It's Friyay!

Friday at last, the end of the working week and I couldn't think of a better place to kick off my shoes, collapse on the couch and indulge in a chilled wine or two than this fabulous courtyard by Marylou Sobel. The rest of the Rose Bay, Sydney house is pretty special too but you'll have to head over to the website to check it out. Then come back and join me in a drink.

Hump day holiday - part 1

It's Wednesday, hump day, the working week half done but still the promise of the weekend is just out of reach. If we can't escape our everyday humdrum then perhaps we can take a virtual getaway to this simple but oh so stylish holiday home in the sleepy waterside hamlet of Patonga, north of Sydney. Nothing to do but sit back and relax, perhaps a dip in the river followed by a drink on the verandah. It's about wet swimmers and tyre swings, old boats and the hum of summer insects, good books and good friends. Nothing precious except the memories and the objects d'art strewn about. The dream can be real though. Noojee is available for holiday let via Contemporary Hotels.

Stalking leftovers in the city

Still stalking but in an urban setting. Styill picky. Still finding leftovers.  Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". From warehouses and lofts to extensions to old houses and mansions. Even a house with a devil's tail. Strange. Very strange. Click on the photos to go to the listings. All via Domain.

Stalking waterside leftovers

Call me fussy. Call me picky. I have a problem. (Well quite a few if truth be told.) I real estate stalk for the prefect property but rarely find it. I do find lots of leftovers. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I've taken a liking to waterside property. Beachside, harbourside, water views, from shack to mansion including one of Australia's most spectacular and unusual homes in the middle of nowhere. Click on the photos to go to the listings.

Indoors and out

In Australia we love to blur the line between indoors and out. Honestly I believe if it was possible we'd live in a house with no walls. Not very practical so the next best thing is a seamless transition from inside living to out. I love this house in Clovelly, Sydney by The Designory. A relaxed sophistication with a neutral palette playing off against the bright blue of the pool.
