Caramel Inspiration




This Autumn caramel and tan will take the spotlight

As we head into Autumn it is time to transform your home and give it a seasonal update. Capture the spirit of the season by adding spice and warmth to your decor palette. This year we are seeing a lot of tan and caramel toned colours, especially in leather. This looks fabulous on slimline retro Danish style sofas, like those featured above. Cosy up your home with some knitted throws, wool cushions and warm blankets. You'll find that it's the small touches that go a long way when decorating your home for the autumn season.

Modern Pink Interiors

Make me Blush: Pastel Pink on Trend

It’s a colour combo the fashion world have found impossible to resist this season – pastel pink paired with monochrome black and white.  Its soft and elegant, yet unexpectedly mature.  It’s not a colour many get drawn to for the home, but this season it’s been done so beautifully, it’s impossible to ignore.

My tips for making pink work in your home this season:

 - Don’t over do it – a dash of pink goes a long way. Think about accessorising with the colour – a cashmere throw, a cushion selection, or single artwork.  Choose one or two things as an accent, rather than a full look.

- Keep it contemporary.  Pair back pink this season with minimalist design detail.  If you add too much flair or frill the colour will go from chic to meek very quickly.

- Make it seasonal – this isn’t a trend that will last forever.  Don’t commit to a pink piece that you want long term – like a sofa or even a rug.  I’d think about re-upholstering an occasional chair, or a pink linen doona cover for your bed.  Unless you really love pink – in which case commit away!

Hope you enjoy my inspiration below as much as I do!

this homemade favourite is perfect for a chilly night.

Tomato soup is a tasty treat for an easy Sunday night supper.
Serve it up with crusty sourdough bread and cracked black pepper
and it's bound to be a winner with all the family!

A Peaceful Haven


My bedroom is my haven!

A bedroom should be a peaceful, tranquil space 
that allows you to relax and unwind.

The colour palette should be serene and calming,
your bed should be comfortable
with good quality linen that's soft on the skin.
The room should be tidy and clutter free
to help clear your mind and de-stress.
You should have heating and cooling
so that you can maintain a comfortable temperature all year round.
Every time I go to bed at night ~
I feel cosy, relaxed and spoilt to have this lovely room.
