Shop the Skater Look

BanksiaGroveBoys.pnglinebreak

Good evening everyone!

I recently completed this fun, skate inspired bedroom for Homebuyers Centre WA and I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I have compiled a list of the supplier details and created a ‘shop the look’ section below with clickable links for anyone wanting to source items from this vibrant boy’s room.  You can also check out this space in person at the new ‘Ascend’  display home in Banksia Grove (address and details here.)

In the coming weeks I will write a separate blog entry on designing fun-filled kid’s bedrooms and how to style with colour. It will be quite informative and full of handy tips, so stay tuned.

Have a lovely week!

The best coastal art prints

theatre2linebreakHey everyone!

Recently I have been uploading snippets of a new coastal display home I completed in March and a recurring question I keep getting asked is, “where is the art from?” Last night, I compiled a list of prints that I purchased for the home, including easy shopping links so you can steal the look and easily find the supplier details. Most of the artwork is available in various sizes and framing options are also available.

Below are a few tips I follow when buying artwork to ensure they are all consistent with the theme of the home.

I order all my prints unframed and get them framed up by George at Demmer Gallery in Osborne Park. This keeps the shipping cost down because to get a framed print shipped to Perth is much more expensive, purely because of the weight. I also buy some ready made poster frames from Spotlight for prints going in ‘non-feature’ areas of the home.

One of the most important things I consider when buying art is if the colours and tones all work well together. So for example, in this home I wanted soft, muted blues and natural tones, with an exception of the boy’s bedroom. If you purchase a few posters from one photographer or one store, you’ll notice a lot of their post production, presets and filters are the same so the colours are always quite similar… This is great if you want to use two prints side-by-side.

I buy a lot of landscape artwork because I like to put prints in the bathroom, ensuite, laundry and hallways. They fill the wall space better and create visual interest in areas that are sometimes left bare. If there is a large wall to hang artwork on, I will always look for a matching pair of portrait prints. I find having two large portraits, fills the wall better than one large landscape… unless it’s above a sofa or bed etc!

Well they’re my top three tips for purchasing artwork and ensuring you keep a consistent flow throughout the home. Feel free to shop the featured coastal prints by clicking on the corresponding numbers below.

Take care,

Styling a monochrome bedroom.

Aveley Master2linebreakHey everyone,

I can’t believe it’s Feb already and this is my first post for the year! I’ve been a bit slack on blog entries lately, but I had lots of questions on my feed last night about products used in the master bedroom of the ‘Odelle’ Homebuyers Centre display home. I honestly don’t mind replying to each and every question asked, but it does consume quite a lot time after hours, so hopefully you guys don’t mind me whacking all the information in one ‘shop the look’ post.

If you’re stopping by to read more about the design process and composition of this bedroom, feel free to scroll further down. I will share some basic tips on styling a monochrome space and explain the choices I made to ensure the room still has visual impact.

The grey scatter cushion was purchased from The Furniture Gallery and the headboard was custom made to fit the length of the ensemble and bedsides. If you’re in Perth, I’m more than happy to get an upholstery price quoted up for you based on your measurements.

If you love the monochrome look and want to create an inviting bedroom, try applying some of the below tips.

  1. Use timber accents to create warmth. Adding oak alongside the grey, black and white tones will soften the space and make it feel more inviting.
  2. Use enough timber to create harmony. For example, if you split the main image into thirds I’ve used the warmth of oak in each section (top, middle and bottom.) Top- the frames and pendant details, middle- the bedsides and bottom- the bench seat and tray. By repeating the use of this material, it ensures that the overall room feels balanced.
  3. Add soft textures. Soft textures will soften the contrasting colour palette and create a warm, cosy space.
  4. Repeat the textures if possible. By using similar textures throughout the bedroom it makes the space feel balanced (just like the repetition of timber I touched on above.) For example, The fluffiness of the native artwork has been repeated in the soft fringing on the bedding and the hide on the floor… which again is placed in their own ‘thirds grid.’
  5. Add some greenery or foliage. By styling a small bouquet of flowers or foliage on a bedside table, it helps bring life into the space and also adds a pop of colour without being a ‘feature colour.’
  6. Add a feature to the bedroom. Usually colour would be a point of interest within itself, so when styling a monochrome palette I would normally use a main feature and then a few smaller details that still add visual interest. I wanted the main feature here to be the 3m headboard because even though the design is pretty basic, the scale of it creates a lasting impression. Other features within the design would be the bold, contrasting artwork, the detailed handles on the bedsides, the ribbed pendants and woven bench seat. All these elements are textured which is why I have kept the headboard design and bed styling pretty simple.

Mia’s Nursery

1.png

linebreak

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I want to share Mia’s nursery reveal with you all. It is packed full of blush tones, cosy textures and the cutest little details. The brief I got from my client (and now friend) Joanne was dreamy and pink! She wanted a cosy space that felt warm and pretty for Mia to enjoy and grow in. I’m so pleased with how the room turned out and even more so that Jo and the family adore it. As always, I’ll write a bit about the room then post the images and at the end, link all the products so you can easily shop the look.

Our starting point was the Cole and Son’s star wallpaper. It’s such a lovely pale blush colour and the design is really versatile. By having a simple patterned design, it allows the room to evolve into a toddler bedroom, then young girl’s room and still look age appropriate. When I showed Jo this wallpaper as a starting point, it was a big YES and from there we could start introducing complimenting blush accents.

Although everything works so well as a finished product, we did face the challenge of making sure all the pink tones were similar. Some items we bought online were too peach, some were too candy pink and some were too musky (the joys of shopping online and the colour arriving way off.) So we swapped things around until we achieved the perfect tonal range and the room looked balanced.

