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.
... it's all black and white. Real estate stalking on a Friday and came across this terrace house in Middle Park, Melbourne. Minimal in interiors, minimal in colour palette and minimal in personal possessions. Is this the way the owner chooses to live or has it been stripped of personal clutter for the sales photo shoot? I'm filing the bathrooms away for when I renovate my own. Not so much for the finishes but how to deal with a period window slap bang in the middle of a wet room wall. Link here while it lasts.
... does my bum look big in this apartment? It took me some time to figure out how these photos fitted in the plans but what I knew straight away was that all those mirrored walls would drive me crazy. They say that mirror increases the sense of space and bounces light around a small room but I'd be forever trying to find the hidden doors and checking for visible panty line. The perfect apartment for a narcissist? Imagine cleaning when the baby starts to pull themselves up the walls to stand. Snot and licks and handprints. Perhaps that is why they are selling. I've been warehouse stalking again. Link here while it lasts.
