In the Press - Homely Creatures in Inside Out Magazine

So a couple of weeks ago, my wildest dreams came true. One of my cushions was chosen to appear in a kids lifestyle interior shoot in the one and only Inside Out Magazine!! I didn't know for sure that my Sleeping Bear Cushion would be featuring in this awesome magazine until the issue was published and there he was, sitting happily amongst products from super star brands I admire Such Great Heights, and Country Road. Even now I am still finding it hard to believe that my wee design has made it into one of the biggest interior design magazines...

Homely Creatures at Life Instyle Sydney 2014

Almost a year ago (already!?) I moved to Melbourne. I quickly discovered that I wasn't as busy with freelance design work as I was in London and had a minor career/identity crisis before deciding to use the spare time I had to finally start my own product range, and do it properly. So in attempts to go fully legit' I am exhibiting Homely Creatures at Life Instyle in the First Instyle section. I have no idea how its going to go, however I have a feeling its going to be a massive learning experience. I have received so much lovely...

Decorating a Neutral Nursery

Now you can bring dreamy,...

Little kids, big kids!

Little kids, big kids!

I don't have any kids myself but I'm a self confessed big kid! I love cute, whimsical or colourful things and believe that pint-sized people shouldn't be the only ones who are allowed be surrounded with them. If something makes me smile, so what if I found it in the 'kid's section' of my favourite gift store! Step aside nagging toddlers, I want one of those adorable bunny lamps too, only I have grown-up money and am tall enough to reach over the counter! Life is too important to be taken seriously and I think Peter Pan has it just...
