A tale of two houses

Still real estate stalking. It's an addiction I know. I just a busy body. I like to stick my nose into other people's homes. Today I have two. Both in Paddington, Sydney. The first a small terrace house rather uncluttered for the photo shoot. (Methinks perhaps professionally styled ... nothing wrong with that. It's all about selling houses.) The second a somewhat larger terrace with a faded, well lived in look. Definitely not professionally styled. Oh the clutter! But secretly it's the clutter that does it for me. Makes me want to pick up a dust cloth and explore. Love the kitchen and there is a little library room .... oh what a lovely little room. Links here and here while they last.

Monday blues

It is the start of a new working week. Need some cheering up? Are you feeling blue? No really are you feeling these blues! What a wonderful way to blow away the cobwebs and get stuck into a week of interiors inspiration. Beautiful blues from the portfolio of photographer Julia Hoersch. Gorgeous work!

Primary colours 

Check out this project we received from The Hub Design based in Shoreditch, London: Situated opposite Saint Pancras, the historical Queen Alexandra Mansions in Kings Cross is one of the most unique buildings of its kind. Each flat has its own layout, history and personality. In particular this property - a Bauhaus inspired project in which the Hub Design Limited designed, built, project managed and sourced everything for the property from the ground up. Our challenge was to create a minimal, stylish modern living space for art and design lovers, whilst providing storage solutions necessary in a small one bedroom property. Classic Eames furniture was used in conjunction with custom built shelving unit and a made-to-measure work space. I'm not usually a fan of primary colours but this is kind of fun! It's nice to see designers who aren't afraid of colour and go outside the box.
