Stalking a repeat in Yarraville

You may think you've seen this house before ... and you have but from the architect's portfolio not through the lens of a real estate photographer. Funny how things don't look quite so perfect. The everyday creeps in like wrinkles in the sheets and furniture layouts in long shots that don't quite look as good as a close cropped image. Hell who am I kidding. This house is pretty darn perfect regardless of differences in photos. I'm stalking the Yarraville House by Techné . Link here while it lasts. (Thanks Andrea!)

A country retreat

This Hudson Valley colonial retreat designed by Brooklyn's Workstead is an absolutely stunning, simple country getaway. I am sure returning to city life would be tough after a weekend spent here. (We love their work - 1, 2, 3)

The Studio at Harrods

I recently learned via some googling that Harrods department store has its own team of architects and interior designers that form The Studio at Harrods. Their style (not surprisingly) leans a bit towards traditional but the homes they have designed are so beautiful and this style really suits the landscape. Serene, classy and timeless. It works. 

P.S. Sorry, no pet post today. I'm short on entries again. :(

Shade

The house rides the site like a galleon on a sea of gum trees (or what a least to an Aussie look like eucalyptus trees). You'll find me lazing on the fabulous outdoor area with its shade cloth flapping in the breeze. Casa Tunquén by Chilean design firm CO2 Arquitectos.
