I am up to my eyeballs in paint as I work on transforming my living room, and I would just like to say thank you to all those who told me to lose the mahogany trim. While I am still not sure about my entry way (where the majority of the wood work is) I am really happy to see the mahogany gone in the living room. I still have alot of work to do but photos to come ASAP. During a short break yesterday while working on the trim, I came across these 2 residences that I fell in love with. The first is a beautiful old farm in Denmark that has been totally renovated and filled with flea market finds. It has a really lovely neutral colour palette. (Via Femina) The other is a small apartment in Barcelona that used to be a series of dark, cramped rooms. Sergi Pons Architects created an open floor plan and inserted a white cube in the centre to house the kitchen and bathroom. Such stunning original stone walls and ceramic tile ceiling, and the result is a successful marriage of modern and rustic. (Via Living)
It's that time of the week again. Stalking leftovers. Lovely homes? Yes ... well ... er ... maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. Fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". It might even be something as simple as a cool staircase. This week I seem to have got stuck in Sydney with just a short side trip to Melbourne but you'll find a designer's apartment (not really a leftover), an apartment more about the view and the beach than the space itself and another that is probably just good CGI because no one has an apartment with that much cool stuff. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
Happy Friday folks! I have the day off today so I spent the morning getting my hair did, and now I am about to tackle more painting of my living room (a couple of sneak peaks are on Instagram). So I will leave you with some really pretty interiors by Anna Burke. She is all about a blank white canvas, with lots of gorgeous colours, patterns and textures to add visual interest. The result are spaces that are a bit feminine, and a lot fabulous.
