Top Rooms of 2011 from Australia

Here are some of my favorite spaces from Australia's Top 50 Rooms from 2011.

I love indoor/outdoor areas and rooms that maximize on good views - with or without water views - and natural light. I am a fan of eclectic elements and woods of different colors that contribute to the warmth of a space. I like low seating (casual feel) and pops of colors and in some of these the turquoise and greens are beautiful. I also absolutely love spaces where there is room for books - no matter where they are displayed.

1. Light plays

10. Nature's finest

5. Dark and handsome

13. Stepping up

14. Suite dreams

16. Smart casual

17. Open all hours

18. Welcome all

23. Change room

33. Screen star

37. Terrace Australis

39. Heritage hipster

  1. I love how the lines are blurred between the inside and outside. That would be a great way to live but not here it's freezing! That first room is amazing!


  2. Those are amazing rooms! Thanks for the visit :)

  3. Beautiful rooms. I love publications from other countries! It's nice to get a different perspective. Thanks!
    I adore the sunflower stencil you are doing on the back of the closet!!! WOW!

  4. I can see why these were in the top...incredible rooms!! Love the third dining room ~

  5. Gorgeous spaces! I love all of them. You know what, I have been meaning to do this post, too. I found it a few days ago. LOL. Great minds think alike?

    Have a great day, Lisa!


  6. I love the third image - the dining room with the woven chairs and black built-ins - gorgeous contrast!

  7. Oh wow! I love that little stolen space reading nook. It appears to be tucked away at the top of stairs or is that a bed? I'm picturing it as stairs b/c it seems more dreamy to me that way. :)

    So glad you visited my blog so I could find yours! I can't believe you're in Westchester. I grew up in South Salem. Are we neighbors?!?! :)
