What’s that? Am I stalking the supernatural? A fleeting shadow? A ghostly apparition? A stencil on the wall? A cute and clever touch to a very narrow side passageway where not much will grow but a bare block wall is just a little too stark. A modern extension to an historic terrace in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. Link while it lasts.
I can’t help it. I’m still stalking. Still stalking Potts Point in Sydney. Still stalking small apartments. Still stalking the urban cool or in this case the urban sophisticated. A wonderfully dark, masculine space by interior designer . Luxe finishes. Luxe living. Definitely high end in a wonderful art deco building in the heart of the action. Link while it lasts.
A few days ago I posted an edgy inner city pad by . Comment was made about the lack of a sofa and a TV. Back came the retort that a funky inner city type would be so busy leading a funky inner city life that he wouldn’t need a sofa or a TV. Now the apartment is for sale () with just a few more photos that we haven’t seen already and gee whiz what do I spy? Sofa, TV and a table and chairs. So was it a case of furniture out for the judging of the or furniture in for the real estate listing photos? Do the urban cool have sofas? 😉
I like my brick old and tumbled and recycled and on the floor. I would sell my first born, if I had one, for a warehouse space like this where the brick was underfoot, heavy old beams above and walls of glass to let in the light. I would definitely have to tweak the furniture, make the persian rugs larger 9 (and maybe moroccan?), action some large art and change the doona cover(!) but the space itself? Yummy. Stalking beautiful old brick floors in Annandale, Sydney. Link while it lasts.
I’m stalking another wonderful example of the imperfectly perfect or is that the perfectly imperfect? All I know is the location is perfect, Avalon in the Northern Beaches/Pittwater area of Sydney. The house is a perfect little shack. A little shabby but as stylish and chic as a shack could ever want to be. And the view from the deck is… sigh… perfect. Please someone buy it and keep it just as it is. It’s being sold as a development site (it will no doubt have a ridicously high reserve price) but in the perfect world of my dreams this little shack will be bought by my best friend who will let me use it any weekend I like. Link while it lasts.
