Red, white and blue with a view

I'm real estate stalking today in the Byron Bay hinterland. I think the township of Federal perched high above the New South Wales coastline is just a hop skip and jump away from heaven. How about this renovated Queenslander-style home? Modern touches opening it up to the great outdoors and a colour scheme that isn't a patriotic cliché. Pool's pretty cool too but you'll find me on the verandah sipping a glass of white wine at the end of the day. Link here while it lasts.

Stuart Membery

Fashion designer, artist, furniture and homewares designer, Australian icon Stuart Membery. Welcome to his piece of paradise in Bali. Stuart's home is elegant and relaxed, catering to all the senses. A tropical paradise as it should be. A little OTT, a lot of fun Stuart's compound consists of a main house with extensive outdoor living areas and a guest house all wrapped in the lush greenery of the tropical gardens. And of course it is the perfect showcase for Stuart's latest range of furniture and homewares. Gorgeous rattan and wicker, carved timbers with an asian plantation touch, lashings of blue and white. I'm booking my ticket for an extended stay or at least dreaming of where to place a rattan chair or two in my place. You'll find it all on his website.

Election time in Australia

Yes we're in the middle of a protracted election campaign in Australia. Still 2 weeks until election day. I don't want to show political bias so I thought I'd do a post that combined both major parties, the Liberals (right wing) blue and the Labour Party (left wing) red. So without further ado the red and blue room post!

And mustn't forget the Greens who will probably hold the balance of power in the Senate.

Take the time to check out these super talented photographers' sites. I'll be singing their praises in detail soon.


More palest blue and sea mist green

It's obvious I love these colours. Calming, serene, sophisticated,delicate and subtle. The last in this look at these ethereal hues.

Ethereal hue part 2

More of those faded vintage blues and greens. Can't get enough. Cool and elegant they are evocative of the aquamarine of the sea or the delicate tint of birds' eggs and lend a sense of airiness to a room.
