African Decor - Bedhead and Cushions with LampsFor lovers of a soft and subdued decor scheme that offers interest through texture rather than tone, the eclectic African decor vibe had you covered. This interiors trend is all about utilising materials in a way that makes a space sophisticated and stylish, creating a room that feels calm and carefully curated (and on a side note, how dreamy is that bedhead?!).

Quirky Art from Jenna Bain's Living HomeI 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!

Parterre in Woollahra - Outdoor GardenI don't quite know how to describe Parterre other than to say it's quite magical and enchanting. I've driven past it a few times and also been into the store on the odd occasion and am constantly blown away by how gloriously French-inspired their world is. Set over two levels with a majestic outdoor space, this Woollahra wonderland is a must-see for locals who love quality, old-world wares. And for those of you who aren't in Sydney, take a virtual tour here!

Combined Kitchen and DiningGranted, Creatives, I've not heard of Saratoga on the NSW Central Coast - but I'm ready to book my train ticket (or chopper flight) ASAP if it means I get to soak up the sun in this combined kitchen and dining room. Belonging to Creative Jill Sparrow, this three-bedroom home is a sun-lovers dream and is decked out with some stunning pieces that make me want to grab at my chest; reminiscent of a daytime soap character when their beau comes back from the grave!

High Tea at The Home Spring LaunchSometimes you see decor that makes your heart skip a beat (and leaves you wondering how far away the medics are should you need resuscitation). This scenario happened to me when I attended TheHome Spring Launch yesterday. The Gazebo Wine Garden was the venue for this afternoon high tea and the styling work from Marj Silva (below), Emma Blomfield and the team at TheHome was truly something spectacular.
