Sometimes a spectacular view can all but overwhelm any attempt to decorate a room. Either the room pales in comparison or the view and the room fight each other to the death. Definitely not the case in this harbourside home in Sydney by EB Interiors. A palette of moody blues, an emphasis on strong contemporary lines and bespoke joinery provide the stage for the subtle textures and pops of colour from soft furnishings and wallpaper.
What a fabulous beach house designed by Threshold Interiors! This Jersey Shore Craftsman is so pleasing to the eye with lots of fun touches like graphic floor tile (and fireplace surround), wallpaper (love that Farrow & Ball Aranami pattern in the bathroom), and the bathrooms are absolutely stunning. And what about this kitchen!! Subway tile, copper, and pale grey cabinets make it timeless and polished.
Thursday – the sad forgotten sister of Friday. No one ever yells “Thank God it’s Thursday”. No one ever counts down the last few hours until after work drinks or the freedom of the weekend. Thursday is a plod-along day, a “let’s get it over so we can go to sleep and yell TGIF the next morning” sort of day. So here is my Thursday gift to you, a virtual escape to brighten up the stolid workaday. Tamarind Beach at Paradise Cove, a compound of three houses (for vacation rental) in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu. A sophisticated taste of island life steps from crystal blue waters and coral reefs. This is one virtual getaway I wish I could make in real life.

Today’s daydream involves a cool drink by the pool then a saunter through the stylish rooms of this house in the south by Madrid-based design firm Melián Randolph. Mediterranean chic.
I’m like a spoilt child. If I see something I like then I want what I see. Please mummy can I have a beach hut right on the beach? Just meters from the water? Pleeeeeeaaaase. Except I’d want sand not shingle but you can’t have it all. Beach House by Studiomama.
