Chester Jones

"Living contentedly is to a great extent feeling comfortable in ones own surroundings. Facilitating this is our principal objective."
Chester Jones is a master at combining modern and traditional elements to create classic designs that are timeless.
"The contents play the major part. Whether old or new they can stimulate the intellect and appeal to the emotions. We use antiques and artifacts from many different cultures and periods, not for their nostalgia but through careful juxtaposition they can excite one another, become re-energized and relevant in the present."

A week of stalking - Friday in the 60s

The Sixties baby! Sophisticated, sexy, open and radical radial plan. Design classics, indoor plants and a koi pool. What else could a stylin' Sixties aficionado want? I wonder if they leave the curtains open or perhaps there is a high front fence because I would be walking and stalking past this original beauty every day with craned neck and tongue hanging out. Too cool! Link for this Centennial Park, Sydney home here while it lasts.

la vallée blanche

I have expressed on this blog several times that I absolutely detest winter. How I have managed to make it through 35 winters here in Ottawa I do not know (trips south help let me tell ya). Some people actually enjoy winter and the activities that go along with it, such as skiing. When I saw this apartment which is part of a ski resort, I almost had a change of heart. La Vallée Blanche is a luxury four-bedroom apartment situated in the heart of Verbier, an alpine village and holiday resort located in the South Western corner of Switzerland, close to the border of France and Italy. It is world-famous ski resort and is frequented by both the world’s greatest skiers as well as the celebrity elite. La Vallée Blanche is conveniently situated just off the slopes, a few minutes stroll down from Medran ski lift and is centrally located near Verbier’s shops, bars and restaurants. I am a huge fan of rustic decor with some modern touches, and this place is FABULOUS. I could stay here - I would just forgo the skiing and hang out by the fire with a bottle of wine instead.

A week of stalking - still Thursday but wanting moar

What a tease! Sometimes real estate stalking just leaves you wanting to see more. This Newtown, Sydney home belongs to the LifeSstyle Channel's Brendan Moar. (Get it? Moar/more? Sorry bad pun.) OK so you would expect a great garden from a landscape architect but I'd love to see more photos of what looks like a funky interior. Might have to do more searching on this one ;) Link to the listing here.

A week of stalking - Thursday simply in the city

Today's stalking couldn't be more different from yesterday's sumptuous terrace. Same suburb but it is a simple terrace, tiny but terrific. How about that bath? And I love the simple earthy kitchen. Would love to see this house styled for a photo shoot.  Here while the link lasts. (Another stalking coming soon.)
