Transformed family home

I was just flicking through some of my old projects, and felt like re-visiting one of my favourites from a couple of years ago. I just love the soft green on the walls and the super comfy sofa in this wonderful family room.  This beautiful family home used to be a display home, but with new paint colours, furniture, curtains, blinds, art and accessories throughout we completely transformed it into a very liveable home.

Bathroom Renovation

We're starting a new bathroom renovation at home this week.  It will most likely be a long project as we realistically only have weekends to work on it.  So for the moment we're now selecting paint colours, tiles, taps and basins.  I thought I'd put together a few favourite bathroom looks for some inspiration. 

I love how light and bright this bathroom is, and how gorgeous are these floor tiles? I'm pretty certain grey and white will be our colour scheme. 

The dark and moody feel in this bathroom is stunning.

Timber always looks lovely in a bathroom.  This bathroom has it perfectly balanced with white cupboard doors and a dark floor. 

The green accent tiles just fit perfectly with this perfect view don't you think?

This cabinet is stunning, and I love the marble top.

Which look do you think we should go for?

Built-in shelving - the ultimate space saver

I've been looking into some built-in cabinetry ideas for a client of mine lately.  It's something that really needs to be thought through and designed specifically for your space.  Taking into consideration the style of room, the proportions of the room and what it is you're wanting to put on display and what you want to hide.

Here's a collection of some great built-in designs:

So modern and simple. The white lets the colours of the books, accessories and the floor rug really pop.

I love how they have painted the inside of some of the shelves in a different colour.  And it seems as if they have transformed an unwanted cupboard into open shelves for a reading corner.

A fabulous low built in cabinet in white lightens the space, while giving you some extra space to display art and accessories. 

Practical use of the spaces beside the fireplace. 

I love how these shelves are not only a part of the wall, but become part of the bed by acting as a headboard too.

Built in desk space with extra shelving above. 

Dark shelving on a light wall can add a bit of interest to an otherwise plain wall.  Loving that yellow sofa too!

Some more all white built in cabinets and shelves offer great space to display books and accessories while being able to hide away more mess.

I have a confession, it's a little obsession with black kitchen cabinets.  How stunning and dramatic do they look?  I particularly love them paired with marble and gold.  I would love to have them when we renovate our kitchen. 

Stunning clean lines

Gold and marble accents

This modern industrial look is beautiful

And this classic look with that amazing window.

Welcome home!

Does your entry feel inviting when you enter?  Do you have a nice simple entry or is it the first place people leave all their everyday items? Need a little inspiration? 

Some simple tweaks could easily make it the most inviting place in the house.  A little artwork, some clever storage and a fabulously bold burst of colour would transform what would normally be a boring thoroughfare or dumping ground.  Here are some of my favourite entries:

A bold paint colour
Great storage
A fun colour
Storage and a fun rug
A cute chair and a fabulous poster

Treating your Windows

Dressing a window can be a confusing thing.  Do you want curtains or blinds? What heading style do you want? What fabric? Do you need lining? What about rods or tracks?  Should the fabric skim the floor or puddle? Should the blinds be recess or face fixed? How do you make up your mind?

A lot of people hire Interior Designers just for this purpose, helping out with window treatments only.  It's a great idea to have someone professional to look at your windows and work out what style would suit them best. Not to mention they have a wealth of knowledge on different heading styles, track or rod options, and they have so many fabric options to choose from.  And... they have someone to install them all for you.  Brilliant!

Here are a few different curtain and blind styles to help you out:

Eyelet Curtains 

Timber Shutters

Curtains with Roman Blinds

Inverted Pleat or Box Pleat Curtains

Soft Roman Blinds

Roller Blinds

S-Fold or Ripple Fold Curtains

What do you prefer?

Me? I'm definitely a curtain person.  I love the drape of the fabric, the texture, and the warmth it offers on a cold winters night, and of course the hiding places it offers during hide and seek.

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!
