Australian House & Garden - - Houses -

Guests re­tire to semi-rigid can­vas tent struc­tures, each with an en­suite fea­tur­ing a glo­ri­ous out­door shower. All fur­ni­ture and bed­li­nen are from Blu Peter. The dra­matic por­trait and other art­works in the house are the work of pho­tog­ra­pher David Bal­lam, who spe­cialises in cap­tur­ing the di­verse beauty of the peo­ple, cul­tures and land­scape of his na­tive Africa. Adri-Ann stocks his art prints at Blu Peter.

BAR Built by Al­bert Kriel of Bela Madeira Car­pen­try, this pop­u­lar fea­ture in­cor­po­rates nat­u­ral and painted wood, with fil­i­gree cut-outs to soften the light­ing. The barstools, also avail­able to buy at Blu Peter, come from neigh­bour­ing Malawi.

MAIN LODGE Adri-Ann in her favourite spot to re­lax. Ly­ing on the day bed, look­ing out to sea, it’s easy to see why the lodge’s name is de­rived from the Por­tuguese word for ‘blue wind’. The frame is sam­biri, an­other lo­cal hard­wood. Ke­lim rug from Turkey.
