Entries in beach (81)
I've asked myself many times if there is a land more beautiful than my own Australia? And each time I have to admit that New Zealand is just a little more stunning. Just. The same question arises when it comes to architecture and interior design and the answer might just be the same. Just. This Barn House on the edge of the sea by Sumich Chaplin Architects has stolen my heart and may just prompt me to slip quietly across the Tasman Sea and declare myself a Kiwi. Perhaps ;)
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.
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.
