My Pick of Interior Design Books – What’s on your bookshelf??

There’s is no doubt one of my big loves is interior design, but I do also love books.
I thank my parents for that, they have always been avid readers and always actively encouraged my sister and I to read too.

So it’s no surprise that I have a growing collection of interior design books at home.

Bar Cart Styling – Kitting it Out for Cocktail Hour.

A couple of weeks back, I posted about our visit to the distillery Archie Rose, read about it here.

It got me thinking about my bar at home. Now we were the lucky recipients of a Parker drinks trolley, all thanks to the brilliant Tony, a passionate mid century furniture restorer. We bought an amazing Parker dining table and chairs from him, see it in my post here, and he was kind enough to chuck in the drinks trolley for free.

Getting Summer Ready!! Outside Inspiration.

Whilst the Northern hemisphere is looking to rug up and get cozy for the on coming winter season, us lucky peeps in the south are getting ready for the summer. Whether that be burning the calories at the gym to get the beach body going or shopping for the ultimate summer wardrobe.

My mind turns to the all important outdoor space. Now our apartment is not blessed with a massive outdoor space, it is a good size compared to some in Sydney, we have a wicker two seater and armchairs and a modest number of pots. So it is cozy and functional. And on those hot summer evenings it can be the perfect spot to watch the sun go down (west facing) with a cold beverage or two!!

Out of Africa – Safari Fusion

Safari Fusion - African Made Homewares Online

blog-title
I do love finding things that are a little bit different. while scouring the internet for products I find that quite a lot of stores are stocking the same things and I mean same, not even just similar.

So imagine my delight at finding Safari Fusion. Not a bit of rose gold, copper  or marble to be seen. 😉 (not that I am not partial to some of these!!!)

A Colour Cure (Trends) by Dulux Australia – issuu

I do love visiting the local hardware store and checking out paint chips. I cannot deny that I am a colour fan whether that be in my wardrobe or interiors.

Check out Dulux’s colour trend forecast for 2017 below.

Being a colour fanatic I am drawn to the bolder colours of the Chroma palette.

What do you think??

One thing I did notice is that maybe they jumped the gun a little as there wasn’t a single sign of Pantone’s colour of the year to be seen!!!

Naughty or Nice??? My Christmas Wish List for Home

And here we are again, slap bang in the middle of that crazy holiday season that is Christmas. It just keeps on sneaking up sooner and sooner, but that may have more to do with some of the big stores putting out their Christmas decorations in September, yes you read right, September.

K-mart and Target I am pointing my finger at you!!!

Now I consider myself to have been a very good girl this year, there isn’t any conceivable reason why a visit from Santa isn’t on the cards.

A bedroom chair bargain

bed

So I know it’s been a while since my last update (click here to catch up), on my master bedroom revamp. Things moved along nicely and then we hit a wall (a freshly painted one LOL!!!!)
The main issue is the window dressings, but that’s a whole other episode. I’ll save that for later, I am not ready to talk about it yet.

On the positive side, we did snap up a bargain, albeit in the need of a little TLC, but what the heck!!!!
