With the coming of the new year I have set myself a month-long goal of organising, planning, redecorating and tidying in every nook and cranny of my life to make sure that my space (and mind) is clear and ready to tackle what’s ahead. The biggest area of focus for me is my desk space, I am typically known as having the messiest desk in the entire office so this year I’m focused on turning a new leaf and enforcing a tidier standard in my home office.Read More

I'll be the first to admit, I'm a homewares addict. Candles, cushions, vases... you name it, I just love decorating my space and manifesting a sense of my personal style in a room. It makes me feel at ease and inspired if I am surrounded by my favourite things. So I am always on the lookout for beautiful brands with the same emphasis on a laid back, contemporary bohemian style. Not only this but I try to gather unique products, accumulating them slowly so that I can create a look that is truly my own.Read More
Working for many years in homewares retail I have come to learn a thing or two about bedlinen. A major part of the education process that I have experienced is the difference a material can make to not only the look and feel of your bedding but also the long term implications – in particular those associated with longevity and sleep quality.Read More
I don't think I can remember a time when I didn't have candles in my room. Over the years they have come to be my indulgence, I really enjoy that ritualistic feeling of lighting a candle and letting a delicious scent fill the room.Read More

As previously mentioned at the end of last year I packed up my life in Melbourne to make the move to Alexandria, Sydney. We were lucky enough to get a brand spanking new apartment in this inner city suburb and I couldn't wait to get here to start decorating the place. However I knew starting from scratch was going to be expensive, the cost of moving alone was a big blow, so styling the apartment with champagne tastes on just about a cask-wine budget was going to be a challenge.Read More
Last weekend I took a quick trip to Brisbane and I knew that the first stop I wanted to make was the new Assembly store in James Street, Fortitude Valley. Assembly Label is designed in Sydney and their line is made up of simple, classic basics in neutral colours and quality fabrics. Taking inspiration from Sydney's coastal surrounds their line of curated staples embody an effortless contemporary style. Very laid-back, 'casual-cool'.Read More
If you take one look on my Instagram at the moment you will notice that I'm particularly into layering foliage at the moment... Ok ok, I'll admit slightly obsessed. I have mostly been experimenting with two different takes on this look and the best bit is this is probably the cheapest way of transforming an entire room in a flash. Forget spending big bucks on huge floral arrangements or ornaments, with a selective eye you can buy a small selection of unique foliage and even bulk it out with pieces picked from your own back yard.Read More
