Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 16 Dec 2017 by midcenturyjo

You must be sick of me saying it week after week but it still holds true. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a weekend it better be somewhere stylish. Amen. Fjord Helsinki by Studio Joanna Laajisto.

Stalking a dream

Posted on Fri, 8 Dec 2017 by midcenturyjo

I was stalking in the Melbourne recently when I can upon two apartments for sale. The building, the gardens, so beautiful. What a dream… and they are. You see I’m stalking computer generated renderings. Very good renderings I might add.

“Envisioned by architectural developer Orchard Piper, Huntingtower Road offers beautifully proportioned homes in the heart of Armadale. In collaboration with esteemed architects Jolson and landscape architects Myles Baldwin Design, this rare property comprises ten finely detailed homes immersed in greenery.”

Sigh. Now if only they look as good after they are built and sold (don’t choke on the price) and the new owners move in with their own pieces of furniture. For now though I can dream. For sale here and here while they last.

I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Armadale. A renovated Edwardian red brick semi with a modern extension… the type of property that always draws me in. You know me. I can’t resist a heritage facade with a little modern something hidden right behind. Just  a few more pieces of art and a slightly bigger backyard and I’d be happy. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking on a Saturday

A glimpse of a very contemporary addition to the side of the facade is a dead giveaway that this home in Melbourne’s Fitzroy North is not what it seems from the street. I’m stalking an Edwardian era red brick home with a industrial modern extension. Love the play of the black steel against the brick and the monumental kitchen island with its rich green tiles and old timber beams. Link here while it lasts.

I’m stalking masculine, minimal and a Murphy bed in inner-city Sydney. Thankfully the fold-up bed is only in the guest room. A two bedroom apartment in an Art Deco warehouse building with bespoke joinery and high-spec finishes all within easy walking distance of the centre of one of the world’s most vibrant cities? Just might be my definition of the perfect bachelor pad. Link here while it lasts.
