The last post was just plain cruel! I shouldn't rub in the fact that I live in God's own country with the most beautiful beaches open to everyone and the most amazing climate. Sorry that it's freezing in your part of Canada Kim. Really I am. To make up for it I'll show you another house in Noosa. This is my dream house in the super rich playground. Think I have just enough money for a cappucino after a swim in the ocean and this will remain a daydream.
Kim was only complaining ... sorry telling me the other day that it's snowing in Ottawa already. Here it's a balmy late spring. I thought I'd share a house in Noosa, a beautiful coastal tourist spot 2 hours drive north of Brisbane. Playground of the discreetly rich it is skirted by river, sea and national park. This house is typical of the Noosa style and of course the outdoor spaces play a major role
P.S. Check out the live beach cams on the Noosa Tourism website. Don't you hate snow.
The architecture and design firm of Bockman Forbes + Glasgow are masters of mixing the old with the new. Modern with traditional. It's my favourite combination, because it's unexpected and exciting. "The studio's design philosophy adheres to modern spatial relationships, a graphic silhouette, a refined use of materials and a strong, sophisticated color palette. Whether combining a cherry-red Regency chandelier with a Saarinen lounge chair or refinishing a classical column in white lacquer, it's the Studio's unique ability to reinterpret the classics that give all their projects that "wow" factor."
Katie Ridder can create the most wonderfully traditional rooms but they still have that wow factor. Texture, colour, pattern all play a part. This former decorating editor from House and Garden and House Beautiful is equally at home with antique crystal chandeliers or midcentury sputnik lights.
