Stalking in Sydney 2

My second apartment today is just a suburb or two away in Waterloo. Co-incidentally (or not) it is also by SJB Architects. A smaller, more intimate space over two levels with a moody palette and beautiful stone floors. The fact that it is a short stroll to the fabulous dining and shopping of the Danks Street precinct makes it even more appealing. Link here while it lasts.

How Ashley Hicks magically transformed his rental apartment

Low ceilings, beige wall-to-wall carpet, plain doors, ugly windows, a grim kitchen....living in a rental isn't easy but designer Ashley Hicks certainly worked magic with his rental apartment. Graphic paint treatment on the walls, a photo transparency covering an ugly window, upholstery nails fancying up doors, paint details on cheap linen roller blinds, pendant lights made from copper and black paint, a handmade screen using a map of London to hide another ugly window, red vinyl and striped webbing used to spruce up a hallway, and the list goes on. Ashley may have spent a ton of time and energy transforming his apartment and customizing every square inch but the result is incredibly unique and dynamic and clearly well worth it.

Monochrome mid mod

He's the master of mixing eras, of taking a limited palette and adding richness and interest through texture and shape. French-born, Spanish-based Serge Castella's take on mid modern is fresh, artistic and just a little quirky. Who could mix an elegant French commode with Roman amphora and still remain true to the mid mod aesthetic? His background in fashion and antiques is obvious in his interior design work. Stylish, chic and totally individual.
