Latest from Cobbold Du Pont

Caroline Cobbold of Cobbold Du Pont Interiors emailed us recently with a peek at some of their latest projects. I blogged their work a couple of times back in 2010 (here and here) and am always a fan of the stunning architecture they have the pleasure of working with, and Parisian style designs they create.

Stalking the old with the new

Today's second real estate stalking finds me pounding the virtual pavements of Armadale, Melbourne. A renovation and extension of a Tudor style period house has caught me eye. From its dark exterior and stylish garden to the sophisticated open plan living. Glass gym in the backyard anyone? Perhaps watching TV in the media room from the pool? I would love to see this home photographed sympathetically. Please, please, pretty please professional real estate photographers in Australia stop with the HDR over tweaked photos. We get it. You want a dramatic effect but it's like bad cosmetic surgery ... fake and unattractive. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking weekenders on the dark side

midcenturyjo@yahoo.com.au Message flagged Wednesday, 7 November 2012 2:03 PM Imagine a little cottage in the country. A weekend retreat. An escape. Do your imaginings turn to nightmares at the thought of chintz and yellow pine, old iron beds and shabby chic armoires? You're a minimalist. You like it clean lined and modern with nary a whiff of dried flowers and old advertising signs, thrifted tat and dust catchers. I have found your perfect tree change getaway. Simple, stylish and with a scarcity of scatter cushions. A small black cottage on acreage with studio accommodation for guests. After all if you dislike clutter that much it might be best to keep your friends a few metres away ;) The first of two real estate stalkings for today. At Wheatsheath, just outside the spa town of Daylesford in Victoria. But you are too late. Someone has just bought it. Link here.

Andrea Chu

Andrea Chu is an amazing photographer whose photos are simple yet powerful. She captures the spirit of each space, whether dark and moody or bright and airy. And I love that she started into the business by stealing her brother's camera one afternoon to capture an afternoon of skateboarding and never returned it. :)
