One apartment three ways

One report, three interior stylists, one apartment, three ways. When Sweden's leading real estate brokerage firm Fastighetsbyrån wanted to know what effect styling a home for sale had on the price and how fast it sold they enlisted the aid of design psychologist Sally Augustin. Her report shows that home styling works if done correctly. The buyer must connect consciously and unconsciously with the home. They need to imagine themselves living there, moving right in, daydreaming and scheming how to get it. OK we all say. Fair enough. Nothing new there. That could have been the end of Fastighetsbyrån's research but ... they decided to take it one step further. They took one apartment and let three stylists, Mikael Beckman, Hans Blomquist and Tina Hellberg, mess with our minds and our hearts and make it into their version of our dream home. They put the research in practice. So now there is one apartment three ways and I have one big problem. I can't make up my mind which one I am moving into. They are all tugging at my heart strings.

Perfect porch

Crazy busy. Crazy busy. Frantic, pulling my hair out, stressed. But then there is always this, always here, always peaceful. TsAO & McKOWN via homelife.

Jason Silli Design

Jason Silli is an interior designer from Melbourne, who has worked in the industry for 10 years and this year started his own firm Jason Silli Design. He sent us photos of one of his recently completed projects in Mentone, VIC. It is a family home that was dull and uninspiring. He took it up several notches by added drama, colour, graphics and flair. Before photos to begin, including the former living room turned master suite.  

And the bold results... (more details here)

Calm

Oh I need a little calm in my life at the moment. Frantic is the word that best describes my work load. I'd love a little zen like corner like this. I don't think I'd sit here though. No I'd stand just where the photographer has and muse or perhaps I'd just smile slightly as I rushed past on my way to work! Found in the portfolio of photographer Romain Ricard.

Double dose of Domus Nova - part 1

A crazy eight days of work ahead of me. Annoying when the real world impinges on the blog world isn't it? I'll be short on words and long on inspiration this week. Today I'm escaping into the listings at Domus Nova like this wonderful 2 bedroom apartment for sale in Westgrove, W2 London. If I had the asking price (and I don't) and the owner would leave it just as it is I'd move right in.
