Happy Birthday Hayle!!!

Well another year has passed and today we celebrated Hayley's birthday in French style at Montrachet in Paddington (Brisbane)! It was delightful from the moment we walked in! The service was exceptional, the food was to die for and the decor made us feel like we had stepped off the sidewalk in Paris! What more could a girl want! Happy birthday sis - can't wait to do it all again next year! Tracey xx

Pool Inspiration!

Things That Inspire have definitely inspired me this week with this stunning pool area! I have lots of work to do to get my pool area looking like this but it certainly helps to have pictures to show my husband and the paver. What's inspired you this week? Happy weekend!

Happy Hallways

Maybe it's because I have a narrow hallway with louvred linen cupboard doors such as this that this hallway really appeals to me. I love that no space is wasted, that every part of the house can be beautiful. The wallpaper is devine and the artwork makes it look like a gallery therefore giving it a purpose - love it!

Another hallway with wallpaper and artwork to keep it interesting!

I know this has been blogged about plenty of times but there is a good reason - its fabulous!!!

Miami's Mondrian Hotel!

While flicking through a magazine recently, I came across a write-up on the Mondrian Miami Hotel - such amazing interior design! Miami seems to have some fabulous hotels - definitely on the wish list to visit! Hope you have all had a great weekend - we have enjoyed the heat here in sunny Brisbane! Looks like it's time to put the boots and coats away already! Tracey xx

Weekend by the Bay!

We are heading back out to the bay tomorrow to enjoy the heat - it really feels like summer has arrived early! I just love this image from Pottery Barn kids - it's a reminder of all that summer has to offer! Happy weekend!

Happy House!

I just fell in love with Tori Spelling's home the moment I first saw it on "Hooked on Houses" blog. This house has such a happy feel to me! Of course the black kitchen might have been what first grabbed my attention but the splashes of colour with the stark white background gives this room real personality! I just adore the blue couch and the bright red dining chairs - it inspires me to take a few more risks!

Sweetest Courtyard!

via Traditional Home
I just adore this outdoor space Bobbi Brown has for her employee's to enjoy at their workplace! I think outdoor spaces like this are the perfect places to escape and refresh during the day and also to relax in in the evening after a busy day! Happy new week all!

Perfect Kitchen Inspiration!

(Traditional Home)

(via La Dolce Vita)

These are my two favourite kitchens at the moment. While I'm saving up for my ultimate kitchen, I have been saving many images over the last 2 years since moving into our home, just waiting for the day when I can book my kitchen guy in. I love the galley style of the first one and it would suit the space perfectly. My heart skipped a beat when I found the second image though - meanwhile I still have time to dream (unfortunately).
