‘Tis The Season

by

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again. In saying that though, it couldn’t come quick enough. I have been really excited to decorate our home for its first Christmas. It’s crazy but our faux fir staircase garland was one of the very first things I bought for the house…(Read More)

You would have no doubt seen the Fiddle Leaf Fig feature in so many gorgeous interiors lately. It has been dubbed the ‘it’ plant of this decade. It is an attractive indoor plant option with large glossy leaves in the perfect shade of green. The Fiddle Leaf Fig is versatile and has become a go…(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)

It is great to see so many gorgeous new homewares in stores for autumn/winter. While all of my furniture and homewares have been in storage for the past 10 months, I am sure I must be ‘nesting’. Hopefully I still love them when I unpack but in the meantime, here are My Top 10…(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)

Friday’s Favourites

by

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 have a confession to make, I feel like Scrooge. I have taken a year off from the Christmas decorating scene. Not being in our own home, plus having all our decorations and crafty bits and pieces in storage has meant an apathetic effort this year. Apart from my token Christmas Candle and Wreath, even…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites takes on a Christmas theme this week. A big thank you to the lovely Kylie and Sam from DIY Decorator for including me in their Christmas Wreath Showcase. This is an opportunity for 12 Australian bloggers to share their wreaths and Christmas style. I gave my bell wreath (purchased recently from the…(Read More)

This week has been a fun one, making lots of decisions for the new house (or at least trying to!). Mr Gallerie B came home from New York with five of these towel rings below, from Restoration Hardware. Their quality is fantastic and they co-ordinate perfectly with my glass drawer pulls. This is the…(Read More)

New Fabrics For Spring

by

I am loving some of the fabric ranges that are in the showrooms at the moment. Lots of pretty patterns and colours. I am visualising them as roman blinds, cushions, ottomans. I get very excited, fabrics are one of my weaknesses! I thought I would share some of my favourites. Warwick: The new Cornucopia range…(Read More)

The truth is that I have been a collector my entire life. I blame it on my Cancerian star sign but over the years I have hoarded  collected anything from postcards, soaps, serviettes, stickers, swap cards and Hello Kitty stationary. I like to think that I have become more selective with age. So these days…(Read More)

Something extremely exciting happened this week…..I got tickets to see Oprah in December! I know, I am crazy but seeing Oprah has been on my ‘bucket list’ for years. On a trip to New York a few years back with some girlfriends, Oprah was filming a show at Central Park. I was in the…(Read More)

Hawaii Four-O

by

I promise this is the last you will hear about my turning the big 40! I did want to share some photos of our recent celebratory trip to Hawaii which I named the ‘Hawaii Four-O’ tour. Hawaii is one of my favourite holiday destinations. I visited there two years ago and knew I wanted…(Read More)

It has been a busy week of packing boxes as we prepare to move out on Monday. My poor parents will have the four of us (plus the dog) land on their doorstep for the duration of the new build. The past year of living in our 1980s home has gone so quickly and exciting…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

by

How has your week been? I had a marathon design session with our draftsperson last weekend. All my cabinetry ideas for our house were discussed as part of the Working Drawings. It was exciting but scary, and I’m hoping that it will all pull together. Again I am so grateful for Pinterest. I was…(Read More)

The first week of school holidays has flown by with a welcome break from the general routine. I love this time of year and especially the extra long Easter weekend to spend with family. My first Friday’s Favourite for the week is dedicated to the laundry. I have struggled to find many inspiring images…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

First up some weekly inspiration of a different kind. I attended a lunch this week hosted by Business Chicks with Bobbi Brown as Guest Speaker. It is hard to believe she is 57! She tells a great story of how she started with one small range of lipsticks and slowly built a very successful empire…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

Welcome to Friday’s Favourites 2015.  You may notice the posts will have a slightly new look.  I will feature my week’s favourite Pinterest images, whether they be inspirational or aspirational or just some great interior design ideas.  Of course there will still be a celebration of colour too. The first image is a…(Read More)

I thought for my last Friday’s Favourites post for the year I would review some of my personal favourites. I love seeing how designers use colour in different spaces. Getting that perfect balance. I hope you have found my Friday’s Favourites useful, inspiring or just plain eye candy. Looking back, there have been…(Read More)

I love this time of year for so many reasons as I’m sure most of you do. I really enjoy the colours of Christmas, in the decorations, lights, gift wrap…..  The Christmas tree will always bring some cheerful colour into the home. I have usually stuck to the more traditional red and green myself…(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)

The saying goes ‘Blue and Green should never be seen without a colour in between’ but I say why not?  Depending on what shades that are paired, a different look can be achieved.  One of my favourites is Navy blue and Kelly green as used in this beautiful bedroom from Luxe Addition. via   The…(Read More)
