Winter in the subtropics

I really can't complain. Winter comes and goes here with only some minor bickering on my part. Days rarely drop to zero degrees and climb into the 20s with monotonous regularity. And I can't think of a better place to spend my winter days than at a beachside getaway just a couple of hours north of where I live. Welcome to 180 Degrees Noosa. I'm packing a summer wardrobe ... and maybe just a jumper or two.

Diving into the weekend

With only a couple of days until winter in my part of the world we are still experiencing summer temperatures. Where is winter? I want to pull out my winter wardrobe and layer up. Instead it's perfect weather for lounging around a fabulous backyard swimming pool like this one by Pepo Botanic Design. I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

Stalking on a Saturday

Walking past this building might tweak your curiosity but with its high castellated walls and frosted glass you would never catch a glimpse of what is inside. A business perhaps. Offices maybe. You would never suspect the spectacular 4 level home that lies behind its pale grey walls. I'm real estate stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I'm scheming and dreaming as to how I could ever raise the millions of dollars to buy this spectacular house. From its sun wells and indoor outdoor living filling white walled rooms with glowing light, to the stunning staircase winding sinuously higher, to the master suite with Ken Done painting above the bed and fire place on its own terrace to the upper level with its panoramic iconic Sydney views this is one house I would love to see in person because I'm sure the photos don't do it justice. The renovation design is by X.PACE and you can see their photos of it here. Someone in Sydney please attend an open house and let us all know how fabulous it really is. Link here while it lasts.

Rolies + Dubois architecten

Rolies + Dubois architecten are based in Antwerp, Belgium and they make magic happen with their minimalist, modern designs. I am especially smitten with the loft in the first of this selection of photos. I would just add about 100 plants and my cat herd and call it home. And the pool house in the last few photos is simple, dark and all you really need.
