An elegant retreat

Posted on Wed, 11 Mar 2020 by midcenturyjo

A guest room or a peaceful sanctuary? Perhaps both. I know if this room was mine I certainly wouldn’t leave it just for my guests. You would find me curled up on the bed with a book or engaged in a little gossip over tea with friends. An elegant retreat indeed. Hamptons Showhouse Guest Room by Michael Del Piero.

Green with envy

I thought, at first, that it was the light filled living areas. Perhaps it was the cheery bathing facilities. It wasn’t long though before I had to own the truth. It was that colourful kitchen that had me green with envy. Woodley Terrace by Montgomery, Alabama interior designer Ashley Gilbreath.

Still chasing the real estate dream but this time I’m in the inner Sydney suburb of Woollahra eying off a small but stylish Victorian cottage full of charm, light and art work. Historical details and modern creature comforts make it a perfect city pad. Link here while it lasts.


Dream of a contemporary home, sleek lined and modern, with all the luxury finishes but family friendly? Dream of open plan with walls of glass opening to manicured garden with pool? Does a monochromatic black and white palette punctuated with hits of colour from standout art works ring your design bell? Well perhaps this architect designed home for sale in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Brighton is just right for you. Now if we could just convince the vendor to leave their art collection behind 😉  Link here while it lasts.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it should be somewhere stylish. (Is working in a fabulous dress shop really work though?) Coco and Lola, Double Bay by LAHAUS.
