Wake me up when Monday is over. No go away. I’m serious. I want to stay under the covers and slip back into my dream. The one where I live in a small but perfectly formed beach house in Portugal. Simple and stylish, layers of texture and colours of the sea. A wonderful dream where there are never any Mondays, never any Mondayitis. A dream designed by Vera Iachia of course.
It’s rustic and earthy, colourful and casually chic. Can simple and stylish be seriously sexy? I’m daydreaming of bikinis and bare feet, too much rosé at lunch and a long siesta with my lover (don’t tell my husband). A beach cabana by Portuguese interior designer Vera Iachia. Summer time and the living is easy.
Come with me. Take my hand and runaway to a holiday home just metres from the beach in Comporta, Portugal. Casa Do Pego sits lightly on the sand, its face turned to nearby agricultural land. Sliding shuttersprovide shelter from the setting sun while a roof top terrace and pool let you chill out in privacy. Clean, minimal lines are perfect for a beachside retreat while the suspended fireplace provides the wow factor. Go on. I know you want to come with me. It’s the perfect cure for Mondayitis.
A casually elegant family retreat at Palm Beach, Sydney by Adelaide Bragg & Associates. Hues of blue and green like the ever changing ocean, organic textures and crisp white finishes update this 1950’s home. Beautiful, relaxed and classic.
I’m stalking cool today. From its childlike “house” shape to its oak and concrete combo, this home at Barwon Heads, Victoria is colourful, fun and all about modern family living. Love the kitchen, the living dining room, the alfresco decks and who would not want their own skate ramp. Told you it was cool! Link here while it lasts.
