Fresh & Modern Australian Style

Modern Australian Beach Style

Get The Look

Open for Inspection!
You’re invited to soak up the sunshine in this bright and calming family bungalow, 
only minutes from Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

This modern Australian home located in the beachside suburb of Bondi is fresh, modern and light filled. The interior of this renovated four bedroom 1930s Californian bungalow has a refreshing beachy look, crisp and white with splashes of color + great views overlooking a lush garden.

The furniture has a retro sixties influence with a Scandinavian twist. 
The Nook sofa by Jardan, featured in the living room, is my current go-to fave.  
I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Coastal Style ~ A New Look

A new look Coastal Style

I have been working very hard behind the scenes
on giving Coastal Style a fresh, new look.
Bigger images, more original content,
and more of my own photography.
New pages have been added which feature
a tour of my beach house,
my favourite dishes and recipes as well
 photos from around the house.
I am hoping it makes the blog ~
more creative, personal and unique.

The daily blog will focus more on interior design and decorating.

I love photography, styling, decorating and cooking ~
so the new style and content reflects my passion for all these things combined.
I hope you enjoy it that little bit more!

Boho Beach Girl


Boho Beach Girl



This summer I'll be jumping right on board of the global 'boho' trend 
and I'll be tapping into the inner hippie in me!
An easy style to wear and it's a fashion look that really suits living on the coast.
So expect to see me down the beach
in crocheted tops, maxi dresses, leather sandals and shell necklaces!

Pumpkin Pie

The Ultimate Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Cinnamon Butter Graham Cracker Crust
2 cups graham cracker crumbs, finely grinded
3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter (3/4 stick)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch salt
Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Then pour into a pie dish and press down along the bottom and sides of the dish. The crust should be wet enough to hold its place. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 7 minutes.

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Filling
1 can Libbys pumpkin
4 oz cream cheese, room temp. and completley soft
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 can evaporated milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
Whip the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and continue to beat on high, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Continue to beat with the sugar and then add in the pumpkin and the spices. Mix until combines. Pour in the evaporated milk and butter and continue to mix. Pour the pie filling into the crust and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn the oven to 350 degrees, cover the crust with tinfoil so it doesn’t burn and bake for another 20-30 minutes until the center cooked. Let it cool before adding the layer of marshmallow.

Marshmallow Fluff Topping
3 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In an electric mixer with whisk attachment, beat egg whites and cream of tartar together until light and frothy. Slowly add in the two tablespoons sugar and beat until soft peaks form. So fun.
2. In a small saucepan, combine 1/3 cup water, corn syrup and remaining 2/3 cups sugar. Place over medium heat and cook until boiling. Cook and stir until mixture has been boiling for about 6 minutes or until it reaches 242 to 248 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat.
3. With the mixer on low, slowly add the syrup mixture to the egg whites. Increase mixture speed to high and continue beating for 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla and beat for another minute until mixture looks like marshmallow cream.
Pile the cooled pumpkin pie with marshmallow fluff! Using a torch or broiler, toast the top of the marshmallow until golden brown. Sprinkle on some cinnamon and enjoy!

This recipe totally has my mouth watering!
