Not your average beach house

A joyous play on colour and pattern, vinatge and new, this MacMasters Beach home by Sydney-based Brett Mickan Interior Design is definitely not your typical beach house. Oh the clichéd nautical and fish motifs may make an appearance here and there but their presence is a tongue-in-cheek reference to holiday living by the sea. This house is all about family fun in the Aussie sun with a nod to your grandparents' beach shack from the 60s combined with modern, casual living.

Little Black Shack

Yesterday I stalked a multi-million dollar house on Sydney's Pittwater, all black and glass and steel. It was fabulous no doubt but I'll let you into a secret. I'm a simple girl who likes simple things, beautiful, simple things I admit. If I had the choice between spending the weekend in yesterday's mansion or today's fibro shack I think I'd choose this Little Black Shack. Simple. I mean look at that view!

Stalking black and white on the water

I'm stalking the epitome of style and relaxed sophistication on the the shores of Sydney's Pittwater in the suburb of Bayview. Black and white with accents of warm woods and the glint of metallics. Effortless transition between the beautiful interiors and the lush landscaped garden. Then there are the views and the fact that you have only to cross the road to feel the sand between your toes. Want. Seriously, seriously want. Link here while it lasts.

The Grey House in Camber

It's a dream I've always harboured. An unpretentious beachside house, comfortable with an almost spartan beauty ... almost. I would always have room for a found object or a time worn piece. A short walk to a wind swept beach. The sound of waves ever present like a heartbeat of a simple life. A home to be alone and a home to share with family and friends. A house a little something like this. The Grey House Camber via Light Locations.

A beach house on the Costa Brava

When the location is this amazing and the view is to die for, when the house is simple in its bones and that's a good thing, when all you want is a place to gather and make wonderful family holiday memories then this might just be the house for you. The house is on the Costa Brava in Spain and the sympathetic restoration and renovation by Nook Architects allows the house to remain true to its traditional, mediterranean origins while providing a stylish, contemporary living space.
