Australians know where to escape on their holidays. Our number one vacation destination is Bali. Beautiful island, beautiful people and beautiful accommodation. As you drag yourself through this hump day Wednesday I give to you the fabulous eye candy that is Villa Massilia, a tropical compound of 3 villas in the beach resort of Seminyak. Daydreaming in front of your work computer can begin now … unless you are lucky enough to make the journey to this slice of heaven in real life. I’m checking availability right now.

Contemporary by the sea with a mid century vibe taken to the next level with terracotta floors, limewashed ceilings, concrete accents and Oblica fireplace. Add in the bold art works and on point furnishings and this is one cool beach shack in Jan Juc on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Unfortunately for us it has been quickly snapped up. Link here while it lasts.
This modern extension to an Edwardian era house has resulted in something very special. Think contemporary sculpture meets colour blocking, new connections between inside and out and restraint versus drama. The Oak House (named for the mature oak that dominates the site) by Melbourne based Kennedy Nolan.
