Byron Bay hangs with Miss Sarah Glover

What happens when Miss Sarah Glover and I are both in Paradise aka Byron Bay? Of course she cooks up an epic meal ( lamb on the BBQ) and I fix us some drinks thanks to Brookies Gin (yum)

About last Friday, so Sarah happened to be in town for her Wild cook book launch, and I’m also be in town this week – of course this called for a cook up and a photo shoot!

In true Sarah style she pulls it all together with ease and thanks to our friends at Nikau store ( for the beautiful table ware)

Of course we are at The Atlantic Byron Bay

Bedroom styling for King Living

Recently I created four different bedrooms looks for King Living with bedlinen by In The Sac to showcase the King Living bed collection and to show how these beds can work in any style of home.

We created these four looks in the King Living studio in Sydney with photographer Felix Forest my goal was to create lived in and inspirational bedrooms to inspire.

What I like best about the beds we selected from King Living is they are all classic designs, that really do work in any space (and you can select from vast range of fabrics). One of the fun parts about working with King on this project is I get to actually choose the fabrics the beds are upholstered in.

Plus I enjoyed working with In The Sac sheets, quilts and pillow cases. All items are 100% pure Belgium linen so their luxurious look combined with an ‘on trend’ colour palette perfectly complimented each bed style.

  1. New York Monotone

This look featuring the slimline Neo bed, with its sleek , simple and low to the ground design.  I kept things tonal and I used lots of shades of grey for this bedroom (bedlinen and upholstery choices). Grey is an easy colour and works with everything and in just about any space, perfect as a foundation. When it came to decorating, I chose more masculine undertones and kept the decoration to a minimum.  Sometimes things in the interiors world can have a slight tendency to be a little more feminine ! I kept things minimal, neat and understated in a classic and timeless style.

    1. New York Luxe

    In this bedroom, we were inspired by New York, but created a feel that could be in London, Paris or LA too. I wanted it to feel chic, injecting colour with the art work and occasional furniture for a lived in luxe feel. Everyone wants a super luxe bedroom so we used the dramatic wingback Symphony bed headboard (how great is this upholstered bed head!)  I love this bedhead its a real statement piece. And, the charcoal quilt adds instant sophistication. How about this green velvet in the occasional chair and cushions that I love too !

    1. Bowral

    For this bedroom we injected some modern, country feels with some pretty pinks, complemented perfectly by In the Sac’s beautiful Musk linen quilt. Featuring the Promenade Storage Bed – I am obsessed with this natural linen fabric we upholstered the bed in. (I think this is my favourite bed).   The design is simple with no fuss and nice and low to the ground. The look is designed to for a feeling of escape, taking us away from the city for a weekend just like the perfect country getaway!

    This bedroom was all about relaxed coastal vibes – Just my style!  No need to guess my inspiration….. Bondi is my home ! This room is just like me, never far from the sea, lots of crisp white, with tan leather and chambray blues, this chambray Serenade quilted bed head is like your favourite pair of jeans it will go with anything…..consider it a neutral ! And probably my favourite look of the four !

I have partnered with Canon to share some styling tips about printing and putting your photos on display in your home – I’m here to help get you inspired!
Your space should be filled with things you love and that tell a story. It is important to add your very own personal touch. Of course, displaying photos is the perfect way to do this. In today’s world we are all obsessed with our smartphones and snap everything we do, eat buy and see.
It’s hard to actually enjoy the moment and really be in the moment and while I think it is great to capture the life that we are living it’s also important to cherish these moments and put them on display.
I love to travel and collect things whilst away. These treasured memories and souvenirs should be cherished.
When decorating your home these memories and souvenirs are the things that really create your own personal style and how you like to live. So use them as a starting point in finding your style and you will find that this will naturally be reflected in the images you take.
Pictures don’t need to be perfect so take the pressure off yourself.
There’s plenty of time to perfect your technique. In fact some of my best photos are happy accidents when the light or timing has been just right.

My top tips for creative photo displays
1. Get your photos in your space and off your camera.
2. Decorate your space with personal touches.
3. Think outside of the box with creative ways and places to display your photos – shelves, bedside tables and sideboards are all great places.
4. Allow time for your style of photography and decorating to develop and evolve – print photos often and update your displays.
5. Group photos together and add or edit over time – style is an evolution so don’t leave things standing still but move them around.
6. Selecting a colour palette of the images (for example a group of black and white photos) ties a look together and creates a sense of sophistication and uniformity.
