Thanks to reader Silje I went real estate stalking in Norway when she sent me a link.
“This house for sale in Oslo caught my eye the other day, partly because the interior was so flippin cool, but mainly because this architectural style is quite rare in Norway. As in: extremely rare. There are only a few of these “garden towns” as they are called, and this house in particular is a part of the oldest garden town in Oslo – Arctander town. It was named after the mayor of Oslo, Sofus Arctander, who commissioned the building of these houses in 1907. Like I said, they are rare and they are never up for sale. Imagine my surprise when I saw this gem from 1911 on sale the other day. Well worth a look!”
And you know what? Silje is right. This house is flippin cool! Link (with lots more photos) while it lasts.
Dramatic use of jewel coloured feature walls, and an eclectic mix of Scandinavian style furniture in pale woods, with quirky accessories and wall art created a cool, inspirational interior scheme for this award winning development in Clapham, South London. Another wonderfully styled apartment by London firm .
What a fun apartment this is! It is a 2 bedroom show apartment that was designed by London interior design and architecture firm . It is quite ‘New York’ themed but for a show apartment, I think it is perfectly suited to attract urban dwellers. White painted brick, lots of graphic elements and industrial touches all add to the modern look.
I love this guest bathroom renovation by Salt Lake City based . So fresh. So bright. Check out more of Shea McGee’s work .

This is what Australians would call the perfect inner city backyard. May not be big but it’s packed full of family fun and guaranteed to bring out the green eyed monster in your friends. Outdoor kitchen, fireplace, AV hub to watch the cricket and portable lounge. Spa, lap pool and a plywood clad bunker with lounges, planter and recessed bar fridge for the wine and beer. There’s a powder room hiding round the back and even room for the trampoline. Bring on summer! By Melbourne-based .
