Love the look of vintage furniture but not sure how to style it at home, if you should upcycle it to give it a new lease on life, or whether to leave it well enough alone? TLC has called in the expert to give you the lowdown, in this comprehensive vintage furniture guide. 

I love me some local talent, Creatives (you know that), and since moving to Melbourne a few months back I've slowly been immersing myself in all of the homewares and furniture goodness down here - and boy does Melbs know how to rock design. Sorry Sydney.

I buy and replace homewares like there's no tomorrow, and it's only recently that I've tried to take stock of the environmental impact that must have. You know me, Creatives; I love to bag a decor bargain and I love to update the look of my abode. But I do wonder what that means in the bigger scheme of things.

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!

Oz Design Moore ParkWhere does one start when it comes to describing Oz Design? While it's been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn't look a day over 25!), in recent times it's multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
