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)

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)

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)

I have undertaken several small reno’s in the past but nothing is like building your own home from scratch. Call me crazy but I likened the process to (a very long!) pregnancy. There are the highs and lows and you know there is an amazing reward at the end of the journey. Along the…(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 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)

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)

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)

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)

(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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

Coffee Table 3 Ways

by

Choosing a style of coffee table can be overwhelming. There are so many options; square, rectangular, round, timber, metal, upholstered. Then there is the size to consider. Will it complement the surrounding furniture? Is the height appropriate in relation to the sofas? And of course there is the aesthetic. Will it work in your living…(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)

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)

Friday’s Favourites

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)
