Stalking leftovers

Hello my name is Jo and I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway and don't even need. 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". This week I've found my usual renovations and extensions including an interesting makeover of a 70s brick bungalow, a tin shed studio in a back yard, a couple of historical properties and of course some killer Sydney water views. Click on the photos to go to the listings while they last. All via realestate.com.au.

Emma Hos update

Scandinavian spaces are perfect for a Friday. Super comfortable and casual and bright with the familiar touches like plants in every corner, white walls, wrinkled sheets, lots of side tables and black accents. The kind of spaces you want to crash in after a long work week. These spaces by interior designer/stylist Emma Hos are definitively worthy. (Find a previous feature of her work here).

Upper West Side Apartment

"Sleek and minimal with a limited colour palette" could be design-speak for "hard and lifeless" but not with this NY apartment by 1100 Architect. Accents of wood and jute with layering of textures create a warm, modern home. Anyone else go weak at the knees for walls of steel and glass windows?

Blending in

When an architect makes an effort to redesign a house that still blends in with its surroundings. Kudos to Toronto architecture firm Johnson Chou for this wonderful project (which maybe can inspire and architect or 2 here in Ottawa). I adore this home inside and out and will be using this as inspiration whenever I get around to doing something with the exterior of my house. (How does a house built in 1940 NEVER have any landscaping done?! It's so embarrassing). And check out a previous feature on this talented firm here
