Beach House

Australia is surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, so its no wonder that architects are able to draw inspiration and create stunning beach houses such as these!

This unbelievable house in the Whitsundays is made from concrete and travertine, to complement the tropical Queensland heat and rain.

Don't Panic

I can't get my head around the fact that Christmas is fast approaching. I know I say this every year, but my goodness this year has flown! 

Are you a list writer? I am, and I guess that's where I'll start when it comes to planning Christmas this year, one very long, expensive list…

My Weekend

The weather here in Newcastle has been very warm and sunny, a real taste of summer. 

Saturday night was beautiful, my husband and I went for a walk in the evening along Merewether beach, resting for a glass of wine to enjoy the view.

Sunday was very hot. We got up early and went to the Newcastle Farmers Markets. Everything looked delicious, but my daughter and husband can never resist the Dutch pancakes.

I filled my bags with beautiful fruit and veggies and of course some gorgeous flowers and headed home. 

My daughter made this delicious fruit drink using some of the fresh produce from the markets.

Hope you had a beautiful, relaxing weekend. Enjoy the week ahead.

I don't know about you but I'm loving the new look Slides that are available this year.

My daughter recently bought a pair on sale and loves the style and comfort. 

They are quite chunky in design but consequently provide lots of support. 

As simple in design as they are, they seem to work with both casual and more formal wear. 

In fact, there's enough variation in the theme that there's sure to be something for everyone for any occasion!

Have a great day!

A Traditional Kitchen

This Kitchen isn’t huge but it is certainly character filled.  I’m particularly drawn to the fireplace that has been painted in blackboard paint and filled with bookshelves, adding extra storage and helping to create that homely feel this kitchen oozes.

The owners have used patterned wallpaper as the backdrop to their dining area.

Two stainless steel ovens and a warming drawer positioned so the cook doesn’t need to bend, is always a good idea.

The dark granite bench top continues the simple monochrome palette, while the oversized window allows plenty of natural light into the kitchen.

The subway tiles are the perfect choice for this kitchen. They help provide that traditional look created by the cabinetry while still being stylish and hardwearing.
