Nature art work shop

You may have spotted on Instragram last Thursday and Friday that I attended the inaugural creative workshop at River Hawk Ranch an immersion into art and nature with Dominique Sutton 

To say the workshop was amazing is an understatement , a couple, of days deep in art and nature on a beautiful property by the river in Brunswick heads was magical.

We foraged for materials and tools, painted by the river and in the new studio at River Hawk

Lucky there is going to be more click here to see more and to find out about other workshops

perfection

This morning I woke up to this – yes this is un-styled, I did request Sophia to sit there and she obliged…

Often we can be consumed with making everything in our lives and homes perfect – the truth is perfection doesn’t exist and that imperfections make things truly beautiful

Let your life and home evolve and g ive yourself a break, relax and enjoy the beauty of real life

simple things

Simple things like inexpensive flowers at home always make me smile go on treat yourself you deserve it!

In bed with Sheridan

Everyone knows Im a fan of all shades of blue, I love the ocean it inspires me everyday, always.

Styling your home should be fun and not complicated – be confident in your own style and make your place great!

With the change of seasons (winter is coming) it’s the perfect time to update your bedroom, make it calm and cosy (always) nothing too difficult just a fresh set of sheets and a new quilt cover ( I selected the Hewett in denim ) and a brand new art work ( I selected Lorette Framed Canvas ) is all it takes for an easy update.

Sweet dreams in a serene bedroom with ocean inspired hues…

MJG Jac + Jack winter 18 edit

My friends at Jac + Jack have a way with colour, by this I mean they always get it just right!

I love their use of a rich but subdued palette, never too bright but just enough colour! I mean this blanket green and butter and honeycomb yellow mixed with classic shades of grey, I love it all!

Jac + Jack always mix classic contemporary style with just enough edge.

Here is my edit from the mens collection, shop the mens and woman winter 18 collections in store and online now
