OK, OK I'll stop real estate stalking as soon as I share just one more house. Now this one I could move right into. LOVE the art and the sense of space. It's in Melbourne so it has a fabulous city going for it as well. If only my office looked like that first photo. Dreaming again I guess. Now back to designers, stylists and photographers.

Remember the fashion/accessory/jewellery maxim of removing one piece before you leave the house? It sprang to mind as I landed at these house while real estate stalking. Bold use of colour and interesting art. High end furniture and fabulous finishes. Is it just me though or does this house need to "take a few pieces off"? Perhaps it just highlights how a professional photographer could have us all swooning about this home while a real estate agent just needs to fit it all in. What do you think?
I've popped over the border a few hours south to dream of owning this ridgetop estate in beautiful Byron Bay. Consisting of a main residence and two villas there's plenty of room for all of us to party in style. I'll take the huge old farmhouse any day and those pavilions with that Balinese feel? Great holiday pads don't you think? Beach and rainforest, fabulous restaurants and music festivals, Byron is one of Australia's premier beachside holiday spots. No highrise though just a great boho eco feel in a laid back but very stylish country town.
I wanted to wax lyrical about Australian photographer Amanda McLauchlan's work but I found I couldn't write it better than what was already on her website. "Her images are crafted using natural light and evoke the virtues of her soul; quiet and serene, modern and simple. Passion is reality for Amanda." A truly beautiful portfolio. Don't miss her travel and food books.
Tough week at the office and I'm glad it's over and the weekend is ahead of me. I love that I'm about 14 hours ahead of Kim and my weekend has just begun. (I equally dislike that my weekend is over and she is still enjoying a lazy Sunday!) Now if I only had a spare few million for this Noosa waterfront property. It's only a 2 hour drive from here and an eternity away on my salary. A girl can dream though.
