Stalking on a Saturday

I'm stalking an über cool apartment in the inner Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst. A stark black and white palette with shiny, slick surfaces is mellowed by hints of palest blue, raw wood and wicker, softened with linen and wool. Minimalist abstract art covers the walls. A stylish, sophisticated and unexpected mix for this ultimately comfortable take on urban living. Link here while it lasts.

Shadow

It's like a shadow house, a phantom building. There but not there. Starkly minimalist this modern addition to a historic home is cartoon like in its form, its all black walls and roof helping it "disappear". Housing a garage and additional living space it is connected to the existing stone building by a glass walkway allowing for a strong delineation between old and new. Kensington Park Residence by South Australian Proske Architects.

Modern on the water

Sometimes a spectacular view can all but overwhelm any attempt to decorate a room. Either the room pales in comparison or the view and the room fight each other to the death. Definitely not the case in this harbourside home in Sydney by EB Interiors. A palette of moody blues, an emphasis on strong contemporary lines and bespoke joinery provide the stage for the subtle textures and pops of colour from soft furnishings and wallpaper.

Soaking

Oh it's you! Didn't see you there. I was too busy soaking in my bubble bath taking in the view. Love this bathroom by Jeff Trotter Design. Love the herringbone stone floors, the soft green vanities, the rustic texture added by the rug and that too too cute faux bois table.

Stalking scandi industrial

Industrial glamour in the gritty inner city. Concrete, timber, stone and a modern scandi colour palette of greys, blacks and blush pinks. I'm stalking in Redfern, Sydney and the link is here while it lasts.
