It's about time! I've been stalking but not sharing and it has to end. Some of the properties have even sold during the time I've had them bookmarked. As you know I am fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable , can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". It's a bumper offering this week. There is an interior designer's house, a house on Sydney harbour with great bones but the furniture must die (tell me which one you think that one is), a church conversion and a warehouse with just a piano and red roses. Not quite but it may as well be. Speaking of empty buildings I've included a country post office because of the potential. OMG what I could do if I had the money!

Perth's newest boutique hotel, the Alex Hotel, is so cool, so funky, so hipster, so much fun. The interiors by Arent&Pyke are like a breath of fresh air. No stuffy, seen-it-all-before hotel rooms here. No. Young, fresh, fab. I can feel a trip to Western Australia on my horizon if only just to book in for a few days.
I'm stalking the Holy Grail of modernist design. Thurlow House, in the Sydney suburb of Blakehurst, is part of an important collection of early houses by one of Australia’s great architects, Harry Seidler. This untouched gem from 1952 has my mid century heart fluttering. A very sympathetic renovation (the carpet on the stairs must go), fill it full of classic furniture and live your mid century dream. For sale via Modern House.
The idea of a luxury holiday doesn't always have to be about 5 star hotels. The new luxury, especially for families, is escaping to a fabulous beachside home with a view to die and a flair all its own. A real home. Stylish and sophisticated when it needs to be, casually chic with sand between its toes when it doesn't. Beautiful surroundings, great location and quality time with family and friends ... that's the new luxury. Tamarama Beach Pad via Contemporary Hotels.
Simple lines. Clean aesthetics. Fabulous loft space. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then fingers crossed it's somewhere as stylish as this. The Melbourne offices of digital agency Evolution 7 by Hecker Guthrie.
