Relaxed, beachy, simple … and simply beautiful. What’s not to love about this Amagansett beach cottage by NYC and Hamptons based interior designer Marie-Christine McNally of Marie-Christine Design? A neutral colour palette elevated by the use of texture, an eclectic mix of new and old, nothing overly precious or pretentious, just welcoming timeless design perfect for a beach getaway.
“The original house was designed in 1988 by Geoffrey Summerhayes and it was an honour to renovate and give the build a second life. Our clients, a family of 4, with two grown up children loved the layout and feel of their home, but wanted to modernise the spaces, while respecting the original architecture. We aspired to achieve a sophisticated aesthetic with casual undertones. The original house had been repainted a deep ochre and had taken on a Tuscan feel. Our proposed palette sought to enhance the original architectural elements and reform the overall experience.”

I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home.? Link here while it lasts.

Still dreaming of travelling outside of Australia. I think our borders will be closed for quite some time. It’s great to have some sense of security in these trying times but it doesn’t stop my mind wandering to distant lands … or in this case not so distant. Time for a little virtual getaway to Casa Palma in Canggu, Bali. Simple, uncomplicated holiday style.
Textured, collected, chic. Restrained, harmonious, timeless and modern, relaxed yet refined. Understated elegance by San Francisco based Leverone Design.
