My occasional 'Friday far away' series is a way for me to keep track of some of the very beautiful places/accommodation that I come across in my web surfing travels - they're places I think 'yes, I'd like to stay there one day if I'm ever in that neck of the woods'. Well, reading this month's Australian Country Style magazine I came across another place I'd like to stay the next time I visit New Zealand, i.e. the boutique accommodation Dry Paddocks that's situated in the winery area of Waipara Valley - in the North Canterbury region of the South Island (approx. 45 minutes from the city of Christchurch).

I live in Melbourne and work in the education sector but my true love (or rather obsession) is interior design and styling. From time to time I come across 'glimpses' of stylish things that I would like to remember and keep track of - whether that's a beautiful flower, a great looking house, a gorgeous garden or piece of 'to die for' art. This is where I like to keep/share these decor related bits and pieces.
