There’s simply no denying the fact that I’m a bit obsessed with colour. Yes, I understand and have even posted about the fact that beige can be beautiful - and I fully appreciate the swoon-worthy qualities that a Scandi scheme possesses. But for me, dear Creatives, it’s all about a high-intensity hues. You can see why I was delighted to feast my eyes on these Terracotta Treasures then (or what some might call ceramic pineapples!).
To 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?).

When 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.

So I only recently realised I have a fair few bird ornaments about the place. I also realised I had named a few of them. Call it sick and twisted but it's a reality. I've also snapped a lot of them in homewares stores. Am I following them or are they following me? Who knows. Check out my feathered collection...
