Stalking on a Saturday

Or perhaps I should call this one "living above the shop." Quite the change between public and private spaces isn't it? One would never imagine what lurks at the top of the stairs. An amazing old building with an interesting modern addition. It's in Windsor, Melbourne. (Love the view.) I think I would need to tweak a few things if I ever bought it in my virtual life. How about you? Link here while it lasts.

Stalking modern in Melbourne

Pardon me. I'm stalking again. I thought something a little more contemporary this time. A home in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote. With a palette of natural colours and finishes it borrows views and a sense of space from the adjoining parkland. Favourite parts? Both sitting rooms, the transition from inside to out and those "stolen" views. Designed by award-winning architect Robert Simeoni you can find the link here while it lasts.

Stalking a small terrace in Sydney

It's no secret that I have an addiction to period homes. I love the sense of history, the architectural details, the layers of living that these old places bring with them. Add in a leafy, almost overgrown garden and art, art and more art and a real estate agent has me mesmerised like a rabbit in a spotlight. Stalking in Paddington, Sydney is always dangerous for me. I want it all! I'm greedy for little terraces big on real life style just like this little cutie. Link here while it lasts.

The Assembly Hall

A kaleidoscope of colour and a lick of texture brushed across a white canvas. A riot of vintage and artisan, modern and found. Nothing is too precious but everywhere little treasures. The perfect spaces for family and friends and everyday life. Inspiration and creativity and a sense of joy from The Assembly Hall.

Stalking on a Saturday

It's raining here. Raining, raining, raining. In biblical quantities. What better time to plonk myself in front of the computer and real estate stalk? I'm in Bondi, Sydney. A contemporary home by architect Uri Turgeman and interior designer Shellee Gordoun. A series of rooms in open plan stretching either side of a cental garden atrium and leading out to the garden. Casual elegance with interest brought in through finishes and texture. Light, bright, white and ... blue. My imagination is running riot. How would this space look with red or green or black or yellow? A good example of how a neutral base lends itself to painterly strokes of colour to change things up. Link here while it lasts.
