Weekender on Sydney's Palm Beach

This beautiful Australian home which features in this month's Architectural Digest is located in Palm Beach, one hour north of Sydney. The owners wanted to create a weekend home that family and friends could come and relax in - creating memories for their grandchildren.



This beautiful living room has a Something's Gotta Give feel to it - don't you agree??

The dining room is raised three steps above the living area. I Love the stairs leading up to the second story and the double columns...and the antique french lantern.

The home has walnut plank floors through out, the owners wanted to create a home that they felt comfortable enough to put "their feet up".



The master bedroom features green striped walls and fabric bedhead which is fresh and relaxing


I love all the traditional elements like the wide veranda's and windows

the outdoor entertaining area is stunning!!

I love a raised area and therefore corresponding sunken area in living spaces. That house (who am i kidding, MANSION!) is stunning - gotta find that sugar daddy...

Beautiful! Can I have it? Please?? The blue living room must be decorated just for me...

Picture no. 3 does have that "Something's Gotta Give" feel to it but also with a bit of "The Holiday" mixed in there too, don't you think? I think both movies used the same set designer. All images are divine.

I really enjoy your blog.

Oh I love every inch of every picture. I notice a lot of elements that I have chosen for my home.... but can I pull it all together like that???... well that's why we have interior designers I suppose. I have saved every image in my drool file. GREAT find! A-M xx

I just about stopped breathing! That house is divine. I agree with Kimberlee totally, it is a mansion.
