If you’re a bit addicted to home reno and makeover shows like I am, you’d have watched the stack of UK series’ they play on Foxtel. Grand Designs, Property Ladder, Double Your Home and Location, Location, Location (just to name a few, of course).
The one thing I notice the homes have in these shows time and time again is the wall-mounted heating systems in living areas and heated towel rails in bathrooms. And I always wondered why we didn’t have these in Australia. Turns out, thanks to Bosch, we do.
Granted, I never normally find myself getting giddy over gadgets, but when I found out there are sexy power points containing USB ports - so you can transform pockets of your home into little recharge centres - my interior antennas went off and I couldn't help but spread the word!
I’ve become a bit captivated by Kim Leutwyler art. Not only are the styles so varied, but the range of surfaces you can spread them across is pretty amazing, too; prints, cards, mugs, cushions, clocks, iPhone cases and more. It’s a union between art and homewares that is an undeniable match made in heaven!

It was, in fact, six months ago, and boy has she been a busy gal between then and now! The creative mastermind has gone from producing geometric stationery to launching a full-blown, breathtaking range of cushions and phone covers. They're all stamped with her signature style, of course, and I for one am going a bit gaga over them. Alert the authorities: I am about to swoon!
If there's a homewares store that's not stocking neon decor at the moment, I certainly haven't come across it. This fantastic fad is trending hard and with good reason; it's a great way to inject some wow factor to an otherwise so-so colour scheme. Shall we have a look at some successful neon decorating ideas and where you can get them? Yes, we shall!
