to offset the cost of the house.

At the time, the couple had a young daughter, and their 1,750-square-foot Summerhill flat felt comfortable. Things started getting tighter after their second daughter was born, more so with the birth of their third little girl. Two years ago, to alleviate their cramped quarters, Mr. Hall and Ms. Walker decided to take back their basement, doubling their living space. (Expanding to the second level was never an option – who would ever dare to evict their own mother?)

Doubling Down on a Modern Farmhouse Design on Long Island

A quick decision to relocate turned into an epic renovation for Ted and Loren Kobus.

Moving to the New York City area from Greater Philadelphia in 2012 for Mr. Kobus’s work, the couple bought a 1960s split-level home on the North Shore of Long Island, then radically changed the house—twice.

Last year, after an art- and furniture-buying spree, they finally considered the project finished. They ended up with a two-story modern farmhouse that bears little resemblance to the original.

The two, now in their early 50s, live there with their three children, now all teenagers.

The couple paid $839,000 for the 3,500-square-foot, four-bedroom original home on 2 acres, situated not far from Huntington Bay. They then spent the first few years, and some $900,000, to add 1,500 square feet to the house, including the second story, a new kitchen and new bathrooms. Starting in 2016, they spent $100,000 to re-landscape

The ‘Aquarius’ House: Opal’s Encino Midcentury Modern Home

The song “Aquarius” from the musical “Hair” references a time of peace, love, harmony, and “trust abounding.” So it is fitting that executive producer John McNamara chose to name his 2015 television series, set in 1967 Los Angeles — two years before the horrific Tate-LaBianca murders cast an indelible pall over the city — in honor of the tune. Billed as historical fiction, “Aquarius” (currently streaming on Netflix) follows Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony) after his release from his second long-term prison stint, as he assembles his so-called “family,” attempts to start a music career, and begins to enact his reign of terror. Also at the center of the story is dogged Hollywood PD detective Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny), a World War II vet fixated on nailing Manson, as well as righting other wrongs of the period.

The SHRBA Parade of Homes continues until Sept. 20. This week’s featured show home boasts a modern hardie board and brick exterior in the desirable neighbourhood of Varsity View in this Lexis Homes show home.

Graceful trees canopy the street at 1312 15th Street East in Saskatoon’s Varsity View neighbourhood where Lexis Homes’ Parade of Homes entry sits, showcasing a unique modern exterior.

The proximity to the University of Saskatchewan and downtown, along with a combination of traditional elements with modern twists, will make it an attractive design for many.

“You’ll notice we’ve gone with 10-foot ceilings on the front of the house,” points out Lexis president Cam Skoropat. He explains the goal was to maximize the amount of natural light in the space. With no windows allowed on the sides of the house, the oversized window in the living room and generous window in

Terence Conran, British tastemaker who popularized modern design, dies at 88

A restless entrepreneur with a sometimes volatile personality, he took his ideas around the world and once owned an empire of 90 stores with annual revenue of more than $2 billion. Calling himself a “hard-working hedonist,” he opened more than 50 restaurants, wrote more than 40 books, ran a design studio and later an architecture and urban planning firm.

All of it was built on the simple idea that good design leads to better living.

“No one has done more to change the way that Britain looks, or the way we look at things,” Deyan Sudjic, the onetime director of London’s Design Museum — another of Mr. Conran’s creations — told the Telegraph newspaper in 2011. “He’s changed the way our living rooms look, what we cook, where we go on holiday, our restaurant habits. . . . His influence has been enormous.”

Mr. Conran died Sept. 12 at Barton
