I first, and last, shared a complete tour of my master bedroom waaaay back in 2010. It was a time when I still ignored the kid’s department in Kmart, thought ‘twitter’ was simply the sound a bird made, could wear a white shirt and keep it clean all day long, and had no idea how ....Continue reading….
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you probably remember this simple robe door makeover from about a year ago…. When I re-decorated my master bedroom, I simply painted the ugly beige metal surround with enamel spray paint to create a more cohesive (i.e. less ugly) look. I thought some readers, who may be entertaining ....Continue reading….
WARNING: Real life stuff coming up. I know many of my readers visit purely for decorating inspiration so if you’re simply interested in seeing some pretty pictures then scroll straight to the bottom where you can read more about this….

Firstly, thanks so much to everyone for all the baby well wishes – you guys are just too sweet :-) Now, on to some decorating stuff!!! I wanted to finally share the little face-lift I gave my master bedroom built-in robe. Remember how a little while ago I put out an S.O.S for some dummy strap hinges like ....Continue reading….
Before I began my master bedroom revamp I knew I wanted some rustic timber to keep the space warm and grounded, however finding the right pieces to ‘restore’ rather than ‘refurb’ is easier said than done. We all know how easy and effective slapping a fresh coat of paint on a piece of furniture can be – not only does ....Continue reading….
Remember this little cabinet from my bedroom reveal? I reckon this early 1900′s cupboard was originally some kind of kitchen dry store or food safe though I picked it up for $60 off eBay knowing it would be a perfect new house for all our shoes. This was the simplest of makeovers. I really wanted to retain the chippy, ....Continue reading….
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about my bedroom revamp. One of the most mentioned and asked about items was the armoire. Well, ‘armoire’ is perhaps a tad too fancy, it’s just a plain free-standing robe really. It was funny to read all the different comments eluding to its colour. Most of you thought it ....Continue reading….
Some interesting wall angles and the need for tonnes of storage really dictated the design for our master bedroom. Function and budget were high priorities so I decided to work ‘pretty’ around ‘practical’. The neutral palette combines loads of natural texture with vintage elements for a relaxed yet fresh feel. While there are still a ....Continue reading….
I gave up my search for a beautiful natural linen throw blanket a while back now. It wasn’t because I couldn’t find one for a reasonable price mind you, it was cause I couldn’t find one at ALL (though if I had I’m sure it would have cost a pretty penny anyways). From the get-go I wanted to include ....Continue reading….
Hey guys. Just popping in for a quick one today to share this budget wall art idea using inexpensive frames and gift wrap. (Kmart picture frames and Cavallini gift wrap maps). I know, I know, nothing earth shattering though affordable and effective. (In case you’re extra observant and are wondering why South America is next ....Continue reading….
