Stalking Armadale

Hiding behind a prim and proper facade is something just a little out of the box. Several boxes in fact. Cantilevered and almost tumbling down to the pool. A modern extension to an historic home. A home with drama. Stalking expensive boxes in Armadale, Victoria. Link here while it lasts.

Irving's home

Perched above the streets of New York is the home of Irving Diaz-Burg. "The apartment is in a new construction, utilitarian high-rise building by Toll Brothers' located at 110 Third Avenue, with floor to ceiling windows and amounts to a well-considered 850 square feet," writes Irving who works in  architecture as a Project Coordinator and Marketing Manager. It's not hard to see how Irving has honed his fabulous sense of style. "I have been working in high-end architecture and interiors for a number of years.  I was an art history major with a practical background ranging from furniture specification, to whole event planning to assisting project managers on all levels of organization and project actualization.  This has been a great outlet for my creativity, organizational and social skills ..." What a wonderful contemporary apartment Irving! Super stylish living in the Big Apple. And for all the readers who will want to know what and where and how to get their hands on various pieces in the pictures you'll find a comprehensive resource list here. You wouldn't expect anything else from a Project Coordinator ;)

Staffan Tollgard extra

There were more goodies in Staffan Tollgård's portfolio that I had to share. Again, another mix of modern (love the grey hardwood and coordinating kitchen cabinets and stone accent wall) and contemporary (love the mauve colour scheme for the bedroom and the slightly retro feel of the black and white bathroom - my favourite bathroom colour palette).

Staffan Tollgard

This home in Notting Hill designed by British interior design firm Staffan Tollgård is an absolute dream. The architecture (moldings, gorgeous staircase, massive kitchen window) combined with the dramatic modern/contemporary furnishings and eclectic/funky accents (how cool is that wall of vintage cage pendants, and the random dump truck art in the kitchen) makes this one spectacular home that I could move right into and not change a thing - except I'd lose the dead owl, and switch out the light fixture in the living room for something less pretty.
