I have always loved that first image. I posted it way back here. It’s Tregoning House at Avalon Beach, Sydney by architect Daniel Raymond. The sad thing is that for ages it was the only glimpse of the large barn like extension that I could find. Somehow I just knew that I would love the rest of the house. Raymond is now a director, along with Thomas Martin, of Rama Architects and it’s there my wish was granted. More photos!!

It’s my favourite time of the year here in my subtropical home … or should that be garden? Autumn is neither too hot or too cold here. We may not have much in the way of spectacular autumn colour but instead the garden continues to grow and thrive. With daytime maximums in the mid 20s (Celsius) and nights only dipping to low teens dare I say it’s almost like a European summer. Living in such a paradise it’s easy to see why my mind is full of garden inspiration. My latest plans are heavily influenced by these two fabulous (and very petite) outdoor spaces by Sydney-based landscape design firm Garden Society. Time to get working in the garden again this weekend.
Let’s tick off our ultimate apartment check list. Large rooms with exposed timber beams and steel framed windows. Killer art collection. Pierre Jeanneret chairs. Expansive terrazzo floors and for added impact a monolithic terrazzo kitchen island. Have we forgotten anything? Oh yes! A Paris address. Rue Galilée by Bernard Dubois Architects

I have all things “kitchen” on my mind. It may be because I am almost finished my own kitchen renovation ( I promise to share photos as soon as it is done) or it may just be that I keep coming across killer kitchens as I surf the net … like these sustainable bamboo beauties by Norwegian Ask og Eng. Choose from custom built or door fronts for IKEA carcasses. Perfect!
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it better be somewhere stylish … and chic and beautiful and totally somewhere you’d want to live let alone work. Well that, at least, is the way I feel about interior designer Sarah Davison‘s Kellett St Design Studio.
