cross street project

this is the most beautiful of concepts; take a rundown apartment with beautiful bones in a gorgeous beachside suburb, renovate and interior design with a simple, elegant and contemporary style and then sell it; simply as an apartment or as a fully-furnished apartment or shop the bespoke/custom furnishings.

this is what the clever design due from C+M Studio have done with their latest Cross Street project which closed it’s open house yesterday.

I just fell in love with the contemporary scando interior style that Christopher + Megan created. You will too…

my week in pictures

my new fave tshirt; treś jolie is very happy

Jay & I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary earlier this week and he bought me these beautiful flowers

there’s just something about giant chess pieces! these are at Jay’s work

Harley being the crazy hyper dog that he is!

the new addition to my wall art collection; I call him El Toro and he is made of resin (not a real steer skull)!

salad in a jar is a beautiful thing! you layer it with all your fave green healthy goodies and put the dressing on the bottom, then come lunchtime you tip it into a bowl and it’s fresh, crunchy & tasty! In other healthy food related news, I’m onto my last day of Whole30, which is super exciting because it means that (1) I actually stuck to the entire program (2) I learnt some great things about my relationship to food and the kinds of food I want to be eating and (3) I can’t wait to have a glass of bubbles tomorrow!!!!

this is a photo I took when we were holidaying in Fiji, but I’m wanderlusting over a tropical holiday and getting all excited about our planned trip to Hawaii next year. It may be a full year away til that trip, but you can never tire looking at tropical beaches & turquoise waters….

hope you’re week was awesome 💋

envy & awe

A site I regularly peruse called The Style Files featured this beautiful home located on Formentera, a Spanish island.

If When I have my own dream home one day, I want it to be exactly like this (down to the bathroom driftwood mirror)!

I love the natural wood used for the doors and cupboards and the floor stone, as well as the concrete walls coloured in natural tones. I also like the architectural details like the inbuilt cubby-holes for storage and the absence of doors other than the essential ones. Its just beautiful and airy and would be an amazing place to live.
