Home is where the art is

Climb the stairs from the bluestone lane way in Richmond, Melbourne. Certainly can't miss the street number. From the ground floor all the way up to the heated pool on the third this modern townhouse is a great example of contemporary inner city style. What would normally leave me screaming for more ... more personality, more layering, more sympathetic photos ... is saved  by what I always love in a home ... more art. Although I am suspicious that this is styled for sale and not an actual home (no fridge in the kitchen) I'm sure we can figure something else to keep the drinks cold when we party on the roof during the open for inspections ;) Link here while it lasts.

Clifton Beach

Beachside living has never been so glamorous. ANTONI ASSOCIATES, the Interior Design and Décor division of the South African architectural firm SAOTA, have created a white and white interior that is sophisticated and luxurious with classically elegant overtones yet breaks out to an amazing al fresco entertaining area that is the signature of both these firms. A glass walled double void connects the upper and lower flows while providing a stunning backdrop to the study's fireplace. White hot elegance on a hot white beach.

Stalking for hours

Hooray! Squarespace is working again. For a few hours there I watched a circle go round and round and round while the blog didn't load. Not anymore. It's time to stalk a modern home in Kew, Melbourne. I've been stalking it for hours ... and hours ... and hours. Now it's your turn. A little bit brutalist with hard concrete surfaces but softened with rugs and art and furniture. Soaring ceilings and cosy spots. Love the backyard too. Once again a great campaign by the real estate agents Marshall White including a video that sells the house even better than the photos. Link here while it lasts.

Arthur Casas

An overdose of exceptional architecture with today's firm. São Paulo and New York based Studio Arthur Casas draws inspiration from Brazil's history of modernist design, takes a considered approach to the environment and a holistic approach to the many layers of their designs from furniture to urban planning. It's cosmopolitan, contemporary and just a little sexy. It was hard to narrow down which of the projects to feature. Finally I chose the Qunita Da Baroness house in São Paulo. I think you will understand why.
