I don’t think there is a woman alive who wouldn’t dream of having a beautiful walk in wardrobe, the extra storage space and a being able to lay everything out perfectly – and have a wall of shoes like this really would be a dream come true. Very good friends of ours are currently in the process of creating a beautiful walk in wardrobe, and in turn has inspired me to look out our wardrobes a little better and try and organise them as well as we can, so I thought I’d share a little winter wardrobe inspiration for this weekend as I plan on having a massive clean out in our wardrobe and try and work out how to create a space just for my shoes! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned, be sure to keep an eye out on the blog tomorrow, I’ve a delicious new recipe to share with you x

I love hunkering down in my office on rainy days, they’re always so productive and you finish the day feeling really good about everything. For those who so kindly follow me on instagram will have spotted that I’ve fallen a little in love with peg board since finding this pile of near new boards a few weeks ago in our local inorganic collection. Since then I’ve been moving it around the house and office trying to decide where to hang it and also what colour to paint it or leave it natural - I had so many lovely comments about what colour to choose and I finally settled on one. It’s a white paint with the slightest hint of mint, I didn’t want to get anything too bold, just yet, as I wanted the products that I style on it to pop. So in celebration of finding near new pegboard that has quickly found a spot in my office, here are a few of my favourite looks and products to style this versatile material – and of course office space. I’d love to know/see what you’d use pegboard for in your home. x

A little while ago I stumbled upon the most beautiful instagram feed that then led to one of the most lovely and thoughtful online shops I’ve seen in a while. I’ve been wanting to share these beautiful gifts by Bindle for a while now and thought that the middle of winter is the perfect time to treat yourself or a loved one of these gorgeous packs filled with easily the most well though out selection of Australian made items for any occasion. If you’re after a perfect gift idea for someone special be sure to take a peek at the full range of Bindles here – I’ve no doubt you’ll quickly fall in love with these truly stunning bindles. Happy shopping everyone. x
With the days getting shorter and colder it’s such a lovely time curl up inside and not feel bad about it at all – one of my favourite things to do during winter is to take myself to bed a little earlier than normal and curl up with a good book and delicious cup of tea. It always feels so indulgent. I’ve always had a deep love for beautiful bedding, it’s always been something that I’ve spent a little more on as I know that it will last and continue to get better with age – which was why I squealed with delight when I found out that Claudia from Indie Home Collective is now stocking the most beautiful Bedouin Societe linen bedding designed by Virginia Feldtman. To add a little more luxe to this already stunning collection – the linen used for their bedding is sourced from regions in Northern France, how divine is that? Not only is the bedding beyond soft to touch, it will last, get better with age and of course the pallet of neutral tones and pastels make for a perfect centrepiece to a French country inspired bedroom. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Indie Home Collective yet, make this the reason, I’ve no doubt you’ll fall madly in love with how Claudia has styled her beautiful shop. Happy lazy winter days everyone. x
After a crazy few weeks of flying between Rarotonga, Brisbane twice and back again it’s so lovely to be home and to settle back into the groove of things. Again I have to thank you all so much for your generous and loving support towards Gem and her family, they’re beyond honoured by your kindness.
So I thought I’d share one of the most beautiful homes that I’ve stumbled upon in a while – a truly perfect mix of crisp white walls, blonde wood floors and furniture, the most stunning all white marble kitchen and of course the most beautiful pops of bright art and pastel furniture to add colour to this gorgeous home. I think over the years I’ve finally found ‘my style’ for our home decor, I’ve always been drawn to white, blond wood, pastel and bright pops of colour – to me it’s a truly perfect combination as it’s a pallet you can easily add or remove new pieces to easily. I’ve no doubt this beautiful home will spark a little home decor inspiration for you! x

One of the very best parts about long weekends is getting to catch up on things around the home that have been on your ‘to do’ list forever – sorting out our bedside tables have been on my list for as long as I can remember. We didn’t really have the budget to sort anything out when we first moved into our home almost three years ago, plus it takes me that long to decided on furniture as there are so many stunning options out there, so we settled for old milk crates that neither of us liked and annoyingly had no storage. After naturally searching high and low for the perfect side table that was high enough to reach our rather high bed, the right size and of course a design that we wouldn’t tire of any time soon – we found, ordered and quickly built our beautiful new Brooklyn side tables from Mocka. And I’m in love, they’re so perfect!
My favourite part about any new furniture is getting to style it, especially bedside tables as each side can be styled so differently. However, you can never go wrong with a beautiful stack of books, magazines or cook books; a beautiful keepsake, I have the vows that Ben said to me at our wedding framed on my side and he has a photo of us from our school ball. A little art, fresh flowers, a light to read under, and of course a cozy blanket to curl into on a chilly evening. I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend I’d love to hear what you got up to over the long weekend, I’m off to add a few more books to my side of the bed. x
