major minor latest collection

Im excited to share the latest collection of bed linen from Major Minor ( my most favourite yet )  maybe because I styled and photographed the collection ( yes very exciting)

Im loving their most recent colour palette, inkstripe, ash, olive and slate are my stand out favorites – so timeless and classic and all the shades I love on my own bed!

The collection was shot exclusively at River Hawk Ranch a truly inspirational location belonging to good friends Kim and Stephen, just outside of Byron Bay.

diy blinds

I love a project and the long weekend was the perfect opportunity for a little DIY

The problem was 3 ugly windows, and because I focus on solutions not problems the solution was easy white shutters

I love the look of these classic white shutters and how they have transformed my windows, best of all it was all super easy, I measured and installed them myself all thanks to DIY Blinds

With an easy online service and excellent customer support I did this all by myself (well with the help of a couple of their how to videos)

One down two to go!

must love plants

Im not sure why its so but plants just make an interior come to life, maybe by adding some life this creates a feel good vibe, who knows but my indoor plant collection is growing (again) which ever way you look at it you must love plants!

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!

    1. Bondi

    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 !
