Paris in January is very cold, believe me, I’ve been there! But despite the big freeze outdoors, it’s still a wonderful place to be! I had the privilege of attending Maison et Objet last year and had a wonderful time (to say the least)! M&O is a huge interiors trade show held twice a year

During our six-week trip to the UK and Europe in 2018, we spent a few days in Vienna, which we had spent some time in a few years previously (but more on that later). Vienna is a classically beautiful city, famous for cultural events, imperial sights, coffee houses, cosy wine taverns, and more besides. As

Winter is just around the corner and evenings and morning have a decided nip in the air. Fear not though, there’s actually lots to love about winter. Things like curling up with a great book in front of an open fire or log burner, nourishing soups, a long soak in the bath and the list

Creating a beautiful and unique home takes time. Above all, a home should reflect the people who live there, telling a story of who they are, their journey through life and the many layers that go to make up the whole. It requires a considered approach to the layering (there’s that word again) process. The

Can you believe we’re almost half way through the year?! Hands up those who are hanging out for some relax and revive time? A great way to recharge the batteries, if only for five minutes, is to have a dedicated spot in your own home where you can do just that. It doesn’t have to

Designing rooms for kids has got to be the most fun ever!! There’s just something so wonderful about their natural curiosity and their joie de vie, that often falls by the wayside as we get older. In fact, I sometimes think there’s a little child in all of us that never really goes away. The

At the risk of repeating myself yet again, I believe that art comes in many forms. That’s why I was excited to learn about Ronél Jordaan’s work in an article from MOM (Maison et Objet magazine). In 2003, Ronél, having been a textile designer for twenty-six years, did an art therapy course which included a

Wainscoting is a wonderful way to add interest and up the elegance factor in a room. It’s also a great solution if you’re after a more formal look. With our project in Pitt Town, near Windsor in NSW, I decided to use wainscoting on the open-plan living room walls, giving it a distinctive point of
