Decor Inspiration for Our Home in Australia

This post we are taking a break from the personal stories and travel to get inspired by interior design. I have not had my own place since giving up my apartment in March 2016 and I miss decorating so much! I can’t even tell you how excited I am to settle into a new home in Australia and really create a space that feels inspiring and fits my style again. Granted this will be mine AND Stephen’s place so I can’t go too girly, but I am so thankful he is all in for letting me handle the decorating. His only requirements- bright, light and beachy. I am pretty sure I can accomplish that!

In my old apartment I had accumulated SO many things over the years that I just kept moving from place to place. Before leaving for Europe I went through a major purge and got rid of about 70% of my belongings. At first it was difficult, but now I am so glad I only kept those important pieces that really mean something to me and got rid of the junk. With the exception of a few knick knacks and artwork pieces we will basically be starting from scratch with our home in Australia. I can’t wait to really design a space for the first time instead of just making what I have at the time work. Below are some inspirational ideas I’d love to incorporate into our home down under.

Costa Rica Continued

The second day of my Costa Rica adventure with Under30Experiences included more stunning views, a new favorite spot in town and yet another coastal sunset. We began our day with a pretty tough hike through the rainforest. Though the steep and rocky path wasn’t easy to climb, we were definitely rewarded with turquoise waters, a hidden beach, and beautiful foliage along the way.

After our hike and a quick dip in the pool to cool off our group headed to one of my favorite spots on the trip, Café Milagro. Not only do they make their own premium, single origin, estate grown, micro milled coffees (I was lucky all the coffee I bought fit in my luggage!), they have the BEST fish tacos. I started things off with a double espresso for that little afternoon pick me up and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.SauvignonBlue-CostaRica-750-3

After lunch we headed into Quepos where we toured the waterways on a local boat and caught the most beautiful rainbow over the river. Just in time we stopped at on land to catch our 3rd colorful ocean sunset of the trip.
