It’s a holiday where I live. A three day weekend to get away, relax, rewind. The Cape Beach House designed by Uneek Interior Solutions in the Northern New South Wales coastal town of Byron Bay is a stylish bed and breakfast redolent of that laid-back sun, sand and surfing riff. Unfortunately the border between Queensland and New South Wales is closed and although this fab beach house is only a couple of hours away for now I’ll have to daydream of a future stay.

You don’t need to buy a new home to get your dream kitchen. If you can work with the space you have, like Bay Area designer Nicola Salceda of Eye For Pretty?did here for her clients, then you might have a winner and you don’t have to move!?This space required a complete rework to enlarge the kitchen area. We worked alongside Diablo Luxury Builders, turning the family room into a space housing the new kitchen, office, and bar and opening the dining room to the new living space. We gutted each room then installed new hardwood floors, cabinetry, lighting, and other furnishings. In the guest bath, an update was needed to keep the flow of light and bright, while anchored with black details for interest.

I am smitten with the designs of Belgian architect Pieter Vandenhout. Minimal in details but the details he does add (like statement windows and textured walls and wide plank floors) make such a statement. The kitchen below went straight into my inspiration folder. A kitchen that doesn’t look like a kitchen is everything.
Are you dreaming of an overseas getaway? I know I am. Sadly the international borders are closed so a dream it will remain … for now. In the meantime this fabulous Bali holiday home will provide all the inspiration I need. The perfect retreat from an imperfect world. By design and artisan collective My Shrine Interiors.
