Loft Room

Hi everyone, I sound very American calling this a Loft Room. I'm very influnced by those American Blogs and TV shows. I just cant help myself. I found this lovely room on House of Turquoise's Blog.

It's a real mix of different blues - something I wouldn't of thought to do myself. However, I'm really enjoying the combination and I think it works well. The stand out graphic of the curtains really anchors the room and helps lead your eye into the design. Repeating the navy in the lamp and the trim on the armchairs and cushions ties it all together. What do you think?

Kids Rooms

Hi there, I hope everyone is enjoying the Australia Day long weekend. It was actually nice to see the rain today as the garden was looking very dry. Today was spent maintaining the pool. My very favourite place to be - haha, not really. So now one new pool cleaner later we are back in business. The things you do for your children!! Well I do like the look of a pool in a backyard too, but if only they took care of themselves.

Tonights post is all about kids rooms. I found these great images on Decoratulama's Blog. They are all sort of raw and humble and realistic I guess for want of a better word. Rooms that have been decorated by a Mum or Dad for love. (or so they look) So I wanted to share them with you. I love a really decorated room, but I also love down to earth - sort of accidential decorating that just works. Hope you like them and they give you some ideas to try yourself.

The Great Outdoors

Hi everyone, it's been such a lovely day by the pool with all the kids. I didn't actually go in - just entertaining - eating and drinking with my dear friends. I'm not much of a swimmer, but I love the pool to look at - oh and I must admit I love it when it's 40 degrees in Sydney.

Kids are now totally exhausted from a 4 hour marathon swimming session. I'm amazed at how they can stay in there so long and make up so many games and still not want to get out at the end of it all.

Which brings me to tonights post - a little collection of lovely outdoor spaces. I'm really sorry, I have had these images for a while before I was very good at filing them properly so I cannot credit them. Please let me know if you are aware of the original source.

Rustic Cottage

Hi all, I hope your week is going well. I'm counting down till the kids go back to school. Can't wait to get stuck into all my new jobs with out being interrupted to make a snack, sort out a fight, find a toy etc etc etc. Off to the movies with the kids tomorrow - so hopefully some time to daydream and contemplate new ideas for my clients.

I seem to have a bit of a thing for rustic, pared back spaces at the moment. Maybe its the colour palette - maybe its just the simple earthiness of them. So here are a few more photos from Coco & Kelley's blog. A lovely little cottage, I guess in some lovely far away place. Hope you like it.

Industrial Loft

Hi all, I hope everyone had a great weekend. We didn't do much here, just a bit of BlogLovin for me. Which is always good to see what everyone else is doing around the globe. I came across this gorgeous Atlanta Industrial Loft on Daily Dream Decor's Blog. I'm really enjoying this colour palette at the moment. Even though its an industrial loft that muted colour palette with subtle hints of bluey green and those sandy colours remind me of the beach.

I guess it appeals as I'm working on a beach house at the moment - selecting the overall colour scheme for all the exterior and interior finishes. I had better get on with it then. So I'll leave you with these images.

bye for now
