Moroccan Influence

As living spaces shrink, I find myself drawn to small spaces more and more frequently. I love that a small space doesn’t necessarily mean you have to sacrifice style, and this apartment is living proof. Cassandra Karinsky, talented online Moroccan inspired shop owner, is lucky enough to split her time between the streets of Marrakesh, and this light-filled abode.There are plenty of quirky, one-off inspirational ideas that really suit a beach house. I am loving the painted stool bedside table and cane wall light, the clever detailing, the Moroccan accessories and the indoor plants.

Greek Getaway


I had dinner at my favourite Greek restaurant last night - it was a warm and balmy night and the place was buzzing. The Greek owner is loud, exuberant and welcoming and the crowd was suntanned and stylish. The restaurant overlooks the water and there's lots of locally caught seafood on the menu. It's is the perfect place to watch the sun gone down whilst sipping on a cocktail. The atmosphere reminded me of great holidays on the Greek Islands and it got me thinking, it's about time I headed back there for another holiday!.

Modernist Sydney Beach House

This modernist family home showcases these homeowners' passion
 for mid-century architecture and furniture.

This modernist timber and sandstone home belongs to interior stylist Karen Kelly Tarasin. The house, which is built in the style of modernist architect Harry Seidler, is located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The decor is a mix of old and new with modernist touches in every corner. In the dining area a Saarinen ‘Tulip’ table is paired with original Hans Wegner chairs and a pendant light from Danish design company Muuto. The white base (floors and walls) keeps it fresh, bringing it into the 21st century, whilst the timber furniture gives it warmth and personality.

This summer make it bright and tropical!

I am loving all these bright, festive colours that are popping up all over my radar.

I will admit I have jumped on the band wagon and 
I'm addicted to all things bright and tropical.
It's proving to be great inspiration for my summer parties.
