Stalking an artist's apartment

I'm stalking the inner-city Sydney suburb of Surry Hills. I'm stalking what would normally be a rather unremarkable 2 bedroom apartment except ... I'm stalking artist Guy Maestri's apartment. It's amazing how a stellar art collection can elevate the unremarkable to the exceptional. The price may be stratospheric but unfortunately that's due to Sydney's inflated market not wishful thinking that the contents are thrown in for the price. Link here while it lasts.


Signage can be a fun way to decorate your walls as opposed to traditional art. Large lettering is also a great way to add visual interest to a space. Sign Letters is a wonderful resource with lots of options in materials and lets you customize down to your spcifications. And free shipping!

Far from being un-remarkable, this place is very inspiring for me. Found ideas I will implement in my new place. I love posts featuring personal spaces that are not clinical, white, white. Spaces livable and personal. I love his place.

Count me in as another fan of this apartment. I could never be a minimalist.
