Spring Flowers


Celebrate Spring

As the days get longer and sunlight dances on the windows,
throw the house open to let the sea breezes blow away the winter chill.
Mow the lawns, tidy the garden
and clean the windows until they sparkle!
Whip around with a mop, bucket and broom
until everthing is shining.
Then fill the house with the frangrance and beauty
of fresh cut flowers and you will feel truly happy!

A Hamptons style makeover...

This gracious, renovated six bedroom Queenslander represents the culmination of a long-held dream for one family. The two-level circa-1920s property was bought by Kylie and Brett while they were still living in a rented flat in Hong Kong.“It had a good feel, the right number of bedrooms, a great verandah, tennis court, pool and enough grounds without being too much,” says Kylie. “And it was in good condition, so it was just a matter of tweaking a few things to make it exactly what we wanted.” After a redesign by Derek Trebilcock of Trebilcock & Associates Architects, the house is now the perfect Hamptons-style home for the couple and their four children. It's fresh, classic and light-filled. I love the marble counter tops in combination with the rustic, wooden floors hand-glazed tiles.

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather has arrived!

Baby it's cold outside!

When it's too bleak, snowy or rainy to venture outdoors then settle in for the afternoon with hot chocolates, a deck of cards, board games and the Sunday papers. Nap on the sofa, sink your toes into a shag pile rug and curl up with a good book in your favourite armchair by the fire. Nesting has never been so good!

Bohemian White

Bohemian Rhapsody


Bohemian White by Coastal Style Blog

BoHo Vibe

Today I am channeling my inner bohemian self
with this dreamy boho inspiration in shades of white!
To capture a little of the boho spirit at home
hang up a dream catcher or a juju hat,
then mix in some Moroccan pieces with exotic treasures from faraway places,
layer up rugs and cushions
and then complete the look with scented candles and incense.
