It's no secret that I love these little terrace houses. I love the way that people live their lives in homes that are only a few metres wide. How do they cram in all their "stuff"? Do they look cluttered? Is it necessarily a spartan life or a hoarder's horror? I wouldn't be able to resist stalking this powder blue end of terrace with its perky red door if I was walking past in real life. What's inside? Can I peak through the window? Thank goodness for virtual stalking! Come on in. Let's look around. The link for this Surry Hills, Sydney home is here while it lasts.
There should be a law against working on a weekend but if you do have to drag yourself kicking and screaming into the office how about this one. Light, bright, modern lines and an uplifting palette of cool blues and warm wood tones. Case Meallin Office by Melbourne based Mim Design.
A modern take on tradition. Antonio Martins' master bedroom for the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase pays homage to his Portuguese heritage but this is no dusty old museum piece. Hand painted, oversized blue and white tiles jumble across the walls while the show stopper is an 18th century rosewood bed. Showcase rooms are always over the top. They push the limit, shock or overwhelm. They are part art installation, part interior design on steroids but they are also great sources of inspiration. The crisp blue and white, the play of oversize images cut and pasted. Did you notice the old letters in the acrylic boxes? The play of the jungle of green against the blue?
