"We opted for a colour palette that eschews the expected coastal bright whites and cool blues for a sophisticated pairing of sun-kissed terracotta ­­and earthy khaki with judicious accents of soft blues and greens ... Fun, youthful and relaxed, the home sparks joy for its inhabitants and visitors, but above all it is a practical family home where function is paramount."

Definitely not your clichéd beach house or Brutalist concrete bunker this Palm Beach, Sydney home takes both styles and turns them on their heads. PLAYA House by Hugh-Jones Mackintosh.

“The house was inspired by New England cottage style, a nod to the coastal homes built on this boulevard in the 1930s. Our goal was to bring back that charm and create a warm, family friendly environment without sacrificing an elegant edge. With no exposed drywall throughout the house, we placed focus on materiality decorative lighting, and collectible design elements.”

With an emphasis on the artisan and vintage this beach house is unique and packed with personality. Beautifully curated and sourced it certainly isn’t a clichéd interpretation of coastal living but a celebration of place and space. Ponte Vedra by Miami-based Bunsa Studio.

A new build waterside escape in Louisiana

Posted on Thu, 16 Mar 2023 by KiM

This new build was designed as a waterside escape for its owners and a place for them to gather with their family and friends. Working with Watters Architecture to create an intimately-scaled home that could flex from being used by two as a cozy retreat to housing large groups, we turned to a classic center hall design with a primary suite wing and multiple bunk rooms on the upper level. A dreamy oak clad office space, acting as a bridge between the main house and primary wing, doubles as a private sitting room for the owners when the house is full of guests. This Louisiana camp required a dose of vernacular design, but an upbringing familiar with East Coast summer homes inspired shiplap walls, nautical touches, and a dose of nostalgia. Our clients’ sophisticated and well traveled taste brought in a layer of Mediterranean elements and African decor, creating a relaxing, cool, and down right fun place to play on the water or kick up your feet.
Cottage living at its finest! And the kitchen is as cute as can be. Another wonderful project by the talented Logan Killen Interiors. (Architect: Watters Architecture; Contractor: JB Design Build; Photographer: Jacqueline Marque)

Cabo San Lucas

Luxury living by the sea at Cabo San Lucas by Chicago-based interior designer Sasha Adler. It’s about layers of textures, a carefully curated mix of vintage and bespoke pieces, exquisite attention to detail and a sense of fun, of generosity, of welcoming family and guests. The interiors blend effortlessly with outdoor spaces all the while celebrating that view. At the same time private rooms provide respite from the go go go of partying.

Forest House

Posted on Thu, 27 Oct 2022 by KiM

I found the perfect little vacation cottage Airbnb. Located in Tiny, Ontario and just a few minutes from Balm Beach. Forest House sleeps 6, has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, a gorgeous kitchen, and is located on an acre with a stream. The decor is casual and chic and frankly pretty elevated for Ontario cottage expectations. LOVE this. Design: Stay Here. Photos: Lauren Miller.
