Port Douglas Vacation | Part 2

Aqua Resort Story

Sunshine State

Here are some more photos from last week's holiday to Port Douglas.
The weather was a perfect 29 degrees, the water was warm and the sun was shining.
If you are up that way and looking for some good restaurants you are really spoilt for choice ~
but here's a few of my favourite ones :-
Salsa, Zinc, Watergate and On the Inlet.
I ate seafood every night and was totally indulged with first class dining.
I put on a few kilos but it was well worth it!
I feel very lucky to have such great holiday destinations in Australia.

Port Douglas Vacation | Part 1




Pink Resort Wardrobe

Tropical Paradise

When I turned fifty back in March, my gorgeous and very generous parents
shouted us a trip to Port Douglas for a week.
We just got back last week and I must say
I am feeling very refreshed and relaxed.
We stayed at our usual haunt, the Sheraton Mirage,
and had the most superb holiday, 10 out of 10.
We walked along Four Mile beach, relaxed by the pool,
drank cocktails and ate the most amazing food.
My parents joined us for 3 nights so we had a lot of fun
indulging at the Sheraton's famous seafood buffet!
The Sheraton has just undergone a 43 million dollar makeover
and they have done an incredible job of bringing
what was once a tired looking hotel back to its former glory.
If you heading up that way I couldn't recommend it enough.

For more resort photos check out tomorrow's post.

Mood Indigo





Indigo Crush

Bohemian style crush

I'm loving this mini trend that I am seeing for summer
of moody indigo blue in tie dye and bohemian prints.
Not only is it popping up on my radar in swimwear, sarongs, summer dresses and separates
but I'm seeing it in cushion covers and bedlinen. 
It's a great look for a beach house and it looks super sharp
when teamed back with crisp whites, warm timber, textured lighting
and a few boho or Moroccan accessories.
The lovely homewares featured above are from Shakiraz Designs.

A Summer House in Ibizia




Ibizia style








Natural, rustic style

This lovely summer home is located in Las Salinas, a natural park on the island of Ibiza. Designed primarily as a family holiday home, emphasis has been put on the outdoor areas to make the most of the summer months. The house, inspired by the traditional Balearic architecture, is decorated in a natural, rustic style with mainly natural materials and colors. The floor layout is simple and practical. By using the same materials and finishes throughout the house all spaces are integrated. When I see homes like this it reminds me of the beauty of simplicity. It looks like a great place to relax and unwind!

Bright & Breezy Californian Style

Californian Cool

A Peek into Two Roommates’ Sunny Santa Monica Home

Jillian Attaway and Allison Norton have been best friends for 20 years, so when given the opportunity to live together after graduation, they jumped at the chance. To say they nailed the laid-back California vibe is an understatement. Their sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom home exudes charm and a sense of quirkiness. They managed to combine Jillian's preppy and sophisticated East Coast style with Allison's beach-inspired, modern sensibility to create a warm and welcoming space. I love the pretty pastel accents, the fifties-style bar cart and the bright yellow surfboard casually propped up against the wall in the living room.
