7 Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a really lovely lazy weekend – ours was full of catching up with our wonderful family and breakfast for dinner, it was perfect! I only just stumbled upon this stunning bright and white home via Coco Lapine Design Blog this morning and after then clicking through to the original source, Alla Bilder I simply had to share it – this home is absolutely stunning! I’ve always been a huge fan of bright white homes with touches of either bright colours or soft natural tones, white really is such a wonderful pallet to play with and of course can easily be changed when the mood strikes.I’m completely smitten with the stunning white dining room with gold accents, the cork headboard in the bedroom and the gorgeous study nook – everything really is too perfect for words! Be sure to take a peek at the rest of this beautiful home here. x


2 Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a really wonderful weekend – ours was wonderfully lazy, we caught up with friends, brunched and finally bought a coffee table that I’ve had on my wish list forever!

This stunning DIY Concrete Diamond by A Merry Mishap is now on the very top of my DIY to-do list, it’s so stunning and can be painted any colour you like or of course left natural, click here for how to make your own diamond. x

Living Room Decor

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend – how incredible is the weather at the moment, you wouldn’t believe that it’s almost winter with how warm it is! Something very exciting happened in our home over the weekend, after three years of trying to decide on a couch to get we finally found our dream one from Freedom – and it’s perfect!! So now I’m on a little mission to decorate our lovely new lounge room with gorgeous cushions, throws and of course a little humour – how incredibly gorgeous is the dinosaur bookend! We absolutely adore simple white and grey tonnes as a base for everything – but of course I love injecting shocking bursts of colour into the mix, I can’t wait to wander around Sydney this week and pick up a few new goodies for our lounge. x

Happy Friday everyone, gosh what a weird and full on week it has been I’m very happy to be nearing another long weekend! For those who have been lovely enough to follow Made From Scratch for a while, you’ll know that I love neutral palettes with bright pops of color which is just how we set up our house. Now that we’ve settled into our home I want to start really decorating with more color and wonderful objects and art, the first thing that we really do need is a bookcase {how incredible is the on above?} to display our books, art and crazy little objects we have collected over the years. I’m also crazy about bed linen, if I could I would probably have a new duvet cover ever other week, there are just too many beautiful ones out there! I’d love to know what your next project around the house is and what your plans are over the long weekend are I think were going to get Kora a kennel… I hope you have a wonderful weekend and it isn’t too soggy. xx
