I’m gathering as much inspiration as I can for a project I’m working on in a beach side town. These are a few stand outs for me that will guide me through the initial design stages. I’m thoroughly enjoying this project!

Where do you usually gather your decorating inspiration?
Last week was a busy one, I’ve got quite a few Sydney based projects on the go and two Melbourne based e-decorating projects as well as fitting in my buying and styling work for thehome.com.au and last week we shot a gorgeous room in the Hunter Valley. It took weeks of planning and hours of driving all over Sydney picking up and dropping off props but it all came together smoothly and we enjoyed a two day trip to style the shoot. It was a team effort with photographer Lisa and stylist Marj even climbing scaffolding to get the perfect shot! That’s dedication!
Pretty much everything you see here will be available for sale on The Home in a fortnight so stay tuned!
My Friday night was spent switching over the old site to the new design (I know how to party on a Friday…) with the help of my lovely web designer and developer Mel from Red Dog Creations – she’s very patient and a dream to work with (sorry for all the last minute changes Mel!)
What do you think of the new look?
Cushion – Lamp
Me thinks the cockatoo would fit in nicely on my desk….
Some of you may already be aware that I work part-time for The Home (www.thehome.com.au) as a buyer selecting homewares, rugs, cushions, décor and furniture for the site. I also work on some of the shoots we feature in the online magazine with our lifestyle stylist Marj. We shot this gorgeous nursery last week, it was a real effort working with the peg board and hanging art from it but it’s turned out beautifully!
I’m working on a few nursery projects at the moment and used this shoot as inspiration!
What do you think?
What’s not to love about a pom pom trim?! Seriously.
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 Feast Watson asked me to be part of? Well here he is in all his glory after a lovely limewash finish and some love from Ada & Darcy (Thanks Kellie!). I had some help from my lovely upholsterer Peter from SewNeat 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!
Oh. Em. Gee. Cuteness to the max!
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.
