Antokolsky penthouse

How about a dose of modernism to make you want to de-clutter and enjoy some concrete? The Antokolsky penthouse by Pitsou Kedem Architect is pretty spectacular, and pretty freaking huge at 680 m². So not only can you do laps up and down its massively long corridor, you can then go take a dip in the rooftop pool and enjoy the views of Tel Aviv. My favourite touch is the Ingo Maurer Lucellino lights - a longtime favourite of mine.

Is that a Space Invaders house?

How cool! I already love the modern open plan, the concrete and the white brick, the bright yellow and hot pink accents as well as the pool but what I really, really love are the Space Invader motifs in the brickwork. Crass? No way! Life is too short not to have a sense of humour. Florence House by Perth, West Australia based Klopper & Davis Architects.

Stalking leftovers

By now you know that I am fussy when it comes to my real estate stalking. Fussy, fussy, fussy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's leftovers include an OTT art deco complex with a bathroom of greenest green, a two storey penthouse that is chaotic and classy, a couple of small pools that caught my eye and a 60's iconic house that needs to be saved not bulldozed by developers. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.

Monday getaway

Run away! Run Away! It's Monday. Let's keep the weekend going with a virtual getaway to the Hospedería Convento de La Parra in the Extremadura region of Spain. We could call it a retreat. It is a 17th century convent after all.

"Sorry. You are not going to find a television set here, not even a radio tuner. Only spaces for reading, a table for playing board games, corridors for reflection, cloisters that will bring back to you the smell of orange blossom, lime, wood, rest, peace, water and sun."

Aaaahhh! A heavenly cure for Mondayitis.
