Stalking Baroque 'n Roll

A truly heady design mix or is that hedonistic? A little bit baroque, a whole lot OTT and a pinch of kitsch. It's rock and roll, wham bam glam, nightclub meets suburban crash pad. Behind an unassuming St Kilda, Melbourne facade is a three bedroom apartment with identity issues. I'd really want to see this one in the flesh before I passed final judgement as the photography adds to the sense of unreality. Imagine it as a holiday let or a B&B complete with eccentric host. Now that would be cool! Link here while it lasts.

Breaking open the box

Down a lane behind a building that fronts a main road, perched on a small inner city patch, reaching for the sky is a box-like building. Back turned to the outside world it climbs up stairs and slowly unfurls through sliding doors and screens that can be raised to balconies with city glimpses. A perfect inner city pad. A retreat from the hustle and bustle but right in the action. Small house living in big style. Real estate staking in Richmond, Melbourne.Link here while it lasts.

Stalking with a failing memory

I have real estate stalked so much these past few years that it has all become a blur of gorgeous home after gorgeous home. It's a hard job but someone has to do it. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I remember this house the first time round when it was for sale. Or I think I do. I often bookmark houses, excited that I have found them then promptly forget them as I find another and another. The original dropped. The new house offered up on desire to Inspire. The point of all this waffle? I think I may have posted this house in another incarnation ... perhaps. The giveaway ... there are two versions of the living room. Still a wonderful inwardly looking modern home. Link here while it lasts

Mending Wall

Mimicking the ancient rocks of the Blue Mountains is a house of concrete block, timber and stone left to weather. It rises like a monolith or a rocky outcrop from the sheep paddocks providing shelter from the elements, a place to retreat. The fireplace is central to the idea of hearth and home, protection and warmth. "Mending Wall" (from a line in a Frost poem) is by Australian firm BVN Architecture via World Buildings Directory.
