    Everything you need to know about home fragrance

    When thinking about a home’s atmosphere, we immediately think about decor, the colour of the walls, the lighting, the ‘homely’ touches, and pretty much everything but fragrance. The smell is one of the most important senses, and your home’s scent greatly affects your mood, your productivity, and your comfort. So let’s talk about it!   Choosing a scent: Generally, fruity scents tend to give an air of cleanliness to your home. Some florals like frangipani give off a cool freshness, while sweet scents like vanilla and caramel can give the air a comforting feeling (be careful it doesn’t make you hungry though!).  If you’re looking to create an atmosphere of…

    How to Make Fresh Flowers Last Longer

    I love flowers, there is something about fresh-cut market flowers in my home that really brightens my day. I don’t know whether it is their fresh scent, their bright and cheerful colours, or the way they liven up a room; but they are a simple and effective way to add a nice touch to any room, not to mention the perfect gift for someone special or even yourself.

    At home with Courtney from @courtney_approved

    Recently I noticed a growing trend and love of purple making its appearance in interior design – in particular pastel lilac tones. When I think of purple tones and incorporating them seamlessly into your home, I think of the every so wonderful Courtney from @courtney_approved and her daughter Paisley’s room. I was lucky enough to work on a custom design for Paisley’s room, the gorgeous vintage-inspired girl with a flower wreath in her hair, the purple and navy tones ended up matching perfectly and the artwork looks like it was made for the space. Courtney has taken the time to discuss her decorating style and where she gets her inspiration…

    How to update your bedroom on a budget

    How many times have you thought about updating your bedroom but felt like you can’t afford it? The idea of spending thousands on furniture alone is enough for us to put the idea in the ‘too hard basket’. But what if I told you it didn’t have to cost that much to give your room a whole new look?  The most helpful piece of advice I ever received opened my eyes to the idea of cost-saving via detail changes: “If you want a new look, don’t buy a new outfit – change your accessories and give your existing wardrobe a new feel for a portion of the cost.” (Thanks Mum!)…

    The magic of decorating with indoor plants

    I have a very black thumb. It appears I cannot keep anything alive from hearty cacti to the resilient Australian native. So you should all be a bit worried that I have been gambling with decorating with indoor plants. It’s a bit random but the reason I decided to get some indoor plants for our home was because of our Christmas tree – bear with me – the luscious green of the tree really livened up our living room and made the drab space more inviting. After we took down the tree in January (LATE January – Oops) I really felt like the room was needing something. Purchasing our house…
