Monochrome mastery

Like a modernist sand castle this Malibu house by Jamie Bush is a master class in monochromatic palette and texture. The colours of shell and sand and stone are repeated and enhanced in this sea side retreat with rough and handmade juxtaposed with the modern and clean lined. The perfect counterfoil to all limited colour palette is, of course, the endless blue of the sea and the sky.

Winter in the subtropics

I really can't complain. Winter comes and goes here with only some minor bickering on my part. Days rarely drop to zero degrees and climb into the 20s with monotonous regularity. And I can't think of a better place to spend my winter days than at a beachside getaway just a couple of hours north of where I live. Welcome to 180 Degrees Noosa. I'm packing a summer wardrobe ... and maybe just a jumper or two.

The Little Glass House

How comfortable does the Santa Barbara home of interior stylist Elizabeth D Burns (edb designs) look? Stylish, welcoming, relaxed, you just want to settle in and make it your own. With white walls and pale wood floors, the beachy accent palette as well as treasured objects add interest and warmth. Large windows allow the sun to stream in and views of the lovely garden to be enjoyed. Definitely an "in and out" house with outdoor living areas increasing the house's entertaining footprint.

A beachside getaway in Portugal

Is it the end of the weekend already? Another working week stretches before us and I'm daydreaming of a beachside getaway to help me make it through until next weekend. Let's escape to Alentejo Beach House, a contemporary villa rental near Comporta on the beautiful Alentejo coast in Portugal. Three independent bungalows with beautiful ocean views and a communal main house for dining and socialising. Oh the sunsets and the sand and the water and the rolling dunes! Oh the fabulous Portuguese food and wine! Oh is it really a new working week already! Alentejo Beach House another hand-picked piece of paradise via Welcome Beyond.

Words cannot describe

The real estate adage goes "location, location, location" and I don't think you can get a more spectacular location than Ben Buckler Point in Sydney, overlooking iconic Bondi Beach. Here houses spill down to the high water line bravely facing the unremitting waves. How do you design a house that is up to the challenge of sea and scene? How to embrace the view and the site restraints? Ask architects Tobias Partners or better still drink in the restrained beauty of their design, Deepwater House.
