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.

Overseas Homewares, My Top 5 Online Shops

Now I am not sure if you’ve worked it out yet, buy I am a complete and utter shopping nut. None more so then when it is for homewares.

The Citizenry

I love some of the products available here in Australia, but find the same products find their way into all shops, meaning finding something a little bit different can be a challenge. That is why I turn a lot to Etsy.

But what about overseas stores?

We have been lucky in the last few years to have had some international homewares stores open their doors here, including West Elm, H&M and Zara Home. But while we wait for more to come, thank god for the internet!!!!

Have you ever had that feeling when you have bought something for your home, that didn’t come with an ‘Um and Ar” moment beforehand, but did come with a gut feeling that it was just the right thing to buy, regardless of the cost?

You know that time, when you have got it home and you just can’t help but smile at it because it makes you happy to own it???

Sparkk – Unique Fabric Designs

Sparkk Fabrics

One of my favourite elements of interior design and styling is using fabrics, whether it be upholstery, soft furnishings or window dressings, fabrics can add a real point of interest in a space.

I have spent many a happy hour or two looking at fabrics and have a box full of samples in my office.

The range of products available is astounding, so many variations in colour, pattern and texture.  Fabrics can be really important element in a space. Textured fabrics can add interest in a neutral interior, breaking up a flat use of the same colour. A highly patterned or coloured fabric can make an armchair or sofa a star attraction. Using rich fabrics like silk and velvet can add a feeling of opulence.

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.

Study Organisation – The Before and After

Study Organisation - The Before and After

Just as one project draws to a close and so another one starts.

Our master bedroom makeover is nearly at an end and so my focus has now shifted to our study / guest room.

As mentioned in my previous post about sofa beds (click here to get up to speed) this space needs to be multi-functional, it needs to function as a study, a guest bedroom and a second sitting room.

Once thing it was lacking was storage space.
