2013 in Review

Wow what a year! It has easily been the biggest year of my life with so many important things happening. At the beginning of 2013, Robin and I were living in Brisbane having moved over from London to Australia. Robin was looking for work and got a job in Melbourne which is awesome because Melbourne is the coolest (fact). So we moved to Melbs, found a rental in Fitzroy North and built a nest. I got to decorate the whole place pretty much from scratch which was immensely satisfying. Then it was head down, bum up and working on launching...

Inside my home – The lounge

Posted by Emma Patterson on

Hi! Come in, come in. Come through to my lounge. Take a seat. Can I make you a cuppa? :) A couple of weeks ago I showed you inside my guest room/office. Today its the living area. Although it isn't where I'm supposed to be working (given such a great office) it is where I spend most of my time. I love this room! A lovely open space with white walls, an awesome couch and sliding glass doors that let the sun pour in. There is a great view of our courtyard and easy access to the open plan kitchen,...

Inside my home - The guest room

Hello lovelies. How are we this happy hump day? Recently I have been attempting to balance launching the Homely Creatures product range with freelance work and getting our place ready for visitors. I can't tell you how much I enjoy having guests over, especially when they are friends from London who I haven't seen in ages. My inner house wife comes out and I transform my disaster-zone-esk office into a welcoming guest room. The office/guest-bedroom has a different character to the rest of the house because this is where I keep a lot of my fun, colourful and quirky homewares....

The Fiddle Leaf Fig - A lovely indoor plant

Do you ever get your heart set on something for your home, only to spend hours and hours searching in vein for somewhere you could buy it from? This seems to be happening to me weekly at the moment. Think I can find just an ordinary, affordable, timber bed base with no bed head attached? Think I can find some outdoor string lights that aren't in primary colours? Think again. I can waste DAYS trawling through Ebay, Gumtree, and online shops looking for that one specific thing that I just don't want to compromise on... and this time it was...

Living room decorated 3 ways with the same grey couch

As I patiently await to see what house we will end up living in, I spend hours online creating a wish list for furniture and homewares to full it with. Perhaps one of the most important pieces, I have put a lot of thought into what couch I would want. The colour, size and comfort of the couch need to be considered but also the look, and how versatile this look is to be a backdrop for my ever changing taste in colours and décor style. One inspirational image I keep on going back to and drooling over is this...
