Stalking a live work loft in Amsterdam

I've always fantasized about living in any number of my favourite shops. Just curl up in the display bed after the door have closed for the day. Could you? Would you? Absolutely no problem moving into this Amsterdam loft space (a converted garage) with a stylish atelier at the front and an equally sensational living space at the back. Very public during business hours but a wall of vintage windows can be closed off to provide security if not privacy when needed. 230 sqm of bright, white and light loft for sale here.

A refined bachelor's apartment in New Orleans

Loving this apartment in the New Orleans French Quarter designed by Ty Larkins, perfect for a young bachelor lawyer who happens to be a traditionalist. The client initially asked us to decorate his apartment with antiques and pieces with history. Luckily, we convinced the client he needed to mix in modern furnishings and artwork into the overall design because we believe there is nothing more staid than an old house filled exclusively with old furniture. The resulting environment is traditional space designed with a modern sensibility where French antiques are mixed with just the right dose of modern pieces coupled with a decidedly masculine color palette creating bold contrast and interest.

Understated elegance in a New Jersey home

This Short Hills, New Jersey home is another project by talented designer Michelle Gerson that is mostly toned down in the colour palette (with one exception as you will easily spot below) but again has a bit of an art deco feel. In this home Michelle took more of an understated elegant approach. Still loving it!

Stalking poolside living in Paddington

It's almost de rigueur to have a pool in Australia. Well if not a strict rule then a definite want. The idea of spilling out of an open plan family living/dining/kitchen area to an al fresco entertaining space beside a pool is top of our wish list. My wish list would be complete if there was also a heritage building attached. An inner-city Sydney suburb would sweeten the deal. Something a little like this Paddington house. I don't even have to live in the house. Perhaps they'll let me take up residence in the studio at the end of the garden. Link here while it lasts.
