Mood Board Monday – Elegant Entryway

Styling

Welcome to this weeks Mood Board Monday, Elegant Entryway! I decided to do things a little differently this week, and boy has it been fun! Rather than you guys choosing the space and me creating it to my style, I wanted you guys to take the lead on this one! Thank you to everyone who responded to my stories today and sent through a piece of furniture, a rug, an artwork or a gorgeous decor piece. You guys have amaaaaaazing taste! (Let’s be real, I’m not even surprised!)

SO – the piece i chose to work with was one of the first that came through and it COMPLETELY knocked my socks off! It was beautiful, elegant and so versatile. The gorgeous Insta Pal (you know I HATE the term followers!) who sent this trough wanted to see it styled in an entry way, and boy would this space look SENTATIONAL brought to life. The piece she sent through was a gorgeous Fenton & Fenton blush bone inlay console table. I’ve popped it below so you can see what I was given to work with. Isn’t she a beauty?!

This whole Mood Board Design took me just under an hour, that console gave me so much inspiration! You know that I am a massive fan of the texture and character that timber moulding gives, so it was a no brainer that that entryway included the elegance that it provides.

You know I am a MASSIVE fan of beaded chandeliers, so this gorgeous Elok chandelier was my first choice. I love the curved lines in this lighting fixture that compliment the arches in the beautiful mirror that rests on the console. As it would be located in the entryway, this console needed a beautiful little trinket tray to catch your keys and sunglasses when you walk through the door. And you know that I can’t go past a marble tray, especially one adorned with that brass trim….(drool factor!)

Just because something is beautiful doesn’t mean it can’t be practical as well, so this chic little blush Black mango chair and basket from Ollie Ella are in the entryway for you to be able to sit down, take your shoes off and pop them into the basket out of the way. what a gorgeous rug to land your feet on, while also being ridiculously practical. Did you know Jute rugs are one of the best wearing rugs, while also being environmentally friendly? Win…and win!

And hey….what’s a solo chair without a gorgeous print sitting above it? And this one from The Paper Collective has been on my list of perfect prints to use FOR EVER and it was worth the wait, it just ties everything altogether here. So here she is, and all of her elegant glory. What do you think?

Room Reveal – Laundry

Building, Decor, Home, Lifestyle, Styling

It’s officially here! Our very first room reveal. And I have to admit – it is one of my favourite rooms of the whole house (disclaimer: you are going to hear me say that A LOT in the coming weeks!). This room is a space that i designed to be 100% functional. Room for storage, the appliances we wanted and for it to also look pretty (not necessarily in that order).

Functionally, I wanted lots of bench space for folding, plenty of overhead cupboards for storage, a hanging rail for drying, a pull out laundry hamper to hide away the dirty clothes and, most importantly, a wine fridge for celebrating when all the work is DONE!

Being a laundry didn’t mean that it needed to be bland, boring and have no thought go into how it was going to be used. I changed the position of the sink at least 8 times throughout the design process. Ultimately this design works the best for us, for how we use the laundry, but also for how it connects to the rooms around it. The laundry is one of our first points when we enter the house, so it needed to be calming and welcoming. It needed to be an extension of the rest of our home, so neutral colours with a splash of brass (HELLO ABI Interiors brass fixtures!) and plenty of natural light was essential for the flow of our home. It is also connects to the outdoors via a full pane glass door, so it needed to be planned in a way that we could glide through easily (primarily to slide on through and grab a drink from the wine fridge!).

I did a lot of research into the products that I wanted to use in here. I tossed up between engineered stone and Laminex bench tops and in the end decided to go for the Laminex. The laundry is a space that we use daily for so many different functions, so I wanted to be sure that the products I used there would be able to withstand this. e.g. washing out paintbrushes with turps etc. For me personally, I would have a difficult time accepting damaging stone, so for this reason, Laminex was the winner. We went with a design that complimented the rest of the stone throughout the house and chose the Carrara Marble in a gloss finish (you can find all the products linked below).

Now for the pretty touches! The entire aesthetic behind the laundry was based around brass fixtures, so beautiful ABI Interiors were of course my first choice. I had seen them in my favourite magazines and knew that they would make a statement in our laundry. I also featured the same fixtures throughout the rest of our home, which gives a gentle and continual flow from the laundry to the rest of the home. It was important to me that all the fixtures had the same brass finish, so even the tile insert (drain/waste) in the floor had to be brass.

I am a firm believer in the finer details being spot on, so this was something that was non-negotiable. The fab part about selecting all of our fixtures from ABI Interiors is that the finish and colour of the brass completely matches. You would think that brass would be the same universal colour, right? WRONG! There is a huge variety in brass finishes (some are more gold, some much more orange) and then there is polished brass, antique brass, satin brass, distressed antique brass….the list goes on. Trust me when I tell you how valuable it is to find one company who are as versatile in providing such a huge range of products to fit out all the areas of your home like ABI Interiors does!

