Easter Tablescape

Happy Easter!

Loving the vintage, seaside feel of this tablescape.

I am look forward to a day of good food, laughter, Easter egg hunts
and the perfect excuse for not spending a day up the ladder painting the new house!

I hope everyone has a lovely day indulging in chocolate
and sharing a perfect day with friends and family.

Easter Magic



With Easter Sunday only a day away
I am getting excited about Easter preparations.
I have a busy day ahead with cooking, cleaning and setting the table.
I love the coastal feel of this photo shoot in the blues and aquas.
I always try and give our Easter decorations a coastal twist.

Pretty Easter Inspiration


This Easter promises to be a busy one.

Not only is it school holidays and Easter celebrations but we are busily renovating our new house, our current house is still on the market and is being auctioned in two weeks, the work is flowing through steadily as I try and decorate my own house as well as my clients!

Somewhere in between I need to squeeze in a family Easter lunch with my usual over-the-top Easter tablescape otherwise I am sure to have a few disappointed guests!
I hope you all have lovely (more relaxing) plans.

I am loving this pretty Easter inspiration to get me motivated!

Stripe Me Lucky

Trend Report - Navy and White Stripes
When it comes to fashion nothing screams 'seaside' more than stripes.
Navy blue and white is a well loved favourite colour combo
but you can always mix it up a bit with
 black, red, cobalt or pale blue ~
if you are looking for a fresher take on nautical chic!

Chocolate & White - Get The Look

Re-create this look

choc Details


Nobody needs to convince me that chocolate is a good thing!!!
Not only is it a delicious indulgence to eat 
but it's also rich and decadent in interior design schemes.
For more of a coastal feel I like mixing it back with white
to keep it fresh and crisp.
Great for accessories and accent timber pieces -
the result is always warm, inviting and cosy.

Dream Desitination - Mykonos



Missoni Purple & Aqua

I love the upbeat vibe and the beautiful scenery you find in Mykonos.
Next time round I might stay away from the backpackers, nightclubs and busy beaches
and find somewhere more stylish, relaxed and sophisticated to chill out.
I think the Grace Hotel would do me very nicely!
It looks like the perfect place to ~
sleep in
enjoy breakfast on the balcony
hang out at the pool
relax with a drink at the bar and
  watch the sunsets from the terrace.

Anna Spiro's Coastal Retreat

Loving Peacock chairs & Ikat prints right now!


Take a peak at interior designer Anna Spiro's eclectic holiday house on Queensland's Stradbroke Island. Known for her creative and bold mix of colour, prints and pattern, Anna has built herself quite a reputation around the globe. Far more out there then I would ever dare to design (I am strictly coordinated kind of designer) it's people like Anna that encourages me to experiment and push my boundaries a little!
