You know when you pour your heart and soul into a renovation and then you see an image or a house and you say to yourself 'Darn' i wish i had have done that?! I have these thoughts often I call them renovation regrets and they do make me want to jump into another project (heart first head later!). Well Today's Monday Muse Justine Hugh Jones makes me say 'Darn' at every image i see of her stunning rooms. Her recent work of a Sydney Harbour home (looks like Vaucluse) was awarded as a finalist of the Coco Republic Design Awards for 2013..i think she got cheated.. first place went to Greg Natale in the residential category.

The words "Dream Home" come to mind - harbour side (tick) moroccan influences (tick) lots of white and sisal (tick) concrete joinery (tick) amazing art everywhere (tick).

Justine lived and studied design in Europe so adds a distinctive feel of European living with influences from France, Belgium, and Scandinavia yet adapts these to the light and open plans of Australian living.

Justine favours natural materials and textures such as stone and timber and fabrics such as linens, velvets, wools and silks. She chooses muted, calm and natural colours as a base then builds on these with startling combinations of colour, art and shape which add drama and contrast.

 Ok is this not the most inviting outdoor area you have ever seen? I would seriously just pitch a tent and live permanently in this space. No need for a kitchen - there is a pizza oven!! (all of my needs are met!) Those little stools are from Morocco

Ok now we are inside the dream home and more boxes are being ticked..white concrete built in seating; fireplace

and yes i have that Moroccan pendant light hanging over our coffee table at Palmy

Seriously who wouldn't want to snuggle up on that bench seat by the fire - and am loving the

white painted v groove cabinetry with the tan leather handles

Ok Justine loves her sisal (like me!) loving the bronze/iron handrail

See how she expertly creates the perfect splash of colour with the Art

I am beyond obsessed with this bamboo desk and these woven baskets used as wall art, thinking i

might try something similar at Palmy

Or i would be just as happy with this office - the brown leather knoll chair is perfection against the white joinery

 ok Justine gets obviously gets some tough gigs to work on...i think this house is a waterfront in Claireville..love these wooden outdoor couches - this one looks to be from Robert Plumb

The view from the lounge room..i have those blue & white vintage cushions and that pendant light; I love the white painted tongue & groove ceiling

This is another adjacent living area -wow colour and texture palette perfection..tan leather butterfly chairs with navy blue woollen ottoman and a dash of fur;)

I love the recycled wooden shelving and that vintage red day bed

Now did i mention Justine and i share a common love of white floors!?

Justine doesn't just do beachy she nails the traditional style as well; love the painted grey tongue & groove shelving..oh to have a house with a library

And pressed metal ceilings...

 

Or just give a hallway;)!! looks to be some stunning French maybe Belgium Antique pieces here

Another gorgeous antique Louis Phillipe mirror (head to Parterre in Woollahra for similar) am also crushing on grey walls at the moment (influenced by a certain Interior Designer Tania Handelsmann who i will be featuring as a Monday Muse soon)

And there is my failed JK Capri blue again that i tried to replicate in our Master bedroom..still haunting me; looks amazing against the tan leather chair and the white wall mouldings

Now on to Justine's stunning bathrooms...loovvee these wall tiles i think On Site in Paddington sell similar but be warned people they do not come cheap 

I think we are back in my Vaucluse Dream Home (judging from the leather strapped joinery in the Walk in Robe)..this bathroom is of course perfection..love the wall niche in a contrasting tile and that antique wall light is divine

Ok i have been scouring pinterest for bathroom images for our Palmy bathroom which we are about to renovate and i think this might be it..perfection love the contrast between the raw concrete bench and the antique mirrors and have pink dahlia's ever looked better in a bathroom?!

And style check - Justine is a fan of the hand cut mororccan tiles as well (we will be using our leftover Paddo ones in the Palmy bathroom) am thinking of painting the bathroom a light grey like this one as well

 

 

OMG These Moroccan cement tiles are TDF

Another stunning Justine bathroom; this looks like a custom corian sink - we are going with a similar sink design for Palmy but we are using cararra marble which is half the price of dorian (i really am trying to save money!!) clever storage solution with the grey cabinetry below

The Claireville house kitchen..stunning as expected - love these upholstered moroccan stools under the custom marble island bench

Another stunning kitchen..the concrete bench gets me every time..unfortunately it was out of our budget for Paddo

OK another style snap moment - Justine has also used Chistopher Farr 'Brissa' fabric on the dining seat cushions (i used it in the girls built in wardrobe seat in Paddo) love the Leila Jeffries bird photo's although they are popping up everywhere these days

And lastly this stunning bedroom - it looks like the wardrobes have been lined with seagrass? and her signature leather handles look divine...aggghhh i am giddy from all of this amazingnes
