The big picture

The plan for our new place is starting to come together. The idea is to bring a little bit of Palm Beach to Brisbane, throw in some Hamptons style, a touch of traditional Queenslander...basically, you could throw all the houses I've blogged about into a blender, and the result would be close to perfect. I really like the details of this Palm Beach beauty, which was featured in Home Beautiful magazine earlier this year - lovely details, light and airy....perfect for our tropical climate.

Oh, and if you're looking for a holiday house this Christmas, this one is available here. Just make sure you save a room for me...

  2. Kerri I love everything about this, what a super home to get away to and yours will be great!

    I've bookmarked this into my 'travel' folder - what a glorious place to have a family holiday.

  5. Hello Kerri

    Ok I am saying this in my head - Oh yeeeeessssss!
    A very slow and expression-able yes!

    I love it - love the description of it and the very idea of it.
    I can imagine the "protein shake" of houses that you like would be on the want of almost all of us in your admiring land of your style :)



  6. Well I can always dream.. or win lotto...hmmm that might do it ;)

  8. I cant wait to see your home when your done. I love your ideas so far. Thanks for sharing.

  9. LOVE it!!! That outside area is amazing! With the big windows and doors its just dreamy

  10. Sorry Sweetie, but at 12K a week I won't be inviting you (only 'cos I wouldn't pay that much for a holiday house):-)
    But I do agree it's gorgeous and full of ideas. I'm building something similar - more New England/Cape Cod later this year near the beach. I looovee that beige colour on the walls. My husband wants yellow. Who do you think is right???

  11. Kerri, I am loving the pictures you have posted. A definite theme emerging.
