Its really nice to be given the opportunity to choose different colors for a girls nursery - no sign of pink here! Mint and gorgeous grey is such a beautiful fresh color combination - it's warm, inviting and calming which is exactly what you need when you have a new born! I really love the way this nursery turned out - my favourite piece is the Little Liberty Mint Bookshelf Tree!

I recently completed this gorgeous main bedroom for a client of mine who requested something fresh and feminine. My client trusted me completely and handed over the 'room reins' (my favourite sort of client) and even better I was starting with a blank canvas for the room (my favourite sort of room). I love the combination of powder blue and natural linen together and combined with the light coming in from the beautiful feature window it's a match made in heaven!
I'm really excited to finally reveal one of my favourite tween rooms to date - I love this mostly monochrome scheme and think that the 10 year old girl who lives here will be happy to stay at home until she is into her twenties (sorry Mum). I've been wanting to use this fabulous white brick wallpaper for a long time and I finally had the chance with this gorgeous client. What a brilliant modern backdrop it makes for teenage rooms - I loved adding in the bold aqua and turquoise as highlight colors which gives the space and edge and vibrance.

I recently created these mood boards for two brothers at very different stages of their lives. One is for an 8 month old baby and the other is for his big 6 year old brother. The top mood board has personality and spunk and the other is soft and innocent which really reflects the ages of both boys.

It's so fun to help clients with other areas of their homes - I've just recently completed these two mood boards for two different areas of the house. The top board is for a light and airy family room and the bottom board is for a moody sophisticated adult space.

Wouldn't it be great if you were able to decorate your walls and at the same time raise awareness about environmental and social issues and also give to charity? Well now you can thanks to Egg Picnic http://eggpicnic.com/ founded by Camila De Gregorio and Christopher Macaluso. Their universally relatable design aesthetic creates a bridge to communicate complex, sometimes confronting, socially-conscious ideas and stories through art prints and art-toys. Some of their prints are in collaboration with non profit organisations in Australia and part of the sales gets donated to them. What a great initiative Egg Picnic is - it's socially conscious art!

Well done Radiant Orchid for winning the Pantone Color of the Year award for 2014 (and it's not even 2014 yet!) - you must be so proud of yourself! Say goodbye to a favourite of mine and last years winner Emerald Green - I will still be using you though.

You may remember back in November 2011 I posted a baby nursery entitled Princess India - well now Princess India is all grown up and has travelled to Morocco! Her Mum called upon my services again to re-work the room to incorporate a new big girls bed and some new furniture pieces. I really love the custom designed fabrics I chose for the bed pillows and also the custom made heart art piece which is a real show stopper in the room! My favourite item is the pink moroccan shaped bed head I designed - the orange piping is such a gorgeous addition to the look of both the bed head and the ottoman at the end of the bed.
I'm sure many of your know by now that I have a deep seeded love for neons and bright colors .... but I have to admit pastels are the new neon! I created this beautifully blissful blue room for a divine little nine year old girl. I absolutely love the color and pattern of the wallpaper - it really gives the entire room a peaceful serene feel and a harmonious space for lots of homework! The gorgeous heart pillow on the swan chair was lovingly created by my clients grandmother who made it out of a dress that my client didn't fit into anymore! How cute is that!
