Stalking in the gritty city

Urban cool just got smoking hot. I'm stalking in my favourite inner city Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy and there is so much to love. It's a bijou brick worker's terrace with exposed stone walls. The renovation was by one of Australia's leading interior design firms Hecker Guthrie and it's as stylishly gritty and hip as its location. Don't miss the video. The soundtrack is on fleek like the whole sales campaign and it's fun to spot the differences between what are obviously the designers' styled portfolio shots and how the house actually looks. I'd move in in a heart beat. Link here while it lasts.
