Perfectly imperfect. Manzara Ayvalik by Istanbul architects Gabi Kern-Altındiş and Erdoğan Altındiş. Modern minimalism within a once crumbling historic shell in a village on the Aegean Sea. See. What did I say? Perfectly imperfect. Available to let as a holiday home it's my Wednesday daydream. I'm packing my swimsuit in my mind. More via Manzara Istanbul and Urlaubs Architektur.
Modern and beachy, with touches of green and blues to remind you of the sea. A heavenly retreat on Cottesloe Beach, Western Australia created by Collected Interiors. Taking the inspiration from the coastal location, we utilised textures and colours inspired by nature and the ocean to accomplish airy and fresh interiors. Simple, clean, window treatments suit the beach lifestyle and louvered windows let the afternoon sea breeze in. Timber flooring was complimented by textured flat weave rugs, easy to shake off beach sand. A combination of materials and textures were used such as cotton, linen and hemp to create an organic natural feel. The colour palette of indigo and white takes inspiration from the Indian Ocean.

The awards have been decided, gongs to be given and it's official. The World Architectural Festival has chosen the Dune House by New Zealand's Fearon Hay Architects as the winner in the Villa category. Nestled in the dunes of a popular beach the home provides shelter and privacy, a raw richness and coastal calm. Interiors are in collaboration with Penny Hay.
Just a few sandy steps from the beach is a rambling old beach house settled between the trees and it's my idea of heaven. I'm stalking in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. If I was actually there on a house inspection would I ever want to go home. Sorry. Staying. Stylish, casual, lived in and loved. Nothing too precious except for the memories of good times spent with family and friends. Link here while it lasts. (Thanks for stalking on your lunch hour for me Andrea!)
