I have severe style envy over the decor and furniture pieces in today's Real Room post. This space belongs to TLC reader Penny Sippe and what I love about it is that it truly reflects the people who live there. I always say that this is one of the most important elements of any home and this room nails it perfectly! Let's take a look at why this dining room works so well!

French Ornate Interior - Country Home Ideas MagIt's no secret that I love colour. Sometimes, though, I can't help but be seduced by the subdued palette French interiors are know for. The images in this post are so captivating that even the most diehard colour lovers would go weak at the knees over them. They're all contained in the new issue of Country Home Ideas magazine - and I can't get enough!

Cheryl Pryce's Bedroom SanctuaryTo kick off The Life Creative's Real Rooms, I thought it was patriotic that we started in the nations capital. This charming bedroom sanctuary belongs to Canberra native Cheryl Pryce; a public servant who is about to embark on an interior design course (is there any better course?). Sharing the 1970's townhouse with her daughter, two dogs and two cats, Cheryl's spent the last six weeks recovering from a car accident, which is why this bedroom has become so vital.

Pendant Lighting in Papaya MosmanWhen the team from Papaya invited me for an exclusive tour of their Mosman store last week, it's safe to say I was a little beside myself. I've been a longtime fan of the brand, always rather fond of their contemporary designs and use of raw materials. When I stepped into the interior of this North Sydney oasis, it was like being transported into another universe, where I lost my mind in the best way possible and am not certain I have it back yet.

Opus Design Co Paddington Store WindowYou know you're a home decor addict when your friends send you pictures of the inside of homewares stores, saying "you have to check out this place". That's exactly what happened with Opus Design Co; my friend Jess shot me a photo of the inside of the store via her iPhone and as soon as I got the chance I ran in there to take it all in. It's like a decorative rainbow exploded, in the most awe-inspiring way possible!
