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…

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!!!!

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.
