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)

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)

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely words and support during our move to the new house. I am still pinching myself that we are finally in! In all, the process has been extremely rewarding. So many decisions involved (my grey hairs are appearing with a vengeance!) but I am already missing my fortnightly catch…(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 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)

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)

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)

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 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)

I have a bit of a kitchen design dilemma for our new house and I would love your advice! I have two double overhead cabinets on either side of my range hood. At the moment in the plans they all have glass fronts, similar to this layout. Heydt Design Shophouse Design I have always loved…(Read More)

Wow, I can’t believe that the school holidays have come to an end! This time of year is always met with mixed feelings. I am excited to be able to focus on my Gallerie B ventures again but don’t always love the craziness that the school schedules can bring. We have had some…(Read More)

Get Organised in Style

by

I am always on the lookout for stylish storage and January is the perfect time to get things sorted and organised for the year ahead. With a bit more time over the holidays, I have been thinking about how to be organised in our new home. I am hoping that everything will have it’s…(Read More)

I wanted to share a guest blog post that I did for Vanessa from Style and Shenanigans. I met Vanessa at last year’s Bloggers Conference and am a keen follower of her on Instagram. Mum to three boys, Vanessa always looks stylish and wears patterns and colour so well. I love reading about her…(Read More)

Apologies for the delay with this morning’s post due to a technical glitch…….(a.k.a no internet for 2 days!). Just a quick update on the house. The frame on the ground floor is up! It is amazing to see the 2D plan come to life. We had chosen to go with a…(Read More)

Well my girls have been on school holidays for a week now. Although it is much harder to juggle the work/mum balance, it is great to have a break from the regular activities, as well as a bit of a sleep in. Mr Gallerie B is in New York for work and I couldn…(Read More)

It seems as though a Butler’s Pantry is high on the list in most new builds these days. Having never had one, I feel as though it is a splurge but am excited about the prospect of additional kitchen storage. Here are some things to consider when planning a butler’s pantry. 1. Decide…(Read More)

Mother’s Day arrived a week later for me with the second purchase for the new house. Mr Gallerie B spent last week in New York for work. Not one to miss a U.S. spending opportunity, I had my sights set on some handles and knobs for all the cupboards and drawers from one…(Read More)

Hallway Decorating Ideas

by

I’m almost at the Working Drawing phase of the new build. Although I’m enjoying planning with the Draftsperson, I’m anxious about overlooking anything. The hallway is one space that can be forgotten. I am inspired by some of these hallway decorating ideas. 1. Console Table This is probably the most common and…(Read More)

Marvellous (Mud) Room

The girls have been home on school holidays for a week now. I must admit, I am loving letting go of the school lunch-making routine and after-school activities. One of my other minor gripes was the school bags being dumped next to the kitchen bench. They would often sit in a pile until…(Read More)

Window Seat Wondering

by

I would say we’re at the ‘Honeymoon Phase’ of the new build, the Concept Drawing.  Plans are being drawn and design elements added but we are yet to receive the costing from the builder.  So at the moment, I’m like a kid in a candy shop.  I’m really enjoying this phase but…(Read More)

Moving house is a great opportunity to do a spring clean, and in the past week the kids’ toys have had a major cull. As the girls are now 6 and 9, I am being ruthless about what they still ‘need’.  Early on I realised that no fancy dinner parties were being had at our…(Read More)
