I hope you are having a wonderful Halloween kind of day!  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, all the dressing up and running around town being someone wild and crazy.  So fun!
What are you up to today?  Will you be dressing up and trick or treating?  Will you be hosting a little party?

Rustic, romantic beach home

On this foggy, cold autumn morning I'm dreaming of somewhere warm and far and away. Possibly because I'm going somewhere hot hot hot later on in the week for a wedding. And I LOVE weddings! So how perfect to come across this beautiful, rustic, romantic beach home in Sydney, Australia from Home Life. What do you say? Yes please!

I love that everything in the home has been brought back from all corners of the globe. The pieces work together beautifully against the white background. Such a lovely home!

I know someone in particular who is going to love this post...g'day Cas in Sydney! Big hug to you cheeky-bo! xxx

For fun...

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday just before Halloween!  I have been to the flea market and cannot wait to share all of the fun pieces that I picked up with you!

Dark and mysterious

Are you ready for Halloween?  I love the dark mysterious feeling of this space..  I can just see it full of people lounging and chatting over drinks.

Master Bath Updates

Our Master Bath updates are well under way!  I could not be more excited to get this project completed.  I chose all of the pieces very slowly, which is not normal for me- I was having a tough time making choices.  For the shower we are using Walker Zanger Studio Moderne  Petit Imperial in Jute as the inset with the small matching field tile and trim, I LOVE it!  It looks so amazing!  The sink will be a free standing piece with a limestone top, the kraus vessel sinks, Kholer wall mounted faucets and custom mirrors and lighting. 

This is what the bathroom looked like last week (below).  Which was making me crazy.  Since then we have pulled all the tile as well as the mirror, sinks and cabinets, they were so bad.  I will be giving you an update next week on our progress, which I am excited to say does not included exposed insulation!


Oh my darling Clementine

I love this soft, calm nursery, brightened up with a shock of colour using wonderful prints by Darling Clementine....

Picture: The bedroom was created by the clever blogger at Supersnella. Buy these lovely retro style prints at Darling Clementine

So guys, POETS (Push-of-early-tomorrow's-saturday) day don't forget!

Colour pop for your poppits

Happy Friday campers! We're nearly there! Woo hoo! In case you need some inspiration for the weekend - how about decorating your little angels room with brightly coloured furniture, wall paper / wall stickers and prints. I'm taking my inspiration from these rooms....

Picture: Family Living. Get the Sundvik table from IKEA and choose a lovely fabric to cover. I painted the surface of my little girls' table with black board paint so they can draw on it until their hearts content! IKEA also sell a shelf like this. Find similar wall stickers like the tree on the door at Inke.

Picture: Family Living. All little ones love their dolls to sleep in style - like in this Juno dolls cot which you can buy at House of Hedda , I love how it matches the bed! Try colourful fabric for your angels wall from IKEA and Inke for wall stickers.

Picture: IKEA Family Live. IKEA sells children's kitchen units, this play food and tea set. If only our angels could actually make us supper too?!

Terrariums- Why Not?

I saw a couple of interesting terrariums at High Point Market that I just loved.  You might remember that although I love plants & flowers, I have a black thumb when it comes to indoor plants.  (Although there is 1 plant in my house that has been alive for a year now!)  I've always liked terrariums and have never given them a shot.  After seeing some "easy" (according to their owners) beauties at Market, I think I'll try them out. 

{Europe 2 You's terrarium filled with a gorgeous oregano that looks like flower blossoms- who knew??)

Here's a more modern version filled with succulents & tropical plants:

{At Bevara Design House}

I love this one:

...And I can actually do moss.  Sort of.

This one is whoah:

...And this little ferny fern I could maybe handle:

My window boxes are half dead ( I have plans to add in some mums to replace the ferns I killed) and maybe when I've finished with that I'll get some terrariums in the plant hospice (my house).

Have a great one!!

currently obsessed with {simple styling}

Some days you need the clean lines of something simple to make everything fall into place.  I am totally in love with these paintings by Amaryllis Truth and this table is screaming for placement in a clients home!  I have to use them both somewhere soon or I will have to buy them for myself!


Oh so stunning white, grey and neutral home

Hello there! I think this home of designer Natasja Molenaar featured on 79 ideas is breathtaking! I love the tones, I love the raw wood furniture and I love the light. What do you love about this home?

I wish I knew where the beautiful table was from, or perhaps it was handmade, any ideas? You can buy Eames lounge chairs from Vitra.  

Beautiful, soft looking blanket. I'm not sure where this is one but Himla or The Conran Shop sell lovely winter warmers.

Buy glass storage jars like these from IKEA

I love the shelving unit at the end of the bed but sadly no clue where it's from.

Fired Earth sells beautiful 'bowl' sinks a little like these
