Console Styling with The Bowery Company

25/05/2019

Something we’re asked all too often by clients is “how do I style a sideboard?” It’s actually a great question, and as stylists we sometimes forget that it doesn’t come naturally to everyone – yet it so important to have these surface spaces looking ‘pulled together’ in you home. With this in mind, we thought it might be helpful to share some console or sideboard styling ideas as a regular feature. So you can look forward to a…

Ikea favourite finds | April 2019

19/04/2019

We are big fans of IKEA around here. It’s not for every room in the house, but it certainly has its place – particularly in this region’s transient society, Every now and again, they really hit a home run, particularly in recent years as they’ve taken on more design collaboration projects, and of late they’ve been knocking it out of the park.

  • Yesterday I assisted at a @fronteriors installation at the beautiful home of @shoestova - she opted for our brand new slatted doors in grey with matte black handles and the combination is ace! We love seeing customers play with the options to achieve their individual vision.

  • I can't quite explain how happy I was to open the front door and see our new flooring all finished when I got home this morning. Home sweet home just got sweeter. When I left last week, @floorworldllc were still working on the installation and they've done such a great job on the finishing touches. Feeling all the good feel this Monday morning. Now to attend to that to do list!

  • I'm on a quick trip to Portugal which turned into a very spontaneous girls catch-up when my cousin from Dubai joined me and a friend of ours flew in from England to meet us. We found such a cool little villa on @airbnb that overlooks the rice fields in Carvarhal, Portugal.  Enjoying the end-of-summer beautiful weather. Happy Friday! X
