Maree Homer +1

Three and a half years. Yes three and a half years since I visited Australian photographer Maree Homer's website. (The original post is here.) A lot has certainly happened since the least of which is an overflowing portfolio and her work constantly in Australian shelter magazines. The work has matured. Light is still paramount but now the rooms are havens from the harsh bright light outside. Slashes of light don't cut across spaces. Homes are more appealing because, as most Aussie's will know, being in the cool cocoon of the inside as opposed to the harsh, hot outside is a cultural dreaming. Still an ode to modern Australian life her work captures the spirit of the rooms, the carefree life we love to lead and the slight larrikin attitude that Aussie's have.

The editors of Australian digital magazine Est sent us a sneak peek at their latest edition. In Issue #4 the magazine looks to the Nordic countries for inspiration in a special Scandinavian edition of Est. Go inside the home of Icelandic Interior Designer Rut Kara and Danish homewares maven Tine K. Get to know modern day model turned street style snapper Candice Lake and see inside the home of the original street style photographer Amy Arbus in New York City. Est Issue #4 launches 31 January and I for one can't wait.


Modern terrace stalking

What! Stalking two days in a row? At last the real estate market has woken up from its post Christmas stupor and interesting properties are starting to pop up on website pages. Today's stalking is a Woollahra, Sydney terrace. I love the seamless transition from kitchen to courtyard then on to a separate office space/guest house at the rear. Love the bookcase wall, the lap pool and I think I could just about force myself to drink coffee and read the papers on a Sunday morning under that lovely tree. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking warehouse déjà vu

You've seen this Surry Hills warehouse before. You've "oohed" and "aahed" over it here on the blog. It was shortlisted for the 2011 Australian Interior Design Awards. You saw it here remember? Ah yes! Now you remember. Certainly looks a little different. More lived in. More cluttered. Not so beautifully styled and squeaky new but still the same wonderful bones created by Hare + Klein Interior Design. If like me you wanted to move straight in when you first saw it then you are in luck. It's up for sale. Link here while it lasts. I'd just need to make it a little bit more like it was in the original story ;)

Gregory Mellor

Classic, timeless, completely comfortable and serene. These are words that immediately came to mind when I found the portfolio of interior designer Gregory Mellor. Just the kind of spaces you want to come home to after a hard day's work, and where you want to hang out on weekends with a fire going, a cup of hot chocolate in one hand and your favourite shelter mag in the other (or in Jo's case at the moment, where you sit with a glass of iced tea and a hot shirtless guy - Mr. Mellor perhaps - waving palm fronds at ya).
