New Home - Beach Days
The last 16 months have been a world wind after we bought our first investment property in Lake Macquarie in late 2017 and now on Saturday we are lucky enough to be moving to our very own beach home. A three bed, two bath home with a large garden. It is a complete blank canvas ready for me to make my creative mark. So watch this space as each quarter I will be decorating it with lots of lovely pieces from Create Design love.
Our new home is just by Dee Why Beach in NSW and as I was looking to be inspired I found this stunning setup. This gorgeous Ibiza outdoor dining room is by London based designer Caroline Legrand. I love this look and as I get married in Ibiza next year I thought it was very fitting for the time. I love the communal wooden benches, hanging lanterns and the rattan head chairs.
I think it's so important to be aware of the beauty that is around you, I love the internet as it is so easy to curate wonderful images that get you excited about home design and creative decor. It's even better though when you get to see it in person, that's why I love sites like Airbnb and Stayz. Being a home designer I love seeing things up close and personal, it's important to be in touch with texture and design detail. One of my favourite Airbnb stays has to be this outstanding home, Magnolia House in Byron Bay.
Magnolia House's owners say "Magnolia House was built three years ago with absolute luxury in mind. Every detail thought of. A perfect mix of old and new creating the ultimate stylish home away from home." To book this gorgeous beach paradise click here.
Some of my favourite picks from our latest collection are below, I think this will give my new home the beachy, light and free vibe I am looking for.
Canvas Wall Art
Amazing high quality printed canvas, the perfect wall art to bring your room to life. This item comes unframed but imagine it in a white washed drift wood frame! Gorgeous. I also love the quote which resonates with me "Don't waste your time looking back at what you've lost. Move on, life is not meant to be traveled backwards. Shop here.
Knitted Cushion with tassels
I love this gorgeous cable knit cushion cover with a sweet tassel design. This would look perfect in any beach home. It also comes in four other colours, I would recommend matching this one back with the soft green and pink cushions for the beach look. Shop here.
Woven Rattan Basket
Beautifully woven rattan basket, perfect for storage or just for decor in your home. Made from natural materials and bamboo this sweet design is available in an array of colours. I love this shade of mint. Shop here.
