Home Beautiful Magazine Feature

Australian Home Beautiful magazine did a feature on my home back in October '06

It was very exciting to see it come out on the news stands and certainly a boost in my career for Interior Styling. Thanks Home Beautiful!




A few things have changed in the last couple of years. I will post some new photos in the near future. The paint on my loungeroom walls are Porters Duchess Satin in Oyster. I still love the colour. It reflects alot of light into a room with no windows. My kitchen doesn't usually look this uncluttered.


This is my beautiful princess sitting on my antique Italian Rococco sofa which I bought from a lovely couple who own a series of shops around Australia and UK called French & English, formerly known as The French House.


These are my 3 kids rooms which no longer look like this. I get bored very quickly (chronic stylist syndrome).

OMG I have this issue and it's one of my favourite features ever!

Just as pedaling said, your home is absolutely breathtaking.

The aqua and oyster walls are a perfect choice and your stunning aubusson rug had me sighing out loud.

Hi! - i REMEMBER your house - so gorgeous - can't wait to see the updated photos. I especially remember your kitchen.
Thanks for dropping by my blog - I'll definitely be back. And I agree- you Queenslanders have the most awesome style! (my mum is a Queenslander, sadly she didn't get the style gene and my bedroom certainly didn't look like the ones belonging to your children when I was young!) x

In many offices it is seen that in order to build coherence between the theme of the office and its furniture, the very vital issues like comfort and easy usage are somewhat ignored, though at times unknowingly. The arredamento mobili ufficio should no doubt be attractive and suiting to the theme of the office, but at the same time it should also have the basic qualities that are expected of it http://www.momI.it
