The Aussie Beach Shack












When it comes to designing a beach house I like to mix old with new, designer pieces with Ikea bargains and I like to borrow ideas from across the globe. In the same room I might mix Asian and African artefacts with Scandinavian furniture, and if I'm lucky it will all appear harmonious and balanced like it was meant to be! I also like using interesting pieces collected from the beach and sand dunes. Treasures found in nature such as ... shells, branches, stones, feathers, old fishing rods, cane lobster pots, fishing floats, driftwood and vintage boat oars ... all make great displays.
