SALT at Shoal Bay

I stumbled across the SALT at Shoal Bay project via Instagram a while back and haven’t gotten it out of my system. A three residence property in Shoal Bay, Australia.

Purchased by a family who lived in the older 1970’s home until doing a full remodel years later. The property boasted beautiful Bay views, a great location, and serious potential.

Working with an architect they did a full remodel using the design to emphasize the bight airy space and simple design. The all white walls giving them the opportunity to embrace the abundance of natural light. Simple and natural elements throughout the spaces provide a laid back, but stylish environment.

Throughout the properties the open spaces help to create an atmosphere perfect for entertaining and enjoying your surroundings. I don’t think it gets better than those large windows and decks with bay views.

The best part about SALT, is that you can stay there. The residences are all places that are open for vacation visitors.

To see more of the properties, learn more about it, or heck plan a dream vacation there, you can follow this link. I’ll be dreaming up my own visit one day.

Let me introduce you to Kate Zimmerman Turpin’s beautifully design Hunt House in Texas.

Images of this rustic historically inspired home have been making the rounds lately, and with good reason. This rustic, European and Spanish inspired home is absolutely stunning. From open shelving and built-ins to simple forms in the architecture, the whole space is a dream.

When design stays true to it’s natural surrounding I am always left feeling so inspired and fulfilled. In a time where home design can seem so cookie cutter, it’s amazing to see homes built from the outside in.

This entire home is full of references to historical styles and combining with the exterior landscape.

I recently stumbled upon Zara’s home sale and was impressed with some of the items they have to offer. I had checked out their tableware and linens before, but didn’t realize it went much further than that. I put together a couple of picks I’ve added to my wishlist, not that I need any need for more home decor. 

I especially love those pillows and unique stoneware bowl. Definitely worth working into a clean coastal home design.

For several years now I have been working to create a healthier home environment. Making small changes like using real foods, diffusing oils, and reading all labels. I know I am not alone in working towards a big wellness goal. I think the trend of reducing waste and harmful chemicals from our lives is not only an important movement, but the way to protect the future generations.
