AUSTRALIA IS KNOWN FOR ITS SUN, SURF AND SAND, and in this beautiful new book - the first hardcover publication from the team behind Real Living - we visit the homes of the country?s most creative stylists, tastemakers and influencers, all of whom live near the beach.

From Byron Bay to Phillip Island, each of the 20 houses, apartments and surf shacks has a different vibe, be it fresh and minimalistic or moody and textured.

With page after page of luscious beach-inspired interiors, it's the perfect addition to every decorator's collection.
