Stalking with a failing memory

I have real estate stalked so much these past few years that it has all become a blur of gorgeous home after gorgeous home. It's a hard job but someone has to do it. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I remember this house the first time round when it was for sale. Or I think I do. I often bookmark houses, excited that I have found them then promptly forget them as I find another and another. The original dropped. The new house offered up on desire to Inspire. The point of all this waffle? I think I may have posted this house in another incarnation ... perhaps. The giveaway ... there are two versions of the living room. Still a wonderful inwardly looking modern home. Link here while it lasts

New from Martín Gómez Arquitectos

New work from Argentinian architect Martín Gómez. Sitting firmly within its landscape it is a contemporary home of soaring voids and intimate spaces. Holistically embracing architecture, interior and landscape design this statement home turns its back on the street and looks reflectively inwards to its private lush garden providing refuge from the everyday world in a luxury setting. More see previous work by Martín Gómez Arquitectos here.

Stephani Buchman

Reader's home - Dan's apartment for sale

Dan emailed us with a link to his Stockholm apartment that is on the market (apparently right in the block where the Millenium movies were shot). It's very small but he's done such an awesome job giving it character and not overcrowding it with stuff (although perhaps removed for these listing photos, but I'm thinking we give him the benefit of the doubt). And of course, it's all white, as the best Scandi homes are.

Putting life in the garden with Garden Life

"We endeavour to create spaces that people want to spend time in. Spaces to relax in, rejuvenate in and enjoy, because that's what gardens are about. They exist to make people happy."

If I owned the pool in the first few pictures I'd be ecstatic. Bold contrasts, lush foliage and a glass edged pool transform a small inner city space into a tropical retreat. Fabulous urban gardens by Sydney landscape firm Garden Life.
