One more from Sydney-based Decus Interiors because … well I just can’t get enough of their intelligent, curated, simply beautiful homes. Killcare House is a dramatic home away from home on the edge of a national park by the sea. What more could you want?

If you look closely this Tamarama Beach apartment is actually light, bright and very white but it’s the colourful pops of artwork and accessories that amp up that holiday feel. Oh and let’s not forget the view. Nothing says Aussie beach getaway more than an endless ocean view and a scurry across hot asphalt to get to the sand on a summer’s day.

A joyous play on colour and pattern, vinatge and new, this MacMasters Beach home by Sydney-based Brett Mickan Interior Design is definitely not your typical beach house. Oh the clichéd nautical and fish motifs may make an appearance here and there but their presence is a tongue-in-cheek reference to holiday living by the sea. This house is all about family fun in the Aussie sun with a nod to your grandparents’ beach shack from the 60s combined with modern, casual living.
Yesterday I stalked a multi-million dollar house on Sydney’s Pittwater, all black and glass and steel. It was fabulous no doubt but I’ll let you into a secret. I’m a simple girl who likes simple things, beautiful, simple things I admit. If I had the choice between spending the weekend in yesterday’s mansion or today’s fibro shack I think I’d choose this Little Black Shack. Simple. I mean look at that view!
It’s a dream I’ve always harboured. An unpretentious beachside house, comfortable with an almost spartan beauty… almost. I would always have room for a found object or a time worn piece. A short walk to a wind swept beach. The sound of waves ever present like a heartbeat of a simple life. A home to be alone and a home to share with family and friends. A house a little something like this. The Grey House Camber via Light Locations.
