More Stuart Membery Photos

I love the lattice wall he has created above which he has then layered with some of his beautiful furniture pieces.



I absolutley loved this idea for a dog's bowl above. Stuart has used a beautiful clam shell which is secured onto his deck next to a tap to fill it up...so gorgeous...obviously his 2 beautiful Golden Retrievers think so too!



It was so hot the day we were there {even though his property gets the most wonderful breezes}...all I wanted to do was jump into his divine pool clothes and all...it looked so enticing!




Here are some more photos of Stuart Membery's home which we had the pleasure of visiting just before Christmas. I will be sure to share some more photos with you tomorrow!

These photos leave me speechless! Absolutely gorgeous, no other way to describe it. I couldn't begin to pick what I love because it's just ALL of it!

And OMG -- is that a clam shell?! I'm going to have to take your word for it, here in the Midwest USA I think of clam shells as being palm-sized! BTW, I'm yearning for some of that hot weather too.

Anna from what I can see of Stuarts home its just you all over. Bet you were just jumping on the inside when you were there. What a thrill and what an experience. Look forward to some more pictures and cannot wait to see the inside. Sandy x

Ok..that is the most divine home and setting. I bet you were beside yourself being there, it looks like heaven and very "you" ! Having stayed at your lovely Straddie house i can see the similarities too.
Sigh, i want another holiday now, Bali sounds awesome - have been there lots years ago wonder how much it has changed. Mel xxx

Anna, you really have had a wonderful holiday and trip to Indonesia. So beautiful pictures. At the same time I was in Vietnam. Just wrote the first blog from there. Have a nice January!

Gorgeous images - love his style, and it is really doing wonders for him too - he's a very hot ticket right now.

That dog bowl is incredible. I'd love a giant clam shell like that.

These remind me so much of something you'd put together, Anna! The clam shell for his beautiful Golden Retrievers is my fave of all, because of the dogs, of course.

Stunning!

Oh I want a clam shell bowl for my little pug Alfie! Love the lattice wall as well and that big open porch. Just look at all that beautiful blue and white! The place is to die for!

I love the dog bowl! My family room has a lot of rattan and blue and white upholstery and Chinese Porcelian. Seeing this, I am going to run out and buy that pair of blue and white lamps I saw at an antique shop the other day -- more is more when it comes to blue and white!!

Naomi said...

that first picture is divine. I love all the different textures. It looks like a beautiful spot to vacation (and live!)

Angie said...

Looks gorgeous!!

samantha said...

Good to have you back! I missed your blog. I love the Membery's home! can't wait to see what comes next!

The Glamorous Housewife said...

What a lucky girl you are! I mean, it would be like living in a magazine. That pool is to die. *sigh* It is raining cats and dogs here in Southern California and these pictures make me long for summer.

Thanks doll,

what are they wearing now said...

Hi, I was in the Oxfam shop in the Myer Centre Brisbane yesterday and noticed a lovely range of Vietnamese porcelain in the same blues and whites as featured in Stuart Membrey's house. Intrigued that they originated in Vietnam. Also just wondering if Stuart Membrey has given up clothing design?

Acanthus and Acorn said...

Stunning photos all around! I've been following your blog for awile. I am new to blogging and this is my first comment. The Golden Retriever's are so photogenic...I am the owner of one myself. Bet they stay in the shade with all that heat!

katrina said...

Hi anna,

Welcome back and Happy New Year. Stuart's house certainly looks divine. I am currently seeking something similar in Byron Bay for 2 weeks early March for my husband and I. Alas anything I find on line that looks nice is already gone.

Do any of your blog friends have/or can recommend a beach house in Byron Bay for rent early March .

Simply Luxurious said...

Love the idea for the dog bowl! Fabulously creative and why not tie it into the decor instead of it being an eye sore? Great photos!

What a great idea for a dog bowl! I have two extra of those big clamshells tucked away in a cabinet. I'm getting it out TODAY and using it as Lucky's dog bowl. Genius! Thanks! Made my day!

TrüSka said...

Wooowwwwww what a beautiful house - It's like vacations all year around! : D

christine said...

That clamshell is the coolest idea for a bowl I've ever seen! We don't get them that large here in Canada unfortunately.

Kathysue said...

Case in point, I am smiling, What a wonderful place to visit and how fun to bring back some of Stuarts wonderful pieces, can't wait to see them displayed ,Kathysue

These picturs are devine. I only wish Stuart would bring back his clothing line. I still have a navy and white skirt from his 1988 collection. I only wish I had kept my tartan pieces.
