indoor trees

I love indoor plants at home and in all of my other projects, Its a simple way of adding life to any space, but I have spotted a new trend taking this idea to the next level. Interiors are not only about statement furniture pieces but statement indoor trees Go green indoors in a big way and create your own forest! and add a tree to your space.

yellow! escape the winter blues

Yellow is my go to happy shade. Its winter and cold here in Sydney, so my best tip making it through the cooler months is to inject a pop of your favourite shade to your day/space.

Big or small you can’t underestimate the power of colour, use this surprisingly easy to use shade to add some sunshine to your home, it really does work with just about everything! Think artworks, accessories, cushions and more.

sagitine christmas

Recently I styled some Christmas images for fellow beach side resident Sagitine  – some of the most beautiful storage you will find! yes I said beautiful and storage in the same sentence!

We had a fun day creating a little Christmas magic, its amazing what a little imagination and a roll of ribbon and some masking/painters tape you can come up with! A Ribbon Christmas Tree! its easy enough to do at home and great if you don’t have space for a 3 dimensional tree! we added in a cute dog for some of our shots ( Sagitine Owner Tina’s dog Spike) and we were set!

MJG 7 bedroom decorating tips

Winter is here and the bedroom is the perfect place for a little seasonal update. I prefer to keep things simple when decorating a bedroom. Once you have the basics sorted, such as bed, bedside table, storage and lighting its time to get decorating…

Here are my simple tips when decorating in the bedroom especially in winter…

1. inject colour – Add a little or a lot. Im a big fan of introducing colour into the home, currently I’m loving pastel shades of mint or ocean sea foams – updating your bedlinen instantly updates the look and feel of your bedroom – its as simple as that!

2. play with pattern and texture – pattern and texture add visual interest to any room – why not add a statement blanket to add personality to your bed.

3. display – your bed side table is the perfect canvas for a little display – but don’t forget all your essentials. A tray is the perfect answer to contain all your things and makes for the framework for a bedside vignette.

4. add layers – the colder months make for the prefect time to add blankets, cushions and throw practical and easy on the eye too. Layer it up!

5. Keep it personal – Your bedroom should be your sanctuary for rest and relaxation, so surround yourself with things that make you smile, a collection of things that mean something to you. Fresh flowers beside the bed always makes me smile.

6. Splurge – its ok to splurge on quality bed linen (really!) I’m a big fan of natural materials such as cotton and linen, I love how they feel against the skin.

7. Try it on – just as you would when shopping for clothes, check the colour of the bedlinen against your skin – sometimes bed linen is the only thing that you are wearing and it should make you look and feel great!
