light it up

Take a look at this fun and super easy DIY I created at home.

Using LIFX smart lights I have created an awesome feature on my console ( a great place for a display)

Attaching the LIFX Beam LED kit to the frame around the print ( super easy as the all connect together and attached with removable strips) really sets the (any)mode, the system is operated by their app on your phone and the colours are endless what a lite idea!

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!
