A beautiful Australian home inspired by nature

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

There are some homes that are just so unique and personal they're an absolute feast for the eyes and it actually doesn't matter how many times you see them, there's always something new to look at. Kara Rosenlund's beautiful tin and weatherboard cottage in Australia is one of them. Kara is a photographer (I've got one of her amazing seascapes on my sitting room wall), stylist, author and shop owner where she sells her own lifestyle range - in other words one talented, busy, lady!). She shares her home with husband Timothy O and a flock of chickens. The home is decorated with an abundance of treasured finds and 'natural tones and hues inspired directly from the palette of nature'. Let's take a tour....

Photos kindly sent to me by photographer extraordinaire Kara Rosenlund.

Just incredible, don't you think?! The detail, the distinct style, the natural elements, everything!

I love the autumnal colours too - beautiful. 

You can see more pics of Kara's wonderful home here. And pick up items from her lifestyle range here as well as her beautiful photographic prints here (and a signed copy of her fab book: Shelter: How Australians Live).

I arrived in Norway last night for a three day photo shoot for my book - sooooo excited! It will be a hectic few days so I'm afraid I'm going to have to take a short break from the blog - and will be back again on Monday.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

A lovely mix of modern and vintage in a Swedish home

Monday, 26 September 2016

Hello Monday! Today's another crazy day here. The girls and I have been in London for the weekend to celebrate my Mum's birthday - which we spent at Petersham Nurseries (I think I need a bigger garden...!)- and now we're heading back to Sweden (and me, onwards and upwards to Norway to shoot for my second book! Exciting!). But thankfully I've found a beautiful, calm home to help ease us all into the working week - snapshots from Johanna Bradford's apartment which was recently for sale (do you remember this feature?).  There's something a little nostalgic about Johanna's home (and many of her talented associates including Kristin Lagerkvist, Emma Von Brömmsen and Sofia Jansson) - it must be the lovely wallpaper? Either way Johanna's relaxed home is a perfect mix of modern and vintage so personal.  Let's take a tour....

Oh so lovely, don't you think?

I particularly love the hallway. In fact - I love everything about this home. How about you?

Get the look: The kitchen has been painted in light grey no.17 by Farrow & Ball. Row of hooks, Marshall speakers, wine glass rack, willow wallpaper, source a similar beautiful boucherouite rug, macrame wall hanging, Le Grand Air sofa, Gubi coffee table, Private rug.

Right, better get a move on! Wish me luck!

Have a great start to the week!

PS - have you entered the give-away yet? I don't think you'll want to miss out!
