alanjensen2Love those kitchen floorboards.

It’s Monday morning for me here in Amsterdam, I’ve just finished writing another chapter/wander for Amsterdam: Made by Hand and now I’m ready for a tea break. So I thought I’d come and visit the (blog)house, do a little posting, a little commenting, a little sprucing. Today I want to share with you a beautiful country house photographed by new-to-amsterdam-and-aussie-like-me Alan Jensen. I met Al and his partner Cath Conroy the other day – both Al and Cath are photographers too.  I asked Al and Cath if they’d share some of their fabulous work here in the (blog)house and Al – who specialises in lifestyle and interior photography  – sent me these photographs that he took of a home in the stunning hinterland of northern NSW (Cath will be sending some of her work soon). The hinterland is one of my favourite places in the world (I’m hoping to take French Boy there early next year), and Al’s images of this house are gorgeous, highlighting the relaxed, livable, stylish and full of character nature of this style of home…


Beautiful non? Oui. Thanks Al for the Monday morning hit of inspiration, I’ll be daydreaming about this white wooden walled country home nestled in a little village surrounded by rainforest…

    Ooh yes, I so agree with you about the ceilings – that said, they are PARTICULARLY good at making the ceilings look gorgeous with all the surrounding beauty aren’t they.

    Very inspiring actually. just the mix I want in my home too…

    I think that every home should have black and white floor tiles!

    Pia – I think you would really love NZ Life & Leisure magazine, as the styling is very similar. pop me an address and I can send you one. Don’t worry, I’m in London so it’s not too far. They use a photographer called Matthew Williamson, who has since moved to NY. He has a very similar style to above and is fantastic – slightly biased as he made my house look far more interesting than it was. Just tit-bits that may come in useful one day.

    It’s definitely a gorgeous home. That vaulted ceiling and ambience light, flooring and a bit of color…just perfect! I so like that baroque (?) angel on the wall…

    I love this house! The black and white floorboards are lovely, and it looks so Australian without b=eing cliched. Thnaks so much.

    The kitchen is lovely! I like the old antique feel of it. It was made for cooking
