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 ceramics..love it all!

My new favourite house!

I am so in the market for a new house! Something like this would be a dream – timber-lined walls for that tropical/beachy feel (there’s not a lot of this in Melbourne I have to say, but it was everywhere in Brisbane) – a big open plan living room with soaring ceiling (below), and that amazing front door that you can see in the mirror’s reflection. I also LOVE all the lanterns – I’m a big fan of lantern-style lighting. See that rug (above)? We are using an almost identical pale patchwork cowhide rug in the entry way of a client’s house. I love this entry setup with the huge mirror behind the hall table.

Another lantern! Love the white walls and the white piping on the black chair covers, all paired with a big rustic timber table- and those windows!

Do I need to mention the lantern in the kitchen?

Love the pared-back windows with no curtains and the modern take on a Moroccan style sitting area (above). I could very easily play my copycat room here too…

Do you think the bed was placed at this angle for the photo or that it’s always like this? The simple white wardrobes are perfect- they just blend into the background here.

This room is just about perfect for me! I always love a mixture of the refined and elegant, and the rustic and masculine. And all those textures are gorgeous..

My Dream room!!

Living room in greys and blues

I love this beautiful Hamptons-inspired living room. The shades of grey with powder blue and pale lavender are gorgeous, and I love all the natural light and the beachy white tongue and groove panelled walls. But the best part has got to be the herringbone brick floors paired with the casual-but-stylish sisal rug. If I could build my dream home my double-height living room would have windows and floors like this!

Why grey is the best colour

Have you been watching The Block? One of my favourite things in terms of the decorating is Josh and Jenna’s grey-wall theme running through their house. I love grey walls. They look so sophisticated paired with more grey and ivory, but if you want colour you can add green or pink or lilac or orange (yes, just about anything!), and that will work too. It puts me in mind of one of my favourite grey bedrooms:

I love the darker grey silk curtains and the muted grey rug. And that bed is pretty special, too.

Who doesn’t love Hamptons-inspired decorating (above)? What does it for me here is the scale of the pieces: big, chunky grey console topped with giant glass lamps and big pieces of coral. My house used to be completely ‘Hamptons’ style with a bit of French provincial thrown in, but I’ve moved on to a lot of colour  and a sort of crazy fusion of Hollywood Regency and Chinoiserie. This pic makes me want to go back!

To me this dark grey is a little more masculine. Love how it works with the gold touches, the mirror and that great chandelier – so glam!
