Before I trained as an interior stylist, putting a room together at home that I could be proud of was a pretty overwhelming experience. Knowing what colours to combine, what textures to introduce and where to position all the furniture was all a little 'too hard basket', and often resulted in my rooms feeling completely confused.

I'm a huge fan of pets and I truly believe that they make our lives - and our homes - infinitely better.For those of us who don't have kids (and even those of us that do, actually), a four-legged friend is our child. We feed them, we clean them, we fret and worry over them and we spend truckloads on them when they get sick. And sometimes spend loads on them just because.

I’m a firm believer in being inspired by the everyday. I think if you look hard enough, you can pretty much use anything in your everyday life (even the seemingly mundane) to inspire an interior design scheme.These moments are what I call Everday Inspo – and you should use them to inspire room designs in your home!

About this time of the year, each year, I start nesting. You know how pregnant women tend to do that when the baby is about to arrive? I do it about six weeks before Christmas hits.As an absolute festive nutter, Christmas ideas start bubbling away early November, as I think about how I'll decorate my apartment for the silly season.

So it was quite a gigantic week this week on The Block as The Blocktagon terrace reveals went down and the couples got the chance to re-do their failed rooms.It was such a bumper week, in fact, that I've had to split out the posts into two seperate articles!
