Tasmanian Country Home

Hi everyone, how is your week going? I've been busy finalising designs for my latest clients, but thought it would be time for a breather to clear my head. You get so engrossed in new designs and they really take over your head space. While I was looking through some styling ideas in my Pinterest page I came across one of these images below. I decided to investigate it further to see where it came from and discovered some more of this beautiful Tasmanian home on

It is just the sort of country home I would love to live in someday. Its relaxed and has such a lovely lived in feel to it. Bright and airy with a beautiful garden to complement, it really is quite special.

Spring is in the Air

Wow, the first day of Spring is here! I love it, the sun is shining and the weather is just perfect for spending time outdoors. I put all the cushions back on my outdoor lounge yesterday and enjoyed a cup of tea and flipping through a mag. So its time to start thinking about decorating those outdoor spaces and creating your own little hideaway to while away some beautiful weekend hours.

You just need to find a little shady spot, big enough for a chair or some floor cushions and start creating. Add in some coloured cushions, dreamy floaty fabric maybe hanging from a tree, lanterns, a little side table for drinks, a rug, potplant (if you're on a balcony) and maybe space to share with someone else.

You dont have to spend a lot of money to do this either - go through the cupboards and see what you have at home. Dig out that old chair from the garage and give it a coat of paint or just throw some coloured cushions on it. Even a little old stool can be used as a side table - or a milk crate with some magazines stacked on top. A cute entrance mat could be used as a mini rug on a balcony and of course a few potplants for greenry.

Here's some lovely photos to give you inspiration - have fun!
