Let's play Cards in the Pool!

Have you ever seen such spectacular pool tiling?
Lined with Bisazza tiles, 
this pool has playing cards
woven into the mosaic patterning.
It's just one of the art touches in this 
most eclectic home for sale at Malvern,
which is a leafy inner-city suburb of Melbourne.
Aged French Oak floorboards
create warmth and softness,
as the perfect base for white walls
and fabulous artworks.
This kitchen bench stretches out 
into the courtyard.
Here's the other half of it. 
Gorgeous for alfresco dining. 
Half-in/ half-out!
What fun!
Running the same tiles up the walls 
from the floor is a great trick 
for creating a cocooning style bathroom.
More of those vibrant artworks
in the bedroom. 

I love the richly bright colours
against the white walls & dark timber floors.

What do you think?
Would you like to live here?
