Summer Days in Orange








 





Loving this pop of colour!

Make the most of summer in vibrant shades of orange.
Give summer stripes a playful twist in orange.
Give summer recipes some extra zing with citrus flavours and
head to the beach in a burst of colour.

Banana Leaf Decor











Tropical Vibe

 

Hot for Tropical

Despite the fact I live by the beach year round,
 when I go on holiday I still want to be by the beach.
The only difference being is that I want to go somewhere hot and tropical,
when it's cold and wintery here.
So why not bring a bit of the holiday vibe to your home all year round
with these banana leaf prints and lush tropical plants.

Loving Rustic Timbers

Reclaimed Wood



Reclaimed Love

There is great beauty in imperfection!

Here is a collection of some beautiful and interesting examples of rustic and recyled timber.
There are infinite, creative uses for relaimed wood -
from something as simple as a light bulb holder, a stool or a mirror
to more complex, architectural details like wooden staircases and framework.
I love those recycled timber beams in the first image
they just add so much warmth, interest and charcter to that home.

A secluded island escape in the Bahamas.

Harbour Island has been a long time secluded getaway for the jet set crowd that includes the likes of Diane von Furstenberg, Elle Macpherson, and Bill Gates. Part of it's attraction is it's remoteness - it is only accessible by water taxi from the island of Eleuthera. The other part of its allure is it's pink sand beaches, colonial style architecture and golf cart only policy.

One of the standout residences on Harbour island is this seaside retreat designed by interior designer Alessandra Branca. I love the bold and unexpected palette of pink, cherry red and coral to compliment the pink hued beaches that the house overlooks. The overall effect is warm and inviting with it's driftwood timber panelling, coral accents, wicker furniture and seaside decor. I think I would feel right at home in this pretty, tropical escape!

Summer In Pink












Magical Summer Days

Summer is that time of the year when your most prized posession
 are the extra daylight hours to spend how you choose.
I leap out of bed in the morning, draw back the curtains and
open the louvre windows to let in the sea breeze.
Our days are spent soaking up the sunshine at the beach
or hanging out on our deck.
 We spend our evenings sprawled out in the living room
playing endless board games 
and our weekends are filled having barbeques with friends and neighbours.
At night we fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves and the hum of cicadas.
It's a simple life, but one that fills me with joy!
