After wasting an extrodinary amount of time on Pinterest, I’ve decided I’d like to design and decorate a wine bar so any clients out there looking to start a wine bar let me know, I’m your girl! 😉
Trade Fairs always mean a big day out with sore feet guaranteed, but never disappoints. The suppliers always put in such a great effort with their stands and the products are equally as fabulous. These were my favourite pics from the fair. Unfortunately some suppliers wouldn’t let me photograph their products so I couldn’t share all the treasures I found yesterday. 🙁
Did anyone else attend? What were your favourite stands?
I’m a little bit excited to announce that I am one of 9 designers to be asked to participate in the .
I have to select a piece of furniture in need of some love and spruce it up! It will then be auctioned off in May with all proceeds going to charity.
I love a good DIY project or ten (anyone following me on will see I have a board dedicated to !) so I’m really excited to re-vamp this chair below. I’m thinking glossy pink paint and some flamingo fabric…. However, I haven’t started on it yet so all suggestions welcome!!!
I’m tying up loose ends, wrapping presents, packing for my trip away and setting my out of office reply (yay!). On Sunday I’m getting in the car with my family and we are driving to Noosa (from Sydney, yes, it’s going to be so joyful with five of us in the car for two days!). We’ll spend Christmas with my extended family then stop in Byron for a week on the way home and I cannot wait. I won’t have much access to emails during that time which is a little bit scary but also a little bit nice because I’m really looking forward to sitting on the beach and relaxing.
I hope you all have very happy, relaxing holidays with family and friends. I’ll be back on board Jan 7th. I’m looking forward to returning refreshed and ready for a MASSIVE year. It’s going to be a good one, I can tell already 🙂
Thank you for all your comments, emails, tweets, messages etc. throughout the year, they are all read and appreciated very much!
I wouldn’t mind sitting down to either of these tablescapes this Christmas!
Oh my gosh, amazing! I wish I had more time this year, I would definitely have tried my hand at this gorgeous wreath. Click over to blog for the DIY instructions.
Loving these bright beach towels from new online store ! Cute name too!
Enjoy free shipping until Christmas….
I’m another year older and another year wiser (maybe….)
A little while ago I stumbled across this gorgeous little business called and fell in love with their cute prints so thought I’d ask Amy & Casey more about how and why they started the business. The girls were kind enough to offer a free print to Nest blog readers. To enter the competition just leave a comment below stating which your favourite print is and like their . Winner will be drawn Friday 14th Dec.
What inspired you to start Minty Prints?
Casey: I’ve got two favourites! Everything Happens for a Reason is the thinking I try to follow in life, so to have that on display on my living room wall is a great way to be reminded every day…and Round and Round the Garden for sentimental reasons as it was the first nursery rhyme that my daughter learnt the little hand actions to.
I’m back from a design filled weekend away in Melbourne. Last time I visited I was there for only 48 hours to visit the trade fairs and didn’t even get time to shop! This time I flew down on Friday afternoon and shopped, ate, drank and talked design all weekend long with fellow interior designer Marj Silva of Decor Project (website coming soon). It was loads of fun, I met Lucy from at the . Lucy had done an awesome job, there was so much to look at and the house it was all set up in was absolutely awesome. Marj and I spent quite a while looking at everything in detail and had a great chat with Lucy’s mum who was helping out for the event, she was such a sweetheart!
We also visited Cool House and a market called the made entirely of shipping containers! Here’s a photo round up of the weekend…
I can’t wait to go back again soon.
Someone told me today about , a parody Google website. I googled myself and fits of laughter ensued! Have a read , it’s hilarious!!
