Here are a few of my favorite Australian house tours from Design Files as I have dreamed of Australia since I lived in tiny village in Northern England for a short bit when I was 18 and watching the Australian soap Neighbours was the highlight of my days. Also with one of my favorite bloggers, Meghan of Wishful Thinking, most recent news of moving to the land of Oz soon, and the latest book that I am reading about an Aussie expat in Paris, I have had constant visions of Australia swimming through my head lately. I think part of the allure in visiting is not only the warmer temps and that Australia looks a beautiful land to visit but Australians speak English and in the ways of language I am your typical American - hablo inglès solemente or je parle anglais seulement. These are two phrases I have committed to memory in case my attempt to string together words that I have memorized from French and Spanish classes ever confuse someone that I actually speak any other language other than english (let's be honest there is no real threat here). I can actually have a conversation in Spanish if the other person doesn't mind talking to someone that resembles a giant two year old: car + restaurant + eat + now + want + you. This would be me saying do you want to go get something to eat? French would be much worse and I would probably end up saying something entirely offensive with all the double entendres.

But enough about my daydreams - where are some of your favorite places to imagine running away to?

  1. Australia is definitely on my list too, partly because of the language too I will admit! That first image looks so homely, and that hammock on the porch looks perfect!

  2. Funny. I've been in a day-dreamy place too lately. Spent hours on Airbnb last night finding places to stay/live and I have a restless Lauren post in the works in the coming weeks. Where would I go? Anywhere but here. ;)

  4. Ugh, foreign language panic, I know ye well! Haha. Natives are generally a lot more forgiving with visitors butchering their language if you at least show an interest in trying. It's the ugly Americans who show up everywhere and demand English only that no one really likes (and why we get a bad rap!). I'm embarrassed to admit I'm afraid of Australia because of all the poisonous bugs and such, but it really looks like a beautiful country. I'm so excited for Meghan's move! You should read "In a Sunburnt Country" by Bill Bryson if you're looking for a delightful Australia read. There was one scene in specific, where he was running through a forrest after accidentally going off course on a pleasant nature walk, and he picked up two rocks to use as defense for some barking dogs he heard, and then he ran through a spider web and as a reflex, swatted it off his face...with the rocks. I roared. You'll love the book! xo

  5. i adore that moroccan lamp over the dining room table! even with 6 years of being in french classes, i still sound like a two year old speaking french. in french, each noun is either feminine or masculine. children in france know exactly what nouns are which and never mistake them, they learn the gender of the noun when they learn the noun and never forget. i, however, always forget. no matter how many years i study french, i will also make a mistake that a french two year old never would.

  7. I could totally imagine myself in any of these places! As for visiting places: I imagine spending time someplace very green, like New Zealand or (even better) Ireland!

  8. Australia is definitely one of those places for me, particularly because then New Zealand is SO close by!
