Studio Styling

Hard to believe that I have almost been at my new job for 3 months now! It has gone by so quickly. To celebrate my (almost) 3 months I thought I would share some styling shots from shoot we did not that long after I had started. I love the combination of the industrial feeling wall murals with our vintage props. Click on the top picture to see the rest of the photos from the shoot.

Vintage Wooden Ironing Board/Coral/Ceramic "Madeira" Name Plate/Dusty Patina Mural

Antique Keys/Vintage Ladder/Altimeter Mural 

Vintage Lunch Box/Vintage Photoframe/Vintage Chair/Expressions Collection Mural

Bold Blue

Working in a wallpaper shop I get to meet lots of different people with lots of different ideas about what kind of space they want to create in their homes. As soon as they mention 'blue' I get a little nervous - not that I don't like the colour (navy blue being an all time favourite)  I just find it intimidating. Will it be too cold? Will it be too severe? Will it be..well, too blue? So in an effort to be more accepting of this very popular hue I have been immersing myself in some seriously beautiful and blue styling!

Perfect Bedside Manner

To update my bedroom look I usually change the linen and cushions - it's a quick fix that can change the feel of a room in minutes! However I am loving the recent trend towards feature bedheads and unique bedside units. Sometimes less is more and that is certainly the case for these paired back bedsides that are popular at the moment. They are practical yet small enough to avoid unnecessary clutter and work perfectly with feature lighting!

Chalk Board Paint Potential

I stumbled across this styling from Anthropologie and had to share! I love the look of chalk board paint on the wall it's got a beautiful softness to it and the fact that you can actually draw/write on it is an added bonus.  The best thing is that you can use it in any room you like!

Cockatoo Crush

So kitch and so cool - Cockatoos! These charismatic characters are so iconically Australian - I just can resist them! My top 3 favourite cockatoo homewares are Bonnie and Neil's screen printed Black Cockatoo cushion (I own one of these!) secondly their printed wooden boxes featuring Australian flora and fauna and my third favourite - Melbourne based designer Carla Fletcher cushions! Cha

Pastel Pop

Pastel Love - I'm really enjoying the soft candy coloured hues that are popping up at the moment. Mint/Pink/Lilac are my pick of the bunch!

Patterns Plus Pattern is Perfect!

Really enjoying the pattern on pattern trend that is popping up both in interiors and fashion right now. It's refreshing to just have a bit of fun and throw everything together - you can always pair  back your patterns for a more sleek stylised look when you have had enough. 


Ink and Indigo

Don't know about you but I am seriously drawn to these tones at the moment - not sure if it's the change in seasons but can't get enough ink/ indigo/navy! Such a great palette for textiles and also loving interiors painted in this colouring.

Thailand Travels

We were lucky enough to get a cheeky little over seas holiday in just before starting back at work. Our destination was Thailand - colourful, sometimes chaotic and always cheerful. 3 nights in Bangkok followed by 6 nights on the beautiful island of Ko Lanta. There is nothing quite like a holiday to get feeling inspired!

Jungle Fever

With the Summer heat comes the need for bright, vibrant colours and lush textures. Definitely coming down with a case of jungle fever right now - would dearly love a room full of Martinique Banana Leaf wallpaper and a Tropical Bird wallpaper mural by Pablo Piatti. One can only dream!




Pineapple Crush

The super fun Pineapple seems to be a bit of a recurring theme at the moment! Everywhere I look there they are - gracing shop windows, adorning people's pants and hanging from their ears  (Nicka Pineapple Earrings). Even trendsetter Megan Morton is getting on board  the tropical fruit train with a pinata class dedicated entirely to the fruit de jour. Can't wait to get my hands on my own piece of pineapple goodness!

Garage Sale of Dreams

Yesterday morning we were up and about early (the forcast was for 37 degrees which is really hot for Melbourne) to make the most of the day and to try and avoid the heat. We started off by heading out to Brunswick to stock up on beeswax from there it was a quick stop in at Brunswick East Project for a coffee, after which we made our way back to check out some garage sale signs we had seen earlier. 

10 minutes later we arrived at the best garage sale I have ever seen - the kind you dream about (maybe that's just me?). Generally speaking I am an op shop/market kind of girl but this garage sale has reminded me how amazing they can be. While I couldn't buy anything (the whole moving interstate thing) I enjoyed snapping a few pics to inspire you to get out to some garage sales x

Spots, Dots and Polka Dots

Ever so slightly obsessed with spots and dots at the moment, loving the little pops of colour for my macrame hangers - what do you think?

Feeling like doing something fun this Christmas - seeing as we don't really have a 'White Christmas' it seems more appropriate to do something bright and fresh.
