Stalking monochrome Multiplicity in Melbourne

It's another case of stalking déjà vu. Architecturally designed homes we have featured previously on the blog seem to be hitting the market. Today I'm stalking this Brunswick East house by Melbourne-based architectural studio Multiplicity. If I remember correctly I was quite taken by the storage system in the kitchen. (You can see it in its architect's portfolio life here.) Now it's even more fabulous with its "styling for sale" by inside story, the latest collaboration between Lynda Gardener and Belle Hemming. Love, love, love the Grant Featherstone Numero modular chairs in the lounge area. I'm biased though because I have the same ones. Link for this wonderful heritage cottage and its ultra-modern extension here while it lasts.

Stalking an architect's home in Sydney

Stalking the Sydney suburb of Paddington a house caught my eye. "Don't I know you from somewhere?" I mused. I'm sure I've been inside before. Then I remembered that I had featured this house by Aileen Sage Architects before. I loved it then and I love it now. It's great seeing how the house and the family have matured over the past few years especially the garden. I also like seeing how a real estate agent perceives the property as opposed to the architect's portfolio photos. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking in a family home in Melbourne

Today I'm stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Surrey Hills. Just a simple Edwardian home chock full of period features with a modern open-plan extension and the obligatory pool. Think leadlight windows and fretwork transoms, fireplaces and generously sized rooms. Everything is in a very restrained neutral palette, elegant, refined, period perfection as you would expect from a tastefully restored historic home but then ... welcome to the 21st century family livingin the new addition. The perfect merge of old and new. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking SJB

I'm in Sydney, right on the harbour, stalking another apartment by SJB on the market with a price guide of $5 million. As they say "location, location, location" and I'll add "stylish, stylish, stylish." Light filled with pastel hues, lime-washed timber floor, whimsical, subtle and serene, a sugar coated almond. (You may remember the apartment from this post.) I wonder if the Navy vessel is included in the price? Guess not. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking a warehouse apartment

You can't get much closer to Sydney's CBD than Darlinghurst and That's where I'm stalking today. This is a suburb for the the über cool urbanites and those with deep pockets and I've found them the perfect apartment. No cookie cutter, slap dash, throw it up quick developer's "dream". There's nothing mass produced about the layout and the materials. I'm loving the kitchen and the master bedroom. You?  Link here while it lasts.
