Big bright and white

  

Bold and brash and fun and funky. Colour bouncing off the white walls. Soaring ceilings and solid stone. Inside outside bright side white side. What fun! Perfect summer party house? Maybe ;) Honiton house by Sydney based MCK (Marsh Cashman Koolloos) Architects.

Breathtakingly beautiful

No words. Honestly I am struck dumb with awe. Do such places exist? After the wonderful images in the last post of YLAB's latest apartment taken by Jordi Canosa with styling by Daniela Cavestany I went to Sr Canosa's website to drink in more inspiration. Then I found this. Albergo della Civita.  Matera, Italy. UNESCO world heritage listed. The hotel is spread over a number of Sassi or caves, simply furnished. Lovingly restored. You can read more here. Breathtakingly beautiful ... photos and hotel.

Mountain Retreat

Like a cave, rock on rock with primordial forest and majestic mountains. Luxuriously monastic and elegant in its simplicity. Serene yet strong. Raw and masculine. Scree, rock and gravel. Warmth, shelter and style. High country with Lake Wakatipu as view. The Mountain Retreat, Central Otago, Queenstown by New Zealand architectural firm Fearon Hay. Edgy and awe-inspiring.

Love

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I'm packing my bags. I'm home invading. You'll never get me out. This bijou bluestone worker's cottage in Fitzroy, Melbourne is just about perfect. By one of Australia's leading design firms Hecker Guthrie.

Steep stalking

Oh the view! Oh the vertigo! Aside from heart palpitations climbing up to this lovely home and the fact that the family dog will need to be replaced by the family goat it's worth it for the view. I'm real estate stalking in exclusive Palm Beach on the northern beaches of Sydney. Stone and sea and palms. I just want to curl up with a coffee and magazine and be mesmerised as the waves roll in. Link here while it lasts.
