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,

Christmas Styling with Adairs

10.png

Happy Thursday!!

We are well on the way to Christmas now with under a month to go, so today I’m going to share with you all the shopping links and images for various festive looks I have styled for Adairs this year. The 2018 Christmas range has left me seriously starry eyed and I was surprised at what a large range there is to choose from. Whatever style you’re wanting to achieve this holiday season, Adairs has you covered!

I chose to stick with a modern Christmas theme this year to compliment my furniture and the rest of our home. After fluffing our tree (which is the 7ft one linked below) I used plenty of twinkle lights to fill the centre of the tree, closest to the trunk. This leaves more room to hang decorations and minimises cords being visible. We then decorated it in an assortment of metallic, white and blush baubles, using different shapes and textures to give a wow factor. As a general guideline, I place one style of bauble at a time starting with the largest, so I know they’ll be separated and the tree will look visually balanced at the end. Below are the decorations I used in my hero look. Please feel free to shop the look and take advantage of the current sale prices.

 Note- Some items may be sold out online but I have still linked them so you can view the product name and pricing, incase you want enquire with your closest store.

I also styled a rustic branch tree filled with lots of enchanting little decorations! These were my favourite decorations to style because they are super whimsical, fun and could be used as sentimental pieces that appear every year on the tree as your children grow. Chet loved helping and took a special liking to the woollen animals, in particular the mouse with the ‘cup of tea’ haha… Although he has requested Adairs bring out a cat next year lol!! If you want to add a bit of twinkle, these string lights are perfect and you can hide the base of the battery pack behind the tree stand (shop here.) I also found that by winding the lights around the base of the branches (closest to the trunk) it helped secure them in place a bit better so they don’t swivel as much. Please feel free to shop the look and take advantage of the current sale prices.

Next up were some more enchanting decorations with a beautiful organic look. The wood, wool and burlap textures look gorgeous together and the metallic berry products add a bit of luxe without being too over the top or glitzy. My favourite piece is the little reindeer with the detailed saddle and glitter antlers. Too cute!! I snipped off the hanging cord and will use it as standing decoration… it deserves it’s own limelight right?! Both the laser cut town and the dome are battery operated which look amazing lit up at night, especially styled next to the berry tree. Give me a bit of shine or sparkle at Christmas and I’m a happy girl!! Please feel free to shop the look and take advantage of the current sale prices.

The last look we created was this bright, fun, modern tree. I have a confession though! I actually styled this tree before I knew how to correctly ‘fluff’ one. After a quick tutorial on youtube, and about 40 mins of branching out and tilting the stems you can see just how much fuller and fluffier my top images ‘hero look’ is in comparison to the below. None the less, I love the vibrancy of these decorations and how the flamingos instantly inject a punch of colour into the space. Another aspect of the Adairs Christmas range I admire, is that lots of different pieces compliment each other for example, the tea cup set, gift swing tags and the Santa sacks all consist of either the same print, or same colours… making matchy, matchy people (like myself) weak at the knees! Please feel free to shop the look and take advantage of the current sale prices.

Well that’s a wrap from me! I hope you enjoyed these four fab Christmas looks and got some inspiration from the images. I have tried my best to link all the main items but if you have seen something not listed on the ‘shop the look’ section, please comment below and I’ll respond with an answer. I hope you all have the most amazing, love filled festive season with your family and friends.

Much love,

Adairs Spring 18

Adairs Spring Web.pnglinebreakHappy Thursday!

It is always a pleasure to share new seasonal trends with you, especially when the products align so perfectly with my own style. I’m pretty sure someone secretly made the Adairs Spring ’18 collection with me in mind!!! Think loads of texture, soft linen and cotton fabrics, embroidery, fringing, greenery and some seriously pretty pastels.

By now you all know I’m huge on texture and layering.  I have folded the cream Asilah Quilt and used it as a comforter across the end of the bed. It breaks up the large area of sage, and also creates a warm, homely feel because the texture is soft and inviting.

