Master Bedroom

Hello everyone! Thank goodness Monday is over!!!! Four more days to the weekend!

Posting a few pictures of our master bedroom which is also a work in progress. The weather is crazy hot in Melbourne and the winter quilt was too much to bear. So I bought this coverlet today from the Manchester Clearance Store on Burgundy Street, Heidelberg at a great price!!! They sell stock overruns at reasonable prices. You are sure to find a good deal there! All my quilt covers and bed spreads are from there too. They have the most amazing designs though I lean more towards the whites and natural palettes.


The vision I have is to create a sanctuary, somewhere peaceful calm and beautiful to de-stress in. I want a stylish but shabby chic theme to it. Have to keep working on it I guess. I keep adding bit by bit instead of doing it up at once. The foundations have been set now its time to keep building!


I still have to find a way to hide the wires under the bedside tables! And also maybe paint or wall paper the wall behind the bed, not sure though, I kind of like white walls. It gives me a blank canvas to play around with. Hmmmm have to have a think about that one!



The frames above the bed are from a shop called Interior Design Outlet. I was thrilled when I found them. The frames matched perfectly with the bed.


This weekend I'm planning on tackling the dressing table! Will take some pictures during the day.


We are planning on changing the ceiling light. Not sure what to get. The light came with the house and I'm not quite sure that it goes with the room anymore. The throw is from IKEA! I love throws and throw pillows!


Will keep you posted on our progress! If you guys have any suggestions, leave me a comment.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Decorating with twigs and branches

I'm so into dry branches right now. Ok that sounded weird! But, its easy and not to mention "free" to decorate with them and they look so aesthetically appealing against a white backdrop.

So the story goes.....we had a tree in the backyard that split and had to be taken down. We stored it in the garage for it to dry out for a few days and then cut the branches off and took the dry leaves off.

It takes a few tries to get it looking the way you want it to. I'm still discovering what my look is, but for the moment I'm happy with the way this looks.

It works kinda well with the chippy ol' rose vase don't you think?!






Have fun decorating!

Cane chair makeover


Had a cute cane chair in the study where it was being completely wasted, so decided to paint it 'vintage white' and create an interesting corner decor.

Before, but a more raggedy version. Apologies for not taking a photo before the makeover!






The pine cone table on the side is a DIY project that we did a few days earlier....its a fun piece and a story for another time!
