Creating A Restful Retreat

by

Ahhh, how quickly has December crept up on us this year? Despite the craziness, I love this time of year. The warm weather, festive vibes and diversion from the usual routine. Not to mention the Christmas decorating. I am so slack these days with sending out Christmas cards but always loved receiving them. I was…(Read More)

I have recently returned from a whirlwind week in New York. My husband had to go there for work and I was lucky enough to tag along (without kids) :). It is such an inspiring city in so many ways, but I really love seeing the homewares, decor and furnishings. Being a shopping mecca and having…(Read More)

‘Tis The Season

by

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again. In saying that though, it couldn’t come quick enough. I have been really excited to decorate our home for its first Christmas. It’s crazy but our faux fir staircase garland was one of the very first things I bought for the house…(Read More)

We have been in our new house for one month now and it hasn’t taken long for it to feel like home. There are so many little things that I am loving but one of the big things is the Butler’s Pantry. I have never had a great amount of pantry storage in…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

This week is the start of new beginnings for me that bring with them mixed feelings. I am so excited that this time next week we will be in our new home. On the other hand I feel sad that this is my last Friday’s Favourites post. I will definitely still be blogging, just…(Read More)

I have recently had a run of clients asking for advice on how to fill a blank wall space in their home. Many of them have been staring at a white expanse for ages, unsure of what to fill it with and scared to commit. My answer generally depends on the size to be filled…(Read More)

It has been a big week of installations at our new build. The wallpaper and lighting have gone in. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos to share yet as I need to steer clear while the flooring is being laid. I can show you this piece of feature wallpaper that has been installed somewhere…(Read More)

I am a long time fan of rattan! I love how it instantly brings texture to a space where hard surfaces dominate, and reminds me of coastal holidays. It is a versatile and affordable decorating accessory and available in many shapes and sizes. Here are my 4 Ways to Introduce Rattan Into Your Home. 1…(Read More)

I shared the newly installed pineapple wallpaper in the girls’ powder room on Instagram and FB this week. This Rifle Paper Co wallpaper has been on my wish list for a while now, I love the colour palette (and the pineapples!) and thought it would be perfect for this small space. I included a round…(Read More)

You would have no doubt seen the Fiddle Leaf Fig feature in so many gorgeous interiors lately. It has been dubbed the ‘it’ plant of this decade. It is an attractive indoor plant option with large glossy leaves in the perfect shade of green. The Fiddle Leaf Fig is versatile and has become a go…(Read More)

I think pray we are on the homeward stretch now with our new build. There has been a delay with the flooring which may push our moving date by a few weeks. Building is definitely a waiting game. I liken it to a pregnancy where you know there is a reward at the end but…(Read More)

Yesterday I paid a visit to the annual Decor and Design Show. This is one of my favourite Interiors events which showcases the latest furniture and decor products in Australia. There was so much to take but here are a few of my favourites. There is a definite blue theme going on! I love the…(Read More)

We had a great week of sun and relaxation in Noosa, just what we all needed. The drive up and back was surprisingly easy thanks to Sat Nav and a good supply of DVDs for the kids. One of the highlights was a day trip we took to Fraser Island. I did this same trip…(Read More)

Throw rugs are my favourite winter accessory, especially with Melbourne’s weather. There is nothing better than curling up under a throw with the fire going and a cup of tea. Aside from the practicality of a throw rug, they are a versatile styling accessory. A throw rug can add colour, texture and warmth to…(Read More)

I am starting off this week’s Friday’s Favourites with some photos from our new build (thanks for hanging in there with me!). This is the void at the top of the staircase which I have made into a window seat nook. It is such a bonus that this little space gets a great…(Read More)

Let’s just say it has been a few years since I have set up a nursery. I would have a much harder time making decisions these days with the amount of gorgeous furniture and accessory options available. My one piece of advice to someone setting up a nursery is to choose more ‘grown-up…(Read More)

I hope all the mums had a wonderful day last Sunday. My Mother’s Day gift came in the form of some fabric (chosen by me!). I saw this Serena and Lily Spade fabric below on sale on their U.S. website. It was reduced from $50/yard to $8/yard! Not one to turn…(Read More)

It is great to see so many gorgeous new homewares in stores for autumn/winter. While all of my furniture and homewares have been in storage for the past 10 months, I am sure I must be ‘nesting’. Hopefully I still love them when I unpack but in the meantime, here are My Top 10…(Read More)

The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb has been on my bucket list for a while now. I am excited to say that last weekend I ticked it off (and dragged my poor mum with me, Happy Mother’s Day)! I would highly recommend this incredible experience. The views are spectacular and it was expertly run from…(Read More)

A Place To Pamper

by

The idea of having a dedicated pampering place in the bathroom was on my wish list for years. So the moment we started planning our new build and designing the bathrooms, I made sure a built-in vanity was included. It was going to look something like this. An additional space built in between the…(Read More)

Some wonderful new products have just been released in the decorating world that I wanted to share with you. I recently wrote about Outdoor Fabrics and how they are a great option to use indoors. Thibaut have launched their Calypso Outdoor Fabric range. The prints and geometrics are so pretty and in gorgeous colours. They…(Read More)

Get Organised in Style

by

I am always on the lookout for stylish storage and January is the perfect time to get things sorted and organised for the year ahead. With a bit more time over the holidays, I have been thinking about how to be organised in our new home. I am hoping that everything will have it’s…(Read More)

I have a confession to make, I feel like Scrooge. I have taken a year off from the Christmas decorating scene. Not being in our own home, plus having all our decorations and crafty bits and pieces in storage has meant an apathetic effort this year. Apart from my token Christmas Candle and Wreath, even…(Read More)

Etsy is undoubtedly a treasure trove of vintage and handmade items. Hours can be easily lost searching through the thousands of unique stores. My favourite thing to buy on Etsy are prints. They are inexpensive and are a great way to add some colour to a space. I am a fan of the A4 size…(Read More)

Is it wrong to design a bathroom scheme around a towel?! You might recall from my recent post, U.S Homewares Stores That Ship To Australia, I featured these gorgeous towels from Neiman Marcus. Well, my patience paid off and they went on sale not long after. I wasted no time in buying this hand…(Read More)
