Stalking a little piece of contemporary retro

Built originally in 1973 this Prahran, Melbourne home packs a lot of style on its 155 m² block of land. A 2014 renovation remains true to its 70s vibe but with cleaner, more contemporary lines. I like that the exterior is rather constrained with just a hint of what lies within proclaimed in its garage door. Sometimes real estate stalking makes me jealous, sometimes for the house, sometimes for the contents and sometimes for the art. I'm coveting the dejected Batman in the entrance. Link here while it lasts.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say time and again. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a Saturday then it certainly helps if it's somewhere stylish. I have two offices today, both by Amsterdam-based interior design and branding agency Tank. Lingotto uses suspended timber dowels as visual dividers while Doom & Dickson (fabulous name) has a definite retro vibe.

Personality

It's all about personality. Make a stand and say no to the boring and mundane. Don't be a sheep. Don't follow the crowd. No need to keep up with the Joneses. No. Be yourself and make your home an extension of who you are and what you love. Kensal Rise Factory by London-based Maddus Creative.

Midcentury marvellous

I can't make up my mind what I like better about this apartment. The stellar midcentury furniture collection, the equally impressive art selection or the fact that it is alive with colour and light. I know I'd move in in a heart beat. They don't call me Midcentury Jo for nothing. Fairview from the portfolio of Chris Nguyen of Analog Dialog.

Working on a Saturday

My position stays the same week after week. If you have to drag your sorry arse into work on a Saturday it better be somewhere stylish. After drooling over the retro offices of Moscow-based interior design studio A3 I'm planning on learning Russian.
