A festive collaboration of Christmas styling

27/11/2015

If you’ve been a regular around here for some time, you may recall the bloggers collaboration project I was involved in around this time last year. Blogging can be a bit of a solitary mission at times so I jump at the chance to work with like-minded creatives. Joining forces with my dear, and seriously talented friend, Linda at Live Loud Girl for…

Go green: Beautiful Botanical Arrangements

17/11/2015

I’ve always loved having fresh flowers in my home. It can be an expensive indulgence but it’s one that I ‘allow’ myself as often as I can. I do however like to keep it simple with lots of green – I’ll usually opt for lilies, hydrangeas or roses, but lately, I’m paring things down even further, and quite coincidentally, saving some money in the process.

Micro trend: Round mirrors

31/08/2015

Have you spotted the little upward trend of using round mirrors – particularly the suspended variety, and often with leather straps? Don’t you love it? I’m already scheming about where I can install one of these retro beauties…. and I’ve spotted something similar on sale at The Bowery Co. this week! Have a good one. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 

A Swedish country home

23/07/2015

Just thought I’d share a look at this home I’ve been obsessing over lately. If you recognise the kitchen in this exquisite country house, it’s because it was a main source of inspiration in a recent post about ideas for my new kitchen project. It all started, as it often does, with a visit to Pinterest. One minute I’m drooling over images of this kitchen and…

Nicky McLean’s photography studio refresh

11/06/2015

Nicky McLean is a talented and sought after Dubai-based photographer who specialises in maternity and newborn photography. She has an amazing talent for capturing those fleeting moments when your tiny new bundle looks as though it could still be in the womb. Sadly, I only came to know of Nicky’s work long after my babies were born and I therefore…

Jamie Kay

31/05/2015

I am sure you’ll agree that some things don’t need much in the way of an introduction or explanation – beauty can speak for itself. Like these blankets and throws in cottons and lambswool by NZ-based online retailer, Jamie Kay. The store bears the name of it’s owner, homeware designer and mum-preneur , Jamie. Aren’t they lovely? Whilst I am yet to get my hands…

For the love of baskets

25/05/2015

image source My husband loves to tell anyone who’ll listen that I’m a basket case. And frankly, he’s probably right. I’m a bit of a hot mess on any given day lately. What with running around the kids, trying to grow my little decorating empire 😉 , keeping the family fed and watered and generally chasing my tail in 40+ degree heat….
