    10 kitchen details I’m totally in love with

    Wednesday’s are a day for me where I get to have a bit of “me time” in the afternoon. My little one is at daycare, I’ve completed my work and all my chores are (ideally) done. It’s the one time of the week I carve out for me and most often, I find myself on here blogging or lusting my time away on Pinterest. With that in mind I thought I’d start sharing what I’ve been crushing on of late… First up – Kitchens! 1. Midnight blue kitchen islands 2. Encaustic floor tiles 3. Free standing ovens 4. Brass hardware 5. Apron sinks 7. Geometric tiles 8. Symmetry 9. A walk…

    A cushy world – Winter Cushion Combinations

    When I think of winter, I think of rich textures, warm colours, lots of layers and a sweet comfy spot to snuggle up into. Fragrant spices like turmeric, paprika or cinnamon give me the feeling of warmth and it's these colours that often inspire my winter colour palettes...

    Style Stakes: Sheepskin Rugs

    If there is one thing I've learnt about rugging up for the cooler months, it's the more texture the better. While spring and summer are all about colour, autumn & winter are all about layers. So it's no surprise that over the past few months...

    Rustic French

    Nope, sadly this post is not about bread but if you happen to be munching on some crusty baguette while reading, bonus points for you! Today I’m talking about Rustic French interiors and there are a couple of words that automatically come to mind when I think of this style – rustic, glam, natural and elegant. It’s a look that is really only suited to specific criteria, but that doesn’t mean it’s a look that can’t be enjoyed by many. Rustic French interiors reveal a humble side of French design, that is stripped back to reveal the natural beauty and then highlighted by elegant French pieces, be it a glamorous chandelier or classic Louis chair…

    7 Vignettes – April

    I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break, I’m not sure about you but ours felt much longer than 4 days which was really nice. Being a long weekend, #7Vignettes for this month was made that much sweeter as I had some more time on my hands to really play with my vignettes. In the end I was really happy with how all my little combinations came together  – that 2hr photography course I had been meaning to do for nearly two years must have taught me something! Below are my images from this month, I hope you enjoy them as much I enjoyed tucking into those Easter eggs once all my…

    Style Stakes: French Beaded Chandeliers

    You may or may not have noticed but there has been a sudden surge of French beaded chandeliers appearing in stores, magazines and high end homes. This latest style in pendant lighting is hitting my instagram feed pretty hard right now and I have not one single complaint about it. These pieces mean serious business in the style stakes and I think they are absolutely gorgeous. If you have high ceilings and want to add a little (or a lot of) wow factor or you have a great space outdoors, they are definitely worth some consideration. Ranging in price from around $600 and up, they are not the best budget-friendly option, but on…

    7 Vignettes – March

    At the start of each month Interiors Addict host a 7-day competition called 7 Vignettes. I’ve always wanted to play but have felt a little intimidated, however with the start of a new year I thought – why not? So, at the start of this year I resolved to join in and share some of my own little creations each month. I’m now (already?!) onto my third month of play – you can check out my January & February creations here & here. This months theme was sponsored by Keeki, a Melbourne based furniture & homewares company and the themes were broader than past months – oddly making the creative process a bit more of a challenge! Check out images below of the vignettes…
