Stalking leftovers

Hello my name is Jo and I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway. Oh well a girl can dream. There is one problem though. I'm fussy. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I seem to be stuck in inner-city Sydney's terraces and apartments. Not that that is at all onerous. Click on the photos to go to the listings while they last. All via realestate.com.au.

Glamorous Galah

"A forceful feminine approach was counterbalanced through the array of exquisite furniture & soft furnishings used with a striking sense of personality." 

Hollywood Regency with a high end 80s vibe. A rich mix of pinks and burgundies played against black and grey. Brass and stone and feathers. What else could your glam heart desire? St. Ives Residence by Sydney-based interior design firm Designers in the City.

(A Galah, in case you do not know, is a beautiful grey and pink parrot native to Australia. If you look closely you can see a painting of one hanging beside the fireplace.)

Here is a detail of the dining area. As you can see it's a beautiful ode to pared-back style. Styling by Claire Delmar. Photography by Prue Ruscoe.
