I have severe style envy over the decor and furniture pieces in today's Real Room post. This space belongs to TLC reader Penny Sippe and what I love about it is that it truly reflects the people who live there. I always say that this is one of the most important elements of any home and this room nails it perfectly! Let's take a look at why this dining room works so well!

Nothing says 'Summer escape' quite like tropical decor does, and this edition of Real Rooms - featuring the gorgeous home of TLC reader Cathy Scullino - proves this perfectly. Decking out her cottage in the most marvellous coastal homewares and furniture, Cathy has created a space that not only looks amazing but feels cool and casual, too! Let's take a closer look.

Bright Bedroom with Colourful BeddingCathy Elsmore has earned enough frequent decor points to be considered an honorary Creative if you ask me; I’ve featured her work on the blog a few times because she’s a talented cookie with the guts to go all out with her decorating choices.

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!

You all responded so well to Cathy Elsmore's glorious

Eclectic Dining Room SpaceThis week's divine real room comes courtesy of Melody Rautio from Parkes in NSW, who tells me this eclectic dining room is used for more than just eating. Reading the Sunday paper and time on the laptop means that this eclectic area is a multi-purpose paradise. There are a number of reasons I'm going nutty for this dining room; it's safe to say that there's a lot to love!

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!

Outdoor Room - BBQ Area with Outdoor TableWords seem to fail me when it comes to describing just how in love I am with this Northbridge home. The indoors come out, the outdoors go in; it's a veritable hokey pokey of home design without putting your left leg in! There's something so spectacular about this space; form and function come together marvellously. Yes, that's where the magic starts for sure!
