Inside Out

The latest issue of Inside Out magazine has just hit the stands, and one of the homes featured is a lovely white weatherboard in beautiful Palm Beach. It was for sale just recently, and I couldn't wait to get a better look at it in all its glossy glory. If I have a pet peeve, it's a lack of photos in a real estate listing - don't they know how much I love a good stickybeak at pretty houses? Anyway, this house ticks all the boxes as far as I'm concerned - lashings of white inside and out, an artist studio (perfect!), and a self-contained guest wing/teenage retreat - my ideal house. Add to that a killer spot on the Northern Beaches, and it's a hands-down winner.

Loft studio space - to die for

 Open, airy living area, complete with window seat

I really like the breezeway between the main house and the guest wing 

 Luxe bathroom


 Probably my fave part (after the studio, of course) - lovely deck with views to the pool 


Straight to the inspiration file with these. Over the holidays we're getting our ideas together for our rebuild/reno, and these will definitely help with the plan.....along with the other million or so I've gathered over the years. It will be quite hard to distil it down into a design that's just right for us, as there are so many gorgeous options to choose from. I have drawings and plans, sketches and ideas, all of which need to come together. Watch this space for more as it all (hopefully) comes together.

  1. What a beautiful home - light and bright. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Freaky. I 'just' picked up the latest issue 20 minutes ago - and flicking through it at the newsagents, I loved the bunk room. So bought the mag (along with 5 other's I bought this week - doh!! - I thought reading blogs would save me money).

    Anyway, as it is still sitting next to my desk, I will now stop work and have a proper squiz - as the pics above looking so lovely.

  3. ... it's funny, really, as I am reading you post, I am thinking to myself...Palm Beach, where is this house? I guess not PB Florida, LOL!
    LOVE this home, garden, pool area and artist studio!!!
