Decor Heaven

I love everything about this arrangement; the pale greys, greens, blues and whites, the symmetry and the beautiful aged patina of the pieces. Chandeliers and mirrors are a decorating marriage made in heaven, don’t you think? And it helps that I’m a big fan of blue and white it all!

Fab wallpapers

I mentioned in my last post that I was thinking of using a wallpaper in my bedroom makeover; here it is in a dining room above in a different colourway (above). What do you think? I really like the simple colour scheme here and the way the dark floor and table pops against all the white.

Love this turquoise/black/white scheme too – the chandelier makes it of course!

Here’s an example of the very best place to start using wallpapers if you’re afraid of going bold – the powder room! It’s so nice to get a surprise shot of colour when you walk into these little spaces. And I do love orange and pink toile paired with the crisp white.

Another peek into a powder room..(above)

This is one of my favourites (above). I’ve used the fabric but never the wallpaper, and I’m dying to! What a fabulous hallway.

Love this fun paper for a little kids’ bathroom.

An oldie but a goodie! Chiang Mai Dragon always gives a big punch of chinoiserie to a wall (above).

I’m not sure who makes this paper but I absolutely love it – floral but the muted greens and taupes in it mean that I think (some) men could live with it too..

Have a great Friday – it’s going to be warm, windy and stormy in Melbourne today – lovely! xx

Celerie Kemble in Elle Decor

Isn’t this house designed by Celerie Kemble featured in Elle Decor amazing? Quite traditional but with a few more modern touches, and lots of beautiful shades if blue. To me it just has that feeling of high-end decorating – no ebay bargains here!

Love a good salon arrangement of small artworks.

What an amazing piece of furniture (above)! Love the blue chinoiserie wallpaper and the Chinese celadon vases.


My favourite room in the house has got to be the lacquered powder-blue walk-in wardrobe. This is definitely one for my Dream House!

Am I the only one frustrated by the lack of affordable and stylish homewares in Australia? We have a lot of good stuff, but nowhere near what seems to be available at every price level in the States. One thing I get asked about a lot (and that I’ve wanted to buy myself) is faux-bamboo overhead lighting, which is a little hard to come by here. So I’m happy to report that I’m now offering to my clients two faux-bamboo pendant lighting options, in both small and large sizes.



The large faux-bamboo pendant light comes in white, black, coral, yellow, red and green. Shades come at an extra cost.

The smaller faux-bamboo lantern is available in white and natural. I think it would be great in a bathroom or powder room!
