Bohemian Style






 


boho style


Today my inner hippie self is out on show!

Not only is the bohemian look totally on trend ~
it is also a very affordable way to decorate.
A great look for a beach house rental or
a low budget makeover.
The end result will be colourful, upbeat, 
eclectic and inviting ...
but won't break the bank.

Mellow Yellow











There's nothing like a splash of yellow 
to bring a little sunshine into the house 
and lift your spirits!

Summer Pastels




 


Summer Pastels 2



I love colourful interiors ~ especially in a beach house.

A weekender or a beach house should embody the holiday spirit
and have a sense of fun about it.

However, I also think it's important to control the colour
so it doesn't feel hectic, overwhelming or mismatched. 

 Sticking to a maximum of 2 or 3 highlight colours
against a backdrop of white or neutrals is always a safe bet.

These pretty sorbet shades look a treat in a summer.

Island In The Sun





tropical style




 


 


With everyone around me escaping the winter chill
and heading off on holidays,
I am starting to get a tad jealous!
I know I am behaving like a spoilt brat
as I've just bought myself my dream house
 and you would think I would be contented ~
but when it's blowing a gale outside and
the rain is pelting on the windows,
my mind drifts off to tropical islands,
sunshine and golden beaches.

A Splash Of Hot Pink










I am a bit of a girly girl
so the colour pink sets my heart racing.
Not really a colour that comes to mind when decorating a beach house ~
but I have still managed to squeeze a healthy dose of it into the new house.
It's a great colour to brighten up your holiday wardrobe
or add a bit of fun to a table setting.

Palm Beach with a Touch of Scandi




Another beautiful Beach House to start the week, what about this glorious renovated Fisherman’s cottage on NSW’s Northern Beaches…

It's full of natural light, organic materials and interesting textures.

The unique art really sets the palette of this gorgeous bedroom




Simple and classic bathroom




Loads of white is balanced by the natural timber




I adore this blackboard look!  One for the style file!




Even the children are beautiful!!

Aqua Days










 


Aqua is my favourite summer colour.

It's so fresh, cool and bright
instantly lifting my sprits.
It's the perfect colour for
a summer wardrobe and 
decorating a beach house.
It's also such an inviting colour
for a dip in the pool or a swim in the ocean.
