Simple Bathroom Makeover

When you live in rented accommodation there is a limit to what you can do with some of your spaces. Well, for me there is anyway.  I live in an old home and the bathrooms (and kitchen) were probably last updated in the 1980's.  We have other quirks with living in an old home (that [...]

The Edit: Bedroom Inspiration

I've decided that it's high time I made some effort in the bedroom (ahem...obviously I'm referring to the decor!) Seriously though, I don't think I've ever really made an effort to make the master bedroom a truly pulled together space - not since the first home that we bought.  From that first proper home we [...]

The Image Search Tool You Need

OK, I realise I've been away from the blog for a while and now I am back and writing about a completely different topic than you are used to seeing here.  But stick with me...because today I am tackling an issue that I feel quite strongly about - namely, crediting the source of an image [...]

Make An Entrance

I am often intrigued about what influences style.  Where does our sense of style come from? And why is it that we are almost always influenced by the country that we grew up in?  I was aware of this influence when it came to figuring out the entrance to our home.  There were a couple [...]

House and Home

I was at dinner with friends recently when someone asked me..."do you have to just like walk around your house and take photos everyday?"  I didn't really know what to say because ummm, yeah!  That is seriously what I have to do everyday to feed my instagram account which has become a large part of [...]

Art Prints from Hunting for George

I used to think I had enough art.  In the last house we actually had a couple of pieces sitting wrapped in boxes that we simply didn't have space for (mind you, I did come from living in a glass box - but even so...) but since we moved I am realising you can never have [...]

My Top 5 Benches and Daybeds

I bought this Moller bench from Great Dane Furniture a few years ago.  I had been eyeing this classic bench for a while because we had a stairway landing that I knew it would be perfect for.  So on a trip to Melbourne I bought it and then carefully wrapped it in bubble wrap on my parents [...]

My favourite shops for Moroccan rugs

I have become quite fixated recently with Moroccan rugs - and specifically rugs from the Boujad tribe.  I travelled to Morocco many years ago and it still remains one of my favourite destinations.  While we were there we hired a car and drove from Marrakesh into the Atlas Mountains, staying along the way at a [...]

A new year, a new home

A new year and a new home to make our own.  For those of you that follow me over on Instagram this move has been brewing for a number of months (and you're probably quite sick of hearing me talk about it) and for those of you that don't - well, we've moved. The [...]
