Mim Design encore

A fusion of modern with old world charm, light and shade, minimalism with maximum impact. This Melbourne based design firm creates a modern glamour with a clean line and a luxe but less vibe. That's how I first described Mim Design's work back in 2009. Nothing much has changed. Except the body of work has exploded. Perhaps a little more layered, a little less minimal. Beautiful, clean lined modern interiors that surprise the senses and embrace modern living to the max.

Stalking a classic

I'm stalking one of the first modern buildings in Australia ... Stanhill, designed by Frederick Romberg and built in 1948. On the third floor of this amazing building, part multi-storied urban living, part modernist monument is a 2 bedroom apartment that has undergone cosmetic changes but still harks back to its design beginnings. Want to live in a piece of history? Link here while it lasts. (Thanks Markus!)

I seem to have a black and white and Swedish photographer theme going on today. This time it's a visual spectacle at the hands of Helén Pe. So lovely.

Stalking closer to home

I've always loved this home. Balanced on a ridge line in Brisbane with some of the best views in the city is a classic Queenslander home. An extension by Brisbane architect Owen Architecture seems to tumble down the steep slope, block stacked on block with references to the historic habit of building boxy little rooms between the soaring timber stumps this house would have once perched on. I cannot tell you the number of times I have travelled this road and strained to see inside. This is a home I have stalked in real life and now it is for sale. I can't even daydream about moving into this one because it would break my heart that I couldn't. The link for the listing is here and you can see more on the architects' website here.
