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.

Royal Nursery - Baby Nurseries fit for a Prince

With the birth of Will and Kate's royal baby boy, it seems the whole world is going ga ga, getting clucky and coming down with a bout of baby fever!

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...

Searching for my dream home

Big news! Robin got the job so we are MOVING TO MELBOURNE!! Finally a chance to nest, but how to find the perfect home? We will be renting for the next year or so but have been travelling around so long that we don't want to live in just any old house or apartment.

While I would LOVE to find a converted warehouse with original brick walls or a loft apartment with...
