By now you’ll know that I have a thing for old houses. Give me a home with a little history and character over a modern build any day. It seems obvious that I would like this little cottage in Sydney’s inner east and yes it does tick the boxes for me but… I’m having trouble concentating on the house at all. I’ve been bewitched by the art collection. OMG! What I wouldn’t do to get my grubby, greedy mits on those glorious canvases. The house could be a hovel and I’d still want to move in. Can I buy the collection instead of the house do you think? Link here while it lasts.
This renovation of a 1930s home sympathetically references the original Art Deco features while creating a thoroughly modern home for its art collector owner. Love the play of pink against the predominant black and white palette and, of course, the art. East Hawthorne House by Melbourne-based Meme.
Yes my love affair continues. Just one more apartment by Emma Donnersberg Interiors. Oh so chic, so elegant with a wonderful collection of global artifacts including three Tiwi Island burial poles. Such an amazing collection my eyes can’t settle. They are flitting from treasure to teasure.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s the perfect marriage of old and new, of fabulous art and practical living, of the quest for the ideal home and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. Yes this heritage-listed home in the Brisbane suburb of New Farm by MMO Interiors may represent the perfect design marriage (and my dream home) but, if it was mine, I’d be taking the art in the event of a break up. Actually that’s wrong. I’d want it all.
