Artwork has the ability to add colour, depth and interest to a space. Clients are often asking where to source affordable artwork and we are so lucky that it is more accessible than ever. Artwork is such a personal thing, so I like to provide my clients with a range of options that could work…(Read More)

I have recently returned from a whirlwind week in New York. My husband had to go there for work and I was lucky enough to tag along (without kids) :). It is such an inspiring city in so many ways, but I really love seeing the homewares, decor and furnishings. Being a shopping mecca and having…(Read More)

I have recently had a run of clients asking for advice on how to fill a blank wall space in their home. Many of them have been staring at a white expanse for ages, unsure of what to fill it with and scared to commit. My answer generally depends on the size to be filled…(Read More)

Yesterday I paid a visit to the annual Decor and Design Show. This is one of my favourite Interiors events which showcases the latest furniture and decor products in Australia. There was so much to take but here are a few of my favourites. There is a definite blue theme going on! I love the…(Read More)

It is great to see so many gorgeous new homewares in stores for autumn/winter. While all of my furniture and homewares have been in storage for the past 10 months, I am sure I must be ‘nesting’. Hopefully I still love them when I unpack but in the meantime, here are My Top 10…(Read More)

The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb has been on my bucket list for a while now. I am excited to say that last weekend I ticked it off (and dragged my poor mum with me, Happy Mother’s Day)! I would highly recommend this incredible experience. The views are spectacular and it was expertly run from…(Read More)

As you probably know by now, I love U.S. retail, especially their homewares. It might be their extensive ranges, the creative way they merchandise or the outstanding customer service that sets them apart. Fortunately for us Aussies, many of the stores are now shipping to Australia. I know the exchange rate at the moment…(Read More)

Hawaii Four-O


I promise this is the last you will hear about my turning the big 40! I did want to share some photos of our recent celebratory trip to Hawaii which I named the ‘Hawaii Four-O’ tour. Hawaii is one of my favourite holiday destinations. I visited there two years ago and knew I wanted…(Read More)

Blue and white lovers brace yourself. This week I wanted to share my secret ‘go to’ shop for beautiful home accessories, Portobello Home. Portobello stocks classic lifestyle pieces that have been carefully selected by it’s owners Catherine and Bronwyn. From blue and white ceramics, brass homewares, cushions and sisal rugs. Styling a shelf with…(Read More)

I have heard so much about the new Country Road Sorrento store. Last weekend I finally got the opportunity to check it out. It has taken over the historic post office building in the main street of Sorrento. This is the first of their new complete lifestyle stores. I love the fusion of fashion for…(Read More)

I wanted to share with you one of my favourite shopping destinations in Melbourne. A place close to my heart, Montebello Emporium.  After completing my Interior Design Diploma (with IDI) four years ago, I was lucky enough to ‘work’ here for three of these.  Not that it was work at all.  Having exposure to beautiful…(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)

Fashion Styling Session


Something a bit different on this weeks’ Gallerie B blogpost. I recently had a clothing epiphany. For some time now I have been in a ‘fashion rut’. Looking in my wardrobe, I felt as though nothing co-ordinated and the same brands were jumping out at me. Cue Lisa Iurada, Personal Fashion Stylist from Cocoon…(Read More)

For those following my Instagram and Facebook, you will know that my trip to Singapore wasn’t without its dramas.  In a nutshell, I arrived at the airport with hubbie and the kids only to be told I could not travel as I didn’t have six months validity on my passport (I had 3…(Read More)
