Stalking on a Saturday

Walking past this building might tweak your curiosity but with its high castellated walls and frosted glass you would never catch a glimpse of what is inside. A business perhaps. Offices maybe. You would never suspect the spectacular 4 level home that lies behind its pale grey walls. I'm real estate stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I'm scheming and dreaming as to how I could ever raise the millions of dollars to buy this spectacular house. From its sun wells and indoor outdoor living filling white walled rooms with glowing light, to the stunning staircase winding sinuously higher, to the master suite with Ken Done painting above the bed and fire place on its own terrace to the upper level with its panoramic iconic Sydney views this is one house I would love to see in person because I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. The renovation design is by X.PACE and you can see their photos of it here. Someone in Sydney please attend an open house and let us all know how fabulous it really is. Link here while it lasts.

Rolies + Dubois architecten

Rolies + Dubois architecten are based in Antwerp, Belgium and they make magic happen with their minimalist, modern designs. I am especially smitten with the loft in the first of this selection of photos. I would just add about 100 plants and my cat herd and call it home. And the pool house in the last few photos is simple, dark and all you really need.

Beachy pink

Think beach house think white painted walls and accents of blue and sea green. Perhaps that should be pink or melon or citrus green. This modern family holiday home takes a fresh look at the beach theme with its hot fruit flavoured colour hits. Light, bright and stylishly relaxed. Just what you want for your vacation retreat by the sea. Cabana com Arte in Comporta, Portugal by Lisbon-based architectural and interior design studio Sa Aranha & Vasconcelos.

Brazilian beauty

Sitting proudly on the rise with its face turned to the sun is the striking Quinta da Baroneza House by São Paulo-based Candida Tabet Arquitetura. Massive spans and a play of horizontal against vertical elements characterise the design.  Sun kissed, open and generous. A true Brazilian beauty.

Backyard bliss

Is it obvious that I'm collecting backyard inspiration? Hence my obsession with Sydney landscape architectural firm Secret Gardens? We're planning on doing some work to tame our jungle of a garden into something sophisticated, stylish, with outdoor "rooms". If only my place could be as stunning as this Coogee space. Definitely backyard bliss.
