A modern farmhouse by Blackband Design

This modern farmhouse in Newport Heights, California has me craving beaches, sun and t-shirt weather. Designed by Greg and Wendy Blackband of Blackband Design, it has a definite beachy colour theme going and looks utterly comfy, casual and unpretentious. Black accents pop against white, greenery adds some nature inside and textures and patterns keeps things eclectic and creates some visual drama. The perfect getaway for entertaining and relaxing.

Ofist - Y House

As serene as the blue, blue ocean that is framed by its windows. As stylish as its fashion industry owners. The perfect summer retreat in the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, the Y House by Istanbul-based architectural firm Ofist.

Beach house

There is nothing like a really large house beautifully decorated right on the beach to get your heart pumping. This beach pad by Brown Design Group is everything you could want - tranquil earthy colours and a casual vibe that is perfect for the surroundings. Bonus to-die-for view. (In case you missed my features of their work last week - here and here)

A lakeside weekend home

This lakeside weekend home in North Carolina is an absolute DREAM! (And OMG it's a WEEKEND home?!?!) As I always say, a 'cottage' is where you can get away with anything. Here, the owners nixed the idea of a dining room in favour of a deep upholstered niche and shuffleboard table, and instead of a traditional boat dock opted for a 'party dock' - a floating lounge complete with wet bar, TV, swimmer's platform and loungey furnishings. There's even a bedroom converted into a gym with climbing wall. All made absolutely beautiful thanks to interior designer Heather Garrett. Perfectly rustic yet perfectly sophisticated and the perfect summer hangout. (In case you missed Heather's loft, it's here)
