Spoilt for choice

I'm real estate stalking in Surry Hills in Sydney ... again. Honestly I think I should just move into this suburb! Choice of two apartments today, both in the same recently refurbished warehouse. Now which one should I buy. Number 1, a two storey two bed or number 2, another two bed but on one floor? Decisions decisions. Links here and here while they last.

Country kitchens

Two more kitchens from interior designers Nexus. Country kitchens with just a touch of modern. Scrubbed pine and tongue and groove walls. Whitewashed brick and colourful faience plates. Zettel'z and 7 Chairs. What's not to love?

Dreaming of country

A country bolthole is top of my wish list. An old house with vintage treasures and creature comforts to spend my weekends in. Daydreaming and scheming ways to make the move permanent. Entertaining the constant stream of friends that just happen to be coming up to visit. Winding back on the rat race of life but not winding back on style. Interior designer Chelsea Hing read my mind and made my dreams come true. Sadly this Kyneton, Victoria house belongs to someone else. But at least my dreams have form now.

You can see my previous post on Chelsea here and the news is that she has just started blogging!

Stalking two family homes

Two for today. Two family homes that start with similar bone structure and end up with two different results. It's like aging. The first old dear has seen a plastic surgeon, gone under the knife and filled up on botox. Still I wouldn't call it mutton done up as lamb. Or would I? The second home has excepted growing old and tarted up with a little makeup and a lot of attitude but still looks a little tired. Perhaps a visit to a cosmetic clinic is in order? One thing I know for sure is that a "woman of a certain age" needs sympathetic lighting to take a good picture.  Links here and here.
