A Dreamy Holiday Oasis In The Heart of The City

The clocks go backward in Sweden on Saturday (for the very last time if I recall right - phew!). If I'm entirely honest, it does fills me with a little dread, the evenings are dark enough already. Yes, I can wax lyrical about candles (see what I did there?!) and the cosiness that comes with hot chocolates and cosy blankets, and I do have many moments where I love to embrace the chill (wait until you see tomorrow's post!) - but today, can I just indulge my longing for sunshine and warmth with this fine specimen of a house? Situated in Bellevue Hill, Sydney (we might have guessed it's on the other side of the world!), this secluded home has been transformed into a magnificent 'holiday oasis within the city' by the talented team at CM Studio. Think furniture and accessories with a beach vibe - made from wood, bamboo, and rattan against a backdrop of fresh white, and windows that let in large, luscious bites of nature. Thank you for the tip The Style Files - you've brought an exotic touch to my day! I hope you enjoy the tour too!  

All that sunlight! Guh!

.... you'd feel like you were living in year-round paradise here, don't you think?!

I love the simplicity of the interior too. The minimalist vibe works because of all the subtle textures and surfaces at play which are just enough to add depth and interest to each and every room. 

Is there anything you love in particular?

Tomorrow, I'll be tapping into my inner hygge once again and sharing some pictures from our weekend at a friend's cosy Swedish log cabin in the woods. Hope to see you then!

  1. This home is magnificent. The home exemplifies calm, beauty and order. The unbelievable views though the windows is truly like a portal to "Eden" I know I will come back to your blog to see this home (many times)

    1. What a lovely description! I'll also be revisiting this home many times for inspiration, it is so beautiful! :)

  2. Ohh, so nice and simple. Why only the floor in the bathroom
    isn't why as well

    1. I love the simplicity of this space too, it's so calming!

  3. How is it that there are palm trees in the cold climate of Sweden? I live in Minneapolis Minnesota and have snow and cold in winter that will certainly kill off anything as tropical as palm trees

    1. I can understand your confusion - I wish we did have palm trees in Sweden, but you are indeed correct - there is no way! This home is in Sydney, Australia. I usually show homes from Scandinavia but every now and again I find a beautiful home elsewhere that feels Scandinavian inspired and I feel compelled to share them. I hope this clears things up!
