Prints are becoming such a powerful feature within your home. Whether it be by displaying letters, a collection of prints, your favourite passage from a book there are so many ways we can personalise these for our own homes and families.
Be bold, be creative and trust your gut in selecting the right images for you and you can't go wrong. HERx
Designed by Gilles et Boissier this Paris apartment celebrates the best combination of period drama and modern classics and trends.
I love the simplicity of leaning the art against the wall rather than hanging, it is some how elegant and airy. It's also a great way of leaving it open for change, obtaining new art or changing the focal point within the room. Our favourites will often change, even our tastes, by embracing design tools like this we allow for this flow to become more fluid and even broaden our own creativity with the endless possibilities.

Mark Shaw was an iconic fashion and celebrity photographer in the 50s and 60s. I love so many of his photos, whether fashion or portraits, they always capture energy, grace, beauty, timelessness and emotion.
These photos are one of my favourites he took of the Kennedy Family in the Hamptons, they capture such simple family beauty.
This week is the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy's death. I know I've already seen way too many images of that fateful day in his life this week alone, instead this is how I would prefer to picture both him and his family. HERx
Here are a few snaps from our recent holiday to Hamilton Island and Port Douglas, Australia. It is such a beautiful part of the world, I feel truly lucky to live in such a beautiful country. HERx
Hello All!! Well after a good break up in paradise, I'm very slowly returning back to the world and functional thought (...slowly...)
Melbourne based retailer and designer John Parker's home is such a fun, refreshing and lively way to snap us back into life! The colour and personality within his home would keep me smiling every day, but it does this without loosing any of its style and design standards at all along the way.
The combinations of styles and materials within this space is superb, don't be afraid to try this within your home! As a simple guide, try by ensuring that a single design feature, colour or texture from one piece of furniture coordinates in one way with the next piece of furniture/art and so on around the room until you return back to the first item again. Good Luck! HER
Hello Lovelies, this is just a quick note to let you all know I'm taking a short break from posting on the blog over the next couple of weeks while I'm away on holiday. I will be posting occasionally during this time on both Instagram and Facebook, so I won't be far. Talk soon! HERx
After a conversation this morning about prints and trends I thought it was interesting that this new Burburry Prorsum collection came up in my email! Although this may be considered on the lighter side of print on print styling, I believe this is such a strong collection featuring bold and contrasting prints, textures, fabric and finishes captured harmoniously together within this editorial by Ssense, named Check Mate.
The subtle androgyny of the styling is very clever and ties the gender looks together brilliantly. It has also drawn my eye down through the range highlighting the similarities in the two ranges, for example the slight styling differences in the two leopard jackets. HER.
I really do enjoy this style of décor. It's clean and crisp with thoughtful warmth and personality. To me there is nothing better than a space where you not only feel calm and comfortable but where you can burry yourself in furs, warm chunky knits and piles of pillows while admiring natural or unique imperfections like a timber coffee table or that ridiculous photo of you with your friends at the beach. Although it is hardly achieved without thoughtful design and styling, a space is often more than this, it becomes the feeling and emotion you feel when your spending time within the space. The relaxation of your shoulders, and the smile that subtly comes across your face as you enter the room. This is perfection and the true test of interior design and styling. HER
