Home and crafting queen Tara Dennis has outdone herself with the release of her new Water Drop range - and today on the blog I'm sharing my favourite pieces from this gorgeous homewares collection (and giving you the lowdown on where you can buy them!).

If your home needs a lift and tuck, it’s time you got a house call from the team at Resident GP. I spoke to these local Creatives about what makes their online store so special and why their homewares can cure any styling ailment. I also discovered that a trip to the doctor can be anything but scary!

Made by Hand BookGetting crafty doesn't come as natural to me as, say, styling a room would. I find I always need a bit of a push or some inspirational imagery to get me excited to whip out the sewing machine and give something a go. Thankfully Made by Hand by Lena Corwin hit my mailbox recently and did just that!

Marimekko TablewareIn my recent appearance in Real Living mag (check out the spread here), I mentioned that I would love to spend time with the design team at Marimekko. I thought it high time, then, that I show you some of their work in case you weren't familiar with the Finnish design powerhouse.

Brand new website The Design Keeper showcases unique homewares and fashion pieces with strong design elements and understated elegance.

Vintage Home Decor - Collectika in Sydney's Enmore

I tell you, moving to the inner west of Sydney has unlocked so many glorious discoveries. This week's adventures took me to an amazing vintage home decor store called Collectika, which features a breathtaking array of retro, vintage and contemporary furniture and homewares. It pretty much sums up my dream interior scheme; clean, quirky and with a generous nod to nostalgia.

Polka Dots in Decor - Wallpaper Inspiration from The Life CreativeI'm obsessed with polka dots and I'm not afraid to admit it. Personally I think they far surpass the fading fad of chevron and are far more classic than a stripe will ever be. Polka dots are fun without being too juvenile - and the size of the dots allows you dabble in the trend or go all out.In this post I've shared my top polka dot picks - that you can nab online with just a few clicks (totally didn't intend that to rhyme!).
