Stalking cute retro and courtyard

Just a quick couple of photos of a Balmain, Sydney home I found while real estate stalking today. Cute living room flowing to courtyard. Surely that's not a HD TV :) Do you think it was styled for sale (the bedroom in the listing is empty) or just savagely decluttered for the shots? For me add a bigger rug, more art, few more bits and bobs. Shazam! Feels like home. Link here while it lasts.

Location, location, location

 

Never mind the apartment. Look at the view! Seldom use OMG but OMG! OMG the view! I think if I could afford it I'd be hiring a top gun interior designer to help the inside sit sympathetically with the outside. Real estate stalking right on the shores of Sydney Harbour. Kiribilli to be exact. Do you think the bridge noise and pollution would turn you off? I say just pull those double glassed windows closed. Link here while it lasts.

The Sanctuary

Cathy sent us an email the other day about a church conversion in her state of Seattle she thought we'd enjoy. She mentioned it has finally come on the market after a long and winding road including the first developer running out of money to finish the job. This former 'First Church of Christ, Scientist' is now 12 incredible modern condominiums. The website states: "Enjoy voluminous interiors boasting soaring ceilings up to 30 feet high and generously-scaled floor plans of 1,600 to more than 3,000 square feet of living space. Many homes include rooftop terraces... pricing from the low $500,000s to more than $1 million". Very cool! Below are 2 of these condos (a basic one and a not-so-basic one).

Rainbow

Beautiful, beautiful Blenko glass in all colours of the rainbow. Beautiful, beautiful photograph by Keith Scott Morton. Just wish the clown would go away. Just saying you know. Coulrophobia. If this was in a magazine I could fold the page just so and make it disappear.

Sometimes Scandi isn't just white

Sometimes Scandi style is anything but white. Most times it's a lot more. Swedish photographer Anna Danielsson takes us into homes that break those clichés about white and bright must be Scandi. There's brooding and muted, pop art colour pops and warm woods ... and yes there is still white but not the antiseptic, scrubbed within an inch of its life Swedish real estate photograph white. Lived in white. Such rich, detailed shots. So much personality. Those Swedes are still styling whatever colour the room.
