Even the urban cool have sofas

A few days ago I posted an edgy inner city pad by Nicholas Gurney. Comment was made about the lack of a sofa and a TV. Back came the retort that a funky inner city type would be so busy leading a funky inner city life that he wouldn't need a sofa or a TV. Now the apartment is for sale (here) with just a few more photos that we haven't seen already and gee whiz what  do I spy? Sofa, TV and a table and chairs. So was it a case of furniture out for the judging of the Australian Interior Design Awards 2013 or furniture in for the real estate listing photos? Do the urban cool have sofas? ;)

Domenic Alvaro and the Small House

Rising up like a sturdy weed in a pavement crack. A spindly, winding shoot of a building reaching for the sun between the city structures. An ultra-compact concrete vertical house over 3 levels in what was previously a parking space for 2 cars, six by seven metres. And when you have wound your way to the top what is your reward? A perfect small garden with very large view. Small House by Domenic Alvaro.

Behind closed doors

A 27sqm studio apartment in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo. Small in size, modest, low in cost. Big in style, clever spatial solutions. Inner city living for the one person family. Growing in numbers and a growing need for good affordable design. The Studio by Nicholas Gurney, shortlisted for the 2013 Australian Interior Design Awards.

Backyard Room

Think of the possibilities. Home office, studio, exercise room, chill zone, man cave, hell no woman cave! A super stylish box down the back of your yard. It's the Backyard Room. Launched in March this year at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show where it won the sustainability award and the silver award for best garden, Backyard Room is an innovative new offering from the team at Archiblox. I want one for that spot way down the back of my garden. All to my own. Just have to keep it secret from my husband!


Stalking the little one that got away

A little studio apartment with a stylish wall unit/seating combo in Centennial Park. The perfect virtual crash pad for my imaginary shopping trips to Sydney. Someone has already snapped it up though. Sold. Link here while it lasts.
