Beachy keen

I was a little awe-struck when I first saw this home in Australia. It really is an absolute summer dream - completely bathed in sunlight, with an open, breezy layout and panoramic ocean views - the perfect marriage of indoors and out. The home's warm wood and stone facade make it feel like it blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. 

I love the injection of a little black and white chevron here - adds a bit of punch without straying from the home's sleek, steamlined aesthetic.

The tropical plants throughout the home make the line between outdoors and in even harder to distinguish, and gives a lovely sense of flow to the space.

A giant picture window almost gives the illusion of an outdoor bath. Meanwhile the scalloped aqua tiles in the shower play in perfectly with the oceanside environment and add an unexpected burst of bright colour.
