Old houses modern living

I thought I'd share more amazing Brisbane homes currently on the market. The first is a late 19th century workers cottage in an inner city suburb. A lovingly restored old house with a fabulous 21st century addition. Old houses like this are in conservation areas and maintaining an authentic street presence is paramount. What a funky way to increase space while leaving the heritage house intact.

The second house is an a much sort after well heeled suburb. It's a federation style house probably from the first couple of decades of the 20th century. Here the extensions pay homage to the original building while providing the much coveted outdoor space that Queenslanders must have. We live outdoors almost year round!

David Duncan Livingston

As much as I love David Duncan Livingston's portfolio and admire his amazing talent, it's his bio info that brings a smile to my face.

"In second grade David sold ivy door to door. By fifth grade he was moving furniture around his bedroom and arranging his seaglass collection. In eighth grade he first put a camera to his eye. David now photographs homes, their surrounding landscapes, the people who live in them, those who design them and the things they hold within ...." He had a designer's eye growing up and he still has it!


Amor e locura

I thought I would share another stylish and unusual Australian store. I have a love of vintage and the found. amor e locura, "love and madness" imports the faded beauty of Argentina to the boho streets of Fitzroy Melbourne. Architectural antiques, furniture and collectibles .... love the grandeur, love the sadness, love the reuse, love the name.

A while back I posted about designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz's white NYC apartment. I glanced at his website recently and found many more incredible photos and thought I should do a second post to showcase more of his modern masterpieces. Here are some more of his residential spaces and a few from a hotel and a showhouse.
