The Block-Buster!

The Block Glasshouse Contestants

A lot has been said about the ending of the most recent series of The Block Glasshouse.

I can’t even imagine the stress of having to produce room upon room on little sleep or any time to rest and re-group.

I commend all of the contestants for an amazing effort and at the end of the day an auction is at the mercy of the bidders and how badly they want a property.

I reserve my comments for the rooms themselves.

There were two two stand outs for me – Dee & Darren’s kitchen & Chris & Jenna’s master bedroom.

Darren & Dee's kitchen & terrace

Dee’s styling was faultless, her taste impeccable & attention to detail is evident
in this shot of the kitchen & terrace.

Darren & Dee's kitchen

The timeless back splash & flooring were winners for me.

Chris & Jenna's bedroom

This copper wall  was a stunner and created a bed head that went on forever.
I loved it!

Until next year’s season of The Block!

Grey Glamour

What does the colour grey
mean to you?

Grey Paint

When googling words to describe grey
I found the following

Detatched
Neutral
Impartial
Solid
Stable
Subdued
Quiet
Reserved
Indecisive (a fence sitter)
Compromise (neither black nor white)

To me , grey is

Glamour
Style
Sophistication
A neutral that never goes out of style
and
so much more – as reflected in the following images

Featured Designer – Sarah Richardson

Sarah Richardson

sarah richardson

She’s the Canadian designer with impeccable taste, a love of mixing styles, patterns
and eras and creating rooms that most people only dream of.

In 1995 Sarah was working behind the scenes as a prop stylist and
set decorator, but it wasn’t long before she’d switched to the other side
of the lens to her on-camera career.

By the late 1990’s, Sarah found herself in high demand as an on screen
personality and quickly realized that she could carve a niche in the emerging
world of design TV by sharing her practical, endearing and inspiring
approach to décor and design with viewers.

Sarah is the host, co-creator and co-producer of four HGTV series:
Room Service
Design Inc.
Sarah’s House (and Sarah’s Cottage)

Featured Designer – Nate Berkus

Nate Berkus

Nate BerkusI miss Nate from the Oprah Show and then when his own show was cancelled
I was equally disappointed.  I enjoy his design style & updates on what he’s up to.

Nate’s rooms display sophistication & an effortless ease through the use of textures
and layering, creating one beautiful room after the other.

My latest Project

Welcome to my latest project

The Style ProjectThis gorgeous 3 bedroom home in the NSW Riverina became ours on 28 July.
Our weekend retreat will be lovingly transformed over time and I’ll keep you
up to date with the transformation.

My favourite source for images as you know is Pinterest and it’s provided
food for thought on what I do and don’t want in our country home.

Our city house has a manicured garden, is painted in white & grey and accented
with metallics, wallpapers and designer pieces.  The opposite will be true in our new home
with comfort and family time as our main focus.

We spent three days there when we collected the keys and we took our first
trailer load down.  I cleaned and organised the kitchen, set up a bed and we enjoyed the
combustion fire.  I’ve been shopping for several months now (so much fun!)  for all of the
kitchen items and the larger recent purchases currently residing in our garage include
wardrobes, a dressing table, dining table, an old timber bar cart and side table.

Warm tones will feature throughout as will honey coloured timber pieces.

The Style ProjectI can’t wait to get this piece into the master bedroom

Until our house gets underway here are some inspiring images
