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)

Spring has definitely sprung here (but you never really know in Melbourne)! We spent Father’s Day at our beach house and a morning walk gave me a taste for summer days ahead. And on our new build front, here is the outcome of the garage door debate. My hubby wanted to keep it cedar…(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 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)

This week we have reached new heights with the boxes that have been taking over our living room! They contain all the lighting that is being installed at our new build today. It will be great to be rid of the boxes and see the lights in situ. The wallpaper is starting to go up…(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)

I hope your week has been a good one. Here is a quick update on our house. The front railing and steps have gone in. I am thrilled with how the ‘X’ detail looks. As you can see, on this side, the house sits high on the block so we will need to do a…(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)

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)

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)

(So sorry if this is the second time you are receiving this blogpost. I have had a slight technical hitch. All I can say is TGIF!! x) Don’t you love a short week? I can’t believe it is Friday already. A few of you have asked me for a photo of our finished…(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)

Last week I shared the start of the stone work on our chimney. What a difference a week has made. The ‘jigsaw puzzle’ is almost finished and our landscapers (VDB Gardens) have done a wonderful job. Unfortunately for them, there are still some retaining walls out the back to clad. I’m sure they will…(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)

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)

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 am happy to report that progress is going well with our new build. Our mantlepieces arrived and I can’t wait to see them painted. We will have one in the sitting room and one in the living room surrounding the gas fires. Here is a peek at the front sitting and dining room…(Read More)

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)

This week has been a busy one. Lots of big decisions are being locked in for our new build interior. Although I made most of these decisions a while ago, it is hard not to second guess them. To stop myself overthinking things I am going with my initial ideas and relying on gut instinct…(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)

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)

Melbourne turned on the weather for my annual visit to the Melbourne Flower and Garden Show yesterday. I loved getting my fix of floral colour and garden inspiration. This garden by Vivid Design for The Greenery Garden Centre was a stand out. As I am on the lookout for evergreen hedging ideas for our garden…(Read More)
