In my backyard is a detached garage. It is tilting to one side and is a dumping ground for all sorts of crap. And we can't even fit our car in it. I would give ANYTHING to turn it into something this incredible. This backyard writer's studio was created from the conversion of a 100 sq ft garage. WHOA.

A beach house on stilts. Impeccably designed stairs with storage. A book lover's dream. This beautiful home is creation of Australian architect Luigi Rosselli. Behind the white picket fence on the front street, a circular stair leads to a relaxed timber veranda , ultramarine weatherboards and the original white timber windows make for a breezy, summery house. Bleached interiors reverberate with crisp and clear classical violin practices and hold a myriad of books encased in every wall stud and recess. At the back of the house, facing into a small tropical garden dense with palms and ferns, there is a garden room with a massive sliding shutter that can be secured, and protects the fully furnished room when no one is at home. The stair takes position centre stage in the house, supported by a solid stud wall filled with bookshelves and bathed in natural light.
I found another apartment for sale on Lagerlings that I had to share. This one is spunky and fun in a fairly small footprint (63 m²). It consists of basically 2 rooms - a combined kitchen/dining room/living room and a bedroom. Some photography framed and hung along with a gallery wall add some drama to the walls and the floor to ceiling shelving in the dining room is a great storage solution and also adds some architectural interest to the space. A glamorous bedroom with stripes, satin curtains and faux fur round off the drama. (And I'm guessing the homeowner found a really awesome sale on Kartell Bourgie lamps).
