Stalking South Yarra

I'm in Sydney for the trade fairs and I'm stalking in Melbourne. I could have arranged that a little. Perhaps I could have made it to an open for inspection if I had chosen a Sydney home. No instead I am in South Yarra in my virtual world. Pity I can't see this one in the flesh. So much is promised in the photos, so much unseen. A little snooping in person would be the only thing that could satisfy me. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking modern in Manly

A contemporary home of plywood, fibre cement and polished concrete by Sydney architects Watershed Design. Multiple living areas which continue out to poolside while bedrooms are on the upper level with leafy views. Passive solar design and consideration of cross ventilation aid cooling and heating but for all its green credentials it is the stunning modern design that impresses. Stalking moments from many Beach in Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

On the ceiling

Don't let the white on white with gold accents fool you as you move through this Sydney house. A splash of colour on the front door, dramatic wallpaper in another room, cleverly patterned tile in the powder room give you just a hint of the riot of colour and wallpaper that awaits when you climb the stairs or venture out to the pool cabana. Interior designer Greg Natale takes it to another level with his bold pattern clashes, papered ceilings and bathroom tiling. A glam house, a wham house! Love the striped wallpaper down by the pool? Did the purple chevron paper in the Adore magazine post (the room complete with David Bowie and tufting) tickle your fancy? Both wallpapers are from Greg's new stripe range for Porter's Paints. Hollywood Regency meets retro meets rock star glam. Mix it up anyway you want.

Hawthorn House

Melbourne based AM. Architecture creates buildings of their time and yet timeless. There is a calmness and a simple presence to their work. Form and functional not flashy and fake. That doesn't mean drab and cookie cutter either. This Hawthorn house is a case point. The existing Victorian era home was restored and freed from generations of fragmented renovations while the new extension took the house into the 21st century and provided a focus for open plan family living with a strong connection to the outdoors. Love the strong linear connection between the walk in pantry, kitchen bench that transforms into dining table.
