Spring is here!!

Spring means lovely weather, lounging by the pool with fruity iced teas and eating amazing dinners outside. We're very excited! Hoping you guys in the Southern Hemisphere are excited for the beautiful weather ahead too!

P.S - it also means Christmas is getting closer and who doesn't love Christmas!

Cafes & Restaurants

Hello beautiful people! Just this morning I was flicking through Vogue Living's Eat, Drink, Design Awards shortlist, it is so inspiring! The first few cafes and restaurants pictured are from the shortlist. The industrial look is really in right now, which is good because it looks amazing if it's done right. The other few are just a couple of other gorgeous, gorgeous eatery's. Absolutely loving the third, which is a cute little coffee shop down in Melbourne. We visited it when we were down there last, for 'research' purposes of course! ;)

Hope you enjoy cafe and restaurant interiors as much as we do! We'll definitely share more favourites soon! 

Thanks for stopping by! x

Marble is such a beautiful and elegant natural material. It looks absolutely gorgeous in kitchens and bathrooms as counter tops, floor tiles or a backsplash.  It's also used in all sorts of furniture, accent pieces and jewellery too! We love the marble hexagonal tiles! Also loving some of Kelly Wearstler's marble collection and who doesn't love a good RillRill marble necklace.

It's been a bit quiet on here for a while! We thought we'd share some pictures of the exciting things we've been up to lately! A couple of weeks ago we ventured down to Melbourne and then to Sydney not long after to see the wonderful Million Dollar Decorator, Mary McDonald. It was such an amazing opportunity, so thank-you to all who organised it and made it happen! We've also recently wrapped up and begun some exciting projects, which we're excited to share with you!

Catching Up!

For those of you that do not follow us on Facebook or Instagram, this is what we have been up to! These are some snapshots of our stand at the HIA home show in Brisbane a week and a half ago!

We love the custom made chairs and the gorgeous artwork by Belynda Henry. It was a standout piece against the grass cloth backdrop. Beautiful dark stained European Oak timber floors by "Timber Flooring Unlimited". It was a lot of work to put it all together but well worth the effort! Now we are madly catching up on work and starting with new clients that we met at the show! Looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs! xx

Preparing for HIA Home Show!

Sorry we have been missing in action of late! We have been very busy with our usual client work and also preparing to showcase a room design at the HIA Home Show here in Brisbane! We are very excited that artist Belynda Henry will be showing a gorgeous piece of her work on our stand!

We would love for any of our Brisbane readers to come in and see us and say hi.  We will post some images of the room after the show but it is always better to come and see it in person! xx

Colour of the Year!

It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge that Emerald Green is the Pantone colour of the year!  Of course, as far as I am concerned, green is the "it" colour every year but it will be exciting to see more green coming through in fashion and interiors!  Here are a couple of my recent favourites...

Love this dining space from Chicago Home & Garden!

This is perfection to me!  From the latest issue of South African Elle Decoration!

A Belated Happy New Year!

We have been enjoying some family time over the Christmas and New Year so have taken a bit of break from the blog - hopefully will find the time to do more posts this year.  I was inspired by this gorgeous home in the latest Architectural Digest that was in my inbox this morning...

This is a beautifully restored home in Umbria by architect Benedikt Bolza.  This room is off the kitchen and I love that it is decorated with bottles of tomatoes grown on the farm!

This bathroom in the master bedroom is stunning with the copper pipe towel rails...

I just adore this room with most of the furniture designed and custom made by the's making me long for winter with all the gorgeous moody colours and the stunning fireplace!

From the outside you can see a modern addition which looks fabulous...

And the architect with his gorgeous family!  It's been 8 months since I returned from our Italian holiday and these images have made me long to return.

Happy New Year all - hope all of your dreams come true this year!

Christmas in the Sun!

I love looking at gorgeous images of a white Christmas as much as anyone but being an Australian girl, these images have inspired me to love our Christmas in the Sun just as much!

This is just perfection to me - lemons are one of the most beautiful of fruits and I often buy bags of them just for decorative purposes (and they smell amazing!)

Yellow is just gorgeous for Christmas decorating in a sunny climate!

Such a pretty idea...

Hope wherever you are celebrating Christmas you are enjoying decorating your homes in readiness for enjoying this season with family and friends!  T xx

What We've Been Up To!

I know it has been a long time since we showed any of our work.  Just thought we would share a few snaps of different projects that we have been working on lately!

Hopefully we will get around to updating our website soon - always seems to be at the bottom of the "to-do" list!
