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 feedback from the Melbourne stores I have visited, I would be chuffed if the retailers attending the trade fair are...

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 my Homely Creatures range. It has been my dream ever since I can remember to start my own product range...

'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...

Decorating a Neutral Nursery

If you have a baby on the way you are no doubt getting everything organised in the nursery. And if you are anything like me, you are not thinking pink or blue explosions, nor are you leaning towards pastels. Neutral nurseries are the new trend and this one is not only gender neutral but only uses neutral colours with the occasional burst of black and white boldness. Scandinavian influenced and including the one and only Stokke Cot and Eames Rocking Chair, I'm proud to say this interior has been decorated with Homely Creatures soft furnishings! Now you can bring dreamy, soft neutrals and quirky Scandi style to your nursery because these lovely products (hand made by women in Nepal) are...

Visiting the Design Files Open House

I admit it! I'm a little behind in my updates. And I might have got away with it to except now I'm blogging about visiting the Design Files Open House Melbourne, which was over a week ago. Oh well, better late than never! SO MANY AWESOME THINGS. I wanted to buy them all. And the beauty of this set up was, I could! Everything decorating this drool worthy home was for sale, from the luscious bed linen in the bathroom to the towels handing by the pool outside. But the objects that collected most of my drool were these gorgeous succulent planters from Sophie Moorhouse Morris' Bakerhouse range. The other objects that left a lasting impression on me were these...
