Bondi at sunrise... with daylight saving done and dusted we're loving the fresh autumn mornings in our favourite part of the world.
Moody skies over Centennial Park... The April showers have arrived and with them some pretty amazing plays of light across the lakes of Sydney's oldest park.
A country camp-out... we took advantage of a window of sunshine to head to the hills last weekend for a back-to-nature escape.
With the Easter holidays nearly upon us we're dreaming of escaping to a quiet, humble beach shack surrounded by a garden of tea-trees. Despite being an urban-dwelling nation the modernist-style beach houses that populate the small towns up and down the coast are steeped in nostalgia for many Australians. As author Tim Winton writes in his book, Land's Edge, "In my memory of childhood there is always the smell of bubbling tar, of Pinke Zinke, the briny smell of the sea. It is always summer and I am on Scarborough Beach, blinded by light... There is nowhere else I'd rather be, nothing else I would prefer to be doing."
Ok, so this is not exactly where we live, but it's on our wish list of dream homes and interiors. And with the cooler change in the air today, and the imminent arrival of autumn/winter collection online, we're feeling the love for the cosy fireside at Rose Seidler House. A mid-century modern gem hidden in one of the leafier parts of Sydney its original 1950s interior still feels contemporary. Architect Harry Seidler built it for his mother and its open plan design and feeling of bringing the outside indoors heralded a new aesthetic, which has become almost standard in many architect-designed Australian homes today. And the best part? You can visit Rose in all her originally furnished glory on any Sunday you like. Pure. Modernist. Magic.
How about a little classic Al Green to put a smile on your face at the start of the week... Let's Stay Together being one of our all-time favourites here at Tluxe HQ. We've so many reasons to spread the joy today, starting with the cooler weather (Friday's 45 degrees here in Sydney truly felt like stumbling into a fan-forced oven), the fact we have a day off next week (thanks Australia Day!), and that a certain president, who also happens to be an Al Green fan, (check his campaign playlist here), is back in the driving seat. Happy Monday indeed.
Happy New Year you lovely people! Hope you're all enjoying one of our best summers ever - and are finding plenty of sartorial inspiration in our January sale. For those of you who may feel the need to escape the heat (41 degrees expected in Sydney tomorrow!), skip the crowds at the beach for a little cultural inspiration in the air-conditioned coolness of Sydney's MCA and the fantastic Anish Kapoor exhibition, which is on now until April 1st. Kapoor is one of our personal all-time favourite artists and this is a chance to immerse yourself in the perception-changing colour of his work up close. So do don't miss it!
