TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

Contemporary by the sea with a mid century vibe taken to the next level with terracotta floors, limewashed ceilings, concrete accents and Oblica fireplace. Add in the bold art works and on point furnishings and this is one cool beach shack in Jan Juc on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Unfortunately for us it has been quickly snapped up. Link here while it lasts.
“This mindblowing 5,000 square foot ocean-front luxury villa sits in one of Bali’s most spectacular settings on the rocks of Uluwatu directly facing one of the Island’s iconic waves, Impossibles. With its turquoise shutters, panoramic view and chic understated yet meticulously detailed design, Mandala. The Rocks. is truly the ultimate beach house.”
A salty tang is in the air and the rhythmic crash of waves provide the sound track. Interiors are light and bright with blonde wood furniture, a washed out colour palette of whites and sands with accents of black. The look is relaxed but sophisticated with an emphasis on natural textures. It’s summer at the beach in Australia. It’s Noosa style by CLO Studios.
This is pretty much my dream home right here. Funky vintage mash-ups on the interior with modern artwork and a black exterior with coloured stone and decking and A RIVER in your backyard AND multiple outbuildings to have your own personal space along with a space to shoo partner/children to keep them out of your hair. Sounds absolutely perfect to me. For sale via The Modern House.
Conjuring the American bayou with its black cladding and superb situation on the banks of the River Rother, Chandlers Reach occupies the longest private river frontage in Rye. Consisting of a main house and a series of converted outbuildings, accommodation extends to almost 4,000 sq ft, with parking for several cars, a garage, substantial 200 ft garden, and uninterrupted views across the diverse natural habitat of Romney Marshes, to the sea beyond. The main house is arranged over two levels, with five bedrooms in all. Painted-timber floors and internal cladding of timber and corrugated steel contribute to the wonderful tapestry of materials within, resulting in playful and uplifting aesthetic throughout. Spanning the considerable length of the property are three outbuildings. Two of these have been converted into self-contained studios, with one currently earning significant income through holiday rental (the house is also a popular choice for location shoots). The third is used as a creative studio and office but is plumbed for use as accommodation.
