While I’m not much of a cook, I have a few dishes I excel at – and though I lack the patience to be a particularly good home chef, I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The way our household flows is that my husband prepares most of our meals and I make sure that everything is ready to go when we need it. So yes, basically, I clean up. And I reorganise cupboards, upgrade broken-down appliances, decorate and do all the other important stuff. This system works for us, and for the kitchen we have right now – in the eight years we’ve lived here, we’ve painted it (Dulux Antique White USA), replaced handles and window dressings, added new tapware, brought in a few new appliances…

weekend wonder

From the long driveway framed by beautiful flowering crab apple trees, to the heavenly views of rolling hills and the sea beyond, Diana and Tom’s holiday home on Victoria’s ruggedly beautiful Mornington Peninsula spells tranquillity and relaxation. Little wonder that the Melbourne-based couple, together with their teenage children Grace and Will, find themselves seizing every opportunity to head to their cherished home away from home – also frequented by ducks, koalas and other local wildlife. As does Louis, the family cavoodle. “This is absolutely Louis’ favourite place in the world,” says Diana with a laugh. “We only have to pick up his blanket and say ‘We’re going to see the ducks!’ and he goes crazy. He knows exactly what we mean and where we’re going.” Diana and Tom had been searching…

holiday haven

Katrine’s seaside cottage stands testament to the power of colour to transform the look and feel of a space. Built by her parents, the little home featured timber-panelled walls, brown and orange paint and chipboard built-in furniture, making it a true retro delight. When she rearranged the interior 15 years ago, the first thing Katrine did was paint all the walls and ceilings white, to give the home a minimalist, Nordic feel. She then chose black for the window and door frames. “I think it works extremely well as a contrast to the white walls and ceilings,” she explains. “The black windowsills turn the landscape outside the windows into works of art.” Floral curtains throughout were replaced by plain, striped textiles in soothing beige and elegant aqua shades.

tips to a digital detox

1 TURN OFF YOUR PUSH NOTIFICATIONS: Constant updates entice you to keep reaching for your phone. Instead, designate set times to check in. 2 PHONE DROP: When you get home, leave your phone on a shelf or charging dock. The physical separation will help to stop you idly scrolling through Instagram on the sofa. 3 SCREEN FREE: Allocate one night a week when you don’t turn on the TV or laptop. Listening to music, reading a book or bringing out board games to play with the kids can be far more fun. 4 WRITE DON’T TYPE: Treat yourself with a gorgeous notebook where you can write down thoughts and jot lists. 5 BE ACCOUNTABLE: Reduced screen time has been linked to improved mental wellbeing, so set yourself a monthly goal to cut back and…
