Linen Love Part 2

In January this year I wrote a post about my love for my linen sheets and how amazingly cool they are to sleep in during the hot summer months. Read my post here.
Well, it's winter now and we have been having a cold spell here in NSW so it has been interesting to see how the linen sheets cope during these wintery nights. I have to say that linen sheets are surprisingly warm to sleep in, they make our bed feel really cozy and the good news is the more you wash them the better they feel! 

Having Linen sheets has eliminated the need to have both summer and winter sheets in my linen cupboard. It also means that tricky in-between time when you aren't sure if you need the summer or winter sheets on the bed has gone because linen sheets are perfect all year round! 

I have become a complete Linen sheet tragic telling anyone who will listen just how good they are. I have bought white for my bed, however I do love the muted tones of grey, dune and chambray that are available.

This is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to share the love. 

Stay warm,

A Stunning Melbourne Apartment

This gorgeous Melbourne apartment was recently featured on The Design Files. The apartment belongs to Eddie Kaul and Richa Pant and has been designed by Hamish Guthrie and his Melbourne based interior design team. This apartment is a study in simplicity and elegance.  You can’t help but notice the Scandinavian influence in the furniture choices. The photos below were taken by Eve Wilson, so sit back and enjoy the simple beauty of this Melbourne Apartment.






 The Design Files have listed where you can buy many of the items photographed in these rooms, so click here if something has taken your interest.

Have a lovely day,

Wall Murals

For many years people have commissioned artists to paint murals in children's bedrooms, but what about taking the idea out into the rest of the house? I know you can buy wallpaper murals and they can be a cost effective way to create a similar look. But wouldn't it be fantastic to have an artist come into your home and work their magic…

If only my artist friend Colleen Ellington lived in Australia! Colleen is an artist of many years experience who lives and works in the UK. She sells her art worldwide through Artfinder or you can follow her creative process on her blog here

Enjoy your week,

Beacon Lighting

I think Beacon lighting have outdone themselves!! I am absolutely in love with their latest line of pendant and floor lights. There is something for everyone, but in particular, I adore the industrial/glass selection that is available now.

I'm considering these for my bedside tables and at the moment they are on sale with the second purchase at 50% off.

I think the concrete base could tie in nicely with the grey and white decor in my room.

I also like this very modern floor lamp which I thing could look pretty cool next to my black leather lounge. It's also available in white which would look great in contrast.

Loving this copper floor lamp too!

Its always fun to have a drool over something new!
Have a great weekend! G.x

Birthday Surprise

There's nothing more wonderful than giving to someone who is dear to you. Better still,is soaking up the sheer joy and excitement of that person's reaction, when you surprise them with a gift that they truly appreciate and are grateful for.

I purchased Katy Perry tickets for Olivia months ago and have kept them a surprise until her 12th birthday. Her reaction yesterday, was truly worth the wait! 


Have a lovely day. G.x

Floor mirrors

I love the idea of having a floor mirror in my bedroom.   

It would have to be a full length one so its likely to be heavy.

A piece of furniture or any decor that appears oversized in a room creates a feel of impressiveness or grandeur.

Why not save yourself the time and hassle of hanging a large and heavy mirror on a wall, when you can simply lean it wherever you fancy.

 The beauty of this idea is that when you feel the need for a change,you can move it anywhere, any time!

Stay warm this week... its getting colder!

Black Bedroom

Found this Bedroom on Daily Dream Decor, I hadn't thought of painting my bedroom black, but I really like this. The large windows mean there is still plenty of natural light and the owners have painted the walls above the windows white so the room doesn't look too 'heavy'.

What do you think?
Would you ever consider painting your bedroom 

BTW I love the hanging chair!
