Real Living: Summer & Nautical Inspirations

All tears from Real Living | Cover | Hardware shot by Chris Warnes and styled by Erin Michael | Suntrap, bedroom, table by pool all, blue doors shot by Chris Warnes and styled by Sarah Ellison | New Nautical shot by Tory Amos and styled by Erin Michael | Out door showers shot by Chris Warnes
OK, so don't get me wrong, I love living in a country with seasons and the recent crisp, clear days here in London have been a delight. However, when I saw the February edition of Real Living I was swiftly dreaming of long, hazy summer days. So today I thought we could swap hemispheres with our Australian pals and jump into some summertime and nautical inspiration. As I flicked through the pages I closed my eyes imagined the warmth of the sun's rays against my back and the anticipation of diving into a glistening, still-as-a-millpond swimming pool. I've always thought of outdoor showers as wonderfully indulgent and these examples don't dent that dream! The renovated 1950's beach cottage that graced the cover was an airy and modern home, perfect for summer days and nights but the real treat for me was the blue doors seen above - so fun! What's catching your eye?

  2. The whole magazine! I live in Australia and bought that mag a while ago. I love every page of it. Even when living here I'm dreaming of a beach house or even having a cold drink by a pool.

    Sending you some sunshine from hot Melbourne (+35 today).

    Cheers :)

  4. I have fallen in love with this mag since finding my first one when I moved to Dubai. Love the blue door on the crisp white building. I hope I can retire with a beach house someday :)

  6. This is a little beside the point I guess but I love the red and white striped Soludos I spotted and the navy polka dot bikini the girl is sporting! Plus the scenery ain't bad :)

  12. Well, we are having a major heat wave here in Cape Town so I could do with a swop for your weather! As soon as you step out of the house, it feels like you're walking into an oven! And now that the holiday is over, I can't exactly escape to the beach!

    Thanks for all your comments Will, hope 2012 is going to be a winner for you x

  20. that is one happy post, what a beautiful cottage! I love the bag with the stripes hanging on the yellow chair and the bicycle.

    The weather in Antwerp is so dull and grey right now so I'm longing for spring/summer. I just want to feel the sun on my face.
