Coogee home

A recently completed project.
I love the rhythm, the lovely visual harmony, and the lush, sub-tropical theme which allowed for generous planting with a focus on texture, shape and colour.

Monday inspiration / Malmo home

I am totally and utterly in love with this beautiful home. So much gorgeousness in one building is not easy to achieve but here style, comfort and beauty all live happily side by side. There's a great sense of serenity that transpires from every corner and every room, and even though the scale is grand this family home is without a doubt warm and welcoming, it's difficult not to fall in love with it.

Caldesign loves / October edit

Things to do this month:

Embrace alfresco living. It's the perfect time of the year to re-dicover your backyard and enjoy alfresco meals;

Add a pop of colour to your living room with fresh blooms - it's the easiest way to bring spring inside;

Entertain the children with a fun themed breakfast or afternoon tea on the weekend - get them involved with the decor and the cooking, they'll love it!

Swap wool for cotton and opt for a cooler colour scheme by changing cushions, blankets and accessories - it's a great way to turn the temperature down indoors!

Re-decorate the spare room - put a mood board together to get you started on any new decorating project, it always works!

Green and gold

 It's not for everyone but it works really well in some homes and it's a brilliant scheme for restaurants and cafes. Green is soothing and calming, gold is rich and glamorous, perfect example of "opposites attract". If you don't want to make a big statement, you may like to simply add a small gold vase with foliage in it, framed gold artwork or a small green trolley or desk with gold straws/pencils in a holder. It's totally up to, just add as much as you wish. Here's a selection of what's on my inspiration board this week...lot's of greenery too from the garden on my desk in the form of branches and moss, it's a gorgeous time of the year. Enjoy!
