STAY COOL

As much as sunny summer days are lovely, the thought of 40+ temperatures (104+F) in the coming summer make me want to emigrate to Scotland. HOWEVER, as we are yet to reach such extremes (it is pouring down here in Melbourne), i can still enjoy the finer aspects that an Australian summer shall offer. 

So when i saw this amazing house (and garden and owners) on The Design Files, all the lovely sunny summer emotions swept over me. I LOVE THIS PLACE! I love how it seems to exude coolness (both in temperature and in character). I couldn't imagine that anyone living in those blue and white rooms could ever suffer from heat exhaustion!

And the garden is such a lovely combination of refreshing greenery, crisp sunlight and cooling white. 

I work close to where this couple live, so i may just be knocking on their door come the scorching heat of February, begging them to let me stay. Seriously. 

Enjoy.



As someone who is on the market for a nice outside dining setting, i can honestly say that this one is the best i've seen! If only IKEA sold it...


I love patterned tiles in kitchens. None of that boring glass splashback crap!


I'm thinking Jerry Seinfeld's parents condo in Florida!


How amazing is this vanity?!



Gah! Love!


Mr. and Mrs. Kagan. Too cute!