Another issue we had was trying to find floating timber shelvingggg! Omg, raw timber shelving (not laminate) is so hard to come across. The only ones I have ever loved are the Ethnicraft oak ones stocked by Globewest, but they weren’t the right size so we had some custom made for the recess. Jo’s friend is a carpenter and he did a fantastic job creating the three shelves below (I have linked his details in the shop the look section.)

Looking back at this project, I love how all the little details help make the space balanced and harmonious. Often, the finer details are the elements that bring the whole space together and create visual impact. The subtle pops of gold, warm timber tones, and ruffles of tulle are repeated throughout the nursery, to do exactly that- delight the eye and tie the room together.

Okay enough rambling about the process. Below are the images I took of Mia’s nursery last week and most of the supplier links. If I’ve accidentally left something out, just leave a comment in the comments section and I’ll answer asap 🙂

Have a lovely week,

T xx

Bedside Table Styles Under $300

bedsidesgalore.png

linebreak

Hey everyone,

It’s been a while since posting online here. I’m really enjoying being less present on social media and watching Chet grow before my eyes. My blog posts have been put on the back burner a little bit lately, but in saying that, Chet is at his dad’s house today so I have a spare hour to write a new entry!

One of the most common questions I get asked is, “Where are the bedsides from?” No matter which project I’m posting an image of, the bedsides always receive a lot of love. So, I thought I would show you 15 of my favourites that are under $300.00… as well as a couple that exceed the $300.00 mark just a teensy bit!

I am an all-round lover of oak/ oak veneer because I like the warmth it brings to a room. However, lately I’m also crushing on walnut and brass details, especially coming into the autumn / winter season! I’ve listed a few different styles and colours, as well as some bargain finds that are on sale!

Enjoy these beauties and feel free to shop the look below.

I included a few side tables as well because sometimes it’s nice to have a simpler design in a guest bedroom where drawers aren’t needed. They also look great against a dark feature wall or wallpaper if you want the background to be your ‘wow factor.’ By using a side table instead of a bulkier bedside table you’re allowing the background to be your main feature in the room.

Before purchasing a side table to act as a bedside, it’s important you check the measurements because they come in all different widths and heights. Some are high, some are super low… so you need to make sure you choose one that sits relatively in line with your mattress.

If you want to change up the look of your current bedside table and it has a handle or knob, you can always purchase a new one to give it a fresh look. I changed the Balmain Bedside Table knobs to a small crystal in the girl’s room (featured at the end of this post.) It gives a softer, younger and more feminine feel, which works well against all the girly elements in the space. Some of my other faves are leather, vintage ivory and wooden replacement handles- eBay and Etsy are full of great little finds!

Well I hope you’ve gained some inspo from this blog post and enjoyed seeing some of my fave bedside designs.

Have a fab week,

Txx

Homebuyers Girl’s Room

homebuyersGIRLS.png

Hey everyone,

First of all I wanted to thank you for all the love and messages on my previous post. It was really comforting knowing other women could relate in one way or another. So thank you, I was heart warmed by each comment and private message.

Today I’m going to share some really cute images from the girl’s bedroom I recently completed in the Homebuyers Centre ‘Norfolk’ display home. This room is super sweet and if you’re in Perth you can check it out in person at 4 Quinn Street (off Farrell Road) in Midvale. The opening hours are:

Monday and Wednesday 2pm – 5pm

Saturday and Sunday 12pm – 5pm

It’s a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home design, with an open plan living area, theatre, kid’s zone and large alfresco area. I have kept the furniture and decor selections light and bright with a fairly neutral colour palette and the occasional pop of blush. If you want some inspiration or are looking at building your first home, head over to Homebuyers Centre for all the details on how you could receive an interior styling consult with me. Whoooop!

The girl’s bedroom is probably one of my favourite rooms because I love the blush, white and soft blue colour palette. The warm and cool tones work beautifully together and it creates something different, in comparison to the very popular blush and white scheme for a little girl. I will admit the soft blue product is quite hard to find so I will upload a ‘Shop the Look’ concept further down, with easy shopping links so you can find a majority of the product I have used. If something is sold out online, you may want to contact the store directly and see if it’s in stock somewhere close by because this job was bought and installed only a month ago (sometimes online sells out quicker than in store.)

Often I get asked where I ‘start’ when designing/styling a kid’s room and usually my answer is the art or wallpaper. In this case it was the Sara Winfield art but I also wanted a subtle wallpaper that didn’t take away from the print. I locked in a neutral star wallpaper from Wall Candy (in Perth) but the next step was to find a couple of other prints that complimented the Sara artwork nicely. I approached Little Design Haus to customise her ‘Scandinavian Flowers’ set, changing out the grey for blue. I adore the finished product and they work beautifully opposite the Sara art. From there, I hunted for blush and soft blue decor/bedding to create balance in this magical little space.

I also wanted to hang a canopy off center to create interest and fill the wall space a little more. I decided to break away from the usual brand I use and try a Spinkie Baby design. Oh my gosh, it’s so soft and pretty. Perfect if you’re wanting to create a dreamy girl’s bedroom or play area. You can choose either a gold or silver crown, or leave it off completely, so it’s quite a versatile styling piece. The Australian stockist is listed further down in the ‘Shop the Look’ section.

To keep costs down and work within my allocated budget I used affordable furniture and focused on spending more on cute decor/ styling pieces. The desk is from Adairs and the bed is from Fantastic Furniture (links below) so I thought these were great little finds that really helped me stay within my fairly tight budget. By watching what I spent on the large ticket items, I was able to buy some cool books from Jack and Willow as well as some gorgeous bedding from various stores below.

Well I better get linking all the product because it will be fairly long. If you have any questions or if I have left something out, feel free to comment below and I’ll answer asap 🙂 Oh and make sure if you’re in Perth you go check it out in person.

Much Love,

T xx
