Polka Dots in Decor - Wallpaper Inspiration from The Life CreativeI'm obsessed with polka dots and I'm not afraid to admit it. Personally I think they far surpass the fading fad of chevron and are far more classic than a stripe will ever be. Polka dots are fun without being too juvenile - and the size of the dots allows you dabble in the trend or go all out.In this post I've shared my top polka dot picks - that you can nab online with just a few clicks (totally didn't intend that to rhyme!).

Chevron Wall Decal - Black and White It's tough being a renter at times. Sure, the invention of the 3M hook was possibly the most amazing moment of my decorating life, but it still left my love for wallpaper completely unrequited. Thankfully, the wall decal has arrived to make my interior dreams come true. And the ones in today's post can be nabbed right now.

Sarai Homewares - Cement Candle Holders1 | I had my socks rocked off this week when I got my hands on this amazing trio of concrete candle holders from Melbourne company Sarai Homewares. Available in a range of colours - including neon - these three holders are made and set in recycled moulds, which is all rather environmentally friendly! The company also stocks my other love - cushions - and more!

Distressed Coasters from Stone InspiredI've been through my fair share of coasters over the years. Not only because some of them fall apart, but because it's hard to hone in on a style that feels timeless as well as working from a practical perspective (a cork coaster is a one way ticket to Absorption City). I was a bit overcome when I got my hands on these bad boys from Stone Inspired, then - with a personalised gift inside just for me!

Freedom Top Ryde - Red and White CushionsFreedom and I have had a long friendship. I recall saving up across several paycheques as an 18 year old and going to Freedom to get my first real bedroom setting; an amazing bed, tallboy and two bedside tables combination. Years on (I won't divulge exactly how many) I still gravitate toward this homewares haven for the very same reasons I did back then; phenomenal furniture with form, function and fun. On with the store tour of Freedom Top Ryde...

Oz Design Moore ParkWhere does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it's been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn't look a day over 25!), in recent times it's multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
