The words “custom” and “furniture” immediately makes you think expensive don’t they? Well, you are incorrect! A lot of the furniture I select for clients are custom made for their project. That’s not because my clients have tens of thousands of dollars to spend on the project but because I know the right people to make it happen so they get exactly what they want!
The most popular items of furniture to be custom made are sofas. I send my clients a selection of sofa styles that meet their tastes and style descriptions, we decide on a fabric after having samples posted to them and then my sofa supplier gets to work making the sofa to the specifications my client needs. It’s a pretty easy process and relatively inexpensive as you get to go straight to the source. PLUS, most clients are not even Sydney based so this can all be arranged via email to rural areas or other capital cities. Easy. Peasy. Lemon. Squeezy.

Remember a few months ago I was on the hunt for a piece of furniture that needed a little bit of TLC for a project asked me to be part of? Well here he is in all his glory after a lovely limewash finish and some love from (Thanks Kellie!). I had some help from my lovely upholsterer Peter from too because let’s face it, there’s no way I could have made the seat look like that!
He’ll be up for auction on May 9th with all funds being donated to Salvo Stores.
I think I might have to bid on him… Don’t want him to leave me!
I’ve got a weakness for candles. It’s no secret. And there’s just something special about the Palm Beach Collection candles…Perhaps it’s because I grew up going to Palm Beach as a kid and still get blown away by the beauty of that beach.
A few weeks ago I met Kirsten Walker, one half of Candles and had a great time talking candles and scents!
The PBC stand at the recent trade fairs was hands down my favourite and it’s all due to the talented peeps at in Newport. They also styled the recent PBC photoshoot. Aren’t the images just gorgeous?!
Ok, confession, I didn’t actually buy this book, it was given to me at Shaynna’s Taubmans high tea I attended the other day. But it’s absolutely fab, lots of practical advice for homeowners looking to either engage an interior designer or to DIY decorate.
Highly recommend it! Buy it .

I visited the Signature Prints warehouse/showroom last week and was lucky enough to watch their talented team printing some custom wallpapers while I was there. It is such a fascinating and special process. I could have stayed all day to watch! It is all done by hand, painstaking! Each piece that is screen printed needs to be aligned with the piece before it so that it’s a consistent print the whole way through, one millimetre can throw the whole thing out….. This peacock feather print is a custom colour for a little girl’s bedroom. Lucky her!

Last Thursday night I attended the Design Hunter’s first birthday. is a gorgeous homewares and furniture store in Bronte run by Mel Bonney, a super talented interior stylist and designer. Her store is one of the most beautifully styled and merchandised I’ve seen in Sydney, Mel’s eye for design is just fab! If you’re in Sydney and haven’t found Mel’s store yet, it’s so worth a look.
