My second stalking
victim I mean house is another little Victorian terrace this time in the Sydney suburb of Bondi Junction. Here extra space has been added through a modern two storey extension to the rear. Extra light floods in through bi-fold doors and clerestory windows and like our other house there is a striking modern staircase. Link here while it lasts.
Sick of white kitchens? How about doing something a little different and going with a pale mint green? This Utah Craftsman home got an updated, super bright renovated kitchen that is really pretty in this beautiful shade. Another gem of a project by cityhomeCOLLECTIVE.
The original house is heritage listed but the modern day home, while respecting its 19th century roots, reaches into the 21st.
“The extension is in fact highly contemporary with a palette of grey black and white delivered as long, horizontal planes. Stark black and white artworks, black steel framed windows and an abundance of white walls mimic the palette of the heritage portion without mimicking style. The continuation of a loose collection of contemporary and traditional furnishings further ties the two portions.”

“In the same way that a good suit remains in fashion, interiors can be timeless if they are well proportioned, employ good materials, and suit the people they are built for. Functionality, quality and beauty are my long-standing design principles.” – Sarah Davidson Interiors
Timeless, sophisticated, custom yet inviting. My favourite type of house.
A contemporary addition to a grand Victorian house is a moody, sleek and sophisticated cave. But before you think heavy and dark walls of glass draw your eyes to lush garden courtyard spaces while allowing light in. Malvern House by Melbourne-based architectural studio Figureground.
