Straight To The Pool Room

Wednesday January 11, 2012 Written by nadia

In Australia we have a saying and that saying is: "It's going straight to the pool room." This means: "Bloody ripper mate you've done a good job."

The pool room is the best room. It's a shrine to the good stuff that a family might have created, won or done.

For those unfamiliar with the saying, it comes from an Australian film called The Castle, which (if you haven't seen it) you should track down 'cause it makes all of us Aussies look like decent, caring legends.

As a Tumblr, Straight To The Pool Room pulls in some champion Aussie interiors from real estate sites. Each pervy shot gives an indication of the house inhabitants and the sense of pride (or not) that they take in their space.
