Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 9 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

A small one bedroom apartment in an unremarkable 70’s block. (We call them “six packs” in Australia.) A small one bedroom apartment that packs a punch. Clever use of a white base that is layered with colour and vintage finds. A small kitchen in an unexpected spot. Great use of mirror back splash and the fun of astro turf on the balcony. (Although the wide angle lens stretch is a little annoying.) Bijou yes. Pokey no. Big style small space in Armadale, Melbourne. Link here while it lasts.

What a super cool space……I'm in love with those floors.

Cool find!
A few trips to Ikea happening there – student apartment, do you think?
I always think it's a shame the balcony in small flats like this is attached to the bedroom not the living area. The bigger ones sort this out.

Think it would look pokey with any more stuff in it – can't really see much space for the 'stuff' of life. My shabby old stuff would look terrible in there – you'd need to choose stuff for the space. Could also be very cold in winter – potential to be quite sterile, I think. And the photoshopping is very obvious – that Union Jack tray can't make up it's mind what size or shape it is. Grrr.

Looks like it's one of the side or even back flats. Nice neighbourhood, but it's on a busy road. I lived in a converted Art Deco mansion nearby – gorgeous place, but bad electrics and damp and goodness knows what else. Happy memories though! Thanks.

Love the spacious kitchen, the arched doorway and particularly all the surrounding green spaces!

I love this apartment! I could live here. Love all the white and the balcony in the bedroom.

That's definitely punchy – I love the neutral colours of Scandinavian style decor until I see something like this
