La Quinta

Posted on Sun, 21 Apr 2019 by KiM

Because I can’t get Mexico out of my head, I thought I would share a bit of it with you today via this home designed by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados). Located in San Miguel de Allende, this weekend residence is minimal, filled with natural elements and is an absolute dream.

I’m real estate hunting in the oh so upmarket suburb of Point Piper. Built in 1905, this Edwardian mansion has expansive north easterly views across Point Piper and Rose Bay to Manly. I must admit my favourite luxury indulgence in this house is the master bedroom’s bath perched in its own alcove overlooking Sydney Harbour. The photos don’t do this property justice. You can get a better idea of how serenely beautiful it is from the video. Link here while it lasts.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Kokoda Offices by Fiona Lynch.

Stalking 2

Posted on Tue, 2 Apr 2019 by midcenturyjo

Stalking this time in the Melbourne suburb of Albert Park and a development of an old commercial stables building and the Victorian era house at the other end of the block. Between is a modern addition that provides walkways, internal courtyard and kitchen dining with master bedroom above. It’s mix of hero spaces and intimate rooms, weathered old bricks and hard edged stone, glass and steel. The design is by Robson Rak Architects. Link here while it lasts.

Darlinghurst Terrace

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

Take a narrow inner city Sydney terrace house. Strip it to its stone walls and carefully construct a minimalist dream home. A limited colour palette of black and white tempered by sandstone walls and blonde timbers provides the perfect stage for statement furniture pieces and lighting. What could be stark instead is full of beautiful vignettes. Darlinghurst Terrace by Tom Mark Henry.
