It’s that time of the week again. Stalking leftovers. Lovely homes? Yes … well … er … maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. Fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or the other way around, can’t quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding “yes”. This week I’m drawn to colour, bathtubs and wishbone chairs. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
A striking fusion of form and function, the Kasokudo Bonsai Planter by designer Adrian Magu is as stylish as it gets. The product is an artistic representation of the developer’s interest for everything green and his work in the automotive industry: “Referencing speed forms and manufacturing processes used in transportation design, this piece juxtaposes movement applied to what is usually a static object.” The unconventional shape and elegant black-gray silhouette makes this unconventional bonsai planter fit perfectly in modern interiors with a twist.

frighten greet the trick-or-treaters.
Bold and minimalist, Afillia is a new collection of lamps designed by Alessandro Zambelli for Italian company exnovo. In plant terms, “Afillia” means leafless, though not lifeless, surely an apt image for a collection of luminous essentials and airy voids. According to the designer’s official product description, the collection includes six lighting accessories (three table lamps and three pendant lights). The base or socket ring is in Swiss pine, a premium wood from the Alto Adige mountains, hand-crafted according to the region’s ancient traditions.
Minimal forms and considered finishes. A new modern luxury with house like apartments. Think marble, stone, wood and concrete softened by layers of natural fabrics. These Walsh St apartments in South Yarra, Melbourne are a collaboration between Neometro, MAA Architects and Carr Design Group.

Don’t you sometimes wish you could be a kid again? After seeing this play structure by the office of mcfarlane biggar, I ABSOLUTELY DO! sam + pam is a play structure for kids. The two-metre by two-metre twin structure is made entirely out of 2×3″ spruce-pine-fir protected from the elements with a clear varnish. ‘Sam + Pam’ suggests new forms of play from the premise of doing “much with little”. Inside the slatted three-storey towers are ladders for climbing up to various perches and protected spaces. Kids can clamber through the multiple entrances connected by a rope bridge and monkey bars. Outside one of the towers, a pole slide offers another escape route. (It was built as part of the Playhouse Challenge for charity)
