A big thanks to everyone who's been Coming Over Sundays for the past year! And an extra big thanks to all our stylish home makers who have shared their spaces and their stories with us. We're looking forward to another year of seeking out and showing off gorgeous homes. As it's our anniversary, here's a mixed bag of goodies for you to enjoy - from our first post until now.
A few things can be said about family homes. First, they shouldn't be precious (because it's no fun yelling at the kids). Second, it is possible to maintain great style (it's really not necessary to get those foam mini-sofas). And third, there should be a great big gum tree in the backyard crying out to be climbed (in an ideal world we know). Full of special pieces and treasured art yet brimming with a casual family vibe, this house ticks all the boxes (including the tree-in-the-backyard box).
Welcome to Jackline, Aaron, Mali and Pascale's beautiful and creative home...
|Kids paintings and collected pieces make for a colourful corner.|
|A screenprint on the windowsill echoes the colours in the horse opposite.|
Jackline did this work as well as the screenprinted cushions on the sofa.
Such a creative family!
|The master bedroom has just the right combination of colour |
|Aaron's grandmother, Margo Lewers painted this treasured abstract |
|Not a Bieber poster in sight.|
A stunning feature wall makes geography fun.
Jackline says Mali likes to look for her name (in West Africa if
you're wondering) and Pascale is is understandably put out
that you can't travel to Pascale.
|We're feeling a bit patriotic.|
|A table bought as a prop for a film Jackline worked on is|
paired with (replica) Hans Wegner chairs. Jackline is hoping
she gets the real deal one of these days.
|A patch of lawn, a shady pocket, a barbeque and a sturdy old |
gumtree. A perfect Aussie backyard.
|An Arne Jacobsen desk lamp lights the work space and key pieces|
of art brighten it. It would be hard not to be inspired here.
