Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 29 Jun 2013 by midcenturyjo

Stalking in Zetland in Sydney, a suburb more known for its apartment blocks than its family homes. A double fronted terrace with a sunny courtyard, a sparkling white kitchen and the cutest little girl’s bed tucked up under the eaves. All on only a 240sqm block. Link here while it lasts.

I ‘spot’ a theme

Posted on Fri, 28 Jun 2013 by KiM

I was originally only going to use the first photo below for this post because I REALLY love the space, but then I fell in love with the circle theme going on (especially the huge paper pendant hung low, mimicking the circle in the painted brick). Themes are so fun. Especially when executed so brilliantly and subtly). Again via Kennedy Nolan Architects, photos by Derek Swalwell.

Park Lane house

Posted on Fri, 28 Jun 2013 by KiM

I am SOOOO in love with this house. The mid-century modern vibe interior, the random and quirky exterior and OHHH that outdoor covered hangout nook complete with fireplace. If I could rebuild my house horizontally rather than vertically I’d absolutely use this as inspiration. By Kennedy Nolan Architects, photos by Derek Swalwell.  

Manolo Yllera

Posted on Fri, 28 Jun 2013 by midcenturyjo

Whenever I need inspiration I find myself flicking through our archives and flitting from website to website to remind myself just how amazing are the people and places we feature on Desire to Inspire. Today’s revisit is to Spanish photographer Manolo Yllera. Not just for his take on the stunning interiors he shoots but for his own amazing home and his studios. (You can see more on his website). So as the weekend closes in and I’m contemplating a little rearranging I’m drawn to these images, each a little different, each amazingly beautiful but what I find so inspiring is Manolo’s understanding of positive and negative space. Sometimes it isn’t what is there but what isn’t. Happy weekend everyone!
