luggage – put your name on it

I love making things easier, just by having your name on something makes things so much easier right! just like this custom suitcase from The Daily Edited super easy to spot with my name on it after you land at the airport!

anniversary

Time flies it’s been 5 years today with Sophia since we drove all the way from Sydney to Sale in Victoria (9 hours!)

She is the best dog ever!

less

Not everything needs to cost a lot, some of the best things are found treasures, case in point these branches I have collected recently usually on a Sunday walk in my neighbourhood.

Found, collected, thoughtfully but together no over stying here! less is more so keep it simple!

good morning

There’s no better way to start the day in Byron Bay, wake up, a walk on the beach, meditate, swim and then coffee. Ahhhh the simple things in life why do we make things so complicated!

HAPPY Birthday to me

IKEA + you Makeover

IKEA + you Before and after makeover

I love this make over by IKEA Australia

Living in a share house for 10 plus years it was time (well actually way overdue) for an an update for David and Curtis ( winners from the Tempe store) and the timing could not have been more right to create a new bedroom space for these two. A bedroom is a very important space, you go to sleep here and wake up here it has a huge impact on your mood and day and this clever and cool update creates a fresh new space for this inner city couple to have their very own sanctuary.

Responding to David and Curtis  needs for more storage, well actually storage that works and satisfies their needs makes all the different in their space, a place for everything and everything in its place!

I love how the team embrace the peach walls by coordinating modern solutions that complement the space  ( no need to paint over these they just need a little push in the right direction)  by adding new elements that showcase key sentimental items all making the space feel fresh and new.

tip add elements of colour with a nod to midcentury and embrace the retro feel. Work with house plants to enhance this look.

Sometimes the best makeovers are ones that are simple and make your space work and feel better

the natural bedding company

I love a good nights sleep just as much as I like to support small, local, ethical and natural/organic, responsible choices where possible, its all about better decisions ( for this you need top know all your options) investing in quality, buying better/buying less – really just trying to be a better human and a great mattress is a key ingredient to this.

 

My new dreamer mattress from The Natural Bedding Company ticks all these boxes and is super comfortable too
