Indoor outdoor living by Richard Powers photography


Today my online interior design ideas and inspirational blog is finally born and what a better place to start than with to share my dream home.

As a keen traveler, trekker and Interior designer now living in Brisbane, I love the rainforest and the indoor outdoor living that is so typical of my home state of Queensland.

Many years ago whilst working in London, I designed my first warehouse apartment for a lovely couple, Richard and then Danielle in Clerkenwell, East London. Richard Powers was then and still is a keen photographer and has since photographed many gorgeous houses around the world. One of these houses is my dream home, a lovely rainforest retreat designed by the owner architect Arthur Casa.

I love the indoor outdoor living, double height ceilings and the natural backdrop of the rainforest. It gives a huge sense of openness to the living areas and a direct relationship with nature.

Inside, ethnic patterns, natural fabrics and rich earthy tones add warmth and texture to the living areas.

An indoor outdoor dining area has been integrated with the cooking area to one end of the kitchen island design whilst a feature pendant light, designed by Camilla Diedrich for Rotaliana, hangs over the other end.

This house creates a beautiful balance between the surrounding natural habitat, clean architectural lines and an ethnic modern vibe.

Thank you for the time to read my first post and appreciate your time if you would like to leave a comment or tell me what your dream home looks like.
