A tropical island daydream

Time to escape to a tropical island getaway on the Great Barrier Reef here in Australia. Bedarra Island Villa, a private beach house, a perfect slice of tranquility. Can you see a theme developing in my posts this week?

Gorta Yuuki

I absolutely adore these photos by Japanese photographer Gorta Yuuki. There is such a serene quality to them with such glorious lighting and low contrast and saturation (why does everyone over-saturate these days?!). So calming and beautiful. Having a crappy Monday? This is your cure.

Stalking leftovers

It's that time of the week again when I play devil's advocate. Lovely homes? Yes ... well ... er ... maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. Fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable, can't quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's finds include my usual assortment of terrace houses ( I can't help it. I like terrace houses. OK?), a fab modern refurb of an art deco apartment and an historic B&B complex in the country that I would love to take to the next level ... if I had a cool mill to buy it.

Fiona Lynch

I have some seriously sinful eye candy for you to welcome the weekend (it's supposed to rain the whole time here in Ottawa though DAMMIT). Australian interior designer Fiona Lynch (formerly of Doherty Lynch) has been going strong solo whipping up some serene modern spaces including several really fantastic kitchens (*swoon*). I am really sweet on that rug in the photo just below - perfect addition of just enough colour.
