Journeys of a lifetime; journeys to be shared
There seems to be nothing more fitting as we enjoy the month of June than to share an amazing beach-ridden experience in the Gold Coast of Australia. Original and notable design is always worth sharing, and with pleasure I bring you an Aussie gem. In the midst of our travels we stumbled upon a darling café along the Harbor for breakfast, or “brekkie” as it is affectionately called in Australia. Not only was the brekkie poignantly noteworthy, but so was the café décor.
Brumbles is full of charm and inexpensive ideas to create your own beach inspired haven. In keeping with the roots of this converted cottage the personal touches are endless – tea lights, fresh flowers, French music, and even a reading room for guests that wish to linger. Outdoor and indoor tables were covered with random cut mosaic tiles with simple Bumble Bees inlayed for their branding. Each room had its own sense of personality, one striking memory being a wall with hand drawn geometric squares reminiscent of picture frames, and simple snapshots of frequent guests appliquéd like wallpaper. Imagine my surprise and delight when I noticed some all too familiar decorative white wall plates hanging in a private back room… they enchanted the space. Inexpensive crisp white paper mache’ lights hung from the ceiling and streamlined Danish style furniture filled the room. And amongst all these creative decorating elements – let us not forget that shells were in abundance!
If you are ever in the breathtaking Gold Coast of Australia, be sure to make your way over to Brumbles for an enhanced coastal experience. Relaxing ambiance, great service, fresh and healthy food, and genuine design vibe that will warm your soul… music to any traveler’s ears.
