Hello lover!

Is it possible to love a house so much you want to leave your husband and run away to it? If so I may just cheat on Kelvin with furniture designer and maker Mark Tuckey's house. I have loved it ever since I first saw it in Inside Out a number of years ago and now I've stumbled upon it while real estate stalking. Of course Mark and his family have had a number of houses I would gladly leave my husband for and you can why in his press section. A woman cannot be blamed for losing her heart and head over that bathroom. I'm sure I could never afford it so I better stay where I am and just lust after it. Link to the listing here and Mark's website here. I need to lie down. My heart is fluttering!

And just a couple more views I lifted from Mark's website. God I love his furniture as much as the house!

I think in this case it is totally possible :-)

Love love! Do you know who the artist behind those canvas are {the woman}? I've seen them before but in yellow, and can't help but to fall for them each time.

The last picture is one of my favorites also, I 've it saved after spotting it in a design mag a few years ago.


The artist is David bromley. I believe he is also responsible for the vintage look artwork featured on the wall adjacent to the staircase.

Beautiful Jo. I love Mark Tuckey's furniture. I have every issue of InsideOut and for the life of me can't remember seeing this home before. What a gorgeous place.

@Anna Caroline [Design Studio 210}, I believe the painting is by David Bromley, http://www.davidbromley.com.au/

Just gorgeous- I'm with you. I sometimes find some of the places you post about too contrived- like I can't imagine LIVING in them even if they are beautiful. But this house...I could move right in. Doesn't a fire place just make any room look good?!

Hell Jo, there's plenty of room to take Kelvin and Mickey with you. You're last move was so easy I'm sure they won't mind doing it all over again. :-)

So here I am, happily reading the page with my morning coffee in hand... dreaming about (lusting over?) this fantastic house... decided to click over to the listing... and it's just around the corner (well, a suburb away)! This is terrible! It's one thing to admire (drool over?) a house from afar... but to know that it's so close and (if a sudden and large windfall came our way) we could possibly have owned it! Ok - so we could never afford it; but it made me feel queezy just knowing it was so near and yet so far.
PS - sorry about all the ellipses... it's that kind of morning...

Absolutely amazing!

I often drool over the photos on Mark Tuckey's website! He is probably my favourite Australian furniture designer and I love how well his stuff sits with Eames chairs etc. We are building a new house ATM and this was the inspiration for our kitchen - island bench lining up with the dining table in the same way! I love the use of yellow with timber and the red front door of course!! Gorgeous :)

Your post & an opportune moment finally lured me to Mark Tuckey's store in Newport Beach NSW, it was a long drive & I can now ticked his store of my must visit store. :)
