Hi folks! I am back from Vegas, unfortunately. :) We had a blast and really should have planned to stay a bit longer. We did alot of shopping but not as much sight-seeing as I would have liked. My sister's wedding was fantastic, and I am so grateful to her and her new husband for deciding to get married somewhere warm, well, at least warmer than here in Ottawa. So I am back, and I missed my cats, the blog and all of you. I did however come back with a very irritating sore throat which I hope I can get to disappear with lots of meds. In any event, I'd like to share some photos from one of my favourite photographers from the late Domino magaine, Melanie Acevedo. I believe we've featured many of these photos here before in random posts but Melanie's photos are so fantastic she should have her own dedicated post.
I thought after Kim's last post on a loft conversion that I just had to share this unique building for sale in Melbourne. I want to live here! I'm already moving out the current occupant's furniture (not quite my cup of tea) and imagining where all my things would go. As it is so large there would be a home for ALL the "junk" I own. Maybe I'd need to buy more. The Distillery Tower, circa 1862, is six levels plus a spectacular rooftop deck providing a 360º view of the city. Please, please I want to live here. I'd have to barrack for the Collingwood football team though .... hmmmm there has to be a down side to everything ;)
I was back on Location Partnership checking for more funky pads (since this one was such a hit), and I came across another amazing space - a "loft conversion with many original features and sleek interior. The property compromises cast iron radiators, Victorian porcelain brickwork, old de-commissioned lift and exposed wooden beams". WOW. This loft is huge and I could cram it with so much stuff it's giving me heart palpitations. The potential is astronomical, although the current residents have done not too bad a job doing it up.
When the wind and waves roll in from Antarctica a beach shack needs to be cosy and warm. This minimalist modern concrete and timber bunker may not spring to mind as your typical beach abode but when inclement weather is chilling your bones on the southern coastline of Australia you'll be toasty warm inside.
