Peachy Keen

Just a little update on how our crowdfunding campaign is
going (to raise funds for our next printed edition). So far
we have raised 35% of the funds needed to help get the
Paradise issue to print, however we have a long way to
go to raise $10,000 in total and with just 2 weeks left to
do it I'm slightly freaking out. If you haven't had a chance
yet to pre-order a copy or two of the magazine you can do
so here by clicking this link. We even have a group pack if
you and a group of friends/family want to split the costs.
And even retail stores can get in on the action with a
wholesale pack of 10 copies that you can sell in store
(Australian retailers only). Pictured above is just one of
the amazing homes going into this issue belonging to super
stylist Aimee Tarulli, photographed by Martina Gemmola.

Adrienne's black & white room

Another adorable kid's room for you today! This one belongs to
little a girl called Adrienne. Her bold black and white bedroom
was created by New York designers Sissy + Marley (who produce
some of the most amazing kids' rooms by the way). See girls can
have this colour palette in their rooms too! It's not just for boys.
The dramatic contrast of black and white with layers of patterns
makes this space feel playful and chic at the same time.

The designers used their new wallpaper pattern 'Drops'
as inspiration (available from the SISSY+MARLEY for Jill
Malek collection
). Designer Chelsea Reale explains: "We
wanted this room to have a magical feeling and be a space
that an imaginative toddler could dream up some pretty
incredible stories." Incredible indeed! Shop the look below.

Mirvac luxury apartment

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of viewing this
luxurious apartment designed by Mirvac, Belle Magazine
and my favourite interior designer – Greg Natale. The
Pier apartment located right on the riverfront at Newstead is
drop-dead gorgeous. There were lots of 'oohs' and 'aahs'
coming from my way! As I swanned around the apartment
(imagining of course that I live there), I thought to myself
I've got to share this on my blog. Seriously take a look for
yourself. Now when can I move in. No, seriously? When?

OZ Design's winter collection

OZ Design Furniture have just launched their new winter 2015
collection and I'm totally loving the coastal and industrial vibes
throughout the range. How comfortable does that Salotto sofa
look (pictured above)? It has a totally relaxed vibe and would fit
right into any coastal abode. This look is part of the OZ Coast
range - think chalky watercolour prints and luscious soft
botanicals paired with rustic white wash timbers and rattan wicker.

Another key look in the new collection is the OZ Global range -
embracing texture, organic natural fibres, handweaves and multi
two tone timbers. I'm liking the sleek lines on that Marlin buffet
(pictured above), teamed with all of the ceramics in various shapes
and neutral tones. Shop OZ Design's new collection by clicking here.

To launch OZ Design Furniture's winter 2015 campaign they are
giving away a $1000 gift voucher to spend on their furniture and
homewares collections. To enter all you need to do is head to our
Instagram page and post the image on there (that has all of the
details about the competition) to your Instagram feed and follow
and @ozdesignfurniture and #ozdesignwinter15.
Competition is open now until Sunday 15 March (closing at
11.59pm EST). Winner will be drawn by OZ Design.

Design Crush: Emily Henderson

So let me, let you in on a little secret. I have a major design
crush on Emily Henderson. The insanely talented HGTV host,
stylist, designer and blogger (phew!) has captured my heart
with her beautiful interiors, plus she seems super nice and funny
from what I've seen of her videos on youtube. Emily, if you're
reading this, can we please be besties?! And I say that in a non-
creepy kind of way! Haha. This studio (pictured directly above and
below) was designed for Joy Cho, of Oh Joy blog, and it  just makes
me so happy every time I spy it plastered all over the internet!

And boy, does the woman know how to whip up an amazing
gallery wall! This one (pictured above) actually used art the
home owners already owned (which is pretty impressive really)!
Here is a video that Emily and her team made showing how they
transformed this living room (so good - you have to watch!).

And lastly here is a look at Emily's own living room in her
house. This mid-century modern style has me smitten.
When can I move in?! Just love all of the hits of blue and
pale pink too - so relaxing. I could spend hours in this room
flicking through magazines and sipping on hot chocolates
(and I don't even drink hot chocolate) but I totally would
if I lived here - such a cosy, inviting space. Now go on over
to Emily's blog NOW and check out more of her work! She
has one of the funniest and most informative blogs I've ever
read (I know those two things don't seem like they'd go
together, but they really do - Emily just makes interior
design so approachable with her down to earth manner).

Tassel+Gaine's fun new cushions

Tassel+Gaine have a fun new collection of cushions out!
Creative directors Laine Fraser and Fleur Harris absolutely
love what they do, and they've certainly captured this feeling
of fun, frivolity and freedom with their recent lookbook. As
per their first collection, every cushion has a different design
on each side, allowing for multiple styling possibilities. I just
love the fact that each of the cushions can be mixed and
matched with ease. Shop the new collection by clicking here.
