If you live in Sydney or visiting in the next few weeks I highly recommend getting along to the Outpost event on Cockatoo Island. Actually if you can’t make the event you should head out to Cockatoo Island anyway. Such a great place to wander around. Of course lets not forget the open air bar and the pizza trailer next door, who make the best pizza I have tasted in a long time!

I could move right into this building where the OI You! Collection was on display.


D and I often dream about being so successful that we can afford to have a home in Australia and the other in the south of France. By the way we don’t even own one home so this is a ‘if I won lotto’ type of conversation.

Anyway check out my new dream home in the south of France.

We are currently staying in the hills of Bellingen. A beautiful spot but with lots and lots of crawly things.

Here are some pics of my mum’s place to give you a flavour. I promise once I clear all my stuff off the floor I will take some shots of the inside.

I love wandering the streets of Balmain ooogling all the charming houses.

The area was quite rough and ready back in the day. Small cottages were built to provide cheap housing for the people who worked on the docks.

But now those same small cottages are commanding some big dollars.

I love everything in this home. The vintage and rustic furniture with the modern white kitchen, the huge wall of glass and the lighting! Definitely going in the files.

First up from Hand we have a beautiful warm apartment in Lyon. I love the lighting, the textures and the hidden black bookshelves.

A villa in Tassin Рagain love the textures and lighting  Рespecially the yellow chandlier and the yellow trim on the rug below!! Plus the more I see black window frames the more I want!

And finally another beautiful apartment in Lyon. I love the black framed glass partition between the kitchen and living area.

Strange as this sounds all the warm weather of late makes me more homesick than when it rains all the time. I know, I’m weird!

My dream life would be to live half my time in Australia on the coast and the other on the South/Southwest coast of Ireland (in a Huf Haus).

Rachel’s Bryon bay home would fit most of my requirements for my Australian home. The location is perfect and I love indoor / outdoor living although the outdoor bath would take awhile to get use to.
