Stalking a farmhouse in Texas

I'm real estate stalking a little further afield today. All the way to the Lone Star State. How about this cute as a button 100 year old farmhouse on 8 acres outside of Austin? AND it's in wine country. AND it has a chicken coop and veggie patch. I think you all know I have a thing for country cottages for weekend getaways or even a complete tree change. Big thanks to Nettie for the link. You'll find it for sale here.

Minimalist staircase

Apartment in Paris by École and photography by Xavier Lucas. Lean and mean. Are you keen?

5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Let the outcry re safety, children, drunk in the middle of the night and building code begin ;)

Reader's home - Nusara's new digs

We received this email from Nusara the other day: A little over 2 years ago, I sent you pictures of our rental that we sadly left for a condo my husband & I bought. (We blogged it here). Finally, after blood, sweat and joyful tears, we've gotten our new nest in order. We filled it with the things we love whether they were found, bought, adopted or created by us. They've done a great job with their new digs - the colours, the fun wallpapers, and the coziness is still present from their last home. (More photos and descriptions here). Thanks again Nusara!

British minimalism

From Andy Martin Architects. Light and dark. Black and white. Solid and void. Weight and weightlessness. Day and night. The power of contrast and the beauty of simplicity of line.

Mews 02 is a single residence set in Belsize Park. The owners, a musician and his designer wife, wanted this existing mechanics garage to be converted to a 4 level family home, with the emphasis on the entertaining areas and with the ability to create private compartments over for sleeping.
