More lovely Swedish photos

I will never tire of photos of Swedish decor. My heart starts racing and my head fills with all sorts of ideas on how to "Swede" up my home. Hope you aren't tired of them either because here is another post thanks to Swedish magazine Sköna hem.

Dog on a chair apologies


Sorry to everyone facing an oncoming winter. It wasn't very nice of me to flaunt my subtropical beaches. Here's a wonderful Dalmatian on a Swan chair as an apology ;)

It's Saturday here now and I off to vote in the national elections. I love voting, not just to exercise my democratic right but because most polling booths are in schools. What is so good about that? Fundraising cake stalls. Yum!

Okay that was unfair of me!


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.

Come on in the water is fine!


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.

Bockman Forbes + Glasgow


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."
