'The Room Illuminated' Features my Living Room

What a dream come true! My living room/kitchen has been featured on The Room Illuminated blog. The lovely and talented Kate found Homely Creatures through the Pedestrian TV Blogster awards when we both came up as finalists. Kate got in touch when she saw that I lived and Melbourne and asked if I would like to have my living room photographed for her awesome blog which is all about taking a peak into the favourite rooms of every day people. Naturally I said yes.

What a treat to have a visit from Kate! Within minutes I felt like I had known her for years which is a neat quality to have when you make a habit of going around and photographing the inside of stranger's homes.

Kate has found a creative way to quench her curiosity for the stranger's abode at the same time as improving her photography skills. We can all benefit from this by following her blog which is fulling up with heart warming stories of rooms, furniture and families.

Here are some of Kate's lovely shots of my open plan lounge/kitchen and you can check out the whole story here on The Room Illuminated.

If you live in Melbourne and know someone who has an interesting room full of memories and stories, get in touch with Kate.

Melbourne Markit

I was lucky enough to visit the Melbourne 'Markit' last weekend, and I thought I'd share a couple of snaps with you as I was so very inspired by all of the talented designers/crafters there are in this great city. I bagged myself a bargain with one of the pastel pink jelly-mould-like hanging planter pots from Angus & Celeste.

It seems as though plants are a trend to last for the next while with cute baskets, neon string and scrumptious ceramics containing succulents and the like as far as the eye could see.

Speaking of trends also managed to score some AWESOME gold glitter tape from Blank. I love their simple yet adorable range of blank goodies that inspire creativity and giving.

I love that even though it's starting to get quite chilly here now, the neons, pastels and retina-burning colours don't go out of fashion with the seasons. I'm looking at YOU El Rancho Relaxo!
