Stalking Redfern

Second stalking for today. A delightful terrace in Redfern in inner city Sydney. You can tell I have a soft spot for the inner suburbs of the harbour city. The house is once again unassuming from the street but bright, fun and fresh inside. Favourites? The exposed brick in the dining room, the bathroom and the view down the staircase. What I really want is a cup of tea at that dining room table ... and a good gossip with the owner. Link here while it lasts.

Wine Republic

It's not a house. It's not somewhere where you would live. (Well you could if wine was your thing.) I don't care. There's something about this liquor store's design that appeals to me. No jokes please about the wine doing the attracting. I love the rough, exposed brick walls, the oversized graphic, the industrial pieces used as display and yes the wine bottle chandelier. Perhaps I could drink enough to make my own. Inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere ... even a room full of wine. Wine Republic by Red Design Group.

Simply put ... a modern extension to an historic home. In reality ... delicious design. The Northcote Residence by Wolveridge Architects, shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards 2014.

Is that a Space Invaders house?

How cool! I already love the modern open plan, the concrete and the white brick, the bright yellow and hot pink accents as well as the pool but what I really, really love are the Space Invader motifs in the brickwork. Crass? No way! Life is too short not to have a sense of humour. Florence House by Perth, West Australia based Klopper & Davis Architects.

Masculine mountain modern in Manhattan

This is the Manhattan apartment of Will Nathan (co-founder of Homepolish, a company that connects interior designers with clients who don't necessarily have massive budgets). Homepolish's other co-founder, Noa Santos, helped him create this homey environment with touches of modern, rustic and masculine elements that work so well against the apartments fabulous features like the brick wall and beamed skylight. I especially love the shelf/rod combo above the bed - awesome in a small space because it eliminates the need for bedside tables (and the rods are just hooked through the shelf brackets).