The Savana vintage wash throw is my favourite linen throw to date! The two tone colouring (blush and a powder beige reverse) makes it the perfect styling staple and the fringed edge gives an organic, raw look. It has a matching cushion which I have placed on my bed and the Boracay fringed cushion is also a lovely shade of blush if you are looking for an alternative. See below.linebreak

On the topic of raw edges, the new bamboo linen range is really beautiful… and super soft! Even softer than my old favourite, the stonewash collection. It’s breathable and lightweight making it perfect for the warmer months approaching. I’ll be honest, before now I had never bought a bamboo sheet or quilt cover set because the style was too simple but the raw edge on this new collection is right up my alley!

Lastly, I’ve placed some greenery on my bedside tables to bring the outdoors in and complete the spring look. The faux white jasmine bunches look realistic and are a great cost effect option if you don’t want to replenish fresh blooms throughout spring/summer.   I may have to also invest in a faux fiddle leaf soon because I have managed to kill a second real one, nooo!

Please feel free to ‘shop the look’ below and take advantage of the current Spring Sale on now.

Much love,

T xx

Happy 4th Birthday Chet!

linebreakTo my gorgeous little man Chet,

Today is your 4th Birthday! That means I have spent 208 weeks (or 1,459 days) being your mum. I have loved you fiercely for every single one of those days, even through your heated tantrums. You not only brighten my life, but the lives of everyone you meet. You’re strong willed, cheeky, smart, adventurous, caring, HILARIOUS and such a pleasure to watch grow.

I can’t wait to see what this next year brings and how beautifully you continue to blossom into a sweet, young man.

Love your biggest fan, Mumma xx

Master Bedroom Refresh

4.pnglinebreakHi everyone,

Here in Perth we had a tonne of rain and stormy weather over the weekend so I thought it would be the perfect time to show you my new cosy bedding from the Adairs Autumn Colour Romance Collection.

I’m beyond excited to be partnering with Adairs this year and styling various seasonal looks over the next 12 months. I was also lucky enough to fly to Melbourne for the Autumn Colour Romance Launch in March. I got to view all of the new season product in person and meet some incredibly talented women who I will be working alongside this year.

My starting point was the Winter Romance Cushion. This cushion caught my eye first because it has a range of beautiful colours that I can draw from to build layers and create a cosy bed, ready for the cooler months approaching. I then chose the Malta quilt and european pillowcases in sage because it has a subtle quilted texture and it ties back with the leaves in the romance cushion perfectly. I also find sage really easy to style with other colours. It looks nice with blush, rose, light grey, plum, burgundy, white etc so it can be restyled for future looks in a new palette.

linebreak2linebreak

Tip: When styling a bed, I usually buy the quilt cover and euros in the same style… Pair one standard pillowcase set with the sheets and the other standard set with whatever colour you have in the surrounding space. It ensures everything looks balanced and visually pleasing.

So abiding by my own little personal rule above, I selected the sheets and standard pillowcases next. I chose the Stonewashed Cotton Silver sheets and one pillowcase pair, then another set of standard pillowcases in the Vintage Wash Prune colour. Moving down to the throws, I chose the Himalayan Fur Blanket in Zinc and the Malmo Linen throw in Rose to layer together at the end of the bed. They not only add warmth and texture to the space but also tie in the dusty rose and warm grey elements in other areas of the room.

Lastly, I bought the Marmaris bedside tables to match the rest of my furniture. They’re a really nice sturdy bedside and I love the warmth of the timber. I’m also a big fan of the open bookshelf because I like having a place next to the bed to house a few magazines and books.

Well, that’s my AW18 look complete! I can’t wait to snuggle into this bedding during winter and enjoy the ‘fresh linen feels.’ Scroll down to shop the look and bag yourself a bargain in the current Adairs Autumn sale.

Much Love,

T x

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
