Stalking in Sydney 1

Today I’m stalking two apartments in Sydney. The first, in the suburb of Alexandria, is in an award-winning block designed by SJB Architects. Quite honestly I want to move right in but only if they throw the furniture and art in as well 😉 Love the detail in the countertop and splashback in the kitchen, love how there is a cupboard for everything and how the master bedroom opens right up to the terrace. Now I just have to find the $1.6 million. Link here while it lasts.

Maison Bergdorf

Part cuckoo clock kitsch, part hipster cool all wrapped up in a historic Holzchalet in Interlaken Switzerland, Maison Bergdorf is the perfect guesthouse for our weekend virtual getaway. With 8 bedrooms, 3 parlours, fireplace and verandahs we can rent the entire house. Now whether to relax and do nothing, put on the hiking boots and head into the great outdoors or wind our way along Interlaken’s Straßen. Time to brush up on my schoolgirl German.

Stalking artist David Bromley’s house … again

Australian artist David Bromley is a serial house owner or should that be home seller. Whether inner city or out in the country it’s not too hard to spot a home with the Bromley touch. You might remember his Byron Bay house I stalked here. Today I’m stalking his Hepburn Springs country shack and it has all the Bromley hallmarks, the outstanding art collection, quirky one off pieces and statement bathrooms. If you want it though you’re too late. It just sold. Link here while it lasts.

Soaking in the view

A magical house in a magical spot in the magical land of New Zealand. Pardon me if I stay on the deck while you pop over to LTD Architectural Design Studio to see the rest of the house. Such a clever transformation from deck to dining to twin tubs for twin soaking … soaking in the water and soaking in the view. (I’m assuming the tubs are hand or hose filled with simple drainage of the grey water into the garden. Now where can I incorporate this into my house?)

Envy

Sometimes I look at a home and my first thought isn’t «oh it’s beautiful,» not even a simple «wow». No sometimes my green eyed monster stirs and I mutter «lucky bastards». Facade, pool and terrace on Shelter Island by New York-based Andre Tchelistcheff Architects.

Courtyard Cottage

This 3 bedroom house in central Flinders in Victoria was designed for a young family by Wolveridge Architects. The simple clean lines of the facade are matched by the interiors where a series of rooms are connected to each other through cut out views and slat screens. Changes of level, up or down a few steps also delineate the simple spaces, while a central courtyard with fireplace provides a sheltered outdoor room. Understated and simply stylish.

Kew Penthouse by 2LG Studio

Their clients were open to their bold and colourful choices so 2LG Studio (that’s 2 Lovely Gays) started with a dramatic entry then burst out into a bright open plan living dining and kitchen area. There are Art Deco riffs to this renovation of a 90s bland and boring penthouse but the final design is edgy and fashion forward.
