Steve Cordony on The Life CreativeDespite working with names like Yves Saint Laurent, Armani and Ralph Lauren, you've probably seen the work of Steve Cordony most on the pages of Belle magazine, where he's interior design editor. I sat down to put Steve through The Creative 10 - and uncovered his love for New York, his iPad and Beyonce!

March 2014 Real Living Cover - The Life CreativeThere's really no slow way to ease into this week's most fabulous news. So let's just jump right in; I'm in the new issue of Real Living magazine! Sharing the story of my design journey at the International School of Colour + Design, this full-page spread has me pinching myself - and also gives a glorious shot-out to my work on this little baby, The Life Creative!

The LIfe Creative - Johanna Gtiggs InterviewJohanna Griggs is the undeniable darling of Australian TV (and a busy woman, I might add). Not only does she host Better Homes & Gardens, she also heads up one of my fave shows, House Rules, and carries out a slew of radio and other TV work. In this interview, I delve into what inspires her creatively, where she goes to recharge and her addiction to homewares store Temple & Webster!

Inside Out Magazine Editor in Chief Claire BradleyAs Editor-in-Chief of home and interiors mag Inside Out, the darling Claire Bradley is exposed to a plethora of creative inspiration from artistic people, their places and the products they produce. But what gets her creative juices flowing outside of the magazine? In this week’s Creative 10, I found out just that!

The Creative 10 Interview - Deb Bibby from Real Living MagazineAs the undeniable majesty of magazines, Deb Bibby has been at the helm of one of my fave homewares publications, real living, since its inception back in 2005 (time flies when you're setting trends!). I scored some time from this lovely lady in my new segment, The Creative 10, to get some insight into her creative world, who she admires and what inspires her.

Bentwood Dining Chair from B Seated GlobalThere’s something so historic and exquisite about a Bentwood Chair. You see them just about everywhere - in cafes, bars, restaurants and homes - and thankfully nowadays, you can nab them in a variety of colours and styles (you know I love me some colourful furniture!).

Some weeks in blog land are slow, while others - like the one I just experienced - are as mad as ever. This week saw The Life Creative pop up all over the internet; in magazines, on other blogs and in email blasts. It's an exciting moment for a blogger like me - and does mean that the industry is starting to recognise your efforts (praise the Lord!).[line]Chris Carroll - The Life Creative - Adore Home Magazine

Sydney Flower School - Flower Class Bouquet For Judith and Kylie Browne, the Mother-Daughter team behind the glorious Sydney Flower School (which is holding Christmas wreath-making classes this month!), working together only has one downside: distraction. "We might like to chit chat," Kylie tells me. "We like to call it brainstorming. Before we know it we may have lost an hour (or even an afternoon!)".

Sonia Stackhouse Life Love and Hiccups InterviewIf it’s one blog I turn to for a good chuckle, it’s Life Love and Hiccups; the work of Sydney-sider Sonia Stackhouse, whose love of online shopping and vodka strikes a real chord with my liver. A mum and wife who celebrates both the triumphs and hiccups in life, I simply had to take five with this lovely lady for my most hilarious interview yet. We discuss everything from picking a favourite child, pitching a show to Foxtel and taking out Tara Dennis.
