You know when you see something in a home or store and you just want to touch it? Probably because it screams texture. A really effective way to create interest in a room is by using different textures. Try a shaggy rug with a smooth, copper light. A raw wooden table with beautiful leather chairs. Instantly these different texture will make a room seem warm and inviting. See if you can pick out the different textures used in these rooms. Don’t forget to scroll down to see my mood board of textured products too.
Marble, Stainless Steel, Timber, Corian, Caesarstone, granite. HELP!!!!! Too many to choose from. If you have ever built or renovated a bathroom or kitchen you will be familiar with some of these types of benchtops. So many to choose from! Here are some pics of my favourites. Which number do you like best?
I realised that those of you who are not following me on Instagram may not have seen many photos of my home. So, here it is! We were lucky enough to build a new home and moved in just over 3 years ago. I must say, I am still in love with it and feel extremely lucky. What I love most is that I feel it’s a real expression of who I am and of my design personality. When you chose things that you love (they don’t need to be the most expensive) it creates a certain warmth. Hope you enjoy.xxx
I love a HUGE door and wide corridors!
We needed to let more light into this room and after looking at the plans for hours and hours I came up with this solution.
I also love my LOOM rug which really is a piece of art.
This is our formal lounge and dining. The table fits 16 when needed – which is pretty often!
My hanging bottles – using fishing wire.
The most used room in the house – the open plan kitchen/living. I’m a major Mark Tuckey fan.
The ensuite. I could never use white marble in the kitchen (scared of staining) but this marble is perfect for our bathroom.
Kids bathroom – lucky kids!!!!

The difference between a warm home and just a house is in the detail. One of the best ways to add warmth and personality to a home is by adding decorative elements. A ladder is the perfect way to do this. Whether you put towels, magazines, scraves or lights on it, a ladder just adds a rustic and natural touch. Let me know what you have put on your ladder.
