Stalking a fab five

Listing here.

These are not leftovers (although I might do some tweaking). Oh no. I'm stalking five amazing homes in Sydney and Melbourne. I'd move in to all of them in a heart beat. The problem is I can't afford one let alone five. Oh well a girl can dream. One or two you may recognise from previous designer features but it's always interesting to see how the real estate agents and owners pitch them. Two images per house but click on the links to go to the listings for lots of lovely pictures. Via realestate.com.au.

The perfect prescription

The symptoms of Hump Day are a general malaise, increasing tiredness, a reduction in mental agility and profound attitude changes. But I have the perfect prescription to cure your mid week blues. It involves a computer screen, a few minutes stolen from your working day and a daydream about an escape to a Sydney beach house with stunning ocean views. Avalon Lighthouse via Contemporary Hotels.

Stalking on a Saturday

I'm stalking a mid century classic, Bynya House, on the northern beaches of Sydney. Peter Muller, one of Australia’s most highly regarded and innovative architects, designed this Palm Beach house in 1954 for his own family (with subsequent renovations in 2014-2015). With its low slung form, cantilevered eaves and stepped ceiling and roof line, incorporated rock feature and all that glass, it is a wonderful example of the importance of the relationship between building and site. Please someone lend me the money so I can buy it and fill it full of my own mid century classic furniture. (You'll have to lend me the money for the furniture too.) For sale via Modern House. Link here while it lasts.

Coming in from the garden

Last month I got your creative garden juices flowing with a stunning specimen garden by Eckersley Garden Architecture but all along there was the tease of the house beyond. Now it's time to come in from the garden and enjoy the contemporary garden pavilion that is an addition to the original Edwardian building. Minimalist style at its very best with the border between inside and out all but dissolving. Baffle House by Clare Cousins Architects.

Toowong Apartment

Brisbane-based interior design firm Wrightson Stewart's latest project is an extensive interior refurbishment of an apartment in inner-city Toowong. Colour blocking gives the space a fresh, youthful feel with just a hint of 80s retro while the wood on white of the bedroom and bathroom have a scandi energy. Bespoke joinery and pieces from their WSworkshop line mean this once cookie cutter apartment now has its own unique style.
