Adam Chinitz and Metropolitan Home's Showtime house

Metropolitan Home's Showtime house is an extraordinary display of many designers' talents, and it was photographed by an equally talented photographer Adam Chinitz. Each space is totally dreamy and the photographs are stunning.

More beach studios

Beach Studios is one of my favourite locations websites. The homes are simple, organic, lived in and filled with lots of white. I gathered some photos that (I hope) we haven't posted before that I love. Inspiration runs amok.

Stalking in Melbourne


Today I'm stalking the streets of Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne (and perhaps my favourite area in that city). This is the architect's own home. Which architect the real estate agent neglects to tell us but we are informed it has 4 bedrooms, open plan living, indoor outdoor living and intelligent design. I love the sense of continuity between the living areas and the garden so important in Australian houses. It's a normal working day here in Australia but I know that the States are celebrating Thanksgiving (not a holiday we have here). I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family today but if you're a Thanksgiving orphan or all "familied" out then pop on over and join me later for a virtual drink in this backyard.

Eric Cohler

It's been quite some time since we've blogged about the designs of Eric Cohler. I thought it was about time for an update. Always classic with a modern twist, sophisticated and comfortable.

Gift box


Aussie wonder architect Scott Weston sent us a little gift box via email. Oh Scott you shouldn't have! You're spoiling us. (Just pop Scott's name in the search box on the left to see how generous he has been already.) Here's what he had to say...

"We end up doing the most intriguing commissions for our Clients. Australia's Harper's Bazaar wanted a unique selling tool that targeted their advertisers for an upcoming magazine. They had heard we do intricate Concept Boxes and came to us to devise twin boxes that could be taken to advertisers as a seductive selling tool. In each box we have replicated a runway of the Bazaar Collections and have models representing the various luxury brands Hermes, Burberry etc. For each specific presentation the model is magnetised and can be fitted into the box and when the box is opened the focus is on that particular brand. All models are located in a separate magnetised box a bit like the Chinese terracotta soldiers awaiting their turn on the catwalk. On completion of the presentation it elegantly folds away leaving them wanting more!"

Scott, you and your team produce the most amazing presentation tools I've ever seen. Your boxes and models are a treat. Just when I didn't think your could top your Nagata Salon model you create this treasure. It's like grown up paper dolls!
