Louvers

The garden is a stylish inner city oasis of grasses, climbers and exposed brick. And then you notice that the back gate/wall is made of adjustable louvers. Clever! Parkville garden by Eckersley Garden Architecture.

Still stalking

OK I'll fess up. I missed this house on my recent forays into local real estate listings until a fellow stalker sent me a link. Am I glad she did! Favourite Sydney suburb Redfern? Tick. Terrace house renovation? Tick. Great art collection? Tick. Cool mix of old and new? Tick. Polished plaster walls that must feel amazing on a stinking hot day? Tick. Link here while it lasts.

First stalking of the year

I love when the real estate market starts to heat up after the holiday break. More houses listed and a greater chance of hitting the design jackpot. If you are a regular reader you will know I have a thing for older houses in inner city suburbs and if they have an architect designed modern extension out back then even better. I'm stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I think it might be love. Exposed old brick, glass transition between heritage and new, slick open-plan living areas with a great connection between in and out. There's even a car lift and I don't know why that excites me but it does. With Sydney house prices we'll never afford it but it's all about the stalking and the gawking. Link here while it lasts.

Shades of grey

Breathtaking

A glorious grand old dame in Brisbane, Australia has had a facelift with contemporary furniture and finishes. Definitely not mutton done up as lamb though. Not at all. The beautiful heritage home now has a bold personality and a fashionable flair. It's all about luxury and lifestyle.
