I have just received these photos from my recent session with Suzi Appel Photography and am excited to share with you our Balwyn project reveal. Although the clients have only been in their new home for a few months, it already has such a warm and homely feel. Working with them to select and order…(Read More)

My Four Favourite Mirrors


Happy New Year and best wishes for 2020! I hate the word ‘resolutions’ but one of my ‘goals’ for 2020 is to get back writing blogposts and sharing more design and decorating tips. So I know it’s February already but here we go….. I feel very fortunate to have some beautiful projects on the…(Read More)

There is a lot happening at Gallerie B central at the moment (hence the lack of blogpost action!). I am working on some great projects and can hopefully share some beautiful ‘after’ images with you soon. In the meantime, I thought it might be helpful to share some tips for a decorating area that is…(Read More)

‘Tis The Season


It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again. In saying that though, it couldn’t come quick enough. I have been really excited to decorate our home for its first Christmas. It’s crazy but our faux fir staircase garland was one of the very first things I bought for the house…(Read More)

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely words and support during our move to the new house. I am still pinching myself that we are finally in! In all, the process has been extremely rewarding. So many decisions involved (my grey hairs are appearing with a vengeance!) but I am already missing my fortnightly catch…(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)

Friday’s Favourites


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)

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)

Friday’s Favourites


I thought I would start off this week’s Friday’s Favourites by sharing a bit of colour inspo with you. Dulux released their 2016 Colour Forecast last week at the Meizai showroom and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview. There were four separate ‘trends’ revealed. 1. Biofragility A subtle palette taking…(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)

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)

Choosing pendant lights for our new kitchen is one thing I am very excited about. The countdown is on for our demolition. Although we don’t have an exact date yet, I have mentally already moved out and am loving the planning phase. I have decided to have feature pendants above the kitchen island bench…(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)

Top 5 Christmas Candles


Candles are one of my weaknesses and I love seeing the Limited Edition Christmas ranges that pop up in stores around this time. My ‘go to’ each year is the Glasshouse Night Before Christmas “Sugar Plums’ candle. As soon as I light it on December 1, the Christmas vibe begins in our house.  I was…(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)
