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)

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)

Just checking in to see how everyone is going in isolation? There are lots of things that I am missing such as seeing family, eating out and catching up with friends. On the flip side it has been great to have more time to do those jobs that aren’t usually a priority. So I…(Read More)

Things are definitely scary at the moment. In these uncertain times it seems that how we live and co-exist, is changing by the day. I am finding it’s the little things and daily routines, like taking time for a coffee break, are helping to maintain normality and keeping me sane. When Jura approached…(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)

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)

Ahhhh…..is it too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year? I know it has been a while between blogposts (thanks so much to those who are still hanging in there!) but I wanted to start off 2019 with a topic close to my heart…..wall lights (or wall sconces as they are often…(Read More)

It’s hard to believe that we have nearly been in the house for two years! Time has flown and there are still some minor decorating pieces I am looking out for (ie. artwork) but otherwise we are all feeling very settled. One thing that I am really loving is seeing how much the garden…(Read More)

Welcome to Gallerie B’s first blogpost for 2018! It has been a while between posts but there has been a lot of exciting things happening in the past couple of months. My biggest news is that the Home Beautiful magazine feature of my home has finally been published in the current March edition. A…(Read More)

Creating A Restful Retreat

by

Ahhh, how quickly has December crept up on us this year? Despite the craziness, I love this time of year. The warm weather, festive vibes and diversion from the usual routine. Not to mention the Christmas decorating. I am so slack these days with sending out Christmas cards but always loved receiving them. I was…(Read More)

Around Here Lately……

by

It is busy times at Gallerie B central with some exciting projects underway. I thought since it has been a while between posts, I would share some of the things I am working on. I have some lovely clients who are trusting me with the design and decoration of their renovations. Gallerie B offers a…(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)

Apologies for the lack of blog posting lately, it sounds so cliched but I don’t know where the time goes! I can’t believe we have been in our house for nearly 8 months. It definitely feels like home. Of course I love its aesthetics but one of the biggest pluses is that it…(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)

A Coastal Dream Home

by

Happy (belated!) New Year everyone. I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable festive season. I spent a great summer at the beach, spending quality time with my family and catching up with friends. Just what I needed to re-charge the batteries and feel inspired for 2017. I can’t believe we are already…(Read More)

‘Tis The Season

by

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)

I have undertaken several small reno’s in the past but nothing is like building your own home from scratch. Call me crazy but I likened the process to (a very long!) pregnancy. There are the highs and lows and you know there is an amazing reward at the end of the journey. Along the…(Read More)

We have been in our new house for one month now and it hasn’t taken long for it to feel like home. There are so many little things that I am loving but one of the big things is the Butler’s Pantry. I have never had a great amount of pantry storage in…(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)

Friday’s Favourites

by

This week is the start of new beginnings for me that bring with them mixed feelings. I am so excited that this time next week we will be in our new home. On the other hand I feel sad that this is my last Friday’s Favourites post. I will definitely still be blogging, just…(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)

Spring has definitely sprung here (but you never really know in Melbourne)! We spent Father’s Day at our beach house and a morning walk gave me a taste for summer days ahead. And on our new build front, here is the outcome of the garage door debate. My hubby wanted to keep it cedar…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

It has been a big week of installations at our new build. The wallpaper and lighting have gone in. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos to share yet as I need to steer clear while the flooring is being laid. I can show you this piece of feature wallpaper that has been installed somewhere…(Read More)

I am a long time fan of rattan! I love how it instantly brings texture to a space where hard surfaces dominate, and reminds me of coastal holidays. It is a versatile and affordable decorating accessory and available in many shapes and sizes. Here are my 4 Ways to Introduce Rattan Into Your Home. 1…(Read More)

Friday’s Favourites

I shared the newly installed pineapple wallpaper in the girls’ powder room on Instagram and FB this week. This Rifle Paper Co wallpaper has been on my wish list for a while now, I love the colour palette (and the pineapples!) and thought it would be perfect for this small space. I included a round…(Read More)
