First stalking of the year

I love when the real estate market starts to heat up after the holiday break. More houses listed and a greater chance of hitting the design jackpot. If you are a regular reader you will know I have a thing for older houses in inner city suburbs and if they have an architect designed modern extension out back then even better. I'm stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I think it might be love. Exposed old brick, glass transition between heritage and new, slick open-plan living areas with a great connection between in and out. There's even a car lift and I don't know why that excites me but it does. With Sydney house prices we'll never afford it but it's all about the stalking and the gawking. Link here while it lasts.

A glorious grand old dame in Brisbane, Australia has had a facelift with contemporary furniture and finishes. Definitely not mutton done up as lamb though. Not at all. The beautiful heritage home now has a bold personality and a fashionable flair. It's all about luxury and lifestyle.

Black & white modern extension

It's what Australian architects seem to do best ... the modern extension to an older home. Open plan, family friendly, perfect for entertaining and that blurring of the boundary between inside and out. Just like this fabulous black and white design from Sydney-based Hancock Architects.

Backyard oasis

Some garden inspiration today. Contemporary landscape design by Melbourne-based Eugene Gilligan. I've chosen a few of my favourite outdoor spaces. With the temperature tipped to reach 41 degrees Celcius (106 Fahrenheit) I'm dreaming of luscious green shade and bubbling fountains ... and definitely a dip in a pool.
