Anna Spiro's Holiday Home

As the sun beats down, and the Mr & kids continue to holiday, I'm trying to balance family time and my interior work. This gorgeous holiday home seemed like the perfect post today, as it combines a holiday vibe with the divine interior styling of one of my idols, Anna Spiro. Anna's family holiday home is on Queensland's idyllic Stradbroke Island.

What a view!

Anna's famous for her ability to mix patterns, and her love of blue & white.
Throughout this home she uses blue and white for a relaxed beachy feel with accents of red.

I have this exact piece of furniture in our bedroom, and it always makes me smile.

A beautifully rustic hand painted bench makes a nice reading spot.

Simple but beautiful styling with shells from the beach and a sprig from the garden.

Beautiful furniture and Anna's beloved ginger jars make a great display.

The pattern mix works here because the colour palette has been kept simple.

Love this vignette - the lamp adds height and texture, but because it's all white
it doesn't detract from the painting, which is the hero.
