Bowerbird

12 Oct

I LOVE coffee table books, especially ones about interiors and paper crafts.

I can’t wait to get my hands on this piece of gold! Sibella Court, bestselling author of Etcetera, The Stylist’s Guide to NYC and Nomad has just released her new visual feast of her collections – ‘Bowerbird’.

A bowerbird is native to Australia and gathers, collects and arranges pieces it finds beautiful within its nest. When you flip through the pages of this book, you will realise that it is the epitome of the word – Bowerbird.

Crazy.Beautiful.Life

3 Oct
You know when you’re lucky enough to stumble across those little home wares stores where you can just walk in and think ‘yes, this is just me all over!’
Not only do they just make you feel good or have products that make you tingle with excitement, but they also INSPIRE you to recreate the feeling upon entry in your own home.
I know a particular little store that never fails to provide this experience for me  – Crazy.Beautiful.Life in Richmond NSW.
Every time I’m on my way home from Sydney, I make sure to make a stop in there. The store is filled with all things quirky, handmade, rustic, modern and nature inspired.
The owner’s keen eye to pull off and harmonize all of these different concepts in one space is evident upon entry.
It’s a must to see!

‘Stuff’ to fill a void..

3 Oct

When you think about it, it’s all just ‘stuff’ isn’t it? Unless it has sentimental value, it’s just items that have been manufactured to please the eye and enhance our visual perception of ‘what makes us happy’ and fulfills us.

Don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t want a perfectly executed interior with statement pieces that pop and a lovely environment to walk into after a hard days work. It’s our haven, our safety, our place of relaxation and our ability to make these spaces so much more then just a ‘house’ is what really makes it feel like home.
It may sound a little contradictory that I -an interior decorator – am saying this,  but sometimes we get so caught up in this material world and forget to appreciate the little things, that In the big picture, are much more important than having the latest leather lounge or exotic throw rug.. It’s who we spend our time with, invite and share our houses with that create memories that stay with us.
So next time you think it’s impossible to perfect the look of your dream home on your budget or situation, just remember that these things take time. There’s no point just going and buying ‘stuff’ just to fill a void in your decorating frustrations! Be patient, make sure your pieces have a story or mean something to you, take progressional photos and in a few years from now, you can look back and see just how far you’ve come and you’ll appreciate your individual journey.
Here is a link to help you start with the very basics of getting your decorating schedule underway!
