Big Bay Beach House

I can smell the salt in the air and hear the crash of relentless waves. Sand whipped up by the stiff onshore breeze stings my shins. I squint into the bright light and wonder if I'll trek down to the beach and plunge headfirst into the sea or whether I should be sensible, walk back inside and slather cream into my sunburn. A beautiful location, a beautiful house, a beautiful daydream. Big Bay Beach House, 25 minutes drive from Cape Town, South Africa and available for holiday let. Maybe not a dream after all.

A weathered warehouse

I saw this story on the website of magazine Garden & Gun and while on the subject of magazines, thought it was worthy of sharing as I love a good warehouse conversion. This warehouse is in Greensboro, North Carolina and is now the shop and home of antiques dealer Dan Garrett. His shop is the main level, the second level is half shop storage and half main living space (including kitchen, dining area, a sitting room) and the third level is a wide open living area with a bed tucked into a rear niche. Love the rustic industrial feel and the coziness that is created from Dan's beautiful antiques.

Heart Home sneak peek

The winter issue of British magazine Heart Home is launching tomorrow and it looks seriously promising, as per usual. They sent me some photos to share with you all and after twisting my arm (HA - totally kidding) I figured why not. Especially after seeing the photo above (Hilde Mork's living room). That space is so gorgeous I want to eat it.

On the porch

It's probably too late in the year. It is probably too cold. Snow may have fallen and the trees are more than likely bare by now but next year ... next year as summer fades and the autumn closes in you'll find me sitting on the porch, perhaps with a fire crackling in the corner, a rug close by. Yes you'll find me rocking quietly, drinking in the view ... in my dreams. By Meyer Davis Studio.

Skyline

Is this the ultimate home cinema? Pass the popcorn and roll the film, I'm moving in. Perched on a ridge line in the Hollywood Hills, the Skyline Residence by Belzberg Architects may incorporate sustainable design practices, may have clean modern lines, expansive rooms with outrageous views through vast walls of glass but what we all will be pinning and filing away for another day will be the outdoor theatre. Genius.
