The look of summer

Summery dining room inspiration from Halcyon House in Cabarita Beach, Australia by Amalfi White Living

With September just around the nearest corner, I’m already dreaming of an ‘indian summer’ – anything to hold onto the feeling of summer and long days of sunshine!

One place that to me evokes everything that summer is about, is Halcyon House in Cabarita Beach on Australia’s beautiful east coast. I’ve just written a piece about it on This is Glamorous so I was inspired to design a moodboard inspired by it and its richly layered interiors which were designed by the extremely talented designer Anna Spiro.

Halcyon House is a uniquely styled space which evokes the fun and happy memories of summers gone by, with a definite nod to 1960’s glamour. Its interiors welcome you with colour and pattern while entreating your to kick off your shoes and make yourself feel totally welcomed and relaxed. The ultimate compliment for any space surely?…

The perfect kitchen for summer

I’ve been a fan of this stunning tropical kitchen for a very long time now so I thought it would be fun to share it with you.

It is Marianne Brandi and Keld Mikkelsen’s kitchen in their summer home in St Barts and it’s just one of those spaces that is so finely and perfectly balanced. The high airy ceilings offset the dark cabinetry perfectly and the rattan pendants are stunning centrepieces of the sleek space.
