This Oxford home is what country living dreams are made of. An absolute beauty inside and out. Much of the furnishings are quite traditional but if you look a little closer you will spot details that are a bit more current, which makes me love this even more. Designed by VSP Interiors.
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.
I love living in the subtropics. Here it is all about blurring the edges between indoors and out, expanding living spaces when the weather is warm and inviting but being able to close up and hunker down if things turn inclement. This house in the Brisbane suburb of Bulimba by DAHA is the perfect example. The alterations and additions revolve around a central coutrtyard opening up the public spaces to the views and the breezes.
