Table tennis anyone?

"Why, oh why, have two dining tables so close to each other?" we hear readers lament on occasion on the blog. "It's a bit pretentious." "They will never use them." "It's all for show." Well not in this kitchen. They're for table tennis. (And large dinner parties and for the 14 children they have. Just kidding.) Wonderful kitchen. Wonderful home in Battersea, London via Airspace Locations.

Stalking Albert Einstein

Someone really, really, really likes Albert Einstein. What I really like are the stairs, that floor level window in the living room and the lap pool that stretches from the front yard to the back under the bridge-like entrance hall. I'm stalking in Brighton in Melbourne. Link here while it lasts.

Coveting staircases

I would give anything to have a statement staircase in my home. Something with the wow factor. I'm thinking that the owners of this Point Piper, Sydney home might just be a little greedy. They have two! And a view to die for! And two floors of books! Their dreams made true by Pearse Architects.


The terrace house

Light filled and beautifully bright this terrace house in Woollahra, Sydney is only 3 meters wide. Poppy and Charlotte O’Neil of POCO Designs have used white extensively within the open plan design to stretch the house is the mind's eye. A wall of glass floods both floors with sunlight and blurs the barrier between inside and out. A luxe living area is grounded with greys and warmed with gold and red accents. Contemporary and traditional, sophisticated and warm.

Andy Martin encore

Please don't ask me why it's called the "Beach House" when it sits in west London. Perhaps it's the bright, casual vibe. Lots of bleached timber, pops of colour, walls of glass to let in the light and capture the sea garden view. A family home that is casually stylish, at ease with its Edwardian era heritage and its modern extension. Evocative of being on holiday in the city. The reason doesn't really matter. Beach House by Andy Martin Architects.
