Colour Inspiration

Here's a little colour inspiration for the day.  How gorgeous are these flowers! My favourite Dahlias and some stunning Poppies.  Perfect for that punch of colour in your house.  Would you do a colour scheme based on these amazing colours? 

Enjoy your day!

We love new things

The thing I love about a new year is the new product that arrives in our favourite stores.  All our favourite suppliers bring out a whole lot of new product and we just love checking it all out.  
I love decorating kid's rooms and play rooms, they are just so much fun.  Pottery Barn Kids has some fabulous storage and furniture ideas,  not to mention some really cute bed linen all for kids.  Check out a few of our favourite new things from Pottery Barn Kids:


How gorgeous is the bedlinen with the rainbows? I think my little girl needs them in her room, so sweet!  Could you see any of these fabulous new goodies in your kid's room?

Outdoor Living

It's such a beautiful day where I am today, and it just makes me want to be outside.  Here's a little outdoor living inspiration for you.

Images are from here

It's easy enough to add a little Interior Design to your outdoor space and make it feel like part of the interior too.  Coffee tables, scatter cushions, a super comfy chair or hammock, a few accessories, a cocktail and you're done!

Project Re-Visit

It's February already! Can you believe it?
What better way to start the new month by re-visiting one of our favourite projects.  I want to show you some amazing transformations.  A kitchen before and after, and the focal fireplace before and after.  It is now a very beautiful, yet functional family home.

Do you love it as much as we do?  We love the custom cabinetry, the black glass splashback and the fabulous new rangehood.  Actually we love it all.

Happier walls

Australian artist Clair Brenman creates the most beautiful, colourful, nature inspired art.  
She's from the Yarra Valley, where there is an abundance of natural inspiration... not to mention awesome wine and cheese!  I need a project to put one of these in...

Check out more of her work here, and let me know if you want some help incorporating one of her pieces in your home.

It's been a while...

Hi Everyone, we're back on the blog!  After a couple of years away from here we have returned to spend a little more time with you all.  Looking forward to showing you a few sneak peeks into our projects and a whole lot of inspiration and insight into interior design! 

Here is a photo of an entry way we completed a couple of weeks ago.  I just love that painting.  I have worked with these clients on two of their homes in the last 4 years, and I will be terribly sad when I have nothing more to select for them. 

To see more of our projects or more inspirational pics, head over to our Facebook page, Instagram or Pinterest boards.  And please have a look at our website for more information on our design services.

Retro Inspiration - Home interiors with a retro feel

As you can see from a previous post, my husband and I love Madmen.  Its not just the storyline... in fact, its not really the story line at all, it's the attention to detail in the set design, and the fabulous retro furniture that captures our attention.

It's got me perusing the Internet looking for some great modern interiors with Danish design furniture, wood panelling, and colours of the 60s.

Here's what I found, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do:

This room is so fresh and light. Love the colour scheme and how the wood adds that essential touch of warmth to the room.

The fireplace makes this room look ultra comfy.  The lounge chair and the wood panelling add that "retro" feel while still looking modern.

The Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs are perfect at the modern waterfall table. Is that an Ikea daisy pendant lamp that I spy?

The black and white with a touch of wood. Perfect.

The Swan chair is an iconic piece of Danish design.  It sits perfectly with a modern surrounding.

Loving this monochromatic colour scheme.  Both the Wishbone and the Wing chairs look fabulous in these blue hues.
