This Weeks Love Affair





This week I have discovered a house so beautiful that I have fallen in love with it in an instant! It is a beach house available for holiday lettings in New Zealand. Can you see why I feel this way? Looking at these pictures, I just can't fault it. I will have to let my husband know the bad news. I have to go there. Soon.

PS: thanks for all your well wishes and concerns for my friend & I last week. xx

  28. New Zealand has some amazing properties ...they have lots of coastline to fill with amazing homes ... I lived there for two years - south island - and we will move back after our time in whoop whoop is done ... Duendin will be our likely city ... I have some very nice NZ homes on the Home Front - plus one delightful beach house should you be keen for more eye candy, and the best bit is they are still affordable in the south island - if like me you also love a cold moody beach as well as the sunny kind ... ok stopping now - best le

  41. I've had the Blackbarn properties in my inspiration file for a while now and I too think they are perfect - I could easily move into one instantly. I posted about them too back in January :) They are such calm, relaxed looking places aren't they x

  45. It is beautiful and maybe a good place to go to take your mind off things and relax a little? xxx

  46. Ah yes...I too fell in love with this when it appeared in New Zealand Life and Leisure magazine. Andy Coltart is an inspired designer, have a look at blackbarn.co.nz at their properties to let to see more of his stunning work. I've always hoped when I get to design my own home that I can have him on board.

  48. Just wanted to drop by and say thanks for visiting my little blog! Also, I know I am a little late with my comment - but I just have to mention how much I LOVE the kitchen in this post... I have been trying to get all my cut out/ideas-file laid out onto a large piece of cardboard in order to define the style I am aiming for with my home / specifically my kitchen and well this picture just seems to sum up the look I am aiming for - as to how close I might get to it with our finished kitchen - well I guess we'll have to wait and see :o) there's still a long way to go yet for us!

  49. I had a look at the photo above. This is quite a collection.

    All in one word - marvelous :)
    I am sure my wife is going to fall in love with all the design & layout if she see visit this site.

    Can't wait to see more posting :)
