• Top 4 Design Tips For Your Kitchen Renovation

    Where do you spend the majority of your time when you’re at home? I don’t know about you but of an evening, my waking hours are mostly spent in the kitchen. I’m preparing dinner while simultaneously 20% of my brain is watching the news, another 30% of my brain is thinking about work and another 10% is wishing the cat would realise there’s no second dinner happening tonight (for him at least). It turns out, most of my clients are the same and the kitchen is the number one priority space when thinking about renovating their home. As a result, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about kitchens and…

  • DIY Bedhead Re-upholstery

    Okay, so as a human I too make mistakes… even interior design related mistakes. I know – it’s hard to believe but it’s true. I too can get carried away from time to time and make a rushed interiors purchase when faced with the horrible possibility of missing out on a bargain. I had grand plans of purchasing a new bed, upholstered in a black and white gingham fabric. It was going to be very cosy and refined. As I was scheming and planning, I happened to attend the Coco Republic warehouse sale and was greeted by a lovely check/tartan bedhead in teal/beige colours. I have to say, I did…

  • Ikea Desk Tile DIY Re-Vamp!

    Hellooooooo 2020! Okay yes, it’s already February… In my defence, I have only just now accepted that my Christmas holidays are over and we’re into real life again. I know, that sounds depressing but real life means interiors girl is getting back into her interiors groove and I’ve got a whole year of it coming at you. I’m starting this year with a BANG and this “bang” comes in the form of a DIY! Yes, I’m taking you on the journey of my Ikea desk tile DIY revamp. The story of this desk begins with the re-purpose of my spare bedroom, it’s been sitting there empty for quite a while.…

  • Easy Peasy DIY Kitchen Shelf!

    How the times have changed recently… The kitchen used to be my least favourite space in my apartment, but I’ve been focusing a lot of attention lately on making this space feel just as lovely as the rest of my home. My latest project is a testament to how something so small can do just that! Installing a floating shelf above my kitchen sink has been one of those things that’s been on my to-do list for a seriously long time but never felt inspired to get it done, until now! I did a little bit of research into floating shelves and which one to buy. The walls in my…

  • Rental kitchen Flooring Re-vamp DIY!

    It’s time for me to confess… I’ve been hiding something from you. I’ve been avoiding this for some time now. Literally, I’ve been physically avoiding my kitchen since I moved into this apartment. The main feature of the kitchen that upset me so so much was the absolutely hideous vomit green vinyl floor that has surprisingly seen better days. For the last year or so I’ve been fantasising about what life would be like if I owned this apartment and all the things I’d be able to do to it without fear of repercussion. Until recently during my yearly house inspection with the real estate agent, I suddenly found the…

  • DIY Christmas Wrapping!

    I can be SO lazy. I know, surprising right? I even surprise myself with my own laziness sometimes… and that’s exactly what I did this Christmas. I did (almost) all of my Christmas shopping in 1 late-night shopping trip. It was edging towards 9pm and I was really impressed with myself but also really exhausted. I wanted to be FINISHED. All I needed to complete my shopping expedition was wrapping paper and Christmas cards… onwards to Daiso I head. I picked up the least offensive paper & card designs I could, paid my $5.60 to the cashier, got in my car and went home (finally). The following week I wrapped…

  • Dream Balcony Decor Round-Up!

    I know your balcony is looking lush and summery right now thanks to my DIY faux lawn post last week. You’ve already spent extra time out there, sipping some sort of fancy cocktail instead of just folding laundry like you used to. There’s only 1 thing wrong with this picture though… you’re lacking in the fun decor and furniture department! Outdoor furniture can range from cheap and nasty to crazy expensive and it’s not super fun trawling through all that 90’s brown woven blergh on gumtree. I know why those people don’t want it anymore… cause its chunky and uuuuuugly. I’m on the look-out for a nice and affordable apartment-living-appropriate…

  • My DIY balcony makeover

    Nothing. That’s what I’ve enjoyed so far on my balcony. Okay… that’s a lie. I’ve enjoyed the satisfying feeling of retrieving dry laundry after a good sunny day. But that’s it…. Until now! Something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while is to give my balcony a little makeover, a burst of energy to entice activities such as reading, drinking, eating and even working. There are so many outdoor activities that I’ve been missing out on! The main event of this makeover is the installation of a faux lawn. This will give my balcony a lovely lush softness that can’t be replicated in any other way. It’s going…

  • DIY Paper Daisy Art

    Due to all of the recent rainy weather here in Sydney, I’ve had a generous amount of inside time available to me. “What does inside time mean?” You ask… Inside Time = Crafty Time! Yes, Interiors Girl is getting crafty today and I’m pretty happy with the crafty results so I’m sharing a step-to-step for creating my DIY Paper Daisy Art. Originally, I purchased this bouquet of paper daisies simply for display in a lovely vase on my lovely buffet. This dream quickly fell apart when my flowers began to droop in what seemed like seconds. I had the bright idea of drying out my paper daisies (they’re a great…

  • My Retro Bedside Table Refurb, Part 2

    I know, I left you all in suspense in My Retro Bedside Table Refurb Part 1. In my defence, you guys got a chance to really think about that preparation process which is so so so important to a successful DIY result. I’m not going to make you wait any longer though, here is My Retro Bedside Table Refurb Part 2: Finishing! Yay! (As per usual, if you haven’t read Part 1 to this blog post, then go back and read it – this will just make zero sense if you don’t)     Step 4: Paaaaaaainting! I did a lot of research into choosing the correct paint for this…
