I've always known there was something super stylin' about the people of Melbourne - and these shots from TLC reader Mia Young proves it. Her Cranbourne East home, purchased three years ago, is a mix of sleek teak and pops of punchy colour (and I couldn't be more smitten with it if I tried).
I thought it high time we have a little fun on TLC as we near the end of the week - and put some of my fave girl group into interior design. On the blog today are five fabulous interiors, with a little Spice Girl flavour present in each. The question is, which Spice room are you? Take a look and make your choice known in the comments below.
I wouldn't have believed I'd ever be posting about my love of floral decor on the blog. I've always been a graphic, geometric kinda guy when it comes to pattern. The time has come for me to admit defeat, though. Because florals are back - and they're not the gaudy, nanna-inspired designs I've had nightmares about in the past. Let's explore this rebirth further!
Even with my colour obsession firmly intact, I can still fully appreciate the subdued nature of beige decor and a neutral interiors palette. That said, if you're looking for some ideas to spice up your space without going colour crazy, this post will show you how to do it. Beige is never boring, of course, but sometimes, it needs a little colour nudge.
I love quirky art and this week's Real Room features just that; an eclectic living space that embraces interesting art. Not only that, it embraces casual furniture while giving a generous nod to craftiness. It's the home of Canberra Creative Jenna Bain, who like me admits to finding editing a challenge in her home when it's filled with so many much-loved pieces. She also admits that not everything in her space matches perfectly, which I think is what makes this room so good!
Juliet Morris' colourful kitchen diner space caught my attention for a few reasons. Yes, the fully stocked bar was one of them, but the punches of colour were also a drawcard. Having lived in this Curtin home with her husband Clive and two children for ten years, Juliet is a clear lover of high voltage hue, allowing her pieces to pop by pairing them with a black and white base.
