Still stalking

OK I'll fess up. I missed this house on my recent forays into local real estate listings until a fellow stalker sent me a link. Am I glad she did! Favourite Sydney suburb Redfern? Tick. Terrace house renovation? Tick. Great art collection? Tick. Cool mix of old and new? Tick. Polished plaster walls that must feel amazing on a stinking hot day? Tick. Link here while it lasts.

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.

When compromise is no compromise

What do you do when the parents want no colour and no fuss and the kids are talking parakeet hues and bunnies for the bedroom? There may be a compromise but definitely not in the style department. Love this New York City loft by Monique Gibson. A fabulously family home for all.

Quintessentially English

Close your eyes and try to imagine your idea of the quintessentially English country home. Mine has boot rooms and sculleries, flagstones and wood burners, antiques and quirky family treasures. There are bedrooms under the eaves, beams and hopefully a roll top bath. Of course there would be a big kitchen diner with room for a sofa or two and a snug for those chilly nights. The thing is I don't have to close my eyes. I just have to drink in these photos of The Stables by hám interiors. Can't get much more English ... oh maybe a chocolate labrador lying by the fire.

Hudson House

There are two blaring omissions with this amazing house by Brooklyn/Miami based interior designer Jennifer Bunsa. 1) It does not belong to me and 2) I never knew that I really, really needed a ginormous macramé owl in my life. Seriously I need both. Now.
