soft under foot

Its getting a little colder, so its time to get cosy at home, but don’t forget about whats underfoot. A rug is one of the best things you can invest in,  your feet will thank you especially in winter, patterned, neural, ethic or colourful theres a rug perfect for your space.

When choosing a rug think about the rest of your space a rug can set the tone of a room, its like an artwork for your floor

Heres three rugs from Early Settler their second collection of rugs called “welcome home”  featuring some current trends Modern Moroccan, Bohemian, Art Deco, Natural, Botanical and Luxe.

Heres three that I have styled up to inspire you to try in your space! don’t underestimate how a rug can transform a space!

“Palo Santo”

It’s no secret I’m somewhat a (modern) hippy – I practice daily meditation with The Broadplace I’m attracted to candles, crystals and burning sage. Well my latest discovery thanks to my friends at Totem Road is “palo santo”  these lovely timber sticks from Peru can be burnt to promote good luck, clean your house of bad energy and enhance relaxation and best of all they smell beautiful

paradise found

Ok so not every job I work on is this special, last week I spent 2 amazing days on the border of Queensland and NSW in Paradise at what can be only described as a magical property in a lush bush setting owned my some of the nicest/loveliest people you could ever meet ( I mean who every gets such marvellous floral leis as a thank you gift when u leave!) It was a house shoot for a publication but it was fully immersive for me and the team I worked with.

To be honest my work/life looks petty awesome on Instagram (the whole point of the edit right?) I look super busy always ( I am) but always have time for new projects – so don’t be afraid of getting in touch, the truth is life is pretty good, I work hard but to be honest I always have fun, I love the life I have created. Don’t get me wrong being a stylist is HARD WORK the perception is that its a super glamorous  job with heaps of perks (true) but the bottom line being a stylist involves a lot of things that are not styling or remotely glamorous! I love my job and the reality is fabulous! and I have created this through hard work and enthusiasm and yes last week I was sent to Paradise and it was work!
