A little while ago I shared an interview with Lauren from Patchy Rugs, gorgeous Turkish remastered kilims. Lauren’s just let me know that they are about to place another order and if anyone wants to put in a special request for a colour, size and style – now is a good time! So if you’d like one of these seriously lovely rugs in your home shoot Lauren an email with your specifications!
How cute are these candles from Pollen Arts?! I’m a sucker for candles and when they’re beeswax there’s no stopping me..

Citrusy colours all combined in an amazing bouquet of sorts! Wouldn’t this make an awesome colour scheme for a room!
Goodbye Autumn. Hello Winter. After visiting a client last week I drove down Burns Road, Wahroonga – one of my favourite streets on Sydney’s North Shore & looked up at the naked trees that were full of Autumn colour a few weeks ago..
It seems that Sydney has really decided to embrace Winter this week. It’s chillier during the days and time for woolly blankets at night, time to bring out the wooly blankets and stock up on some tea!
Last week Adairs sent me a nice box of wintery goodies. In the box was a lovely taupe Mercer + Reid fine Australian wool blanket I had only just put an old woollen blanket on my bed two nights before so I swapped it out for this new one and noticed that night that I didn’t wake up chilly at all so thumbs up for this one! I also received the World’s Softest Cotton Sheets and they are not wrong, so soft! They are 500 thread count but the nicest thing about these sheets is they have this sheen that makes them look as soft as they feel.
I was in an Adairs store last week with a client looking for new bedding for her house and while we were waiting at the counter I spotted Mercer + Reid’s ‘Aroma Wash’ Laundry Detergent and my client ended up buying two bottles to wash her new sheets with. I didn’t buy any at the time but luckily there was a bottle of the laundry detergent in the box so I used it when I washed the sheets and it made them smell amazing, it means you can do away with washing powder and fabric softener and just use a cap full of this stuff. Genius.
Right now Adairs are having their massive mid year sale so if you need to stock up on bedding, towels, flannelette sheets or quilts, now is the time to do it! Quilts and doonas are often quite pricey so if you do need something now’s the time to buy!
Once again Loni has outdone herself with a FABULOUS new issue of Adore Home Magazine.. Look carefully and you’ll see an ad Loni created for Nest. Pretty isn’t it?! I’m wishing I was in Brisbane so I could visit Oliveaux & Rylo Interiors they look like the kind of place I’d like to live in! What’s your favourite bit from this issue?
This NYC apartment belongs to actress Molly Sims and I’m so jealous it’s not mine.
That breakfast nook is beyond amazing, grey tones and a punch of pink. Delicious!
Molly’s interior designer is the amazingly talented Kishani Perera – her portfolio is full to bursting, you must check it out!
No. 1: Good Bones, Great Pieces Book. I read this in one sitting over the weekend, anyone who has an interest in furniture should read this book. It lists the 7 pieces of furniture you need to carry you through your life.
No. 2: La Pazatively Hot OPI Nail Polish. I never have unpainted nails, anyone who follows me on Instagram will know this. Jen from Interiors Addict and I get manicures every few weeks together and we spend aaaaagggeees deciding on the ‘right’ hot pink…. Men don’t understand but there ARE differences!!
No 3. I think T2 has been doing teabags for a few months now but I’ve only recently discovered them and the Chai tea is delicious!

Here’s what I’ve been up to in the last week or so in pictures!
