Stalking a designer’s home

Posted on Fri, 5 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking an unassuming Art Deco home in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick. Unassuming from the outside that is. The interiors have be transformed by interior designer Georgia Ezra into a Moroccan meets boho home packed with style and personality. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking leftovers

Posted on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

OK I admit I’m choosy and hard to please. I’ve been stalking leftovers. You know. Those listings that are not quite right, have bad photos or I need more photos please! House is amazing, furniture is deplorable, styling is bland or maybe I’m just in a bad mood. Can’t quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding “yes”. This week’s finds include a tower apartment which is a little tired but has great bones, a couple of country getaways including an old courthouse and a modernist Australian classic at risk of falling into the hands of developers.

Stalking in Melbourne

Posted on Tue, 25 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo


First up today I’m in the Melbourne suburb of Kew stalking a small Victorian-era end of terrace with traditional brick façade leading into a large, light-filled, modern extention. It’s a combination of history and luxury modern living. The sort of thing that Australian designers do so well. (This house is a collaboration between NTF Architecture and Nexus Designs.) Link here while it lasts.

Want to be my neighbour?

Needs a lot of work. Plus it’s heritage listed. Plus it has to stay that colour pink/salmon. Massive price drop.

I’m stalking an urban oasis in the Sydney suburb of Paddington.  The Victorian-era terrace house has undergone an extensive architecturally designed renovation and extension resulting in a striking and unique home. From its period rooms at the front to open light-filled and cutting edge modern additions behind, from city streetscape to Japanese gardens and 25m lap pool it’s a remarkable home and even though the Sydney real estate market is showing signs of cooling the reserve at auction will be eye-wateringly high for sure. Don’t miss the video. Link here while it lasts.
