A Cottage in Denmak


Danish Summer Cottage


The owners of this cottage live and work in Singapore but when the school holidays start they pack up their bags and travel to Denmark to spend summer at their holiday house. The family of five have being living abroad for years now but their Danish home on the north coast of the Danish island of Zealand is where their heart lies.

I love the contrast of the wide chocolate floorboards against the crisp white timber walls. This summer house is a welcoming mix of cosy lounging spaces, eclectic pieces picked up on their travels and contemporary joinery. It has a relaxed style that looks like a great place to unwind and get back in touch with nature. The green Thai triangular massage cushion is a nice quirky touch and looks like a good place to sit and read in the afternoon sun.

PS : Notice the grass growing on the roof... don't you just love that!

The Italian Dream


Glamour Vacation

Feeling inspired by George Clooney's wedding in Venice
I was thinking how lovely it would be if I was somewhere in Italy right now ~
 a glass of chilled, white wine in hand!

I would love to be sitting on a sun drenched balcony overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean sea. Nothing to do except soak up the sun, relax, read and eat. When I get bored of doing that then I might get more adventurous and take a boat trip or a bike ride and see some of the sights.

Slow Coasting



Weekends are all about kicking back and relaxing,
winding things back and taking it easy.
Beach walks, fun with friends, time to do the things you love,
good food and a few glasses of wine 
puts work and play back into perspective and 
it makes you realise what's really important in life!

Lemon & Lime



Lemon & Lime

Loving the fresh and zesty combination of lemon and lime.
These summertime treats look like the perfect solution to a hot summer's day ... 
and so easy to make!
Bursting with tangy, citrus flavours
they are sure to keep everyone cool and happy!

Pamela Makin - Les Interiors

Global textures 


If you share my love of an organic, natural and textural aesthetic then you will probably be familiar with the work of Sydney’s doyenne of interior chic, Pamela Makin. Her stunning ocean view home on Sydney’s northern beaches has featured in countless magazines around the world. Here is a sneak peak into her new look design studio and concept store Les Interieurs.

The store is covered head to toe in lashings of pristine white to create a fresh, light filled space. The palette is anchored with a strong use of dramatic black accents, timber furniture and metal framed over sized mirrors to exude drama, sophistication and intrigue. I love her global mix of one off eclectic pieces. I can't wait to get up to Sydney and check it out for myself.

Paradise Dreaming




Today I'm in the need for a little escapism.
The weather is looking a bit grim outside.
Unfinished projects are piling up on my desk.
The studio is looking like a disaster zone with plans and samples all over the place.
 The housework and the laundry have been sadly neglected.

I think it might be time for a holiday!
