Stalking in Western Australia

I've crossed the whole continent of Australia and ended up in the west. I'm real estate stalking in West Leederville, Perth, Western Australia. An ultra modern and ultra stylish extension to a period cottage. How clever to replace the lost garden space gobbled up by the increased size of the house with a roof terrace. That's where you'd find me of an early evening, taking the the breezes and a glass or two of bubbly.  Link here while it lasts.

Warehouse stalking

I'm stalking an apartment in Fitzroy's iconic MacRobertson building. Can Melbourne living get any more hip? The listing photographs, though good, do not reveal the true beauty of this space ... the light. For that make sure you watch the video. Link here while it lasts.

Inside Out's Colour issue

My monthly email from Inside Out magazine's Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam landed in my inbox and I got colour bombed! It's time for their April Colour issue with its two covers and promises to be a rainbow kaleidoscope of fun interiors.

There's one unapologetically vibrant home that I think you'll love ... It belongs to stylist, retailer and international pilot LeeAnn Yare, and her home is an express trip through a memorable world of colour. (I love that she waited until her husband Glen went away surfing before setting out to paint the living area black – seize the day, indeed!) A leftover wallpaper roll gets a second life as bright harlequin-style patterns multiplying across her kitchen island bench, while even her children's bathroom is decorated with Florence Broadhurst motifs. My favourite example of her wonderfully unreformed love of decoration is her office space, where the a vintage-looking carpet is cut into a cowhide shape and her walls have rejected anything resembling a blank space – the surfaces are covered in stretches and patchworks of wallpaper – she says it's like working inside a gigantic moodboard! LeeAnn styled the story and it was photographed by Larnie Nicolson

Wow! Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

Built from recycled materials and designed to accommodate the owners' love of warehouse living the Recycled House in Perth, Western Australia is by Etica Studio. While the design takes its reference from the surrounding art deco buildings the result is contemporary and stylish open plan living with sustainability in mind.

Stalking 2

A 70sqm apartment in an old house in Potts Point, Sydney. I'd love to see this one in real life. I'm sure the photos don't do its personality justice. I want to sit on the quirky balcony with the owner watching the world go by. I'd also love to see the bedroom and no, that's not a chat up line. Link here while it lasts.
