You know my mantra by now. I'm a fussy real estate stalker. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". It's a mixed bag this week. The last of the Surry Hills bohemian artist's warehouses, a modernist gem and an epic Bondi Beach bedroom view. Click on the images to head to the listings.

Looking for an architect who can take the ugly out of a space and make it marvelous? ARCH angels Architects located in Brighton, UK are well versed on the art of architectural transformations of homes (and new builds of course). I have some before and afters coming up in my next post that are sure to impress, but first, a little sample of this firm's work.
Bright, cheery, light and fun. Not your usual brooding, heavy on the masculine cliché bachelor pad. At 50 sq m open plan living and full height storage make the most of the space while still being cosy and inviting. Garçonnière Marais by Parisian interior designer Tatiana Nicol.
This has got to be the prettiest café I have ever seen. Wanda Café Optimista is located in Madrid and was designed by Parolio. After the recent years, of recession in Madrid, Parolio wanted to design a place that communicates the opposite: projecting vitality, joy, color and a positive outlook on life. The idea is that when you enter Wanda you enter the emotional universe of vacations, summer, Surf and everything positive you feel on these fun days of the year. Inside Wanda it’s always sunny, there is always a good vibe. That description alone would have me stopping in. The pastel colours with pops of neon, all of the really cute patterned pillows and the amazing pattern on the bar make this such a happy place, where you would never want to take your last sip of coffee.
