Backyard dream

A tale of two gardens

Two grand old homes in Sydney, two gardens full of delight. One, an entertainer's garden, sits on the harbour's edge and has an almost Mediterranean feel with stone and whitewash.

If you look closely this Tamarama Beach apartment is actually light, bright and very white but it's the colourful pops of artwork and accessories that amp up that holiday feel. Oh and let's not forget the view. Nothing says Aussie beach getaway more than an endless ocean view and a scurry across hot asphalt to get to the sand on a summer's day. If you want to make today's daydream a reality you can find out more at Contemporary Hotels.
