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)

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)

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)

Friday’s Favourites

by

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 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)

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)

It is trade fair time in Melbourne and yesterday I found myself at Life in Style checking out what’s new in the world of homewares and accessories. I have always loved Bonnie and Neil’s textiles but their latest artwork collection really caught my eye. Each limited edition piece is hand printed on paper…(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)

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)

We have had miserable Melbourne weather for most of this week but there have been some pockets of sunshine to bring me out of hibernation. This is one of my favourite walking paths that I always love at this time of year. I am living vicariously through some of my friends who are lucky enough…(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)

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)

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)

One of my favourite fabric and wallpaper brands, Thibaut has just released their new Bridgehampton collection. It is a mix of floral, small and large scale geometrics and a fun animal print. Although the patterns are traditional, they have been given a contemporary edge with their fresh colour palette. Here is a sample from the…(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)

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)

Here is a sneak peek of our house update this week. The exterior of the first floor is complete and scaffolding has been removed. No surprises that I have chosen a grey (Dulux Tranquil Retreat) for the exterior colour with white trim (Dulux Natural White). The weatherboards are starting to go up on the ground…(Read More)

This week I realised how speedy social media can be in connecting people. I posted this photo of a gorgeous barn that I drove past in Red Hill last weekend. It literally stopped me in my tracks (especially those doors). It has been newly built and had me guessing what it will be used for…(Read More)

Here is a brief update on the house progress. The frame is up and the roof and guttering installed on the top floor. This photo was taken by the builder this week. I am really happy with how my American shingle roof is looking. After seeing this view though, I am disappointed we didn’t…(Read More)

Yes or No to Kitchen Rugs?

by

This week’s topic might be a bit controversial, the kitchen rug: yay or nay? I know many people would shudder at the thought of placing a rug in this high traffic area that is subject to food spills but a kitchen rug does have its merits. I have used one at our beach house…(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)
