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.It could be a tree you pass on the way to work, a piece of jewellery you wear all the time, an old bowl you have at home, or in my case - random moments I see when I'm out running. And sometimes you're not sure why these moments appeal to you, or why they move you, but they do.
It's a well-known fact that I don't get very creative in the kitchen. I leave those culinary adventures to my partner Gavin, who in return generally lets me have my run of the house when it comes to decorating (apart from that time he put me on a cushion ban).When it comes to baking or cocktails, though, you can bet your bottom dollar that I want in on the fun.
The fruity homewares and stationery craze refuses to go away - which is probably a good thing considering I adore the tropical colour story this aesthetic brings to a space. Although I did declare a short while ago that ceramic pineapples are officially over, I never threw all fruits under the bus - and I think they're divine in many respects.
Last week I had the pleasure of jetting down to Melbourne to take in the wonder of the Cotton On Group Christmas preview. As the mother biz of Cotton On, Cotton on Kids, Typo and more, the company hosted an extravaganza of decor goodness. It would be criminal of me not to show you the best bits from Cotton On Kids. And trust me, adults, when I say that you'll want this stuff for your own space!
