Stalking

I'm stalking in the well-heeled Melbourne suburb of Toorak and what a home I have found. 1930's brick with 4 bedrooms, 3 bath and wonderful outdoor living and garden. Almost like living in a resort. Perhaps not quite my style (I'd like a bit more art deco, a touch less Hamptons) but hey I wouldn't say no if one of you bought it for me. Link here while it lasts.

Boathouse

Never mind the house. (It's beautiful by the way.) I would be happy with "just" the boathouse. Perfection perched on the edge of the Sydney Harbour by interior designer Sarah Davidson.

Pati's no-longer-a-mud-patch backyard

Massively slanted mud patch??? Pati Robins has worked miracles on her backyard space and it has me so inspired to get my arse moving on my own outdoor spaces whenever our frigid winter decides to come to an end. And how incredible is that photo above?!

Gardens by Nelson Byrd Woltz

The temperature has risen here about 30°C and I am dreaming of all the things I would love to do in my yard once the piles of snow melt away. My husband has made an absolute mess of the front yard by parking his work pick-up plow truck right on the front lawn so I am preparing myself to die of embarrassment when the snow is gone and we are left with a mud pile (not helping at all that we live on a very busy road). As soon as I get this post completed I am stashing a bunch of these photos away for reference. These gardens, walkways, backyards and rooftop patios by landscape architecture firm Nelson Byrd Woltz (located in Charlottesville Virginia and New York City) are soooooo beautiful. The outdoor space above is magical - I love grasses and very "feathery" plants that look like cotton candy.

A casual glam

What do you get when you mix industrial with bling, Palm Springs with plantation style, all with a South African influence? A house brimming with the owner's personality by Durban-based Douglas and Douglas. Definitely glam but a casual almost effortless glam. We know better ;)
