I am a Melbourne based Interior Designer and Decorator.  I live with my husband and two darling daughters (9 and 12).   An Occupational Therapist by trade, I decided after having the girls that I needed a more creative outlet.  I completed some Interior Design courses and dabbled in designing a range of feature armchairs, while discovering my love for soft furnishings.

A two year stint in Virginia in my teens gave me a taste for all things American.  I admire their incredible attention to detail in so many aspects of design, and spent countless weekends visiting display homes. This led me to designing and overseeing the build of my own ‘Hamptons’ inspired home. I have loved decorating each room in my favourite classic but fresh style, with splashes of colour thrown in.

Although I can always appreciate life’s finer things, I love nothing more than the thrill of a good bargain. So my home is a mix of some carefully selected less expensive items with a few more ‘special’ pieces that will hopefully last us through the years.

I hope for this blog to be an opportunity for me to share some of my designing tips, and admire and appreciate the beautiful things that surround us.  Anything that is appealing to the senses, and puts a smile on my face.

Thank you for joining me along the way!
