You know I love showcasing the Real Rooms of readers, Creatives, and today's edition is a real show-stopper. Relaxed and casual, the living room of Laura Downie comes to life through its use of minimalistic design and unique furniture pieces. Let's take a closer look inside, shall we?
With my dream of renovating a space remaining just that for now (a dream), I’ve made the choice to live vicariously through other creatives doing the hard yards themselves! In this post I’m showcasing the reno of White Gold Boutique in Brissy; a space that went from corner store to chic salon in just three weeks!
It's safe to say that nothing will keep me away from my love of styling. When I was offered the chance to attend the Temple & Webster styling workshop at the International School of Colour and Design on Saturday, not even the wet and wild Sydney weather could hold me back. Not only did I walk away with the tools to complete my living room look, but I got to meet Temple & Webster superstar (and my personal interiors icons) Karen McCartney. Cue the crazy fan moment!
Self-confessed design nerd Emma Blomfield works not only as a stylist for her own company, Nest Designs, but as a homewares buyer too. “I see all the products before they are released to the stores, so I can see what trends are coming out”. Jealousy alert! I caught up with this very talented lady - and put my envy aside for just a moment - to learn more about her work, home style and the trends that make her heart race the most.
I first saw the lovely Miss Shaynna Blaze on Selling Houses Australia years ago and instantly fell in love with the woman (well, the kind of love a homewares-adoring gay lad can have for a woman). Years later, the interior decorating legend has released her very own book, Design Your Home. And true to form, it's practical, attainable and uniquely Shaynna B!
