    Colour of the week – Ivory

    Ivory. Best know as the favourite dress colour for most modern brides. This delicious shade of white gets it’s hue from a dash of yellow and just as it complements any beautiful bride, it is also a perfect colour to use as the base for any room due to it’s warm & inviting hue. Not only as a base, Ivory is one of the few colours that works well in a whole room – walls, floors and furnishings included. Below are some of my favourite examples of how this hue can be used. All White – As mentioned above, a room completely finished and furnished in ivory can be pretty all right! The key here…

    Interior Design Trends 2014 – Blossoming Prints

    This week’s trend focus is Blossoming Prints, and by that I don’t mean the variety that you might find in your grandma’s lounge. Floral prints have come a long way over the yeas, and with modern technologies, we’re seeing some highly creative and bold ideas being implemented with this pretty trend. From simple prints or canvases to decorative sofas & rugs, the days of simply using a floral cushion or lamp shade have definitely passed! Lets take a look at some of the ways this trend is breaking the mould. Just like pairing a pretty dress with a leather jacket, mixing florals with bold modern stripes gives the look a more modern edge…

    Industrial Interiors

    Industrial interiors would have to be the most popular style for loft apartments, old buildings, re-purposed and commercial sites. The style is all about proudly showing off the buildings architecture and using this as the canvas for furnishing and decorating. Industrial spaces are like a naked form – raw and ready to be styled. The look is all about polishing a raw, unfinished look, but without finishing it off. It’s embracing an exposed brick wall, concrete floor or exposed trusses and then adding in furnishings to compliment and enhance the space. This aesthetic works best alongside modern, minimalist or rustic styles and today I’m going to share some key elements of how to achieve this…

    Colour of the Week – Lemon Yellow

    Yellow would have to be one of my favourite colours, so much so that most of our wedding featured around the colour. It’s warm, young, fun and used in the right way can be very sophisticated and modern, which was the exact vibe we were going for on the day. However, be warned – yellow can also go oh-so wrong! Pair with blues and you’ll quickly take a step back into the 90’s. Select the wrong shade or use too much of the colour and you could find yourself being over powered by this bright hue. Go a tinge too green or orange, and your whole space could end up…

    Interior Design Trends 2014 – Bold Graphics

    Bold graphics have been creeping their way into our homes and hearts for a little while now. On cushions, rugs, walls and even ceilings we’re seeing interiors  transform into bold and striking spaces. This ultra modern look works just as well in colour as it does in black and white or neutral palettes. Be it stripes, chevron, spots or other geometric shapes this look is one that I’m predicting will be staying around for a while. Adding bold elements can be done in a variety of ways to virtually any room in the home. Take a look at the below examples for some inspiration on how you could boost the confidence of your abode.…

    Hip-hip-hooray, the count down is on! We officially have only two weeks left of winter and that means all things bright and beautiful are starting to come out of hibernation. Modern graphics are one trend that has been around for a little while and it is so appropriate for this time of year. Bold stripes, chevron, over-sized spots and the like have been finding their way on to walls, furnishings, rugs and accessories in all the best ways possible. They look incredible in modern homes and (in my humble opinion) even better when softened with classic elements. But, life’s not all about design and interiors, so in true Friday fashion, here’s what I’ve…

    Palm Springs Style

    Someone please, take me far away from this cold winter chill! If you are anything like me, it’s about this time of year when I decide I’ve had enough of the cold and am ready for some warmer weather. It’s not just the warmer weather, but the colour & vibrancy that comes along with it. Winter is just way too grey for my liking (even though we’ve hardly had a drop of rain since April!). Usually I start yearning for tropical spaces, filled with salty air, colour and warmth, but this year is different. This year, there is a new yearning in my heart and it’s for a place that up…

    Colour of the week – Sky Blue

    Word on the street is pastels are going to be the next big thing. So, following on from last weeks feature on blush pink, we thought it would be fitting for this week’s colour to be pastel blue. Probably the most calming and gentle colour I can think of, pastel blue is a beautiful choice of colour for any home. In the right tone it can be warm or cool and the colour will always have a welcoming and relaxing effect in any room. Be it bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or lounge-room, pastel blue translates to a variety of spaces. The best part about pastel blue is how versatile it is, from coastal or tropical to modern or…

    Inspire me!

    Today I thought I would do something a little different. We all have days when inspiration is lacking and procrastination is in abundance. When those days hit, sometimes all we need is a little pick me up. Motivational posters can seem so cliché, but surrounding yourself and ensuring what goes into your mind is as positive as what you speak out, is so important to success! Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. Here is some of my favourite quotes that I often use to spike up my inspiration and get me moving. Whether is to…
