Serene spaces by Jaime Zehner

Posted on Fri, 18 Jun 2021 by KiM

Serenity now! These spaces by Jaime Zehner of JZ Interior Designs are so relaxing and serene. California casual is her scene and I’m digging it. A bit Scanid, rustic, beachy…. perfect for warm weather living.

A modern tropical East Hampton beach house

This modern beach house in East Hampton is tons of fun. Loaded with tropical colours and wallpaper, it is coastal vacationing with a chic, graphic twist. Such uplifting energy in these spaces. Designed by Ghislaine Viñas. (Photos: Jaime Viñas & Mick Hales)

Stylish by the sea

Not too many photos but more than enough to let me know that this Jupiter Island house by architect firm Thomas Melhorn with interiors by Betsy Brown is not your ordinary beachside home. Stylish and sophisticated yet relaxed and welcoming. Just right for getaways or even better for a forever home.

Sophisticated seaside living

Posted on Wed, 12 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“With incredible views towards the southern wild ocean and northern views to the enclosed and stunning pool lawn and flourishing vegetable garden, we wanted to create an ‘Australian’ villa in the landscape by the sea. Internally, we aspired to creating spaces rather than surface, creating atmosphere rather than rooms; creating both a generosity of spirit and serenity as a background for happy family life.”

As stunning as its rugged setting this sophisticated contemporary beach house is definitely no shack with its expansive views through large glass windows, open plan living and a sheltered oasis of a garden behind. Flinders House by Melbourne-based Susi Leeton.

A dark and modern waterfront weekend home

Posted on Wed, 5 May 2021 by KiM

Dartk and moody, modern and minimalist. Blurring the lines between outdoors and indoors. This weekend home is designed to maximise water views while accommodating a low maintenance, single story layout. The spaces within the house are arranged around a central courtyard which not only acts as a physical separation between the guest wing and public areas but allows views of the water for every room. All of the building materials, charred wood siding, zinc metal and exposed concrete, require little maintenance and age gracefully over time. These materials reflect the owner’s desire for a home that will blend within the landscape and provide a relaxing retreat from the city. Architect: Adam Jordan. Photos: Eric Petschek.
