It's that time of the week. Time to stalk the leftovers, the ones that didn't make the cut. Call me particular, finicky, choosy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or even fab furniture shabby shell. Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's finds include a radical reno that reveals nothing from the facade, a warehouse space with a decidedly un-warehouse decor, a garage that became a house and the usual tag team of terrace houses.

This week has gone by SO FREAKING SLOW, so I could use a pick-me-up to get me through the day. I am pretty sure I need more than some glorious eye candy but I will start with that. These stunners are the creations of Australian photographer Felix Forest. A definite photographer crush happening here. And may we all pay hommage to the sinfully beautiful herringbone hardwood floors in the photo below? *GASP!*
A second look inside the pages of the latest issue of Inside Out. Too cool! Lee Tran again ...
And then there's the late 19th-century rabbiter's cottage that has been rescued from its state as an office and turned into a gorgeous vintage-industrial home by fashion designer Claire Tregoning and cinematographer Tim Tregoning. They renovated it in "little blocks" over nearly three years and it probably didn't hurt that a lot of the features in the home were designed by Claire's brother-in-law, Rory Unite, who works as a furniture designer and artist. That amazing bed was created by Rory out of recycled timber and given a rustic charm with a few paintbrush coats of white. Styling by Nicole Valentine Don and photography by Fiona Galbraith.
Don't forget Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the October Inside Out on Thursday. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia because you can read along on Zinio, Google Play and the Apple Newsstand.
October's issue of Inside Out hits the stands on Thursday and I'm excited. Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us not one but two sneak peeks.
... the home of Table Tonic blogger and shop owner Louise Bell and her architect husband Graeme Bell. It's located on Sydney's northern beaches and is a modernist design by architect Loyal Alexander, who originally lived there. By the time that Graeme came across the home, four families had lived there since. "They were marketing it as a 'knock-it-down-and-build-two', which horrified us," said Graeme Bell. Luckily, his family moved in and saved that from happening. Readers will be able to visit this residence on Wednesday October 29, when it hosts our latest 'Open For Inspection' house tour, as led by editor Claire Bradley and ISCD educator and our panel's style expert Lisa Koehler. Tickets will be available at Moshtix from Thursday. Styling by Jason Grant and photography by Harold David.
One more from the TV show The Block. Michael and Carlene's apartment features warm exposed brick walls, slick kitchen and a generally panned main bathroom, the weak link in an otherwise well resolved space. Link here while it lasts.
