Bold and beautiful

A monochromatic palette of black and white with accents of rich cognac provides the starting point for designer Timothy Godbold to create the ultimate bachelor pad at One Hundred Barclay. Iconic vintage pieces like the Soriana sofa by Tobia Scarpa for Cassina and the futuristic Kappa chairs provide that edgy design cred and a sophiticated urban luxury. Bold, chic, masculine.

(Is everyone keeping up with the growing trend of vintage Italian furniture pieces especially from the 70s and 80s? It's killing me.)

Stalking a warehouse penthouse

I'm stalking the heritage MacRobertson building in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. With its "industrial living with a minimalist, contemporary" bones this two floor penthouse apartment is overflowing with artworks, books and life's little treasures. And then there's the rooftop terrace with treetop views over the surrounding suburbs. I could see myself moving in and feeling immediately at home. As is usually the case the video gives you a much better feel of the space. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a concept

I'm in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor's marks ... and I love it. I've included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I'd like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don't dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.

Stalking masculine and minimal in the city

I'm stalking masculine, minimal and a Murphy bed in inner-city Sydney. Thankfully the fold-up bed is only in the guest room. A two bedroom apartment in an Art Deco warehouse building with bespoke joinery and high-spec finishes all within easy walking distance of the centre of one of the world's most vibrant cities? Just might be my definition of the perfect bachelor pad. Link here while it lasts.

A colourful Sydney holiday apartment

If you look closely this Tamarama Beach apartment is actually light, bright and very white but it's the colourful pops of artwork and accessories that amp up that holiday feel. Oh and let's not forget the view. Nothing says Aussie beach getaway more than an endless ocean view and a scurry across hot asphalt to get to the sand on a summer's day. If you want to make today's daydream a reality you can find out more at Contemporary Hotels.
