Cabanon

Posted on Wed, 8 Feb 2017 by KiM

A wee, white shed by the sea in the Èze region of France. It may be small in size but it’s big on style. Piano on the deck anyone? Cabanon by Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet.

Brazilian beachside boho chic

Posted on Mon, 23 Jan 2017 by KiM

The fishing village of Trancoso on Brazil’s Costa del Descubrimiento may have started as a hippie hideaway but it’s now the super trendy vacation spot. As many of our Northern Hemisphere readers have been trapped in the freezing gloom of winter I thought I’d take us all on a virtual getaway to the boho chic vacation home, Casa Tiba. I can feel the warm breeze as I lie by the pool and know that the cool, stylish interiors are only a few steps away.

Sunshine on the water

Another stunning home from the Luxe Houses stable. Stylish, light filled rooms overlooking the Pittwater at Palm Beach. (I recognise this beautiful home as the work of interior designer Justine Hugh-Jones.) Dream holidays are made of this. Friends, family, fabulous house and sunshine sparkling on the water.

Blue and white beachside

Posted on Tue, 6 Dec 2016 by midcenturyjo

There’s something so fresh about a blue and white interior and I love this modern take on a classic look in this Newport Beach renovation by Jeff Trotter Design. From bobbin chairs to Burmese rain drum side tables, from beadboard to blue and white ikat cushions it’s the perfect coastal look for those who like their beachside classic not cliché.

Just because it’s a family home doesn’t mean you can’t have those extra touches, the luxe finishes, the custom cabinetry, the well considered design. Sydney- based multi-disciplinary design studio The Designory gets it just right with this Bronte house. Love the open plan living, the fabulous kitchen, the rumpus room opening to the garden but most of all it’s about the details for me. Did you notice the shoe storage under the custom wardrobes?
