Entries in Australia (1614)
Built originally in 1973 this Prahran, Melbourne home packs a lot of style on its 155 m² block of land. A 2014 renovation remains true to its 70s vibe but with cleaner, more contemporary lines. I like that the exterior is rather constrained with just a hint of what lies within proclaimed in its garage door. Sometimes real estate stalking makes me jealous, sometimes for the house, sometimes for the contents and sometimes for the art. I'm coveting the dejected Batman in the entrance. Link here while it lasts.
So busy! So busy! Forgive me but I'm running out the door. I do have time, however, for a quick six of stalking leftovers. You know, 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've found a well loved but slightly dated beach house, an OTT apartment (have a feeling I may have posted this a few years back) and a bedroom under the stairs.

Crisp, contemporary lines in classic black and white. A modern kitchen in classic black and white with a hint of the tradition in the bay window and shutters. I often overlook those little socks on bentwood chairs and stools but don't they pop in this space. PRK Residence in Melbourne by Biasol: Design Studio.
Someone yesterday left a comment that it seems just about EVERY post highlights work that showcases only white walls and themes. I would like to prove this person wrong with this post of spaces by Australian interior designer Cameron Kimber. Only featuring a few white walls. "Three words dominate my designs: comfort, relaxation, and elegance. My aim is that every room in the house has an over-all look and feel of comfort and relaxation with certain panache - a touch of the unexpected but always being very polished."
