A Cosy Cabin Where the Outdoor Space Takes Centre-stage
I’ve gone a little off piste this week. OK, majorly off-piste, with not one but TWO cabins Down Under. The first: a garden hideaway, was on Wednesday, and the second – today! But who can blame me when they exude relaxed charm? 
The Woods Ocean Grove is made up of two cosy cabins nestled in the woods in the Ballerine Peninsula, Wadawurring, Australia. With the roar of the ocean and calls from the bush forever present, the property has been designed to embrace the great outdoors with an al fresco dining area, kitchen, bathroom and fire pit. 
Living in Sweden, I understand the allure of embracing the great weather when it arrives – and love the idea of carving out zones in the garden (or even a little balcony). Don’t miss the snapshots of the interiors too – full of easy vintage style as well as colours and materials inspired by the ocean and bush beyond, drawing the outside in.

Lovely inspiration for a balcony. I really like how they’ve added bar stools and a bar for coffee… wine…. If your balcony is covered, a swinging chair is a great idea too!

The tiles in this outdoor bathroom give the space a complete look and an air of permanency. And you can never go wrong with a clawfoot tub, right?

Outdoor curtains add a whimsical, soft touch to spaces which could otherwise come across ‘hard’. In this instance, it’s a perfect way to ensure privacy in the bathroom too!

Anyone for tennis?

I actually used to play college tennis (many moons ago)! My serve is so bad these days though I prefer Padel. But I’d be happy to pick up my racket for a swing on this court! 

Could you imagine staying at The Woods Ocean Grove too? Find out more here
How great is the outdoor space? I know we don’t all have gardens as big as this – but it’s still amazing what you can do with a balcony or even a windowseat – and by adding lots of blankets, cushions and oil lamps you can enjoy it long into Autumn, maybe even winter! 
I’ve also always loved the idea of using colours that reflect your surroundings. Granted that in a city this can be tricky – but there’s nothing to stop you from bringing in chestnut browns, rust and burnt orange come autumn, and vibrant green shades in the spring, storing and brining out items is such a quick way to refresh the home and embrace each season – and means you’ll appreciate what you have even more. Do you like to update your home for the season? 
Have a fabulous weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with a Scandinavian home tour! 
Stor kram!
