A New England-style guest house in Brisbane

I stumbled upon a project by Australian interior designer Greg Natale that we appear to have never featured before, which is crazy since we have been obsessed with his work since for the past 10 years (or more If Jo knew him before we started this blog). Maybe it's because we typically die over his typical glamourous, Hollywood Regency projects...and this one is far from that but I'm kind of dying over it just the same. Only Greg could make nautical/New England style this freaking fabulous. I want to be a guest in this guest house - and move right in! From its navy plaids and stripes to its walnut-hued timbers and leathers, this Queenslander has been furnished in classic New England style to create the effect of a lavish country estate. Themed accessories and artworks, such as equine photos and sculptures, and grouped accoutrements, like a series of armorial engravings, contribute to the full, layered feel, while pieces blend Western styling with Eastern exoticism. A band of navy grasscloth wallpaper runs through the house, providing an eye-catching decorative feature but also linking rooms that have been differently configured as a result of the angled roofs.

An English kitchen

Oh I do love an English kitchen. The wooden cabinets, in this case with a bold navy finish, the pantry cupboard, a big stove with a mantle. I love the amazing light flooding through the windows in this particular example and we don't need to mention the floors. It's not the first time I've had my head turned by Blakes London (you can see more posts here) and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Nautical vibes with Matthew Caughy

Shades of blue, grey and white, sisal rugs, plants, bamboo, sailboats...something tells me New York City interior designer Matthew Caughy is inspired by all things beachy and nautical. This combination of elements makes for such soothing, timeless and casual spaces. Add in a vignette of vases filled with glorious white hydrangeas and I am smitten.

Working on a Saturday

It's a conspiracy you know. Why do I have to work on a Saturday and others do not? Not fair I say, not fair. Now if I worked at the Detour Office - Grove Street by Dehn Bloom I wouldn't complain at all. In fact I'd settle right in and never leave. That sitting area is better than my living room.

A handsome SoHo loft

From a bit feminine in my last post, to a bit masculine with this space. This SoHo loft designed by J+G Design is stylish and functional with blue accents added throughout. I can imagine the male homeowner waiting for Jennifer and Georgie to leave after having these photos taken, then immediately tossing in the trash all those flowers and branches and wondering why in the hell there are 8 pillows on the damn sofa. ;)
