Flowers : how a humble little thing can provide inspiration....

These very first blooms of Autumn on a hedge in a street in Melbourne 

got me thinking about the importance of the seasons in 

creating Fabulous Buildings.

The importance of natural daylight : would you love to live here?

One of the most important elements in a beautiful home

is the inclusion of natural daylight,

especially if it is used in a way to draw in light but not heat.

I have been hunting for inspiration of how best to achieve this

for one of my current projects,

where the clients are mad for natural daylight,

and I discovered this house along the way.

Come and have a look to see what you think,

and then tell me how important natural sunlight is in your own home...

Dreaming of a Country Farm garden .....

It's always right about this time of year, 
as my project deadlines all jostle for attention
in the mad rush to "put everything to bed" before Christmas,
and as the early summer days beckon teasingly with their promising warmth,
that I start dreaming of owning a little farmlet.

Preferably one with rolling hills,
with majestic Eucalypts atop the ridges
and gullies of dense shade filled with bracken and wildflowers,
and in between rows and rows of vineyards and olive groves.
