1. The Arch Aesthetic

Where? 105/27 Pine Street, Brighton, VIC 3186

The building housing this sophisticated apartment has made use of stunning repetition of arch features and we’re all for it. Not only do the soft curves of these arches create a pleasing visual interest, it leads the eye out into the view.

2. The Sleek Boutique

Why we’re smitten: Set against a contemporary base palette of white, black and neutrals, the bold colours and personality injected into this property will make you think you’ve stepped into a cool, boutique hotel.

3. The Cubist Ceilings

Where? 325 Walsh Street, South Yarra, VIC 3141

Why we’re smitten: We often forget that ceilings can be a feature and, wow, these coffered ceilings are the star of the show in this gorgeous residence. We’re absolutely in love with these geometric-look ceilings which work best in traditional and formal interior styles, but can also look good in modern homes. While coffered ceilings are typically decorative only, they can also improve acoustics in a room.

In June, the median rent for listings in South Yarra was $625 per week.

Where? 51 Stanley Street, Darlinghurst, NSW 2010

Why we’re smitten: Is your brain already racing with millions of ideas on how to kit out this space as a man cave (or a she shed!)? We’re definitely tossing up between a ping pong or pool table, or maybe even a wine cellar! This unique, four-storey terrace home showcases an industrial aesthetic, featuring brickwork, stonework and concrete throughout – with an occasional splash of timber and steel elements.

5. The Home Above the Trees
