    Colour of the week: Aqua

    Lets dive right in, this week we are loving Aqua. This cool, summery tone is one that has been popular for a while and I don’t see it dropping off the radar anytime soon. Being a close relative to blue – known for peace, loyalty and creating a sense of calm – our colour this week has very similar properties and used in the right way can instantly take you to a tranquil paradise… In the Dining Room:  In the Kitchen:  In the Lounge Room:  In the Bedroom: And even in the Bathroom:

    Why I love The Hamptons

    Aah The Hamptons, filled with such beauty and a relaxed coastal vibe, this is one destination that is right up the top of my bucket list. If only for a day, to gaze at the beauty of all the homes and architecture. My number one style in a nutshell would have to be the hamptons. I could talk for days about all the things I love about this gorgeous style, but you know what they say about a picture and a thousand words? Well, here’s five thousand words to describe the beauty of The Hamptons (but just to be sure, I’ll throw in a few of my own words too). It’s…

    Interior Design Trends 2014 – Interchangeable Accents

    Chameleons rejoice, this one is for you! Today’s trend focus is Interchangeable Accents, and it’s one that sits close to my heart. I absolutely love this trend and really believe it’s one that will stick around for a while. Accents are one of the best ways to create big bang for minimum buck, they can completely change the look of a room and give your space a unique personality. The secret here is to start with a versatile, neutral base. This means your flooring, walls and core furniture pieces (think: sofa, dining table, TV unit, etc) are all relatively neutral. You may wish to have a base style such as more modern…

    Colour of the week – Emerald Green

    Hey Folks, We thought it would be great to start a little series that goes by the name “Colour of the Week”. To kick things off we will start with Emerald Green, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013. I would suggest that Emerald Green is a colour that is best suited to living spaces such as your living & lounge rooms, dining room or kitchen. That being said, in small doses anything goes! Emerald Green is a colour that we don’t see super frequently in interior spaces. If you were wanting to decorate with this colour, inspiration could be a little lacking, however, that’s not say you can not create a…

    Interior Design Trends 2014 – Glamour

    There are a few styles in the design world that will stop me in my tracks, turn me around and have me lingering for a few extra seconds, and glamorous interiors definitely fall into that category. We can thank The Great Gatsby for this one, with all the opulent and lavish scenes we saw on the big screen, it’s no wonder we’ve been seeing glamorous Gatsby themed parties, weddings and interiors ever since. In Australia, Greg Natale comes to mind as one of the best in creating glamorous interiors. His exquisite styling is spot on every time – take a look at his work here. What do you think?  If you love what Greg creates as much…

    Happy Bastille Day!

    Today we’re celebrating all things French for Bastille Day! French Interiors can bring a number of different styles to mind, think: Shabby-Chic, Rustic French, or the glamour of Parisian style. All are unique in their own right, yet together tell a beautiful French story. I personally adore all things French, be it their style in the home, in fashion or in food – who could say no to a fresh, buttery croissant?  So with that in mind, lets take a moment to honour this country who has given us so much to drool over!   Happy Bastille Day! x

    Can you believe its already Friday again? I’m so excited for the weekend, although smack bang in the middle of winter here, Sydney has been experiencing some beautiful, crisp, sunnies days and I’m super keen to get out for a hike by the coast. Last night we started putting our kitchen cabinets together and I can already see how great it’s all going to look! Starting this process has really inspired me this week and I’ve been busily searching out gorgeous-ness all over the web. So with that being said, here’s a few things I’ve been lovin’ this week! A lovely, bright, navy and coral bedroom Open shelving styled oh-so brilliantly These Marble polished…

    Interior Design Trends 2014 – Need Navy Now

    Each Monday, we’ll be exploring some of the current Design Trends of 2014. To kick it off, I thought we’d start with one of my favourites – navy. Navy is the colour du jour right now and why not? It’s a cool and calming colour, signifying loyalty, strength and honesty, and the colour doesn’t quite jump out like black, but instead draws us in. So how can you incorporate some navy into your home? Take a peek below to see some of my favourite navy rooms and accents. 1. Dine in classic elegance with navy upholstered chairs 2. Sleep in a serene navy oasis 3. Add in a pop of bright colour  4.…

    Kitchen – Before

    Over the new few weeks, Andrew and I will (finally) be remodeling our kitchen! It’s something we’ve dreamed of doing for over 3 years, and I almost can’t believe it’s really happening! So later today, once the man finishes work, we’re off to place the order for it all (eek)! Stay tuned for upcoming posts of us tearing out the old, building and installing the new. Can’t wait to show you the finished project!
