Stalking in neutral territory

Posted on Mon, 12 Apr 2010 by midcenturyjo

Two facades two very different houses. Both with a neutral colour story, both with the warmth of timber balanced by stone. I’ve been stalking again but I can’t make up my mind which one I like more. I love the period features of the second home, the warren of rooms but I love the retro modern vibe of the first. Exposed trusses, rich plank walls, clean modern lines. Dilemma isn’t it! Fortunately I can afford neither. Phew! Links here and here while they last.

usually not a fan of exposed beams, but like the way it looks in these photos.

so jealous of the aussie inside/outside room situation.

I prefer the first one. I would have to re-arrange the furniture though. That fire looks kinda lonesome and I fear that the barcelona daybed might melt. LOL.

Jo, your real estate stalking is beginning to make me think that all Australians decorate beautifully.

oregonbird says:

Wow, and usually it’s so easy to choose! I think these two are so evenly matched that it would be the surrounding neighborhood that would tip the balance.

Of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t have an opinion! Because that would never happen. The 2nd choice is a little too sahib for me — the more modern vibe, and the wider options for furniture choice and placement, give the open-beam house an edge.
