Love the idea of staying a some of Australia’s best homes with 24-7 concierge service? Want a 5-star hotel experience in the comfort of a private home? I’m in if it means a family getaway to this 5 bedroom property on the beautiful coastal country of Victoria’s south-eastern Mornington Peninsula. The relaxed outdoor lifestyle features a luxurious pool, pizza oven, courtyard and manicured lawns. Inside it’s all about the free flowing open plan. Close to beaches, wineries and bushland we could definitely make a weekend of it. Stokes via LUXICO, the home hotel.
Georgia-based Terracotta Design Build Co. have an absolutely stellar portfolio filled with some of the most beautiful kitchens I’ve ever seen, so I thought I would start off this feature with some of them, and follow those up with other enviable spaces. Each one has design elements that really pop, from bold uses of colour to architectural details and built-ins.
It’s a little slice of heaven. A NYC loft with fabulous bones and an interior by design firm Sissy + Marley. Light floods in through arched windows while oak floors and exposed beams enhance the industrial feel. One moment it’s dramatic, the next serene but always a chic, always inspiring, family home. If luxury loft living in the Big Apple has been a dream of yours I suggest you move towards the light.
Liveable, lasting, light and lush. Relaxed spaces, beautifully soft colour tones, simple yet stunning bathrooms any of which I would kill for (dying to renovate my bathroom it is driving me so crazy with all of its aggravating qualities). These are the works of Los Angeles based Wendy Word Design.
There is nothing like neutral, earthy colours that makes you want to stop, smell the flowers and hug someone. This family-friendly farmhouse in New South Wales, Australia by Cottonwood Interiors is a bit classic American, a bit Scandinavian and just about the coziest home I have seen in a long time. Understated, relaxed yet elegant. Always a winning combination that stands the test of time.
