A Productive Acreage Turned Residential Swimming Hole!

For an inland property situated 25 kilometres north of Sydney, this magical garden could easily be mistaken for somewhere in the tropics. Matt Leacy of Landart is the brains behind this transformation of a steep and rocky block into a luscious residential garden.

Through a mix of native and tropical plantings, a converted dam pool, and some massive excavation works to wrangle the sloping site, Matt has delivered the very definition of an oasis.

Roast Eggplant with Crunchy Coleslaw and Tahini Dressing – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

OK so this isn’t strictly a salad.  More of a substantial side dish really… but it’s one of my favourites, especially as the weather cools down – and so stupidly easy, I felt it was a nice way to conclude my Tasty Tuesday contribution this month!

I’ve been eating a lot of eggplant lately. When roasted with a generous splash of olive oil, its velvety texture just feels so decadent. There’s no other vegetable quite like it. And one of my FAVOURITE flavour combinations ever is eggplant and tahini. SO good.

However, eggplant does soak up olive oil like a sponge, making it quite a rich meal. That’s why it pairs so perfectly with this crunchy coleslaw – the tart, lemony tahini dressing cuts the grease in this dish, and balances out the richness of the eggplant.

This really is a satisfying meal in itself, but if you are keen to pair it with protein of some description, try roasting a small rack of lamb in the oven alongside the eggplant. So easy – it only takes 20 minutes.

An Artist's Brilliantly Colourful Art-Filled Home!

Sometimes, things just fall into place. After missing out on a property at auction, artist Katie Eraser walked into the inspection of this Brunswick East home, and realised she had found the one. 

Her partner Jay Longworth realised the same thing, so on the same day the couple’s offer to buy the property was accepted, Jay proposed!

The period house was already in great condition when purchasing, leaving Katie and Jay with only one thing to do: fill it with art!
