A beautiful Australian home inspired by nature

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!

PS don't forget to enter the give-away if you haven't already....


  1. It's all the beautiful natural elements that stand out for me. The shells, plants and wood. Quite spectacular. Enjoy your time in Norway.


  2. I love shells and wood, thank you for sharing this. :)

  3. Love it except for the loads of hanging unpractical stuff in the kitchen.

  4. I followed Kara on Instagram for a couple of years. My faves (which I had seen on her blog before) is the kitchen and bedroom with the vintage windows for headboard.
    I don't know how she does it - if I had all that stuff in the open in my kitchen it would look like one hot mess - but Kara somehow makes it look so effortlessly beautiful and elegant.

  5. Really like the bathroom but the kitchen is giving me anxiety!
