Welcome to Gallerie B’s first blogpost for 2018! It has been a while between posts but there has been a lot of exciting things happening in the past couple of months. My biggest news is that the Home Beautiful magazine feature of my home has finally been published in the current March edition. A…(Read More)

Around Here Lately……

by

It is busy times at Gallerie B central with some exciting projects underway. I thought since it has been a while between posts, I would share some of the things I am working on. I have some lovely clients who are trusting me with the design and decoration of their renovations. Gallerie B offers a…(Read More)

There is a lot happening at Gallerie B central at the moment (hence the lack of blogpost action!). I am working on some great projects and can hopefully share some beautiful ‘after’ images with you soon. In the meantime, I thought it might be helpful to share some tips for a decorating area that is…(Read More)

Apologies for the lack of blog posting lately, it sounds so cliched but I don’t know where the time goes! I can’t believe we have been in our house for nearly 8 months. It definitely feels like home. Of course I love its aesthetics but one of the biggest pluses is that it…(Read More)

A Coastal Dream Home

by

Happy (belated!) New Year everyone. I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable festive season. I spent a great summer at the beach, spending quality time with my family and catching up with friends. Just what I needed to re-charge the batteries and feel inspired for 2017. I can’t believe we are already…(Read More)

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely words and support during our move to the new house. I am still pinching myself that we are finally in! In all, the process has been extremely rewarding. So many decisions involved (my grey hairs are appearing with a vengeance!) but I am already missing my fortnightly catch…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

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)

You might have noticed the recent trend of feature floor tiles in the bathroom. I love the pattern and personality these tiles add. Darren and Dea used a black and white encaustic concrete tile in their bathroom on The Block Glasshouse. It brought interest to their bathroom which still maintained a classic feel through its…(Read More)

I thought I would share a quick update of the landscaping progress for our new build. The weather has not been kind for the guys with rain/hail and crazy winds. A tent has been constructed above the spa to keep out the water and allow the tiling to be finished. The pool is almost…(Read More)

I have always loved stonework on a house exterior, you might remember my blogpost from last year? So it is probably no surprise that we have chosen to have a feature stone chimney on our new build. Work started on the ‘jigsaw puzzle’ this week and I am loving how it’s coming along, thanks…(Read More)

Here is just a quick peek of the latest progress with our new build. The cornicing has been completed and things are really taking shape. I love this detail which will highlight the range hood once it is installed. The kitchen cabinetry should be next which I can’t wait to see. I featured a…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites starts off with a few pics from our recent Merimbula mini holiday. Mr Gallerie B and I (sans kids), along with 4 other couples flew up for the long weekend. We had a wonderful time, including the small plane ride there and back. No flight attendants, or even toilets on board was…(Read More)

I certainly haven’t ditched my love affair with Hamptons-style homes, but another style of home has appeared on my radar….The Modern Farmhouse. It is essentially a mix of Hamptons that is modernised with a Scandi/Industrial influence. These homes are perfectly suited to a larger block or rural property. The exterior of…(Read More)

How was your Easter? We have had a relaxing week down at the beach, although I have eaten what feels like a year’s supply of chocolate! So I’ve been trying to walk a bit more which isn’t so bad with sunsets like these. And a bit of house stalking (one of my…(Read More)

I am excited to show you a sneak peek of the sitting/dining room of our new house. I decided on a round window for a playful touch (and a bit more natural light) to what would otherwise be a fully plastered wall. We are now at lock up stage so I’ll try to…(Read More)

This week Melbourne’s first Max Sparrow showroom opened it’s doors in Richmond. For those who don’t know the brand, Max Sparrow falls under the Coco Republic umbrella but shares a different business model. It aims to keep prices low by not holding any inventory in Australia and I admit that I did…(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)

Wow, I can’t believe that the school holidays have come to an end! This time of year is always met with mixed feelings. I am excited to be able to focus on my Gallerie B ventures again but don’t always love the craziness that the school schedules can bring. We have had some…(Read More)

Happy 2016 everyone and welcome back to the first Friday’s Favourites for the year. I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and New Year’s. I have lots of exciting plans for Gallerie B this year and would love for you to come along for the ride. The down side to these…(Read More)

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)

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)

I have been out and about sourcing some lovely interior products this week. I am excited that we can now access some of the beautiful pendants that feature in so many of my dream homes from the U.S. Of course they come at a cost with the exchange rate, shipping and re-wiring but…(Read More)

Apologies for the delay with this morning’s post due to a technical glitch…….(a.k.a no internet for 2 days!). Just a quick update on the house. The frame on the ground floor is up! It is amazing to see the 2D plan come to life. We had chosen to go with a…(Read More)

Does anyone feel like Christmas is creeping up too quickly and it’s already getting a bit crazy? I do! My interior design work has really picked up and I feel very grateful to be working with some lovely clients. I also received two amazing pendants this week that my girls have chosen for their…(Read More)
