Relaxed and understated with a colour palette as soft as the sands that surround it. A nod to Scandinavian mid century classics but as unpretensious as a worn wooden table. A complete renovation of a Danish summer house that allows for modern living but reconnects the home with its past. DM Beach House in North Zealand, Denmark by London-based Pernille Lind Studio.

I love the warm, relaxed and uplifting feels this weekend home in Southampton exudes. Without being tongue in cheek beachy, the decor by designer Meg Braff was kept light with tropical pastels and such beautiful patterns throughout.
“Gracing the edge of Port Phillip Bay, this coastal haven exudes a sense of seclusion, comfort and relaxation. Simple forms and restrained materials nod to holiday homes of the past.”
Pared back and beautiful. Soft yet hard. Private yet open. It’s not your typical beach getaway. Sorrento Beach House by Pandolfini Architects.

It’s fabulous to be back blogging in a new year. Here’s to 2022 being so much better and brighter than last year. I couldn’t think of a better home to start off the year than this apartment above a shop … but not just any shop. It’s Barracuda Interiors showroom in the sea side town of Comporta, Portugal. Think relaxed beachy vibe with natural materials, old found pieces and the occasional pop of colour against a bleached out colour palette. The perfect holiday getaway or imagine being lucky enough to enjoy it year round.
“This home is equal parts Art as it is home. Every detail was thought through and features a high level of expertise and artistry … We focused on form and complementing textures. Structural evergreens and perennials fade into drifts of grasses that move with surrounding ocean winds. The feature trees echo this textural interest and form; peeling bark maple and white birch.”
In the drama of life by the beach is this house the star and the garden just the supporting cast? I think we might have to make more room on the theatre marquee because there are two leading ladies in this production and things will only get better with time.
