Current Mood: On Holiday

Lately it seems almost all of my inspiration comes from Instagram, in fact, it is my number one tool for finding homes and other content for Adore Home. Here’s a little taste of what’s currently inspiring me.

You could say anything holiday-related is what I’ve been gravitating towards lately, I mean it’s summer afterall. It has been so difficult, especially at this time of year when the weather is so warm, to focus on work. I’d much rather be outside, but the next best thing is scrolling through my feed and soaking up all of that summer inspo. Kyal and Kara are my favourites at the moment – their recent renovation project at Long Jetty is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Their inspiration was Palm Springs, so of course I’m obsessed with the whole home, in particular the outdoor pool area and those Breeze Blocks. Gimme everything!

When I look through my saved images folder in Instagram, there seems to be a recurring theme – the interiors of Halcyon House keep popping up! And for good reason, the interiors (and exterior) by Anna Spiro are heavenly – just so well suited to its coastal location of Cabarita Beach. And now with the opening of their Day Spa, there’s even more reasons why you should visit. I can’t believe I still haven’t stayed and I’m based in Brisbane. Shame. On. Me. 2018 is going to be the year! Oh yeah.

When these rendered drawings popped up in my Instagram feed of the Pine Ave. Townhomes in Melbourne, I just swooned. I’ve been considering re-tiling my apartment’s courtyard in this exact same encaustic tile, and it just makes me love it even more now! And well, everything about these townhomes are so perfect - it’s design at its best, thanks to Cera Stribley Architects, and interior designers The Stella Collective. Want more?

Bamboo or linen? Why choose just one – I Love Linen’s founder Lauren Roe says it’s perfectly fine to mix and match the two as shown in their new campaign images (shot at the beautiful Byron Bay accommodation The Bower by the way). With earthy colours like pistachio, charcoal, and olive ivy, the collection has a sophisticated yet natural appeal. Their new thick textural stripes in milk and natural (shown above) has a lovely relaxed, casual vibe to it – I’m imagining this in a farmhouse cottage or rustic coastal bedroom. For bedding, towels and table linen that are both simple and charming, I Love Linen is your go-to-store. Shop the new range online by clicking here.

MY Bedroom Update

UPDATEadore_home_magazine_bedroom_makeover_bedding_canningvale_linen_fresh_sheets_pastel_pink_lilac copy.jpg

I recently updated my bedroom with new bedding and cushions to give the space a bit of a refresh, and I just love the results.

Every now and then I like to update my bedroom – even if it’s just rotating cushions, it helps to give the space a new lease of life and well, I’m a homewares addict. My old linen sheets have started to wear so thin that they’re almost falling apart (ewww), so I wanted to update all of my bedding. I chose Canningvale’s bamboo cotton quilt cover set in a crisp ‘Carrara White’ and teamed it with their ‘Sogno’ linen cotton sheet set in ‘Amore Blush’. Let me first off start by saying that their bamboo cotton is soooo soft, I’m totally wanting to get the matching sheet set too for the days the linen sheets are in the wash. It’s so touchable I find myself making excuses to go into the bedroom so I can smooth my hands over them! Ok that sounded slightly creepy.

So this page in the new issue of Adore (which is out today in newsagents, hint, hint), totally matches my new Canningvale ‘Valentini’ cotton throw. On their website they describe the colour as dull rose, but in my opinion it looks more lilac. I was a little concerned when I pulled it out of the packet, but when I put it in the room it actually looks amazing, and I think that’s because there’s lots of different tones of pink and lilac that work so well together and it doesn’t feel matchy-matchy. And that pop of mustard in the H&M velvet cushion gives it a little extra punch. I just adore everything in here now.
