First stalking of the year

I love when the real estate market starts to heat up after the holiday break. More houses listed and a greater chance of hitting the design jackpot. If you are a regular reader you will know I have a thing for older houses in inner city suburbs and if they have an architect designed modern extension out back then even better. I'm stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I think it might be love. Exposed old brick, glass transition between heritage and new, slick open-plan living areas with a great connection between in and out. There's even a car lift and I don't know why that excites me but it does. With Sydney house prices we'll never afford it but it's all about the stalking and the gawking. Link here while it lasts.

A charming 1860s loft

I continue to have a soft spot for lofts and this one with classic and feminine touches mixed with vintage industrial pieces make this so perfectly eclectic. And how freaking brilliant - a bank of Ikea cabinets installed console-style with an antique cupboard mixed in. Saving that one in my inspiration folder! By Houston, Texas based FOUND (a partnership between Ruth Davis and Aaron Rambo).

A model apartment

A historical building with soaring windows. Light flooding in to an apartment with exposed brick, reclaimed oak floors and marble. What a wonderful canvas to work with. 60 White Street, a model (display) apartment in New York's TriBeCa area by interior designer Magdalena Keck.

A contemporary blonde brick holiday home

Are you old enough to remember blonde brick? I am. Just the thought of it has me cringing. Many crimes against design sensibility were committed in the 70s in the name of the insipid blocks. Fortunately the 80s saw the popularity of blonde bricks wane, replaced by their chocolate counterparts. (Urgh! Dark brown bricks with tumbled edges ... that's a horror story for another time.) Back to blonde bricks or should that be that blonde bricks are back. Loving this contemporary home with a retro vibe at Sorrento on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. A series of pavilions make this holiday house just perfect for a getaway by yourself or with a crowd, this blonde beauty is by Melbourne-based residential design and construct company InForm.
