the design files open house 2013

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of going to The Design Files Open House! 

This home... OH!!! It's the epitome of Melbourne with it's loft-style space, tonnes of natural light, timber floors and a mixture of painted and exposed brick walls. Basically... my dream home. It was styled head to toe by Lucy Feagins who has curated (once again) the very best art and home decor items by fantastic Australian brands. Everything in the home was for sale... but the home itself wasn't unfortunately! One day... 

I couldn't take the best pictures as it was packed with people as you can see! But pop over to the Design Files blog to see the full professional photo shoot. Also go and check out the actual Design Files Open House website to pour over their amazing suppliers. The art is so divine! And so inspiring!!!


I was so mesmerised by these portraits by Sandra Eterovic. View her Etsy store here.

And I finally got my hands on an Emily Green necklace! View a great story about how she hand makes every bead on this Design Files story or check out her website here.

new etsy photography

'Mediterranean Tiles' from the Fragments collection. Size 'A2' displayed.

I've been VERY busy this week taking new photos for my white with three etsy store! I just really wanted to give my store a total refresh before Christmas and display a better range of the sizes and colours I have available. It was no easy task - it's taken me all week but I'm happy with the result! Here are a few of my favourites, but head to my store to check them all out.

I also have an exciting new home decor item in the pipeline which will be available soon... stay tuned!


'Banana Plant' botanical drawing. Colour 'grass' size 'A3' displayed. 
(You can get this in any colour you want!) 

'Botanical Fruit' art print. Colour 'stone' size 'A4' displayed. 
(You can get this in any colour you want!) 

'Droplets' art print. Colour 'tiffany' size 'A2' displayed. 
(You can get this in any colour you want!)

'Rainforest Canopy' from the Fragments collection. Size 'A2' displayed.

These are from my 'Geometric' range which come in four different colour schemes. Pictured is the 'Circles' in size 'A2' and 'Triangles' in size 'A4 both in 'colour scheme four'.

These are from my 'Texture of Morocco' range which you can order in any colour you want! Pictured is the 'Texture of Morocco 2' in colour 'summer pink' size 'A2' and 'Texture of Morocco 3' in colour 'crayon purple' size 'A4'.

Most of my prints are available in a custom colour of your choice - here is my colour palette but you can also specify ANY colour if you have something specific in mind!

making a nest in geelong

Well... I'm here! Nick and I moved in to our cute little cottage in Geelong two weeks ago and it's been a little chaotic getting everything unpacked but the boxes have finally disappeared. We have a long way to go in really finessing all the knick-knackery and styling but for now it works! Just thought I'd share a few pics of the entry way and office which is now fully functioning with my printer being set up... I've shipped out quite a few of my white with three etsy orders now so that makes me feel right at home.

The weather is a tad different to Brisbane being a balmy 12deg at the moment (in the middle of November) but I must admit the cool weather is still a novelty to me. A novelty which didn't wear off even through two Melbourne winters... but we'll see how long that lasts...


I love the windows in the main bedroom and how the light comes across my new Kip & Co velvet bedspread (which is crying out for some nice cushions to adorn it). I have bought some new pillowcases from West Elm though which I can't wait to bust out.

Beyond the entryway is a nice-sized nook where the office lives.

The puppies sleep next to my desk and only move to change sleeping postion. Or to bolt to the kitchen if they hear me open tupperware.

The bookshelf is set up and there is a big blank wall that is desperate for some art. We are just renting but thankfully our real estate agents said to go nuts hanging anything anywhere as currently there are only two picture hooks in the entire house!!

Sneak peek of a little project I'm working on with my photography from South America last year... This photo was taken in Cartagena, Colombia... I get lost in this photo studying the streets and people.

Lots of art waiting to be hung!

Couldn't resist grabbing this snap of me in the mirror to show off my little belly. I'm 18 weeks now. Please don't mind the bed hair and tracksuit pants... the Marimekko top kind of makes up for it though?
