More kitchen love

Posted on Tue, 27 Jun 2017 by KiM

Just when I thought I’d found my dream kitchen in the last post… well… truth is I’m fickle. Oh no I haven’t changed my mind about deVOL kitchens. I just have a new favourite kitchen that’s all. Traditional meets eclectic with touches of retro French and contemporary graphic tiles. And the colour? Stunning.

Hello my name is Jo and I’m a Brit-style kitchen addict and deVOL is my drug of choice. OMG I love it all. The simple country style with no overhead cupboards, the pantry and concealed fridge, the different colour on the island and all the brass. It’s modern, it’s traditional, it’s country chic.

Here’s me (Bob) and Teddy having an afternoon nap. We live on the far north coast of New South Wales, Australia. My daughter took the photo on a day when it was 47 degrees Celsius outside. But inside – it was a wonderful 21. The sofa is really comfortable, it’s filled with feathers and down. It’s just the place for a nana nap.

This is my Maltese Rocco, who is absolutely, the sweetest thing in our home.

And a couple from me of course 🙂 First up is Phoebe snoozing on my grandfather chair in my living room and there are no rules in this house so Felix is sprawled on the dining table. 

Who sleeps like this?! #mybronxies

Stalking a trophy home

Posted on Mon, 26 Jun 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking Belhaven, one of Sydney’s trophy estates. High on a ridge in the exclusive suburb of Bellevue Hill, it is home to Westfield executive and Brambles chairman Stephen Johns, his wife Michele Bender and their vast art collection. (Their neighbours are media mogul Lachlan Murdoch and his wife Sarah.) I’m not bothering with the listing’s pictures. They do not do the home justice. The video does. This is how the other half lives unpretentiously in Australia. The home is expected to fetch $25 to $27 million. Link here while it lasts

Stalking watering can in hand

Posted on Mon, 26 Jun 2017 by KiM

Don’t get me wrong. I love the styling of this house in Melbourne’s waterside suburb of Brighton. I just think a lot of those plants would soon die if I was responsible for watering them on a regular basis. Link here while it lasts.
