Still stalking on Sydney's northern beaches

PLEASE! Please I beg someone with bucket loads of money and bucket loads of good sense, buy this Palm Beach time capsule of a house with a view that is just ridiculous and restore it to its tiki bar, cruise ship, cocktails on the deck former glory. Don't knock it down and build a McMansion on steroids. PLEASE? For sale here while it lasts. (The drone video is stunning.)

Stalking a 1960s beach house

Dear readers please lend me a squillion dollars so I can buy this Pearl Beach house designed in 1963 by architect Brian Mazlin, with restoration and interior design by TFAD in 2010. It takes me back to a simpler time, when beach houses sat nestled in bush surrounds, a glimpse of sea and the sound of crashing waves all the decoration you really needed. Simple, honest, practical and probably way too expensive for me because of its exclusive enclave position on Sydney's northern beaches. Other than that it's just too perfect. For sale via Modern House.

Galyean Vail

Boston-based designer Barbara Vail of Galyean Vail strives to achieve 'mindful' spaces, and in a holistic way. I create or redesign spaces in a way that is attentive to the impact those spaces will have on the people living in them. I often use products that reflect this mission, whether that means sourcing items locally or integrating pieces with stories. Because I believe that our spaces can have a meaningful impact on our well-being, my design process often includes clearing out energies of the past and creating a functional space plan for the future. I frequently work with clients through transitions, and have found that mindfulness in design can be a source of harmony. It's no wonder I felt such a sense of calm looking through her portfolio, and want to dive into any of these spaces and experience a little zen. They all give off such beautiful energy.

Here ...

... with my feet up on the sofa, book in hand, music wafting in from the next room, doors thrown open, waiting for someone to disturb my reverie with an interesting conversation. What a lovely room by interior designer Alexander M. Reid.

Going Tribal

Perhaps the post title should be "Going to Tribal", the Tribal Hotel in Granada, Nicaragua. It's Wednesday and I am so in need of a virtual getaway that I'm guessing you are too. A tropical oasis with a boho vibe this boutique hotel is so cool, so stylish and so laid back I know that we'd fit right in. Just need a Macuá in hand to make it paradise.
