Thankfully for Broadhurst devotees, these must-have home decor pieces can most definitely be yours – and with up to 30% off the usual price, might I add!

taking in the beauty at indigo love

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 11.56.11 AM

A few weeks back, I hit the road to Jervis Bay for the weekend in search of sun and sand (and a drop of Savvy B, of course). I knew all about Indigo Love prior to going as I had the pleasure of visiting this Huskisson store on my last trip down the South Coast of Sydney a year or so ago. This time was different; this time I had my camera in hand so I could snap the store in all its glory.

the go-to store for brit-inspired homewares

Screen Shot 2013-09-24 at 8.31.20 AM

For as long as I can remember I have loved everything about Britain. And no, it has nothing to do with that Union Jack dress Ginger Spice wore at the Brits that time (though I’m sure it helped). There is just something so wonderfully charming about British decor. Founder of SE10 Gallery, Sam Cannell, clearly shares my fondness for all things UK, because she’s opened a gorgeous online homewares store that celebrates it!

inside the gorgeous ginger elliott open house

Screen Shot 2013-09-22 at 9.53.05 PM

This Saturday morning just gone, I had the pleasure of attending the stunning Ginger Elliott Open House. Mother Nature was clearly on my side because she drenched the city of Sydney in sunlight, which made the entire experience all the more glorious. Not only did I get to ooh and ahh over the upcycled designer furniture and homewares on sale in the Balgowlah home, but I also got to meet the GE team, sip on bubbly (don’t mind if I do) and take part in a Styling with Flowers demonstration. It was all a bit dreamy!

real room: sam’s dreamy open plan home

Screen Shot 2013-09-16 at 4.06.39 PM

I love open plan living and the dividing up of a space into zones using furniture. This week’s Real Room does just that – and exceptionally well, might I add. The beachside suburb of Glenelg is the setting for this lovely abode, the home of Creative Sam Cannell. What’s not to love about a space that’s so light, bright, and gives a gentle nod to a coastal vibe without a literal item in sight!?

i’ve recently gone cuckoo for clickon furniture

Screen Shot 2013-09-06 at 3.01.21 PM

I had yet another tyre-screeching moment last week when I drove past the glorious Clickon Furniture in Rosebery. Thankfully I managed to avoid causing an accident, parked the car and high-tailed it into this mecca for all things bright and beautiful. What I uncovered was a glorious dream, filled with light timber, pops of neon and some industrial elements that I have fallen for in a big way (plus they have a cement floor – and you can never go wrong with a cement floor!).

fun in the sun at the freedom summer launch

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 9.25.30 AM

I must say, getting a sneak peak at my favourite things in the world (that’s homewares) really is one of the major perks of being a blogger. When Freedom invited me to take a look at their soon-to-be-released tableware range on Wednesday, it was on like Donkey Kong! Not only did I get to see some of their stunning new pieces, but I also got a look-in on their Christmas wares as well. It was all rather dreamy!

Sometimes dreams really do come true. The new issue of Inside Out – available now – proved it by including me as one of its Six Blogs to Bookmark. That is, of course, not the only phenomenal thing about this issue, but it certainly helped raise my excitement levels when I got home to rip open my subscription and flick to page 42 to see The Life Creative mentioned!

news just in: whites and brights do mix

War_Pony_2

If it’s one thing Mumma Creative has been telling me for years, it’s that brights and whites don’t mix. While this is of course true when it comes to washing your clothes (if I find one more pink shirt!) the same cannot be said for home decor.

which-are-you-wednesday: armchairs

There’s something wonderfully indulgent about an armchair. I think it’s mostly because it’s made for one person; a real opportunity to have some you time and claim some real estate that nobody else can invade. Whether you curl up with a book, a wine or a cat (or like me, all three!), an armchair is a home essential. But what’s your style? Cast your vote in this week’s Which-are-you-Wednesday: Armchairs!
