I’m stalking again. Walking down virtual streets, peering through the virtual nets and basically just being a virtual busy body. I love to see how people live even if it is a striped back and tidied up look to make the real estate listing photos just so. Today’s house in the Melbourne suburb of Armadale sports a late 19th century facade but a very modern rear addition and pool. The link to the listing is here while it lasts.
Contemporary elegance meets curated minimalism. Considered, beautiful in its restraint with white walls and pale floors providing the perfect backdrop for statements of colour and texture. Bondi House by Sydney-based AP Design House.
Simone Haag “likes to think of a house as a blank page, an empty book – boundless, full of possibilities – a story wanting to be written, a tale waiting to be told.” In the case of this Melbourne house she has penned a best seller. It’s a collaboration between stylish fashion director client and designer, the end result being a sensationally chic and fashion forward house. That living room sends shivers up and down my spine and did you notice the gradation in the dining chairs? Sigh!

It was a dated 70s townhouse in inner city Melbourne but after its transformation by architect Lisa Breeze it’s a stylish home with great design chops. The bricks and rough sawn timber remain but with a contemporary look and as for that kitchen … it has my singing the blues in a good way. A fresh, fun take on modern retro.

Interior designer Nuria Alia calls it a Sensory Alarm Clock (it was her design for Casa Decor 2017). A super fun, super sunshiny (is that a word?) place to start your day. Pastel pops and pattern play, shiny metals and sleek velvet all with a nod to Art Deco. What a way to up the energy levels.
