Dreaming of Sunshine…

December 12, 2012

This week has been busy right from the get-go and, I don’t know about your region, but the rain and dark skies have been pretty relentless here on the West Coast. So when I caught a glimpse of this bright family house tour last night, I couldn’t help but pause and wistfully scroll through each and every room…

Located in Melbourne, this is pristine home was recently renovated from top to bottom by design firm Hecker Guthrie. And when I say pristine I mean polished to perfection…there was some serious attention to detail put into this family home! Did you notice the mirrored wall accents in the kitchen or mirrored kick plate under the bathroom vanity? No wonder the light bounces through each space…

I’ve never been to Australia but would absolutely love to travel there someday! Brad’s brother’s family is leaving right after Christmas for their job/home exchange in Surfer’s Paradise and I can only imagine the warm adventures they’ll experience over the next year! Hope this post brought a bit of warmth to your week :)

It’s stunning, isn’t it? It is ‘Caravan Park (annex dog)’ by Nicholas Harding, 2012, as per the original post :)

That blue rug in the living room is gorgeous! And the backsplash in the kitchen is so clean and light, definitely brightening this dark and dreary morning, thanks!
