This blog is my *virtual magazine* of stunning homes in Australia currently for sale. The homes are not necessarily perfect (like in a magazine shoot) so you need to forgive some obvious mistakes, and just enjoy seeing how others live, perhaps even take some inspiration from here n' there! (if you see your home here, take a bow because I search high and low before I finally decide to post a home for my blog!) THANKS FOR DROPPING BY...

Again, the colours of this home
are what attracted me to it.
I just love this taupe colour.
And I love that front door mat!!!

The agent described the property as
"Very inner city Melbourne",
but I just can't remember the last time I saw a chandelier
on a front verandah, mind you, I wish I saw it more!
How fabulous is that!

So much white used in this home,
and I can't fault it.
It makes my decision to paint most of my new
town cottage white feel perfect!

Oh I do love the hydrangea flowers here like that.

Such an appropriate pic for xmas!
This apartment appears staged,
yes, I know...
But it still has some lovely spaces.
I love the use of timber, cream & specially the lighting.

See what I mean about the lighting,

Great top-to-bottom drapes.
I think it is very common to have only sheers on
windows in high apartments which avoid avo sun.

I do love the styling of this bed!

Pretty good views!

This home looks like another renovated federation home,
but inside is a different matter.
So much thought and detail has gone into this 1915 home.

The agent lists the property as owned by an architect,

Look at the rangehood in the centre of the room,
it's mirror, you hardly see it!

I don't know if you can see the tile in the bathroom,
like a mosaic - just divine.

This outdoor built in barby is amazing,
just lift up lid to use, or store shut (see below)!
