Aquatic Paradise
It's been a busy week for me this week! I have had 2 homes on the go. I listed one yesterday and will list the second one this weekend. This beauty, above, is in the shimmering waterways of Aquatic Paradise at Birkdale, the closest canal living to the Brisbane CBD. Paradise! I sat and watched the sun set in that pool cabana with not a care in the world. I will [more]
Dream Kitchen Makeover
  This amazing kitchen renovation, by Design Manifest, stopped me in my tracks the other day! Have a look at the before photos .... ... and then the transformation! Isn't it just beautiful?! Read all about it HERE. Happy Saturday! A-M xx [more]
Gold Kitchen Hardware
  I am seriously crushing on the rise and rise of gold/copper/metal everything at the moment. Surely it's going to stay and not just be a fleeting trend? It's so 'forever' in my books. In the gold hardware department, I can't think of anything more glamorous for a kitchen. It takes the whole aesthetic up a notch I reckon. Love how the gold hardware is enhanced by the gold glassw[more]

Monday Nook: 10 Cosy Bed Nooks
  I had every intention of publishing my Monday Nook post earlier this morning, whilst answering emails and generally getting ready for the day, but I spontaneously decided to drive my big lad all the way into school today, so he could skip public transport. I am getting all sentimental about his last 2 terms of school ever and how 13 years of his schooling are going to be over in the [more]
Nice Things
  Back here again! A day after I last posted! Who am I? It's Sunday ... and I have time to breathe! It's been a busy week with lots of 'nice things' thrown into the mix. I did an interview with Vendu and they wrote nice things about me HERE. I sold one of my beautiful Bulimba townhouses and got to drag my big boy away from his study, so we could spend the morning mov[more]

Halcyon House
Last week, I had the opportunity to stay at the beautiful new boutique hotel, Halcyon House, right on Cabarita Beach, on the NSW north coast. Halycon House is a complete renovation of the old Cabarita Hideaway Motel. I remember the old motel and I remember the beautiful arches! ... which they kept! Fabulous! With the interior design by Anna Spiro, from Black and Spiro, I expected exq[more]
The Great Outdoors With Super Amart
Brought To You By Nuffnang And Super Amart. One of the areas I have found challenging, in the staging and styling of my homes for sale, is furnishing the outdoor living spaces. For me, I have found it difficult to source good quality, affordable outdoor furniture that is robust enough to be moved over and over again and will weather the storms between open homes! That was until now! [more]
In The Blink Of An Eye
My eldest son had his Year 12 School Formal last Friday. It only seems like yesterday he was this little man. In the blink of an eye. It has been such a privilege being Mum to my beautiful young men. Grade One! I bored everyone on the night with Instagram spam, so sorry if you have already seen these photos. I just want to record them here so they are always here in [more]

Blue and White Table Settings
I'm having a bit of a fossick through my files, for inspiration for a coastal home I am styling in the coming week, so I thought I'd share some of my favourite blue and white table settings. I seem to have a lot of saved images that feature rattan place mats! I love how the rattan adds texture and depth and a feeling of casual elegance. So simple, yet so p[more]
