Stalking the 70s 40 years on

First home buying in Australian capital cities can sometimes mean sad, down at heels 70s apartments (or 60s or 80s ... you know what I mean). Cheap and often larger than their modern counterparts the temptation is to paint, change the flooring, slap up some white tiles in the bathroom and figure out how to fit in an IKEA kitchen.

Link here while it lasts.

Railway House

I love a well-executed conversion. This one is a former railway cottage situated between a railway line and a national park in Velsen, The Netherlands. It was designed by ZW6 Interiors and is such a beautiful marriage of old heritage and modern aesthetics. Steel, concrete & glass blend magically with greenery, crumbled brick and wooden beams. What a dream house.
