A TLC reader emailed me recently asking for some tips on how to style her dining table. It wasn’t until I read the email that I remembered I used to have issues doing this in my own home many moons ago, too. The dining table is a little…
Event styling – especially for a wedding – can be a tricky task. There’s not only the event itself to decorate but invites, presents and a host of other potential headaches to consider. Worry no more, creatives, because I’m sharing my top 10 bridal and event-inspired finds over on the Hitched Magazine blog this month, which might just give you a few glorious event styling ideas for your own big day!
1 | I celebrated the blog turning a year old this week gone by and it was a lovely surprise to have these flowers from Garlands Florist turn up on my doorstep. They’re a true Creative Find if I ever saw one. My partner had organised them to be delivered with a little congrats card. It was certainly a warm and fuzzy moment (I do have a keeper here!). And on the note of birthday celebrations – don’t forget to enter this week’s competition!
I love me a good styling workshop; a glorious one-day event where I can walk out with a new-found confidence in a particular craft. Freedom is hosting four such events across November and December in their new and improved Moore Park store. The sessions are going to equip you with some fab new skills (think Christmas table settings, gift wrapping, terrariums and more).
At this very moment, I’ve pressed 00 on the phone and am about to press the final 0 to get the ambulance to my home; these images of the goods available at Temple & Webster’s Handmade Market are positively heart racing! This long weekend, the online homewares haven will present their second Handmade Markets Event in partnership with Jacqui Fink of Little Dandelion and I am going bananas over the entire scenario!
I think I need to rename Real Rooms to ‘Rooms that Make me Weep with Joy’. This latest instalment, which belongs to graphic designer Amber Stapff, is a Scandi wonderland with a minimalistic and calming vibe. You can totally see the designer at play in this space. And I have to admit, it’s making me question my love of colour (please do not tell colour I said that!).
I’ve never really understood homes that are styled within an inch of their lives and manage to say nothing about the people who live there. At TLC HQ, it’s all about personalisation, comfort and reflecting who I am and what’s happening in my life. In saying that, though, I do like things to have their place (and certain objects are not for the curious claws of the satanic sisters that are better know as my two cats). Enter this glorious find from Papaya!
The Sydney CBD is inundated with places to eat and bars to drink at, but what’s been missing for quite a while is the presence of boutique stores you usually find scattered about the Eastern Suburbs (or down in Melbourne, for that matter). Things changed very recently when The Aparttment opened its doors, giving city dwellers the chance to immerse themselves in one-of-a-kind clothing, homewares, art and accessories. Brace yourselves, Creatives, this one’s a goodie!
I first came across Terrace Outdoor Living courtesy of their pop-up store at the Supa Centre Moore Park. I was a little saddened to hear they were closing down until I realised their flagship store in Woollahra housed everything that their pop-up store did – and then some! I took to this Eastern Suburbs haven for all this green and outdoors and snapped my fave pieces!
