Living Etc. recently included in their magazine a spread of the incredible eclectic Victorian terrace of Mark Homewood, a buyer for interiors and textile company Designers Guild. I adore all the bold colours against the white backdrop. The painted white floorboards everywhere had me gasping in delight. This home is such an inspiration. (So inspiring in fact that thanks to the staircase photos I've decided to try and fix my stairs using wood so I can then paint them white with a runner).
The weekend is over and it's time to head back to work. Unless you want to join me on a virtual getaway. Eagle's Nest is set within a 75 acre estate atop its own private ridgeline offering spectacular views of the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The elegant and simple, eclectic and informal interiors of the luxury villas enhance the breathtaking vistas. Imagine the sunsets viewed from the edge of our horizon edge pool. I'm dreaming of the room service. New Zealand food and wine is some of the best in the world. If only we were really there. (P.S. I am actually on a week's break but nowhere as romantic as this.)
