A little holiday shack


This is the stunning three bedroom penthouse at Netanya, a beachfront resort at Noosa just two hours north of Brisbane. With interiors deigned by Joan Moore of JDM Design this is the playground of the rich and famous. There's a rock and roll holiday excess to this apartment. I guess an interior has to work hard to compete with such a stunning view. $6.6 million AUD and this little holiday shack is yours. For now and probably forever I'll just lie on the beach to catch that view.

Must must must must must


Run out now and grab the latest edition (May June) of Inside Out. I cannot begin to sing the praises of this Australian magazine. Honestly I believe it is one of the best shelter magazines out there and this brand new edition has me jumping up and down. I've taken a couple of photos of my copy to let you in on what's in store for you. The cover tells you that Liza Giles is inside (yes I know that we've all been salivating over her home since it appeared in Swedish Elle Interior) but wait there's more. OMG the New York apartment of Australian stylist Sibella Court and the über cool Greenwich Village digs of Aussie Andrew Egan (just a taste in the last pic).


Go now. Camp outside your favourite international magazine vendor's stall and buy yourself a copy. As we say here in Australia - do yourself a favour! It has nothing to do with my own obsession with bus rolls. I swear! (Click on the pictures for their full gorgeousness.)

Small spaces


Real estate stalking again. What else is a girl to do on a slow Friday afternoon? I found this tiny terrace in the oldest part of my home town and I'm blown away by the small space tricks the architect (don't know which firm unfortunately) has used here. As you can see from the outside this terrace is not much more than 4 metres across if that. Love the wall cutouts and use of glass as well as the vertical full height banisters and folding wall of windows. The decor looks a little "hired" and I'm itching to add some art and personal touches as well as shots of colour but it's the great sense of space I'm highlighting here. Forget that the bedroom looks like the developer has bunked down for the duration and imagine what that room must be like when the bifolds are pushed back and the late summer breeze blows in. Love the view from the rear balcony over it's teeny weeny and historic neighbours. All this less than one kilometre from the CBD.

Kim Payne


Time for another talented Australian stylist from the stable of Lizard Management. Kim Payne has a fabulous portfolio. Don't miss her people and places where stunningly beautiful girls in summer gardens distract you from Kim's colourful still life tear sheets. I love her take on midcentury modern and the surfer coastal riff she has going on.
