A beautiful weekender for family and friends to gather together. Light, bright and calm. I’m imagining those long drapes fluttering in a stiff sea breeze. Reclaimed timber, tan leather, industrial hardware and white canvas. Perfect. Pony Stone by Melbourne-based interior atelier Sally Caroline.
It’s that time in Australia where winter skies are the brightest blue and the days warm enough to believe that winter might just be over. Doors thrown open, water views that sparkle, days that lengthen, promises of summer fun made. I can’t think of a better place to farewell winter, embrace spring and dream of a long, long summer than this beautiful Vaucluse, Sydney house with the charming name of Bohemia.

Hubert Zandberg, one of my favourite designers for about as long as this blog has existed, was tasked with creating a Mediterranean melting pot for his client’s holiday home. He combined a paired-back blue and white colour scheme with a plethora of neutral textures and earthy elements. The mix of locally sourced finishes, bespoke furniture and vintage finds resulted in a relaxed home for the family to refuel in a spectacular setting – Torre Vedra, Ibiza. It is so serene and welcoming.
I’m daydreaming … again. A beach house somewhere exotic, well at least exotic to me. Somewhere simple but stylish, relaxed and beautiful. A house where bare feet are de rigueur as are long lunches with friends, dips in the pool, walks by the ocean. A house with natural finishes and layers of texture and a monochrome palette. A house in the dunes in Comporta, Portugal by Isabelle Stanislas.
