Pink and gold is a colour combination that's been sprouting up a bit lately and coming into spring I think it's a pairing that could just rock your world. With the addition of white, it's a design menage a trois that screams soft, feminine luxe. Here are some homewares in this colour scheme that I'm currently going gaga over - that I'm pretty sure you might find a bit tantalising, too!
I've fallen in love with Pete Cromer art. I have butterflies in my stomach, I don't want to eat in front of it and I get giddy when it sends me a text message. It's definitely love. Today on the blog I'm showcasing some stunning pieces from this Melbourne artist - and trust me when I say they're nothing short of extraordinary!
I love bold decor that makes a statement and hexagon homewares really play up the drama. Edgier than a round shape but more relaxed than a square, hexagons are hot to trot! Here are 10 hexagonal homewares finds you're going to fall hard for, from lamps to cushions and everything in between.

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 it's one thing Mumma Creative has been telling me for years, it's that brights and whites don't mix. While this is of course true when it comes to washing your clothes (if I find one more pink shirt!) the same cannot be said for home decor.
Freedom and I have had a long friendship. I recall saving up across several paycheques as an 18 year old and going to Freedom to get my first real bedroom setting; an amazing bed, tallboy and two bedside tables combination. Years on (I won't divulge exactly how many) I still gravitate toward this homewares haven for the very same reasons I did back then; phenomenal furniture with form, function and fun. On with the store tour of Freedom Top Ryde...
I first saw the lovely Miss Shaynna Blaze on Selling Houses Australia years ago and instantly fell in love with the woman (well, the kind of love a homewares-adoring gay lad can have for a woman). Years later, the interior decorating legend has released her very own book, Design Your Home. And true to form, it's practical, attainable and uniquely Shaynna B!
