Friday’s Favourites

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)

Does anyone feel like Christmas is creeping up too quickly and it’s already getting a bit crazy? I do! My interior design work has really picked up and I feel very grateful to be working with some lovely clients. I also received two amazing pendants this week that my girls have chosen for their…(Read More)

I have been eagerly awaiting the opening of The English Tapware Company’s new showroom in High St, Armadale. The showroom was designed in collaboration with Interior Designer, Hecker Guthrie and it is beautiful. High ceilings and abundant natural light create an inviting retail experience. I stopped by recently as I am looking to use…(Read More)

There has been a bit of action with our new build this week! The slab for the garage has been poured and the stumps for the house are in. Because the block is on a slope, building on stumps was a better option. It is exciting being able to see the footprint of the house…(Read More)

How good is Spring? It’s by far my favourite season. I felt so great shedding the woollen winter coat which was becoming like a boring daily uniform. Walking around the hood I love seeing new foliage and blossoms on the trees. It’s the anticipation of blue skies and relaxing summer holidays ahead. And…(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)

After 25 years designing high-end fashion, Collette Dinnigan has made her debut into the Interior Design world. I must admit I was stopped in my tracks when I first saw her stunning makeover of two luxury penthouse suites at Bannisters By The Sea, in Mollymook on the NSW coast. Their rejuvenation involved some major…(Read More)

I was excited to be recently invited to write a guest blogpost for Perini Tiles. I wrote a previous post for their blog last year, Tile Trending (here). Given that selecting tiles is on my radar at the moment, it is perfect timing for me to share my thoughts on How to Create a Hamptons…(Read More)

I really enjoyed my visit to the Decor and Design Show last week. The highlight was meeting London-based fashion and lifestyle designer, Allegra Hicks. I was a bit awestruck but she was lovely and graciously signed a copy of her gorgeous book, An Eye For Design. Here are some other things that caught my…(Read More)

Apologies that my blog is a day late. After arriving home from Hawaii on Monday and then (finally!) celebrating my actual birthday yesterday, time has got the better of me. While I am still in holiday mode, I thought it timely to share with you a new range of bath and beach towels that have…(Read More)

I have had a busy week sourcing products for clients, something I love to do. It is great to see that we are finally getting access to more of my favourite U.S. interiors brands. This week I stumbled across the beautiful Phillip Jefferies range of wallpaper. Check out this amazing hemp geometric design wallpaper…(Read More)

Halcyon House

by

I have been following Brisbane interior designer, Anna Spiro’s instagram feed more fervently than usual. Over the past few months she has been teasing her followers with snippets of her interior design work for Halycon House, the new 21-room luxury boutique hotel on Cabarita Beach, NSW. Halcyon House has finally opened its doors…(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)

I hope the mum’s had a great Mother’s day. I enjoyed an amazing Chocolate Bar High Tea at the Langham Hotel with my mum and girls. The Lindt chocolate fountain was a big hit and it’s fair to say we rolled out of there! Yesterday I attended the inaugural DEN Furniture and…(Read More)

This week marked a bit of a milestone…….I made the first purchase for the new house! Not a big one but I’m still excited about these two rattan pendants I picked up at the Coastal Living sale. I am planning to hang them in the Al Fresco area which will be positioned off…(Read More)

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)

I hope you had a great Easter break with your families. I love this time of year in Melbourne as the mornings get crisper and the autumn colours put on a beautiful display. (Brunch on the deck of the Merricks General Store) I was also really touched this week to be recognised by my friend…(Read More)

Last week I paid a visit to the new World of Style showroom by Porter Davis. This is the largest interiors and exteriors showroom in Australia. Although created as a selection centre for Porter Davis clients, it is also open to the general public (you just need to register first online). The centre is designed…(Read More)

Strangely enough I get very excited thinking about Powder Rooms. I have never had one before. Usually our visitors have needed to use the girls’ bathroom. I always find myself apologising in advance just in case there is an unflushed toilet or blobs of toothpaste in the sink! In my mind there are a few…(Read More)

Subway Tiles

by

Subway tiles have always been one of my favourite hard finishes. They originated in 1904 when the New York subways were in need of a durable, stain resistant and good-looking material. It’s fair to say the subway tile has earned icon status. Such a beautiful wall in an otherwise dingy New York subway…(Read More)

There is a bit more colour in this weeks’ Friday’s Favourites, maybe because summer has finally arrived in Melbourne! The sky put on a colourful show last Saturday night too. I have never seen these beautiful pink hues over Flinders Pier. Then a few minutes later there was an incredible sunset. But from an…(Read More)

I am quickly getting back into the routine of school activities….what holiday?! It seems as though summer is finally arriving in Melbourne too. Here are some images that have caught my eye this week. This one almost leaves me speechless, what an incredible entrance. Victoria Hagan I love the monochrome colours in this ensuite…(Read More)

New York Design and Decor

This is the second blogpost from my recent trip to New York, focussing on my inspiring finds in the world of Design and Decor. High on my ‘must visit’ list was the New York Design Center.  This historic building houses nearly 100 showrooms representing some of the country’s finest furniture, fabric and accessories brands…(Read More)

Yes, grey features again on Friday’s Favourites.  I do apologise but it is definitely my favourite ‘neutral’ at the moment. Lilac and Grey is not a common combination but these cool tones can create a soothing and feminine space. It is a great choice for a girls’ bedroom scheme. via Susan Reddick Verandah House…(Read More)

Copper and gold tones have stolen the interiors limelight in recent times but today’s Favourites celebrates a timeless pairing, Silver and Grey.  While grey is also having its moment of glory as a versatile neutral, silver, often seen as chrome or nickel has proven its worth.  It brings the glamour of a metallic to…(Read More)
