Stalking on a Saturday

A glimpse of a very contemporary addition to the side of the facade is a dead giveaway that this home in Melbourne's Fitzroy North is not what it seems from the street. I'm stalking an Edwardian era red brick home with a industrial modern extension. Love the play of the black steel against the brick and the monumental kitchen island with its rich green tiles and old timber beams. Link here while it lasts.

Old and new in a farmhouse location home

Dream house alert!!! A mix of old and new architecture with modern and vintage furnishings is pretty much my ideal situation. Add in a picturesque country setting and I can have my bags and cats packed up in 5 minutes. This location home outside London is available through Shoot Factory, and I could not be more smitten.

Stalking on a Saturday

With its back wall dating from 1850 and a heritage-listed frangipani tree we barely glimpse, this brand new industrial-inspired residence is rooted in the past (sorry for the pun) but definitely future focused. Recycled materials, cutting edge living. Stark, confronting and fabulous. I'm crushing on the staircase and the play of brick against steel reminiscent of a historic half-timbered house. I'm stalking in Redfern, Sydney and you'll find the link here while it lasts.

Here ...

...cooking up a storm while some of you perch on the barstools telling me stories about great dinners past or help lay the table. What are we playing on the sound system? Something to boom off those walls? Perfect. Tregoning House, Avalon Beach by Sydney-based architect Daniel Raymond.
