Happy weekend! Hope it's a good one. The weather forecast here is rather cold and gloomy, but we're looking forward to a family dinner to warm us right up. How about you?

Love this beautifully designed apartment over at The Design Files, the Melbourne home of Dan Honey, Paul Fuog and their two year old daughter Frances. Brilliant use of plywood — this humble building material looks so rich and warm against the bright white walls. The touches of gold here and there are wonderful, too — a little glam contrast to the overall minimalist aesthetic. More here.

The brick facade of a house in Margate, England, appears to slide down to the pavement, revealing the unfinished inside. Called 'From the Knees of My Nose to the Belly of My Toes', this architectural sleight of hand is by the designer Alex Chinneck. More about it here on Architectural Digest. Makes me smile.
