Just a few sandy steps from the beach is a rambling old beach house settled between the trees and it's my idea of heaven. I'm stalking in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. If I was actually there on a house inspection would I ever want to go home. Sorry. Staying. Stylish, casual, lived in and loved. Nothing too precious except for the memories of good times spent with family and friends. Link here while it lasts. (Thanks for stalking on your lunch hour for me Andrea!)
I admittedly spend alot of what little free time I have on Instagram. It is a wonderful place to virtually meet all kinds of creative people. I came across the Instagram account of designer/stylist/artist Maaike Koster of My Deer a while back and was smitten with her home and her style. Here is a selection from her interior/styling portfolio (she also specializes in concept design/branding).
I'd like to share a couple of beautiful homes designed by Mike Jacobs Architecture that both have mid-century modern vibes. This first one, located in Los Angeles, is as palatial as they come and is a classy, toned-down version of mid-century design. The second is located in Los Feliz, and was a 630 sq ft addition and complete interior renovation of a 1920's Mediterranean-style bungalow. It has a bright and energizing mid-century vibe that is much more "Palm Springs" and casual than the first. My favourite. (Check out another of their projects here)
