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)

Friday’s Favourites

by

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)

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)

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)

Last week I attended the Den Fair at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. Den Fair debuted last year and this year’s event was twice as big with such a high calibre of exhibitors. It showcases high quality furniture, lighting and homewares and is a platform to celebrate the work of emerging and established Australian designers…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

by

I have been indulging in some artwork ‘shopping’ this week. I have had my eye on these amazing paper feather artworks by Mondocherry for a while now. Each feather is intricately hand cut and then watercoloured. A metallic detail is added and they are then layered to create a beautiful bespoke piece. I am looking…(Read More)

Styling a Staircase

by

The notion of Styling a Staircase might seem a bit over the top but I see those high walls and ceilings as the perfect opportunity to add a decorator’s touch. Most staircases regardless of their size will have a void space and expanse of wall begging for some colour or styling. Here are some…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

I have had some fun this week visiting interior/homewares showrooms and checking out their new stock.  I recently discovered the gorgeous work of Melbourne artist, Chloe Planinsek. She has just released her new catalogue. Recommending artwork can be tricky as it is so individual but I think the colours and softness of these pieces…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

by

My week started with the announcement of Pantone’s Colour for 2016. I must say I was relieved to say goodbye to this year’s Marsala, not one of my favourite interior colours! For the first time, it includes the blending of two shades; Rose Quartz and Serenity. When used together Pantone suggests that a…(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)

Friday’s Favourites

by

I thought I would start off this week’s Friday’s Favourites by sharing a bit of colour inspo with you. Dulux released their 2016 Colour Forecast last week at the Meizai showroom and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview. There were four separate ‘trends’ revealed. 1. Biofragility A subtle palette taking…(Read More)

I hope the mum’s had a great Mother’s day. I enjoyed an amazing Chocolate Bar High Tea at the Langham Hotel with my mum and girls. The Lindt chocolate fountain was a big hit and it’s fair to say we rolled out of there! Yesterday I attended the inaugural DEN Furniture and…(Read More)

Strangely enough I get very excited thinking about Powder Rooms. I have never had one before. Usually our visitors have needed to use the girls’ bathroom. I always find myself apologising in advance just in case there is an unflushed toilet or blobs of toothpaste in the sink! In my mind there are a few…(Read More)

Hallway Decorating Ideas

by

I’m almost at the Working Drawing phase of the new build. Although I’m enjoying planning with the Draftsperson, I’m anxious about overlooking anything. The hallway is one space that can be forgotten. I am inspired by some of these hallway decorating ideas. 1. Console Table This is probably the most common and…(Read More)

Megan Hess: The Dress

by

My usual Tuesday blogpost is a day early as today I’m off on a short break to NYC.  Mr Gallerie B has a conference there this week so I’m tagging along (thanks Mum and Dad for minding the girls!). Friday’s Favourites will take a break but I’ll be posting updates on…(Read More)

Gallery Walls

by

I was so excited to be invited by Yvette from The Stylist Splash to write a Guest Post for her blog.  Yvette is an amazing stylist who shares a similar love for colour and interiors.  She has recently launched an online store (here) which has a carefully curated selection of products by Australian suppliers and…(Read More)

In the ‘spirit’ (sorry!) of Halloween, today’s Friday’s Favourites are Orange and Black.  Believe it or not, I have found some beautiful spaces where these two colours are used, usually in combination with a little (or a lot) of white. via via ML Interior Design via Greg Natale Mona Ross Berman via House…(Read More)

Summer is on its way, although Melbourne’s weather needed a reminder this week!  In anticipation, today’s Friday’s Favourites celebrates brightly decorated rooms.  These colourful images put a smile on my face. Bright furniture can create that ‘wow’ factor in a room and become the focal point. via Anna Spiro both images via…(Read More)

According to the Dulux colour forecast for 2015 (from Interiors Addict), pink and green are right on trend.  Pink is such a versatile colour and I love it bold or in a softer pastel.  Natural colours such as green are also set to dominate.  When combined with white, stronger shades of the two can create…(Read More)

Navy and Pink are two of my favourite colours.  When combined, they create a ‘preppy’ look that I love.  Navy provides depth while pink adds some girly fun.  Although these two colours are strong, they can be softened by adding elements of white. via What a fabulous girls’ bathroom. via via Only Mary McDonald could…(Read More)

Caitlin McGauley is a New York based artist and illustrator who I’ve admired for a while now.  She creates gorgeous watercolour sketches featuring vignettes, full of colour and whimsy.  Caitlin initially worked as an illustrator for Domino and Lonny magazines.  She has collaborated with leading brands such as Kate Spade New York, Hermes, Tory…(Read More)

Design for Mirabel

by

The inaugural Design for Mirabel event took place last week at the Two Ton Max warehouse in North Melbourne.  It was the vision of American Interior Designer, Diane Bergeron (who now resides in Melbourne) to stage this annual benefit which showcased ten of Australia’s leading interior designers, to raise funds for the Mirabel Foundation…(Read More)

Pink and Orange might not be in the forefront of your mind when looking for colour inspiration, but I wanted to show how fun they can look together.  They are an unexpected pairing that provide an energy to a room. In her usual colourful way, Maria Barros has used pink and orange to brighten a…(Read More)

I am seeing Pink and Gold popping up everywhere in the interiors and homewares scene.  I’m loving this feminine and pretty combination. Monika from The Doctor’s Closet blog has introduced these colours to create a beautiful home office.  She has used the gold shelves to introduce pops of pink in her accessories.  Love…(Read More)

Animal print is prominent in this winter’s fashion scene.  Not solely for the fashion world though, I think zebra print is a great addition to an interior.  As with most trends, too much animal is gawdy.  Just a small amount is perfect to add a touch of glamour to a space. via via A…(Read More)
