With a predicted mid-winter temperature this weekend of a beautiful 22° Celcius you could be forgiven that 28 Degrees Byron Bay is named for the balmy days year round. It’s actually the degrees latitude south of the equator for this coastal hotspot on the northern coastline of New South Wales. It’s time for a virtual getaway in a perfect oasis in a perfect part of the world. Don’t pack too much. It’s casual yet of so stylish resort town. Just don’t forget your swimmers.
A creative use of colour sets this house at Rehoboth Beach apart from others. Classic with a little touch of boho, eclectic and casually elegant, definitely traditional with a twist. By Alexandria, Virginia based Crosby Designs.
A cursory glance at this Southampton’s house with its gabled roof line and greying shingles might lead you to expect an interior chock full of blue and white patterns, white painted furniture, sisal rugs on whitewashed floors and driftwood chandeliers. Perhaps some chrome and glass lantern style lighting and a sizeable collection of Chinese urns. Open the door to this house and you’re in for quite a surprise. Statement designer furniture from the 60s to the 80s, modern art, colour, metal and lucite. It’s like a well curated 1stdibs dealer’s showroom and you know what? It works. Fun, fabulous, personality packed, the perfect place to retreat to if your idea of Hamptons style is more style than “Hamptons”. Waterfront Estate by Frampton Co.
Take me away to a life in the Caribbean. To a holiday house that puts a smile on my face. Holiday house? Hell no I’d want to live there all year round. I’m loving this home on the Abacos in The Bahamas by Denton House Design Studio. Calm waters, warm breezes and water views forever and a fabulous fun house.
“Bold colored fabrics and finishes used in this island styled Baker’s Bay vacation home in the Bahamas made the perfect place to getaway. With deep stained wood floors and beach inspired prints, the design echoes the lush landscape outside. Our clients loved bright and bold so we really went for it in their space. Using white as a backdrop to all the color was the key to keeping this sophisticated, yet fun.”
Last month I featured an edgy loft by interior designer Lukas Machnik and thought I would share another of his projects. This time the scene is quite different. A house on the beach in California is given a modern yet earthy with lots of creams, wood and black accents. Some mid-century modern classics are a reminder that this isn’t your average beach house. My favourite elements are the dining table and benches that he designed. Gorgeous!!
