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)

Friday’s Favourites


Friday’s Favourites starts off with a few pics from our recent Merimbula mini holiday. Mr Gallerie B and I (sans kids), along with 4 other couples flew up for the long weekend. We had a wonderful time, including the small plane ride there and back. No flight attendants, or even toilets on board was…(Read More)

Lately I have had a few clients in the market for new dining chairs. One of the main concerns they all have is matching the timber stain of the chair to the table. A look I love that combats this issue is to introduce a colour in the dining chairs. More recently, I have noticed…(Read More)

Happy 2016 everyone and welcome back to the first Friday’s Favourites for the year. I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas and New Year’s. I have lots of exciting plans for Gallerie B this year and would love for you to come along for the ride. The down side to these…(Read More)

I have a confession to make, I feel like Scrooge. I have taken a year off from the Christmas decorating scene. Not being in our own home, plus having all our decorations and crafty bits and pieces in storage has meant an apathetic effort this year. Apart from my token Christmas Candle and Wreath, even…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites


My week started with the announcement of Pantone’s Colour for 2016. I must say I was relieved to say goodbye to this year’s Marsala, not one of my favourite interior colours! For the first time, it includes the blending of two shades; Rose Quartz and Serenity. When used together Pantone suggests that a…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites takes on a Christmas theme this week. A big thank you to the lovely Kylie and Sam from DIY Decorator for including me in their Christmas Wreath Showcase. This is an opportunity for 12 Australian bloggers to share their wreaths and Christmas style. I gave my bell wreath (purchased recently from the…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites


I had a bit of a surreal moment this week, meeting Jonathan Adler at a cocktail evening hosted by Coco Republic. I featured his incredible Soho store in my New York post last year. From his ceramics to furniture and homewares, I love the attention to detail in his colourful, whimsical and stylish pieces. He…(Read More)

There is something about hydrangeas that I have always loved. They have been on my radar from an early age. We had a long row planted along the driveway of my childhood home. I remember each year my dad would get into trouble (from mum!) for pruning them to a wooden stump. But sure enough…(Read More)

New Fabrics For Spring


I am loving some of the fabric ranges that are in the showrooms at the moment. Lots of pretty patterns and colours. I am visualising them as roman blinds, cushions, ottomans. I get very excited, fabrics are one of my weaknesses! I thought I would share some of my favourites. Warwick: The new Cornucopia range…(Read More)

It’s no secret that I love wallpaper. It might stem back to my scrapbooking days (yep, it’s out there now!) where my weekly patterned paper purchase was an indulgence. To me, wallpaper can be the icing on the cake in a room. It’s the decorating piece that adds the personality through its…(Read More)

I must admit, an Occasional or Accent chair is one of my favourite decorating items. My perfect occasional chair has some crucial features. It must be comfy and look appealing. It needs to be a one of a kind piece. And my top requirement is that it is upholstered in a gorgeous fabric. This is…(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)

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


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)

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)

I love this time of year for so many reasons as I’m sure most of you do. I really enjoy the colours of Christmas, in the decorations, lights, gift wrap…..  The Christmas tree will always bring some cheerful colour into the home. I have usually stuck to the more traditional red and green myself…(Read More)

According to the Dulux colour forecast for 2015 (from Interiors Addict), pink and green are right on trend.  Pink is such a versatile colour and I love it bold or in a softer pastel.  Natural colours such as green are also set to dominate.  When combined with white, stronger shades of the two can create…(Read More)

Girls’ Bedroom Makeover


The girls’ bedroom at the beach house has been undergoing a mini-makeover since we moved in (nearly three years ago!).  When we bought the house, the room was used as a TV/sitting room.  We thought the space was perfect to use as the girls’ ‘getaway’ and will hopefully see them through their teen…(Read More)

Navy and Pink are two of my favourite colours.  When combined, they create a ‘preppy’ look that I love.  Navy provides depth while pink adds some girly fun.  Although these two colours are strong, they can be softened by adding elements of white. via What a fabulous girls’ bathroom. via via Only Mary McDonald could…(Read More)

Pink and Orange might not be in the forefront of your mind when looking for colour inspiration, but I wanted to show how fun they can look together.  They are an unexpected pairing that provide an energy to a room. In her usual colourful way, Maria Barros has used pink and orange to brighten a…(Read More)

I am seeing Pink and Gold popping up everywhere in the interiors and homewares scene.  I’m loving this feminine and pretty combination. Monika from The Doctor’s Closet blog has introduced these colours to create a beautiful home office.  She has used the gold shelves to introduce pops of pink in her accessories.  Love…(Read More)
