You probably already have noticed that The Style Files has a new look. The previous design was a bit outdated and I wanted a fresh & modern website. It was hard work and there are still some things to be done but I am happy with the result. Hopefully you like it too! The images are now larger and there are some new features: in the sidebar you see some of my Instagram posts and in the top menu bar there is a ‘decor favorites section’. On this page I display decor items that I like and that appeal to my sense of aesthetics. To be fully transparant, these contain affiliate links. This sellection will be updated regularly with new finds. Now back to blogging! Today’s post features the beautiful Bower cottage in Byron Bay, Australia. The holiday rental cottage is an original 100-year old dwelling, yet any nod to tradition ends at the front door, which opens into sophisticated, five-bedroom, luxury accommodation. The cottage is part of the Bower concept (there is also The Bower Barn, The Bower House and The Bower Suites) which reimagines the whole concept of ‘beach motel’ by combining the barefoot ambiance of Byron Bay with the discreet and effortless elegance of New York boutique accommodation.
