More from Fawn 

You may remember the thatched cottage kitchen by Fawn Interior Design Studio that I swooned over a few months ago. (In case you don't you can find it here.) I thought you might like to see more of this lovely old home. Robert and Tamsin Allen have now worked their magic on the reception rooms. The sitting room is like a private members' club, dark and comfy, stylish and relaxing. The living room is more like a cinema room, darker and den-like while the dining room is lighter, the perfect spot for afternoon homework or gathering with family and friends to share a meal.

Stalking modern minimalism behind a Victorian facade

It must be an Australian thing but all the fun happens out the back of our houses especially in old houses with new extensions. I'm stalking a Victorian era house in a leafy street in Melbourne's Elwood. While the facade sports a cool contemporary paint job the building still remains true to its architectural past. Hints of what is to come are revealed as you walk through the front door passing the bedrooms then BAM! all minimal and scandi, edgy and modern. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. Does anyone else's inner stylist want to tidy those beds and pull the vacuum cleaner backwards and forwards evenly over the carpet?

Parkes and Lamb Interiors

There is a distinct Belgian vibe to this house by Nashville-based interior designers Parkes and Lamb Interiors. The grey colour palette enhanced with muted blues and taupes. The layering of rough textures with smooth, raw wood with plaster, whitewash and linen. It's a house with personality, a mix of new and old, high and low, traditional yet contemporary. Beautiful. Comfortable.

The Chequit

Is it just me or is this week d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g along? I just can't take anymore. Time for a virtual getaway and since summer has just begun in the northern hemisphere how about we run away to the Hamptons? To Shelter Island to be precise. I've booked us into the quaint but cool boutique inn The Chequit. Trad with a twist and a soothing pink, yellow and grey palette ... inside that is. The exterior screams summer in simple white and green, its porches filled with wicker furniture and pops of bright colour.
