• 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…

  • My Favourite Sugar free, Dairy Free & Gluten Free Waffles!

    There’s something you may not know about me… Along with my many, many addictions, I have a problem with compulsive sugar consumption. I’ve had this problem for a very very long time so when my boyfriend and I made a pact to give up sugar about a year ago its needless to say that I was very worried. One of the ways that we combat our sugar withdrawals is with regular fun (but healthy) weekend breakfast indulgence. Our fun weekend breakfast usually consists of pancakes or sometimes bacon and eggs but my favourite menu appearance is… WAFFLES! I’ve pieced this recipe together from various waffle recipes and adjusted it based…

  • My Top ASOS Home Picks!

    I may or may not be a shopaholic, but what I do know is that I am very very familiar with the online retailer ASOS. What’s more exciting that scrolling through endless pages of clothes and hair clips on ASOS? Picking up a super cute vase while you’re at it, maybe! Yes, that’s right ASOS has just launched their homewares range. Now, I’ve had a good scroll through every single item and admittedly, I do have a cart full of things waiting for me to bite the bullet on. In celebration of how much more amazing the internet just got, I’m listing out my top 5 ASOS Home picks for…

  • Best Laptop Bags!

    New year, new you! I don’t know about you but my laptop is well and truly PART of me. I rarely go without it, lucky he’s pretty light these days. I do however need to protect him which is hard because 900% of laptop bags & covers are fuuuuuugly. A laptop bag needs to be durable (I feel sorry for it sometimes when I’m dragging it in and out of my car constantly), it needs to have a little bit of extra storage (for snacks, obviously) and of course it needs to be cute but neutral enough that it goes with a vast array of outfits. My fashion sense can…

  • My Fav Interiors Magazines & Why

    There’s nothing quite like the luxury of taking the time to peruse through the magazine section of your newsagent, taking something home and THEN putting aside the time to flip through and even read articles on breathtaking, amazing interiors. It doesn’t happen that often, but when it does… I make sure to flip through the whole magazine once very excitedly taking in the pretty pictures as quickly as possible, then I take the more methodical approach of analysing which articles to read and enjoying that peace and quiet while soaking it all in. I’ve fine-tuned my interiors magazine taste over the years, some old pals have been forgotten and some…

  • Shop My Living Room! (part 2)

    Phew! Finally. That week between posts really goes slowly doesn’t it? Are you ready for part 2 of Shop My Living Room? I know, you’re excited. Last week we covered my sofa, coffee table & my rug. Let’s get stuck into the rest of my living room! Armchair! | My sofa and armchair are good friends, since they’re made by the same company Timothy Oulton. The shape of this chair is perfect, it just hugs you nice and close while having a small footprint (an essential quality when living in an apartment). I chose to have this made in a chunky grey linen that has a cool blue-ish hue to…

  • Shop My Living Room! (part 1)

    Okay, its taken a whole year and a half but I think we’re there. Where’s there? Oh, its a point where I feel content with the level of “finished” that my living room is currently at. Keep in mind however, “finished” is an unattainable status but we’re as good as there right now. So finally I’m ready to give you a run down on my living room pieces and where you can buy the same or similar to the items I’ve got (incase you’re feeling anything particular, trust me you will). The Sofa! | Okay, I’m going big to start off. This piece is the first and only ever leather…

  • Interiors Girl’s Christmas Gift Guide!

    Okay it’s time to get serious…. Serious about spending your hard earned cash on the people who you love, who love homewares and all things interiors. Obviously if you find something YOU love, you can justify buying a lil’ something for yourself – it’s just a small insurance that you’ll get something you really want this year. Homewares items are such a great gift for anybody interiors-inclined, all you need is a rough idea of their style and that cute little vase they keep on their shelf will be a reminder for many years to come of your great gift buying ability. As a self-confessed interiors obsessed human, I can…

  • Artist Highlight: Jess Olding

    Ugh okay obviously I don’t need to buy any more art for my apartment..  But that doesn’t mean I can’t admire things from afar, right? One thing (or person) that I’ve been admiring from afar for a little while now is Jess Olding. Jess is an Australian still life painter who’s work is down right lust-worthy. Australian native flowers are one of her more frequent subjects which absolutely appeals to the likes of me.  There’s something slightly vintage about the feeling of her paintings, making them feel like they always existed. This vintage-feel is also probably something to do with the framing that she pictures her artworks in. I love,…
