If a genie ever granted me three wishes I think it would be a hard toss up between a cure for COVID-19, world peace, a solution for global warming and a stylish pied-à-terre in Paris. Actually it would be a fight between a cure for COVID-19, world peace and a solution for global warming for the last two spots. A pied-à-terre in Paris is a given ;P I think I might just take this one by Gaspard Ronjat Interiors and Design.
I say it week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish … or in this case very, very pretty. Sonia Boyajian Studio & Showroom by Studio Shamshiri.

“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.”
From outdated faux Tuscan to fabulous monochromatic minimalism. The Villa Renovation in Peppermint Grove, Perth by LAHAUS.
“The Burrows has been a labour of love and is filled with an eclectic mix of treasures, bespoke finds and original artworks, some handed down through family and others sourced and collected by the couple from auctions, markets and salvage yards.”
This modest historic cottage with views over Freycinet and the Hazards is the perfect getaway on the rugged coastline on the east coast of Tasmania. As one reviewer put it “This is a place for lovers. Or couples, or old friends, or lovers of nature. But mostly for lovers.” And don’t we all need a little love these days.

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.
