The Homecoming House by Atelier Bond

I looooove this mid-century vibe 'The Homecoming' house designed by Adelaide, South Australia architecture firm Atelier Bond. The blend of indoor-outdoor has me wanting to move to the tropics even more than ever. The Homecoming marks a new chapter for this family who returned to Adelaide after a stint overseas. Their brief to Atelier Bond included a significant addition to the rear of their untouched villa as well as reconfiguring the floorplan of the original dwelling to better suit their needs. The result is a bright and open lounge and entertaining space that accommodates their relaxed lifestyle, 2.5 bathrooms and a generous outdoor wrap-around deck that encapsulates the best of Australian living and style. Photos: Russell Millard Photography (Thank you Leisha and Greg Bond for sharing your project with us!)

Beach blue

If the previous beach house was about washed out sea glass hues then this Manly Beach apartment by Brett Mickan Interior Design is all about the bright play of sea blues and greens. Bold with a hint of retro beach shack kitsch, it's high holiday style with a touch of fun.

Beach beauty

A soft palette of sand and stone, washed out pastels and white, beautiful white. Clean lines and bespoke cabinetry. Whitewashed brick, blonde timbers, ethnic touches and a relaxed elegance. Beach side living at its stylish best. Avoca Beach house by one of my favourite interior designers Karen Akers. Pinch me. It's a dream.

P.S. So you think this place couldn't be more perfect? Well it can. You can rent it for holidays! You can email for more information here.

HOMEROOM Studio

I was so excited when Romy Dankner of HOMEROOM Studio emailed with her latest project. The contemporary home features clean lines, beautiful finishes (that stone in the kitchen ... swoon) and bright pops of colour in an otherwise neutral palette. I love Romy's use of unusual pendant lighting in the bathrooms and the bone inlay pieces that are a signature of her work. Check out her Instragram too to keep up with her latest designs and finds.

Heart Attack and Vine Cafe

Some might call it retro revival. Others would say it was paying respect, paying your dues. Heart Attack and Vine Cafe is a newcomer on the Lygon St strip, a Johnny-come-lately to this iconic row of Italian eateries and nightspots in Melbourne's inner city Carlton. Pizza and red wine, espresso and dolce, men who have been mentioned in criminal enquiries and nonne with saintly demeanours. This cafe by day and bar by night with design by Nicky Adams fits in seamlessly and stylishly.
