It's that time of the week again. Stalking leftovers. Lovely homes? Yes ... well ... er ... maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. Fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". It might even be something as simple as a cool staircase. This week I seem to have got stuck in Sydney with just a short side trip to Melbourne but you'll find a designer's apartment (not really a leftover), an apartment more about the view and the beach than the space itself and another that is probably just good CGI because no one has an apartment with that much cool stuff. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
Happy Friday folks! I have the day off today so I spent the morning getting my hair did, and now I am about to tackle more painting of my living room (a couple of sneak peaks are on Instagram). So I will leave you with some really pretty interiors by Anna Burke. She is all about a blank white canvas, with lots of gorgeous colours, patterns and textures to add visual interest. The result are spaces that are a bit feminine, and a lot fabulous.
One of our readers, Missy, recently had her flat in Makati, Philippines made over and she shared some photos of the transformation with us. With the help of her designer friend Richard and a budget of about $8000 (US), the apartment was transformed with lots of vintage pieces and some from Ikea. The before photos are a bit scary...
And here are the after photos. Now cosy and chic, Missy's flat is a space she can be proud to call her own. Great job Missy!
Since we seem to be on a roll with commercial spaces today, here is another one that was sent to us recently by G-sign, a small design studio in Moscow that specializes in branding and commercial design. This restaurant called Funny Cabany is so cool - I adore the centre tiled cube (the kitchen?), the use of reclaimed wood and industrial light fixtures, and OHHH those brown leather chairs!
