Trading it in for paradise

A land of the alternative, a land of the wealthy, a land of the stylish, a land of community, a land of contradictions. An almost mythical land. The green rolling hills that climb above the white beaches of Australia's most easterly point. Byron Bay and its hinterland. Paradise. And where better to drink in the nectar of the slightly alternative style gods than bryon view farm home of strangetrader owners Robert Schwamberg and Andrea Duff. Paradise in a weatherboard cottage available to rent. Feel like trading it all in for paradise?

yep,from a local viewpoint it's nice here but just to make you feel better, it's also the home of a huge amount of brown snakes and there aint one decent coffee shop in town..haha!

The embellisments on the grey armchairs is something I have not seen before. Fascinating! Also the white ornament mirror is to my taste.

Please someone pinch me ! I think I just saw pictures of my dream house ... did I ?! Saved for future reference (or just to show a contractor and say : "I WANT THIS!"".

I'm gonna go relax and try to catch my breath now.

I'm dying a little death over that light fixture in the bedroom!

Loving the Ombre pattern on that blanket. Beautiful home overall and, of course, beautiful landscape!

Who would ever want to leave to go get coffee??? You could justify a top of the line espresso machine I think.....

Yes, please and thank you to the studding on those grey armchairs. Love that bathroom sink, too.

The chandy in the bedroom is pure bliss! I can imagine such gorgeous shapes illuminated on the walls when that baby's lit! Such a well-done interior...and hello, I doubt anything can beat that view!

Peace. Love. LOL!
