I don’t know about you but I am a huge fan of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ show “Fixer Upper”. If you watch the show you will no doubt have heard the term ‘shiplap’ used on many occasions. Joanna loves it and uses it in many different ways in nearly every house makeover. It has…(Read More)

You might have noticed the recent trend of feature floor tiles in the bathroom. I love the pattern and personality these tiles add. Darren and Dea used a black and white encaustic concrete tile in their bathroom on The Block Glasshouse. It brought interest to their bathroom which still maintained a classic feel through its…(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)

Friday’s Favourites


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)

Friday’s Favourites


I love this time of year in Melbourne. The Australian Open tennis is on, the days are long and the BBQ is working overtime. I know that this time next week it will all be over and replaced with the daily school routine. So I am trying to enjoy the simple things…… ……along with some…(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)

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)

Last year I wrote a blogpost on my love of geometric wallpaper, in particular Thibaut’s Graphic Resource range (here). Thibaut have recently launched a new Geometric Resource 2 Collection of wallpaper. The range is gorgeous and each pattern comes in several colourways (click on the link). Here are some of my favourites. Portier Flock…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites


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)

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)

In the ‘spirit’ (sorry!) of Halloween, today’s Friday’s Favourites are Orange and Black.  Believe it or not, I have found some beautiful spaces where these two colours are used, usually in combination with a little (or a lot) of white. via via ML Interior Design via Greg Natale Mona Ross Berman via House…(Read More)

Apologies to my Gallerie B subscribers for this post being a day late.  We arrived home yesterday from a quick trip to Hayman Island (amazing!) and internet speed was frustratingly slow up there.  But more on that to come. Today’s post is about Black Internal Doors.  I recently noticed that these were a recurring…(Read More)

Daybed Dreaming


The Diane Bergeron designed daybed that I picked up for a song at the Design for Mirabel Event (here) arrived at my 1980s house.  It is currently sitting in an unused ‘nook’ in our bedroom but really isn’t having its moment of glory with the peach carpet and icy blue/grey walls. I do…(Read More)

The pairing of black and white is timeless.  It is not only seen in modern interiors but has endless possibilities in all design styles.  Black and white together can produce a sophisticated and classic look.  It is versatile too, when you need a change, just throw in a pop of unexpected colour to break up…(Read More)
