I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway. Oh well a girl can dream. There is one problem though. I'm fussy. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". A quick six this week including an apartment with a city view that eclipses the interiors, a pink 1929 Spanish Mission house that I'd love to breathe new life into and an Australian take on a Hamptons style home in Melbourne. Click on the photos to go to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
My mother is from Northern Italy and it is at the top of my travel wish list to visit (I was there once, too long ago to remember). When the opportunity does arise, I want to stay RIGHT HERE. This mountain cabin by architect Alfredo Vanotti is one of the most incredible homes I have ever seen - inside and out. A mix of concrete and wood surrounded in stone, with a magnificent view of the Italian Alps....I die. (Photos: Marcello Mariana)
And to my fellow Canadians, HAPPY CANADA DAY!
I am suffering from a case of serious envy right about now. I have plans for a little shed/gazebo situation for my backyard to work/hang out in but there has been no time to execute it yet (husband did just finished a raised garden that looks incredible - more on that as soon as we finish it up). This one by San Diego based interior designer Vanessa Matsalla of Studio Matsalla is absolutely gorgeous! It must be so relaxing working there with an abundance of fresh air and birds chirping....
I have some more European chic interiors for you because I may be a bit obsessed. This time it is the home of Adri & Silvia by Milan-based interior and product designer Pietro Russo. I adore the simplicity of this home which only emphasizes the dreamy architectural details. This designer is even more talented in the products he has crafted, including some beautiful lighting (see photo #5) and the room divider bookshelf in the 4th photo.
