Water views

Contemporary home with water views. That's how the real estate ad should go. It would if I was writing it. Real estate stalking the suburbs of Melbourne. A clean contemporary look. A modern home for a modern family. This is one home I think would look great in a magazine shoot. I'm sure a good photographer and stylist could make this hoe look so much more inviting. Link here while it lasts. (Thanks again to my fellow stalker Andrea for the heads up on this one. Her comment? "Nice for a new house.")

Big bright and white


Bold and brash and fun and funky. Colour bouncing off the white walls. Soaring ceilings and solid stone. Inside outside bright side white side. What fun! Perfect summer party house? Maybe ;) Honiton house by Sydney based MCK (Marsh Cashman Koolloos) Architects.

It's hot! I need to cool down

It was over 40°C here today. That's actual not apparent. Hot. Needless to say my heat addled brain turned to day dreams of water. Beach, shower, pool. Cool water and shade, a hint of a breeze. My body may have sat here sweating but my mind flew away to this beautiful pool and pavillion by Lake/Flato Architects. I need little more. Perhaps just a ceiling fan turning softly and a cold drink ... or several.


Punta or getting to the point

Stone and drifts of flowers. Wood and water. Formal and casual. Substantial walls and willowing drapes. The stone vernacular of Uruguayan architecture floats on flowers, touches the earth and provides a stylish hearth and home. Martin Gómez and his architectural studio address the site, caress the landscape and reach inwards to create the perfect home. La Pedrera, La Barra, Punta del Este, Uruguay. (You can see our original post on Martin Gómez Arquitectos here.)

A leafy lovely


I couldn't go today without one more fabulous garden by Eckersley Garden Architecture. How fabulous to sit and sip tea in the morning sun, share a communal platter of food in the dappled shade. Lush and lovely, relaxed and just perfect.
