Still stalking

I'm stalking another of Melbourne's Victorian era mansions, a confection of a house in the suburb of Coburg. Like yesterday's house its interior has taken a modern turn while still retaining the romance of bygone times (design by Clare Cousins Architects) but whereas yesterday's house was layer upon layer of greige this house is all about colour. "Expressions of interest" means I can't afford it but perhaps you can. Link here while it lasts.

A touch of glamour by Oliver Burns

Everyone needs a little glamour in their homes. In this case it's some crystal, marble and mirror in a kitchen and marble, crystal and gold in a stairwell. Thoughtful luxury as London-based designer Oliver Burns calls it.


Ivanhoe House

Nestling into the slope this split level house by Melbourne-based Technē Architecture + Interior Design sees light filled public spaces rotating off a central dark spine. Family living is bespoke, understated and stylish all the while not distracting from the beautiful bushland surrounds.

A renovated Victorian carriage house in England

I am experiencing some serious heart palpitations over this renovated Victorian carriage house, especially the absolutely gorgeous kitchen. This property was converted into a home in the 1950s but had fallen into disrepair until the new owners purchased it in February 2016 and began a complete renovation, and the result is all kinds of awesome. The middle section of the home houses the open concept kitchen/dining room/living room (16 metres in long, 6 wide, and 4 high). In the remaining parts of the house are two more sitting rooms, six bedrooms, a large utility room and a huge, modern office space that is in the former garage/carriage storage area. O M G this is massive and stunning inside and out. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory, designed by Laura Butler-Madden.

Bachelor pad

Not your ordinary bachelor pad in the Sydney suburb of Queenscliff by Jillian Dinkel Designs. Public areas in the renovated apartment are bright and light with a touch of retro cool while a more moody palette is just right for the bedroom. I'm loving the built-in seating in the small courtyard. Perfect for entertaining.
