our dreams begin at home in the personal surroundings we create out of love.

Inspiring me today. This relaxed and personal home in Australia (from the Taverne Agency.) Its laid back vibe is unpretentious and comfortable yet elements of style and design remain very strong. The fearless use of colour and pattern is another plus in my book. This house reminds me how important it is that we consider the occupants of a home, before decorating. This house is obviously home to children and all the stuff that comes along with them! It is also filled with vintage and hand-crafted furnishings which makes it sustainable and green. The ideas in this home could be applied anywhere, but especially in places where the lifestyle is equally relaxed and connected to the outdoors. The ideas in these photographs would be wonderful used in a beach cottage where one is only a seasonal visitor. A few visits to a local flea market and a couple of cans of paint is all it would take to transform a blah rental into a magical, weekend hideaway.