So here it is, our very first room reveal! I hope it was everything you expected and more. I can’t wait to bring you more spaces within our home!

Mood Board Monday – Classic Office

Styling

Welcome to this weeks Mood Board Monday, Home Office edition! And in all honesty, this mood board could not come at a better time. In speaking with you through my Insta DM’s, due to the current gloabal situation (let’s not mention the ‘C’ word….I am sure you are sick of hearing it by now!), so many of you are now working from home, and have discovered that your home office needs a little freshen up! So I am here to help. Fingers crossed you are as obsessed with pink as I am and this will tickle all your fancies. Let’s get to work!

Coming in a close second on the weekly Insta Stories polls, the gorgeous space I have designed this week is a classic home office. For all the pink lovers out there (ok, that HAS to be you, otherwise what are you doing here?!).

Natty and Polly are my absolute go to at the moment for pretty wallpaper. They seem to have every shade of every colour of every texture and pattern available. So this week we are going with a gorgeous pink plaid wallpaper in the fabulous shade of Rosa. There is something so old school, homely, yet also structured about this particular design. The perfect choice for the classic home office.

THIS CHAIR! I can’t go any further without mentioning this chair. Isn’t it everything? So luxe and so pretty, it was made for this space! Good news, it is a beautiful Pottery Barn piece (one of my faaaaaavourite chain stores for home furniture and decor)…..bad news…it is only available in the US. Fingers crossed they get their act together and start launching pieces like this in Australia soon!

Bringing some french provincial (when don’t we love that style?!) to this classic office space is the gorgeous desk from Interiors Online. The style and the colour of the oak is just to die for. It’s a winning combination to draw in the timber from the Interiors Online pendants.

As you know, finding art has always been the challenging part of interior decorating for me. But as soon as I knew I was doing this space, I knew exactly the artist that I wanted to include here. Georgianna Lane is the most stylish and creative photographer and captures classic beauty in everything she sees. Architecture, florals, decor, life and cities around the world. Georgianna has just released the third book in her collection, ‘London in Bloom’. It is an absolute treat for the eyes…and honestly, flicking through the gorgeous pages of her books makes my heart skip a beat and my mind start mentally packing my suitcase to jet set off to the glorious places she photographs.

Last but not least in my list of special mentions, is the stunning Linden Lamp, designed by Kelly Wearstler and stocked in the swoon-worthy Montauk Lighting Co. I love the simplicity of the white and the brass, but the bobble texture is a delight to the senses and definitely adds a sense of luxury and sophistication to this work space.

As usual, I’ve linked all the products below, happy shopping!

Mood Board Monday – Pretty In Pink

Styling

Our next installment of ‘Moodboard Monday’ is here and it’s an absolute beauty! It’s sweet, it’s dreamy and it’s one of my favourite spaces to design. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating this area of your home…so I bet you’re wondering…What are of the home have i designed for you this week?

You voted…..and here it is! A pretty little girls room!

When you voted for a girls room, I have no doubt that you expected it to be a little heavy on the pink (have we met?!) – so I hope I didn’t disappoint!

I’ve always had a massive crush on this stunning Ferm Living wallpaper, since I first laid eyes on it in Minty Magazine back in 2017 as advertisement for Pip and Sox (a gorgeous Australian boutique children’s store). It comes in the most beautiful soft tones and makes a statement without being too bold. It has always been on my list of ‘must use’ pieces, and I am delighted to be able to feature it in this weeks mood Board Monday.

Without a doubt, this room needed an Elok chandelier! They remind me so much of beautiful strings of pearls, and the fact that they can be customised to any colour is so perfect. This one listed below is their Dusty Pink, and it is just perfect for this space!

I’m always o the hunt for pretty art pieces, and if I am honest, I always find this the hardest part. But as soon as I laid my eyes on this gorgeous Christine Hoel Alpaca, i knew it was perfect for this space! Alpaca’s are so on trend at the moment, but this one is so sweet and the colours within it allow for it to be styled in so many different ways, making it a really versatile investment!

I blieve all rooms need to bring their magic, and a Numero 74 canopy will always seal the deal. not only are they aesthetically pleasing, the also are a great way for framing a space, and in this case, framing a little reading nook for little girls who are getting really interested in books and telling stories. Paired with the gorgeous pink velvet lounger, it creates a wonderful little moment in time for a little girls room.

This bed is pure perfection! Pink, velvet and those little pops of brass for the feet – it ties this space together beautifully….and imagine popping your feet out of the bed onto this gorgeous soft Ollie Ella rug. Now THAT’s one way to start your morning!

My little girls is often invading my desk to draw and colour and create things, so I felt the need to create a little desk area n their beautiful room…and that delicious pink velvet ottoman with a touch of brass – my idea of heaven!
