Stalking beauty

Posted on Tue, 28 Jun 2011 by midcenturyjo

Beautiful, hermoso, smukke, bell, mooi, belle, schön, όμορφη, bello, vakker, piękny, frumos, красивый, vackra, güzel, belo, 美しい. I think I really need to own this house. I have a love hate relationship with my stalking addiction. I find beauty on a Melbourne street corner and I am smitten but could never buy it. Perhaps I can afford just the outside. Yes just the outside, maybe. Link here while it lasts.

love the outdoor shots..its a beautiful house..thanks for sharing..xx meenal

When I was living in Australia during Uni, I lived just around the corner from there at Robe and Acland!! It's such a beautiful location. I love St. Kilda, dearly.
The stairs in this house are amazing – both the tradition and the modern minimalist ones. Now to find a mere million laying around….

Can anyone please tell me what kind of creeping ivy that is?

tania says:

Is that Rick Eckersly's house? Very like his courtyard and sitting room and the boston ivy.

Hi Amalia,

The creeper on the back wall and the front of the building is Boston Ivy. The pergola is covered with Virginian Creeper.

Yes Tania, this is Rick Eckersley's house and photos by the amazing Derek Swalwell for Vogue Living. You can read the full article on our website.

Thanks for blogging Jo!

Any idea what the name of the dining set (in particular, the chair) is?

Mzy, the dining table is the Platner table from Knoll. The chairs are upholstered Bertoia side chairs, also from Knoll.

Lovely classic pieces!
