Working on a Saturday

It's like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish and if you're your own boss in your own small business and use coworking spaces then even better! After all it makes little difference complaining to the boss about working conditions if the boss is you. WeWork in Sydney designed by TomMarkHenry.

Carroll Gardens by Tamara Eaton

NYC based designer Tamara Eaton does not follow trends so her interiors are often eclectic and unexpected. This home with its traditional details in a loft-like setting is unpredictable, but then add in Tamara's unique assortment of styles in the decor and you have something that is whimsical yet sophisticated.

Still stalking

Still stalking, still in Fitzroy. Hey I'd never leave if I had my choice. This time it's a warehouse conversion with walls of glass to take in the internal courtyard views. Perhaps a little updating is needed but the overall package is fabulous. If I can't have the bluestone worker's terrace of my earlier post then I guess I'll just have to make do with urban industrial chic. Once again the video sells this house. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking in the gritty city

Urban cool just got smoking hot. I'm stalking in my favourite inner city Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and there is so much to love. It's a bijou brick worker's terrace with exposed stone walls. The renovation was by one of Australia's leading interior design firms Hecker Guthrie and it's as stylishly gritty and hip as its location. Don't miss the video. The soundtrack is on fleek like the whole sales campaign and it's fun to spot the differences between what are obviously the designers' styled portfolio shots and how the house actually looks. I'd move in in a heart beat. Link here while it lasts.

A converted Victorian school

Every once in a while I feature a home that I completely lust over and spend hours redecorating it in my head, and this is one of those. St. Oswald's Place is located in an 1861 converted Victorian school building that was designed by architect Tony Fretton. Approached through a gated arch and across a cobbled courtyard, the house is set back from the road in a secluded pocket backed by Vauxhall City Farm. Entry is through a glass-roofed extension, which connects the main space with a guest annexe / study positioned around a cobbled courtyard garden. The living room is a beautifully curated space with soaring double-height ceiling and towering original windows. A large internal window looks into the mezzanine level above, which has two bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Behind the chimney stack, with its open fireplace, is the galley kitchen with windows that look over the front courtyard. A short corridor beneath the mezzanine leads to a second double-height space of similar proportions and exceptional levels of natural light. A glazed door leads to a verdant communal courtyard, shared by the six flats in the building. Currently for sale for £2.4 via The Modern House
