Affordable Art

Right now there is a huge trend towards colourful, modern abstract art
which I am really loving.
The bigger and bolder the better I say!
There's a great number of artists who are putting there artwork
out there at affordable prices ~
which is great news for those of us who are decorating on a budget.
If original pieces are out of your reach then look to pieces
that have been digitally reproduced and stretched onto canvas.
Here's a few of my favourite picks from Urban Road ~
they retail between $99 and $120.
These pieces would certainly brighten up a beach house.

Beach Blonde

White Out

White is the answer to what to wear on a hot summer's day.
It looks fresh, crisp and cool especially with a summer tan.
White cotton lace is especially pretty
as are kaftans in sheer linens.
Team with white accessories to complete the perfect summer look.

Happy Halloween

At the moment I am obsessing over white pumpkins.
If we were to celebrate Halloween in Australia
This is the sort of look I would be putting together ~
a rustic table setting with white pumpkins and a vintage pieces.
These stylists have all got it spot on.

Wishing all of my American blogging friends a

Happy Halloween

A Beach House In Merricks



Mint + Orange


This beach house in Merricks, In Victoria, is full of character ~ 
it reminds me of the old fashioned beach houses we used to stay in when I was a kid. They always seemed to have pastel coloured kitchens and bathrooms and cupboards with little curtains instead of doors. So this house brings back plenty of happy memories!

I love the way they haven't gone all slick and modern ~ using plenty of colour and bold patterns. It makes this beach house really stand out from the crowd.

I am a huge fan of photographer Brooke Holm. Her work is always crisp and clean - I have noticed her work popping up in all of my favourite interior mags lately. A couple of years ago I attended her photography workshop in Melbourne so I am using her handy hints and tips to do all my photography around my own house.

All White With A Touch of Copper






Copper Trend

This home styled by Kim Timmerman is almost entirely decorated in white.
 Copper accessories give this house a touch of color.
 I am ‘white lover’ so this house has lots of appeal ~
 clean and simple with great attention to detail.
 A look that could easily be achieved on a budget.  
Proving once again that stylish interiors do not have to cost the earth!Text
