If kicking back on your own luxury banana lounge with a cocktail in hand sounds like your kinda thing, you need to get all over the reinvented InterContinental Hotel in Sydney's Double Bay. With a rooftop deck overlooking the harbour and some other very sophisticated inclusions planned for the redevelopment, it's set to be the city's new go-to destination for relaxation and grandeur.

Last week I gave you a look into OZ Design's new furniture range, which is split into four glorious collections; Arthouse, Coast, Abode and Global. This week, we're going to delve further into the Arthouse collection (my favourite of the four), plus I'll show you how you can work the pieces into your own home with ease!

Crashmat -Orange_Circles_CM_Orange_BubbleNow that Easter is behind us, it's time to focus your attention on Mother's Day, Creatives! Today's post is showcasing a must-have gift idea that'll change the way Mum lives - for real (and this is one you might even buy for yourself!).

100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life by Jonathan AdlerIf my mother told me tomorrow that I was adopted, I think I'd book a redeye flight to New York to declare myself Jonathan Adler's brother. We seem to share the same adoration of colour, a love of quirk, a fondness of humour and a partiality to a scatter cushion or seven. It's in his latest release - 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life - he cements himself as my ultimate go-to guy for out-of-the-box home decor inspiration. So, we may not be brothers, but we are at the very least cut from the same cross-stitch!

Distressed Coasters from Stone InspiredI've been through my fair share of coasters over the years. Not only because some of them fall apart, but because it's hard to hone in on a style that feels timeless as well as working from a practical perspective (a cork coaster is a one way ticket to Absorption City). I was a bit overcome when I got my hands on these bad boys from Stone Inspired, then - with a personalised gift inside just for me!

Temple & Webster Head of Styling Jessica BellefI'd always known that styling a photo shoot wasn't easy, but it wasn't until I hit Temple & Webster HQ a few weeks back and saw the team in action that I realised just how laborious it can be. I sat down with T&W's Head of Styling, Jessica Bellef, to get the scoop on what she and Senior Stylist Adam Powell deal with daily when they're putting together their glorious homewares shoots.

Abigail Ahern's Decorating with StyleAlert the presses, Creatives; I have been converted! Once a lover of all things light and bright in interiors (you know, sunshine and lollipops, a place where it's always spring), this release from style maven Abigail Ahern has given me a wondrous appreciate of interiors with mood. The pictures within this release are somewhat dark, very alluring and quite unlike anything I've  laid eyes upon in an interiors book (and you know I have many).
