White and wood and sea

Posted on Wed, 19 Oct 2011 by midcenturyjo

I couldn’t think of a more beautiful place to live. The solidity of the white home facing a relentless grey sea. Timbers aged the colour of the waves and sky. Simple furnishings and fittings belie the everyday luxury. Just enough of everything to make life sweet and always that view taking your breath away. Martin Gómez Arquitectos… again. South American design is blowing me away at the moment. Simply stunning. La Aduana, La Barra, Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Honeymoon

Posted on Fri, 29 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

It’s my niece’s wedding tomorrow. I thought I’d give her a virtual honeymoon. Of course I went to Welcome Beyond to find the perfect boutique hotel. How about Ratua Private Island? Seriously sexy. Seriously simple. Seriously the perfect spot for the perfect honeymoon. Congratulations Jane and Chris! You’ll just need to pack some swimmers, sarong and maybe a t-shirt?

Beach stalking 2

Posted on Tue, 12 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

You know those movie scenes where the recently deceased turns up at the Pearly Gates in Heaven, clouds misting, dressed in white, met by St Peter, harps playing, big gates swinging open? This is what is on the other side of those gates when the clouds divide. Noosa in Queensland at its outrageous Noosa holiday house best. All that is needed to enjoy this house is a colourful bikini and a killer body and lots of ice for the drinks. Maybe I get a killer body when I die. Link for the sale listing here while it lasts.

Beach stalking 1

Posted on Mon, 11 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

Monday morning has come and gone in Australia (I’m always 14 hours ahead of Kim) and I had a severe case of Monday-itis. I must have suspected that that would be the case when I loaded pictures for my posts for the week on Sunday (yes I was that organised). I’ve been stalking seaside resorts. I think I needed to wake up in this Pearl Beach house. Only meters from the beach north of Sydney it comprises 2 pavilions combined by an outdoor dining area. Looks like plenty of room for everyone else suffering from Monday-itis. We could start a support group… on Tuesday. Link here while it lasts. P.S. The real estate blurb says it belongs to an interior designer. Any idea who?

Reader’s home in Cabo San Lucas

Posted on Sat, 2 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

We had so many great readers’ homes in lately that I just had to share on a Saturday. Vikki recently purchased a piece of paradise in Cabo San Lucas and wanted to share with tease Desire to Inspire readers. What a beautiful holiday spot, the endless blue of the Sea of Cortez and a great renovation by Vikki! Just a taste here but you can see all the befores and afters on her blog My House, My Garden. Casa Cielo is available to stay but would you ever want to leave. I think I’d just laze by that pool forever. Let’s take in the view before moving inside after the jump.
