• Top 4 Full Length Mirrors

    My apartment gets an amazing amount of natural light, its one of the best things about it actually. Recently, due to series of mishaps I recently found myself with a giant shard of broken mirror in my living room. (Long story short, I should stop attempting to fix things on my own… ) While waiting for an opportunity to dispose of the aforementioned shard of broken mirror it sat in our living room for roughly a week. During this period, I realised that even with so much natural light in my apartment having a mirror in the space opened everything up so much. I had never considered buying a full…

  • 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…

  • Style Your Coffee Table for $100 or less!

    How do you like your coffee table? Styled to perfection with your immaculate stack of designer books and one strategically placed peacock feather? Or do you keep it simple with just your favourite candle burning? Everyone does it differently… Having a beautifully styled coffee table doesn’t mean having to go to a great expense with one-off designer sculptures to adorn the centre-piece of your living room (although that would be nice wouldn’t it?). The secret is pulling together pieces that complement each other in an understated way. There are a few secrets to coffee table styling that feel very obvious but can’t be tricky to achieve in real life.  Today on Interiors…

  • A guide to second-hand shopping | Gumtree Edition 

    I’m not 100% sure if you’ve noticed yet or not but… I love Gumtree. The majority of my most loved possessions were purchased on Gumtree, including some AHmazing lamp shades that I bought a few days ago. The lovely old French lady told me the French word for the pattern on the lamp shade and it made me very happy (the fact that they we’re $10 each also made me very happy). I’m very open about the fact that I shop second-hand on Gumtree regularly and I often get asked “What did you search for?” or “How did you even find this!?”. Well, today I’m here to open up the…

  • All the vintage I didn’t buy…. plus one thing I did!

    It’s absolutely no secret that I love vintage shopping. It could be vintage homewares, furniture or clothing but give me a good second-hand shop to rummage through and I’m a happy gal. I recently visited one of my favourite vintage spots in Sydney, Lunatiques and had a great time visualising all the strange and wonderful things in my space. So, in celebration of all things vintage and amazing I’m taking you on a journey of all the vintage I didn’t buy… plus one special piece I did indulge in. No 1. Vintage Brass Floor Lamp     Okay… I’m having non-buyers remorse… I kinda want to go back and buy…

  • 8 Furniture Picks For The Ultimate Budget-Friendly Living Room!

    As a very experienced “bargain shopper”, I feel I have the insight and the ‘know-how’ to really do this round-up justice. Some might say that you can’t achieve a ‘designed’ look in your living room on such a tight budget but I challenge them to keep reading this post because I plan to: Prove. Them. Wrong! Your first step is to give yourself a realistic budget, somewhere in the realm of a) will be able to continue buying groceries for the next month and b) can’t buy a refill of your $100 foundation. It’s important to invest as much money as you can into your new furniture now so that…

  • How I Chose My Dining Room Setting

    Boy, how I’ve been struggling.  A little while ago I replaced my $40 second-hand vintage dining table with one of a more “grown up” variety. I bought that gumtree when I first moved out of home and I’ve always adored it. However, I had a lovely new table on the way that I was very excited about. My new “grown up” dining table needed some “grown up” chairs to go with it. The dining chairs I had did go well colour-wise with the new dining table but they were a bit small and felt like they would float away if I didn’t anchor them down.  Naturally, my instinctual go-to for…

  • Interiors Girl Gets an Upright Piano

    I swear that this newly added piano is not purely for decoration (although, honestly I wouldn’t put it past me). Dylan and I have been loosely talking about adding a piano to the space – he’s a musician and does play from time to time (currently, he plays it all day every day but I’m hoping the novelty wears off soon). Recently, I’ve been having a little bit of a furniture cull and selling some of the pieces in the apartment space that aren’t super functional. As a result I’d been left with a bit of an empty wall… and you know how I feel about empty walls!      Initially I was thinking…

  • Top 9 Cute Bathroom Decor Ideas under $150!

    Your bathroom is supposed to be a space where you’re relaxed and feel renewed, all of the lovely & cuddly feelings… but my bathroom makes me feel plain bad.     Living in a rental apartment, one of the spaces that’s really hard to spruce into a luxurious place I’d be comfortable to spend an hour or so bathing is the bathroom. From the not-so-nice green tiles to the sketchy looking glass partition, my bathroom leaves a lot to be desired.     It’s time for this to change!! Seeing as I can’t/ don’t particularly want to completely demolish my bathroom and start over the next best thing is: cute…

  • 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…
