A lakeside weekend home

This lakeside weekend home in North Carolina is an absolute DREAM! (And OMG it's a WEEKEND home?!?!) As I always say, a 'cottage' is where you can get away with anything. Here, the owners nixed the idea of a dining room in favour of a deep upholstered niche and shuffleboard table, and instead of a traditional boat dock opted for a 'party dock' - a floating lounge complete with wet bar, TV, swimmer's platform and loungey furnishings. There's even a bedroom converted into a gym with climbing wall. All made absolutely beautiful thanks to interior designer Heather Garrett. Perfectly rustic yet perfectly sophisticated and the perfect summer hangout. (In case you missed Heather's loft, it's here)

Taking a dip

When I need inspiration all I need to do is dive into Jonathan Tuckey Design. It's such a refreshing dip. Today I have a hankering for a seaside getaway. Beach House in Cap Ferret.

The ultimate beach shack

The view is to die for and the house is simply beautiful. I like my beach house to be relaxed and laid back but still with a certain sophistication. (Listen to me! As if I have a beach house!) Stylish, chic, private and elegant but not too precious that you can't see kids in swim suits and towels over chairs. I'd move in here in a heart beat. Warm sun, the sound of crashing waves and that view. Amaroo at Whale Beach north of Sydney is available for holidays via Contemporary Hotels.

Cottage chic

Summer is here and I am loving every minute of it. Hanging out with the family at my parent's pool ("The Oasis"), barbecues, dinner on patios, the smell of fresh flowers, the sounds of birds chirping...it is definitively cottage season. Sadly there is no longer one in my family (my younger sister had one for a few years and recently sold it), but I continue to dream of owning a cottage one day so I can enjoy the outdoors and OMG another home to decorate!! It seems you can get away with so much more at a cottage. LOL Anyway, Style At Home magazine has a wonderful collection of cottage features so I thought I would share an assortment of my favourite spaces.
