I looooove this mid-century vibe ‘The Homecoming’ house designed by Adelaide, South Australia architecture firm Atelier Bond. The blend of indoor-outdoor has me wanting to move to the tropics even more than ever. The Homecoming marks a new chapter for this family who returned to Adelaide after a stint overseas. Their brief to Atelier Bond included a significant addition to the rear of their untouched villa as well as reconfiguring the floorplan of the original dwelling to better suit their needs. The result is a bright and open lounge and entertaining space that accommodates their relaxed lifestyle, 2.5 bathrooms and a generous outdoor wrap-around deck that encapsulates the best of Australian living and style.

(I want these trough-like planters!!!!)
If the previous beach house was about washed out sea glass hues then this Manly Beach apartment by Brett Mickan Interior Design is all about the bright play of sea blues and greens. Bold with a hint of retro beach shack kitsch, it’s high holiday style with a touch of fun.
A soft palette of sand and stone, washed out pastels and white, beautiful white. Clean lines and bespoke cabinetry. Whitewashed brick, blonde timbers, ethnic touches and a relaxed elegance. Beach side living at its stylish best. Avoca Beach house by one of my favourite interior designers Karen Akers. Pinch me. It’s a dream.
P.S. So you think this place couldn’t be more perfect? Well it can. You can rent it for holidays! You can email for more information here.
