TUCKER TIME // interior inspo

The main reason for dining out is eating good food and enjoying the company of family and friends. Atmosphere can make or break a restaurant, no matter how great the meal is. For me the interiors are also a major part of the experience and a constant source of inspiration and design ideas.

I’m hoping to renovate in the future so I’m already thinking about what I could do with my home. I know the Hamptons style has been overdone but since I’m by the water I feel like I need to pay homage with a little coastal chic. Santorini’s whitewashed simplicity, Spanish mission style architecture and French farmhouses or villas all appeal to me. Then there’s the rustic elegance and raw materials of the industrial look. My love of the Mid Century Modern era is obvious since I have many beloved pieces of furniture in my collection. Luckily I have plenty of time to work out which way I’m going to go. Decisions, decisions…

TUCKER TIME // three blue ducks

Three Blue Ducks is well and truly an established institution with three locations in Bronte, Rosebery and Byron Bay. Luckily the two Sydney locations are convenient for city dwellers with Byron definitely on the menu for the holidays. The good food is obviously the priority but the interiors and laid-back vibe make the dining experience that much more enjoyable.

The dishes are creative and use the best local produce as well as fresh ingredients from the kitchen garden in the back courtyard. They also stock high quality organic, fairtrade and biodynamic products in keeping with their real food philosophy. Believing in sustainable and environmental living by supporting growing and composting initiatives within the community. There’s even renewable energy using solar power, biodegradable takeaway containers and eco-friendly, non-toxic premises.

Many of us aspire to this lifestyle and it is achievable with so many great examples like this to follow. First thing on my dream list is the kitchen garden!
