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)

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)

A Coastal Dream Home

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)

We have been in our new house for one month now and it hasn’t taken long for it to feel like home. There are so many little things that I am loving but one of the big things is the Butler’s Pantry. I have never had a great amount of pantry storage in…(Read More)

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)

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)

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)

Library lights have been around for years but they are now being used more commonly in residential settings. I love any form of accent lighting that highlights focal points within a room. Library lights above a bookcase create visual interest to a book collection. Little Green Notebook They add formality to this home office. Meredith…(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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)
