Caravan

Shipping pallets and containers. An outdoors art space temporarily created for the 2012 Brisbane Festival.  A performance and exhibition space where the building materials were borrowed from sponsors and returned at the end of the festival. Now I'm not suggesting for you to "borrow" pallets to define spaces within your backyard but what a cool idea. Designed by Brisbane architects A-CH (Atelier Chen Hung).

Anonymous Architects

"It’s hard to spot an Anonymous house. And that’s the way we like it."
That is what drew me to Anonymous Architects, based in Los Angeles. Their designs are unfussy, functional and unpretentious. For simple folks who don't like to mess around nor feel the need to show off to their neighbours.

Justin Coit

Justin Coit is a Los Angeles based photographer whose portfolio is a dream. Besides having snapped the mug of many celebrities, his interior photos are fantastic. I'm a fan of high contrast, saturation and brightness, and these elements add alot of energy to these spaces. Gorg!

Stalking small on a grand scale

I can't help it. I'm still stalking. Still stalking Potts Point in Sydney. Still stalking small apartments. Still stalking the urban cool or in this case the urban sophisticated. A wonderfully dark, masculine space by interior designer Darren Palmer. Luxe finishes. Luxe living. Definitely high end in a wonderful art deco building in the heart of the action. Link here while it lasts.

Even the urban cool have sofas

A few days ago I posted an edgy inner city pad by Nicholas Gurney. Comment was made about the lack of a sofa and a TV. Back came the retort that a funky inner city type would be so busy leading a funky inner city life that he wouldn't need a sofa or a TV. Now the apartment is for sale (here) with just a few more photos that we haven't seen already and gee whiz what  do I spy? Sofa, TV and a table and chairs. So was it a case of furniture out for the judging of the Australian Interior Design Awards 2013 or furniture in for the real estate listing photos? Do the urban cool have sofas? ;)
