Brilliant paint ideas

My twin sister found these photos on Sköna hem on our lunch break and I had to post them because I think these are absolutely brilliant ways to achieve high impact looks with a little bit of paint. And into my inspiration folder they go!

My other dream home

I've got another property for you from Domus Nova. And this one is a dream! What is not to love about this place? The only thing I can really comment on negatively are those deflated looking sofas, which looks too much like a separated sectional (pet peeve!!). This place rocks. I love the simple kitchen, the concrete floors, the funky lighting, the artwork (I spot THE perfect vintage portrait), the yard, and OMG THAT HALLWAY 'O BOOKS!!!

In hiding

Talk about hiding your light under a bushel! If turning your back on a busy inner city street and looking inwards is your thing then how about this Surry Hills, Sydney house by Anthony Gill. Minimalist interior doesn't mean minimal style. The original house sits back from the neighboring terraces. Courtyards at either end. Sliding gate entry. It's all about polished concrete, light, clever storage. Love the massive concrete kitchen bench. It's a hard faced house in a tough part of the neighbourhood sitting in the gritty street. Hiding its beauty.

London real estate stalking #2

As promised, here is another Domus Nova property. This time it's a rental, which is probably good news as I'm not sure how many buyers would be tickled pink to discover red carpeting and a bright orange bathroom. I do love how neutral the spaces are with colour brought in through furnishings. Most people do it the other way around. I think this takes far more bravery. Check out that sofa for example. Surely more of an investment than a can of paint.

London real estate stalking #1

The kind folks over at Domus Nova (estate agency extraordinaire) must have sensed how swamped I am these days so they ever so graciously sent over some photos of some of their latest homes for sale. This first one if fantastic for the most part - but I am not loving the sterile kitchen and what's the purpose of 2 dining tables? The distortion thanks to the camera lenses used would certainly have me calling us Domus and asking for an appointment to view in person. I do however adore the bathroom, staircase, wood stove setup and furnishings (helloooooo TWO Papa Bear chairs!!). I'll be posting another home shortly so stay tuned!
