Stop searching I’ve found it! This has to be THE perfect bathroom, – actually if you follow my blog you will know that I have made this claim before – sorry!
So often I see bathrooms that have be overlooked in the ‘looks’department and treated as purely functional I do get excited when I come across a bathroom of beauty.
Beatrix Rowe Interior Design of Melbourne have left no stone unturned here
There are soooo many things I admire in this room, the window is obviously exquisite and the clever placement of the full width mirror expands the detail. A great example of a monochrome room of texture – matte timber, polished marble, the tiny mosaic floor tiles verses the over-sized proportion of the light fitting.
More often than not projects that catch my eye are Australian, our architectural style has a definite affinity with that of Australian homes, it makes sense our climates and lifestyles are alike, its easy to see to see the similarities – touches of timber, an emphasis on relaxed outdoor living. This gorgeous home by Richard Cole Architecture could sit very comfortably on this side of the ditch!
I love the choice of products in the Middle Harbour House kitchen, Black and White is an absolutely timeless combination.
Simple black cabinetry, note the black handles, white ‘marble’ bench tops, mirror splash back, great attention to detail see’s the chopping board and oil bottles integrated into the bench top…brillaint
The simple colour pallet of the kitchen extends into the living area seamlessly with the full height cabinetry creating a solid backdrop to the room. Again we see touches of timber, add natural fiber fabrics, full height drapes, subtle lighting and massive doors opening the entire width of the room. What more could you ask for?….nothing I think!
I like little things … finely crafted bowls of glass, wood or colourful china are impossible to pass by without touching, I also like little spaces I feel more comfortable in an intimate space than a large voluminous space.
Small things and spaces require much more thought and attention to detail to be successful I think that’s why they appeal to me.
Small thoughtful spaces require nifty cabinetry and I think this All-In-One-Bunk Bed by Studio Oink is amazing!! See how everything has multiple purposes, the black board is a door, raising the bed double storage space.
More importantly if your a kid it just plain cool
More bathrooms that are too good not to share, this time it’s the sunbeams flooding these rooms that appeal… soft shimmering wash of light what a perfect place to unwind in.
In comparison this bathroom is the polar opposite, dark and moody but still inviting right? Look carefully to see the detail that makes it work so well, full width and height mirror with wall mounted taps attached. Strip lighting and of course the wallpaper!!
Bathroom envy you are experiencing was created by Lubelso, part of The Canny Group a Melbourne based Design and Build company.
Wow this attention to detail stopped me in my tracks, how gorgeous is it?? Beautiful layers of texture and warmth applied to simple shapes.

I love the mirrors in the bathroom below and the vibrant turquoise tiles

I came Villa Kalos while ago via est magazine and I have to confess I haven’t been able to resist revisiting these stunning images, I figure if I look at them often enough I will be magically transported there …. imagine how difficult it would be to leave!
Villa Kalos opened in 2011 after being lovingly restored by South African Photographers Gerda Genis and Robbert Koene, you can see their photographers eye for detail every where you look.
Situated in Ithaka Greece, Villa Kalos offers luxurious boutique accommodation for holiday makers looking for the ultimate Greek Island getaway. Nestled in the country side surrounded by Almond trees and Olive groves, the vegetable garden area is to die for let alone the salt water swimming pool.
The interior is a fantastic combination of restored original building elements and modern comforts, oozing a charming warmth, Villa Kalos is definitely going on my bucket list!
I have always been fascinated by handmade glass objects, I love their weightless beauty and endless colour spectrum. These beautiful things are by Utopia and Utility, ‘where we combine the functional and the fantastical’ …perfect!

I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to spotting colourful interiors, I have to say they are hard to come by!
While I admire the current Scandinavian look of white on white (I’m not so sure about the carefully stage monochrome accessories just quietly!) I do wonder how live-able these rooms are? They often don’t feel like Homes to me, and lets be honest …. where the heck are you supposed to hide the kids?
I love the idea of Colour working like a secret agent controlling us without our knowing, how easily our spirits are lifted in a space with the the right hue. Colour is a dramatic backdrop to the things we surround ourselves with too, after all these treasures all have a special story attached to them, a gift from loved one, an extravagant treat for yourself, a precious drawing from your children or the reminded of a holiday, it’s not just catalog stuff it’s a collection of memories. Memories of a life well lived, a life bursting with colour.
