Australian photographer Anson Smart is a favourite of ours – and is no stranger to the pages of this blog. His photographs are always spot on, delivering juicy eye candy at each capture. I adore each and every one of these spaces.

Sometimes I want to run away to a calmer life, a simpler house, less possessions, a safe harbour in a storm, to a house perched on a hill surrounded by bush. Today I am dreaming of chasing the late afternoon sun on a deck. Whipbirds crack the air with their song. A chill is creeping up the hill and I’m wondering how long I can leave it before I have to rise and pull the doors to. Perhaps I’ll light my first fire of the season. But not quite now. Just a little more time in the sun. Bonnet Hill House in Tasmania by Dock4.
(Note to Tasmanian readers. I have an inkling that whipbirds are not found on your island but it’s my daydream and they’re my favourite bird call.)

Chandeliers – because adding a little bit of feminine glam and sparkle can only make your space better. I guarantee it. 🙂
Looking for a chandelier that is not your typical sparkly crystal? Murano chandeliers are a little less glamorous but so classy. It would definitively become the focal point of a space.
Some things just get better with time. I’m talking worn in not worn out. Aging well, developing layers and meaning. We’ve visited Harts Lane, a holiday rental in Daylesford, Victoria before, here and here. Loved the studio and the old house but I’m loving them even more as they have developed their personalities. A change of wall colour, layered with textiles and texture, softened and styled for the new photos. Definitely somewhere I’d love to curl up in on a cold winter’s weekend away.
