Clipped Coastal Paradise

Image
A gorgeous contemporary garden by Australian designer, Peter Fudge which demonstrates how a simple and restrained design can look stunning.  I love the Olive, clipped box, Rosemary, Helichrysum and rich, green hedging alongside the cool, grey blue flagstones.  The garden rooms at the rear house utility sheds and a pond.

The Unlikely Suspects

In this light, bright, comfy living room the unlikely combination of concrete walls and orange art work provide a natural focus point with balance and symmetry.

Contemporary Beach House

Image
A contemporary beach house which screams with style.  A white backdrop provides the perfect place for the few colourful accessories and artefacts of the owners. Sprawling sofas and large sideboards provide plenty of storage to keep the place clutter-free. This simple dining room feels carefree and light.  The casually placed canvas leans simply on the wall and the book spines' colours sing out. The vintage-style furniture works seamlessly with the modern simplicity and translates beautifully in this children's room... Images from  www.lonny.com

Shades of Grey

Image
Here's a sensuous room which celebrates texture in many forms, with nature's shades of grey highlighted in the different elements throughout the room.  A soft, touch-me throw, gorgeous wooden backdrop, and hanging pendants accentuate the greyness.  The symmetrical layout around the bed and beneath the window give a restful, calm feeling as you gaze through to the treetops and sky beyond.
