My name is Jo and I'm a property stalker ... but I'm fussy. A real estate listing has to be just right to catch my eye. Bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's leftovers include a darkly masculine art deco apartment, an artist Moroccan/ Balinese/ Indian/ Spanish/slightly confused folly in the Byron Bay hinterland and a house we've stalked before.

I am totally sick of winter. It is the worst one Ottawa has had in 20 years so they tell us. Despite my trip to Mexico, I have seriously had it. So today I thought I would transport us to Spain, where ceilings are higher, moldings are ornate, tiles are graphic, archways are abundant, and the decor is spectacular. Whether contemporary or more classic and relaxed, Barcelona architect and interior designer Meritxell Ribé is making it work and providing the eye candy on this too cold of a Friday.
A modern retreat up on the hill. Telegraph Hill, San Francisco that is. Climb the stairs and not only does a stunning view await you but the clean, minimal lines of the two floor apartment by CCS Architecture. Can common sense be sexy? Can practical be super stylish? Sure can!
Looking for some spaces that are bold and fun, comfortable but classy? Los Angeles based interior designer Hillary Thomas has a knack for creating vintage chic interiors that are a bit Palm Beach and Hollywood Regency, with dramatic colours and patterns but keeps it grounded with neutrals and really cozy furnishings. I love the deep blue walls above combined with the black floors. GORG!
