Sofa Table Styling

I’m sure I’m not alone in labeling the act of accessorising one of the most transformative and enjoyable in home beautification. Not only does this final layer help bring a room to life, it’s also just plain fun messing around with a bunch of beautiful objects (and, as far as decorating on a budget goes, ....Continue reading….

New Reader-Based Consultation Segment…and a room before and after!

3D Room Design

A little while back now I was contacted by one of my lovely local readers who was seeking some design advice. She was actually enquiring about ‘hiring’ me to help, and whilst this is something I’ve done in the past, the timing was just a little off for me so I felt uncomfortable committing to ....Continue reading….

A Master Bedroom Makeover

Classic Bedroom Refresh

Just as promised here is the reveal of my parent’s refreshed master bedroom! I know, crazy right? I must be getting efficient or something. I hope you were sitting down. Anyhoo, as eluded to in an earlier post, it’s not one of those “full-on” kinda makeovers though the change is still pretty substantial and mum ....Continue reading….

Home Office Reveal!

Home Office Reveal!

As promised, here is the reveal of my transformed home office space! It’s nothing spectacular, and there’ll probably be some future tweaking, though for now I’m calling it done! Oh, and if you missed the awards ceremony, don’t worry, you can congratulate me later. Huh, what’s that? You didn’t hear? Well, I broke the world ....Continue reading….

Master Bedroom Mini Makeover

Master Bedroom Mini Makeover

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….

Living Room Mini Makeover and Photo Shoot

Living Room Mini Makeover and Photo Shoot

As briefly mentioned in my last post, recently I spent a few days hurrying around the house replacing most of Charlotte’s strewn toys with pretty décor accents instead to shoot some of my rooms for inclusion in an upcoming blogger design book! I loved having the excuse to dress-up the house with, what is now, the otherwise ....Continue reading….

A Makeover for my Entryway

A Makeover for my Entryway

If you’re not new here you might be wondering just what’s going on with my previously blogged about home office space. Well, between scrubbing breakfast cereal off my walls (no-one warned me that, once dry, milk and weetbix actually forms a NASA-grade adhesive) and all of life’s other rigmarole, the room has actually been slowly evolving and is finally nearly ....Continue reading….

Living Room Update

Living Room Update

Beside delegation, the key to good time management is prioritisation, right? So, amongst caring for a seven month old, running a household, working on furniture revivals and design consultations and pretending to be a web developer, what’s another important task? Well, teaching yourself to juggle of course (yep, you read right, my current record is ....Continue reading….

Tolix Chairs for the Dining Room!

Tolix Chairs for the Dining Room

Have I mentioned my complex? The one about buying furniture brand new? Seriously, I mean complex. The whole concept is just an enigma to me. Don’t get me wrong though, I know second-hand is not always the best way to go though if I happen to spy you buying something so generic they sell one every five seconds on eBay for just fifty ....Continue reading….

The Nursery Reveal!

The Nursery Reveal

Before Charlotte actually out-grows her cot I thought I’d better finish off her room! Well, for that reason and also cause it’s about time I finally shared it on my blog! Of course it would have been completed four months ago, before she actually arrived in the world, if it hadn’t been for my pesky eight week ....Continue reading….
