Adding Colour To A Bathroom


I was very excited to be asked by Perini Tiles to write a feature post for their blog about adding colour to a bathroom. Here is what I shared with their readers…… I am a big lover of colour and the bathroom is no exception. Many people opt for the safety of neutral tones but…(Read More)

Spring is in the air in Melbourne and today’s colours share a sense of summer days ahead.  At opposite sides of the colour spectrum, aqua and orange are complementary.  They are bright and bold and create a happy space.

For example, the interesting textures and patterns being used…(Read More)

I hope you don’t mind me mixing things up a bit but today’s Friday’s Favourites is the furthest thing from colour. It is clear and colourless, the acrylic resin known as Lucite. Lucite is used widely in interiors and is right on trend in this season’s accessories.  Although it has been…(Read More)

On August 21 I attended the launch of the Jonathan Adler range at the Coco Republic showroom in Richmond. I am so excited about this collaboration between two of my favourite brands.  I have been a huge fan of Jonathan Adler’s homewares and furniture from the moment I first stepped into his flagship Soho…(Read More)
