Sunday drives to palm beach

You have got to love a sunny winters day in Sydney! it almost felt like summer today!

I love a Sunday drive and heading to to Palm Beach otherwise known as Summer Bay ( for all the fans of Home and Away) always makes for a great trip. Of course I love all things nautical so we headed to The Boathouse Palm Beach which is right one the water, the perfect spot for lunch!

Style Sourcebook

You can never have tool many tools when you’re renovating or decorating a room.

Style Sourcebook is a new Australian product sourcing and styling destination that has been developed to help you renovate, decorate and create different mood boards. Featuring more than 700 brands including MJG and 30,000 products, the site allows you to search for finishes, fittings, furniture and homewares all on the same platform, and then digitally style them via a mood board tool. For those looking for inspiration, the site also enables you to view product styling ideas and expert advice from interior designers then contact them directly if you would like to discuss a similar project.

Style Sourcebook was founded by Lisa Cousens who, after renovating her home and spent hours searching separate websites and driving around to collect samples and swatches from individual retailers. Lisa wanted to create an online destination that helped simplify this process to make it more time efficient and enjoyable. The objective is to bring all the products, tools and inspiration together across different retailers to help you create your perfect space.

here’s a couple of mood boards I have created

west elm – new modern

Here’s a look at the new West Elm 2017 collection “The new Modern” Johanna Uurasjarvi, West Elm’s new Creative Director, is bringing a fresh vision to the brand, refining the brand’s design philosophy and its very definition of “modern”. While West Elm has always been about modern style, they’re evolving along with the way we live today. The collection still has element of mid century influences and is colourful but refined, causal but polished, the evolution feels slightly more sophisticated, the collection is in store and online now (in Australia)
