Hello lover!

Posted on Fri, 14 Jan 2011 by midcenturyjo

Is it possible to love a house so much you want to leave your husband and run away to it? If so I may just cheat on Kelvin with furniture designer and maker Mark Tuckey‘s house. I have loved it ever since I first saw it in Inside Out a number of years ago and now I’ve stumbled upon it while real estate stalking. Of course Mark and his family have had a number of houses I would gladly leave my husband for and you can why in his press section. A woman cannot be blamed for losing her heart and head over that bathroom. I’m sure I could never afford it so I better stay where I am and just lust after it. Link to the listing here and Mark’s website here. I need to lie down. My heart is fluttering!

And just a couple more views I lifted from Mark’s website. God I love his furniture as much as the house!



Lazy weekends

Posted on Mon, 3 Jan 2011 by midcenturyjo

Last day of my 3 day New Year’s break and I have scrubbed and painted, weeded and mowed the lawn, entertained friends and started work on Kelvin’s man cave (here). I’m exhausted in a good way and now I am racing to get this post completed before an ugly thunderstorm hits. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a small farmhouse in the country to run away to on weekends? A fireplace, a big eat in kitchen and a pool right off the back deck. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it was this house? Mr Bank Manager any chance of yet another loan? Pretty please?

Which one? Which one? I’m stalking apartments in Sydney (Scott Weston’s deco dream yesterday had me rethinking apartment living.) First up today a 2 bedder in a funky old building, with a spectacular view from the roof (BBQ party anyone?) and a cool fitout. Red Platner anyone?. Inner city chic! (Link here while it lasts.)

The second is a neutral dream. Midcentury classics, the whitest of walls and a chic calm with harbour glimpses. I’d like a glass of wine on a Sunday afternoon on that sofa, a good book and occasionally getting lost in the view. (Link is here.) With Sydney prices being what they are these apartments are most likely out of my price range… hang on I already have a house. Can’t stop a girl stalking though.

I get my new old house keys on Friday. All I have to do is hand over a big bank cheque. Packing is progressing, utilities are being connected and last minute panicking is under control. My house at the moment looks nothing like this one I found stalking real estate sites. I may have an open plan apartment but it is currently jammed full of boxes! Can you imagine living with that view?! I think I definitely need a perfect party patio for summer barbecuing. Link here while it lasts.

Running, worrying, freaking, stalking

I’m running behind with my packing. I’m starting to worry. Actually I’m freaking out. Still got time for stalking though. Melbourne’s inner suburbs are well known for their warehouse and workshop conversions. Here’s one in Richmond. Historic industrial facade (the Richmond Fire Station stables), sleek minimalist interior. Link here while it lasts.
