Stalking old stone in Sydney

Posted on Thu, 30 Aug 2012 by midcenturyjo

A tiny 1840 colonial terrace in Darlinghurst, Sydney. All that wonderful old sandstone. I just want to run my fingers across its rough hewn surface. My love of old houses continues and I always squeal when I find an old beauty when I’m real estate stalking. And the interiors? In my fantasy (there is always a story that I concoct about the unknown sellers) the house is cool bachelor pad. Rough hewn and a little retro with golden brown tones and an intriguing history. The house. I’m talking about the house. The bachelor? Hmmm…… Link here while it lasts.

Good old Darling-it-Hurts – lots of luvvly jubbly old places there.

I'm not sure about the look of that headrest on the bath but I'm thinking it would be sublime to use. The lolling head is always a problem. And baths are always so hard and cold (of necessity I know).

Perfect. I especially love the pressed-metal wall panel in the bathroom – ties the old and the new together with subtle practicality.
