This blog is my *virtual magazine* of stunning homes in Australia currently for sale. The homes are not necessarily perfect (like in a magazine shoot) so you need to forgive some obvious mistakes, and just enjoy seeing how others live, perhaps even take some inspiration from here n' there! (if you see your home here, take a bow because I search high and low before I finally decide to post a home for my blog!) THANKS FOR DROPPING BY...

Well its that time of year, when we all head off to the beach,
summer weather,
although this week is back to school, 
so there wouldn't be as many down the Penninsula!

I love Sorrento, Portsea, Rye,
all those spots down our coast in Melbourne.

Here's one holiday house that's Not Too Shabby!
:) Kate

 Not exactly your typical "beach house" facade,
but what is "typical" these days really???

 I love the use of dark against light in the decor, 
inside & out!

 Lovely chairs - i want them,
I found some in Melbourne on sale for $169 each,
Hope they are still on sale in 2wks when I can afford to buy them!!!

 Check out the timber floors,
I normally don't like this kind of timber,
but its ok in this home!


 Love the luvered windows!

AND Here's the Master Plan!

Me personally, I love it when heritage is glammed' up
like this one.
And I love black.
I'm trying to talk my bestie in to making her bedroom feature wall black,
so far I'm loosing, but I'm going to get there.
Next time I babysit her son I'm thinking of 
arranging a surprise for her when she gets home!

 Beautiful facade

 You'll notice the lovely dark floors straight away!

 I just love that black amoire (is that how you spell it??)

 Wonderful open living to the garden area.
