Entries in beach (66)
I have another project from a Polish interior designer to share with you. Magda of 2kul Interior Design sent photos of a beautiful beach house in Costa Rica. Is a simple project, but maybe, with everything that is happening last days simple is not a bad thing. Project is in the middle of nowhere ;), around Avellana beach in Costa Rica. Not a big budget, not much stores around and qualified workers. So we use anything that we found and nature gave us. Bark of a palm tree gives us material to make chandelier above the stairs, beach sticks and wood from the ocean - all the other decorations, lamps structures, handmade 'deer' on a wall. Palets that been left after construction become furnitures. Had my mother and her skills around so ask to make this huge hanging black and white lamp that you can see in the corner of a room. This goes to show with a bit of ingenuity and some found objects, you can create a wonderful space with next to no budget. For the record Magda, your mom has talent - I would buy that light fixture!
The idea of a luxury holiday doesn't always have to be about 5 star hotels. The new luxury, especially for families, is escaping to a fabulous beachside home with a view to die and a flair all its own. A real home. Stylish and sophisticated when it needs to be, casually chic with sand between its toes when it doesn't. Beautiful surroundings, great location and quality time with family and friends ... that's the new luxury. Tamarama Beach Pad via Contemporary Hotels.
I had to share one more wonderful home from Charleston-based interior designer Cortney Bishop. A bright and colourful family home at the beach. Blues and seagreens with beadboard and polished floors. A hint of retro and a touch of tropical. It's all about kicking off your shoes, collapsing in a chair and knowing you're home.
Have you heard? Monday has been cancelled. No need for the weekend to end. No need to get the kids off to school or head in to work. Instead we can all spend the day by the water at this Palm Beach Pool House north of Sydney. Well maybe not all of us. It's the perfect get away for two. Where else would I find such a gem? At Contemporary Hotels of course.
