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)

Orange and Blue are two of my favourite colours.  Together they make a great pair as they are complementary, being opposite each other on the colour wheel.  The vibrance of the orange is offset by the calming blue. via via via While orange with mid-blue provides a fresh and coastal feel, when combined with…(Read More)

The saying goes ‘Blue and Green should never be seen without a colour in between’ but I say why not?  Depending on what shades that are paired, a different look can be achieved.  One of my favourites is Navy blue and Kelly green as used in this beautiful bedroom from Luxe Addition. via   The…(Read More)

Mint green is such a versatile colour that instantly creates a sense of calm.  It pairs well with many colours but my favourite combination is with white.  These following kitchen images show how it can be introduced in different ways. Mint green paintwork on the lower joinery and as a feature behind the open shelving…(Read More)

As the temperature drops in Melbourne, I find my escape in images of beautiful coastal homes.  One of my favourite summer palettes is Navy with a Neutral.  I particularly like the mix of navy and a natural element such as rattan.  It reminds me of the classic Ralph Lauren beach house style, luxurious yet comfortable…(Read More)

Bedroom Blues


Thankfully we sold our house last month at auction.  Although we are madly house hunting before settlement date, I am starting to feel nostalgic about leaving this place we’ve called home for the past ten years.  When we initially moved into our Californian Bungalow, it was awash with dusky pink.  There was evidence in…(Read More)

I confess that I get very excited when I see a beautiful blue and white space.  According to the colour experts, blue evokes feelings of calmness and serenity, which is just as well given it is the main colour I used in my bedroom (more on that to come).  When paired with white, I think…(Read More)

Not wanting to offend any purple-lovers out there but I’m not personally a big fan of the shade.  But talk about plum, mauve, lilac……well that’s another story.  Since the colour Radiant Orchid earned the title of Pantone’s Colour of the Year, purple seems to have had a resurgence in the…(Read More)

Maybe it’s a trait of my Cancerian star sign but I do like to collect the odd thing or two.  My latest little penchant is for needlepoint cushions.  Not the old fashioned embroidered ones from yesteryear but the brightly coloured and fun 21st century variety.  The recent resurrection of needlepoint seems to have been…(Read More)

Is white actually a colour?  Google this question and there are many different responses from artists and scientists alike.   Not getting bogged down in technicalities, I am more interested in how the colour white looks and makes me feel when used in a space. I find that too much white makes a room feel…(Read More)

I am loving the colour coral right now. It is softer than orange, with a hint of pink.  Coral is not a colour I see a lot in home decorating, yet it is quite versatile.   It looks great against white, but also pairs well with navy, mint, turquoise and taupe.    Accessories: Florence Broadhurst…(Read More)
