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.
“A Mediterranean oasis in tropical paradise.”
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.
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.
Textured, collected, chic. Restrained, harmonious, timeless and modern, relaxed yet refined. Understated elegance by San Francisco based Leverone Design.
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.
