Outdoor space envy 

It is the beginning of the season of hell here in Ottawa, or winter as most of you may know it as. It was -8C overnight, and I am already consistently frozen. Then my folks take off for 3 weeks in Barbados and here I am in alpaca socks and the warmest sweatshirt I own and it is only October. So when I stumble upon an outdoor space this beautiful, I just really want to cry. By Kennedy Nolan in collaboration with Sam Cox Landscape


New with old

The renovation and extension of this Beverley Hills home included the incorporation of elements from a dismantled 19th century wood barn as well as a new entrance and landscaping. The old beams and siding add warmth to the expansive rooms. I love the marriage of the new build with the old barn wood, the mid century feel of the furnishings working back against the aged timbers and white walls and the beautiful dry climate garden.

Verdant views

There is a little slice of paradise in the rolling hills behind the northern New South Wales coastal resort of Byron Bay. Lush green land with stunning views often with old farm houses poised on top of a ridge. Where once dairy cattle grazed or avocado trees groaned under bumper crops now cashed up tree changers create little kingdoms. As much as I love a good old Queenslander-style house restoration (this one was moved here) it's the gardens that I'm concentrating on today. A simple, classic layout with emphasis on the house and that view. Such green goodness in Federal by Secret Gardens.

Greenhouse living

I'm not sure this would work in my part of the world, especially in summer but now that I've seen it, I really, really want to live in a greenhouse. By Philadelphia-based Groundswell Design Group.


Where I want to be

When the temperature is right, I want to be right here. 

When I have time to catch up on some reading, I want to be sprawled on the sofa right here. (That wall colour!)

When catching up with a friend, we want to be right here. 

When I want husband to cook me an epic meal, we want to be right here. 

When I want to take in the scenery and enjoy a cup of tea, I want to be right here. 

When I want to enjoy the sunshine and some BBQ, I want to be right here.
