“The Burrows has been a labour of love and is filled with an eclectic mix of treasures, bespoke finds and original artworks, some handed down through family and others sourced and collected by the couple from auctions, markets and salvage yards.”
This modest historic cottage with views over Freycinet and the Hazards is the perfect getaway on the rugged coastline on the east coast of Tasmania. As one reviewer put it “This is a place for lovers. Or couples, or old friends, or lovers of nature. But mostly for lovers.” And don’t we all need a little love these days.

I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home. Link here while it lasts.
I am smitten with the designs of Belgian architect Pieter Vandenhout. Minimal in details but the details he does add (like statement windows and textured walls and wide plank floors) make such a statement. The kitchen below went straight into my inspiration folder. A kitchen that doesn’t look like a kitchen is everything.
A home with beautiful architecture calls for beautiful decor. The neutral colour palette, sumptuous furnishings, and a mix of old and new make this home very easy on the eye. Classy yet cozy and warm. Another project by Indianapolis firm Haus Love Interiors.
Quality over quantity, less is more, functionality as well as beauty. Houston- based interior designer Jill Egan Interiors may hold these as her design mantras but these sophisticated and chic spaces prove more than anything that beauty reigns supreme.
