Lately I’ve been on the lookout for affordable art to fill the bare walls of my new home. Along came Urban Road!
This great website sells fantastic prints, stretched onto canvas and ready to hang! Best of all they come in a range of decent sizes and they won’t break the bank. Oh and did I mention how much I love a site that offers free shipping?
I love them a lot.
I also love deer motifs so this one is definitely my favourite…
Such beautiful colours and styling.

I have a bit of an obsession with beautiful design books. A beautiful, well structured book can add so much to a space, not just intellectually but as a design feature. They add a pop of colour, illustrate your interests and add a ‘lived in’ vibe to any home. Just look at this gorgeous book-filled room for what can only be described as Proof.
Here are some of my favourites…
And the design book to end all design books…
Books maketh a home… Happy Reading! -C x

I know I’m a little late to the party on this one but the June 2012 issue of Real Living magazine is a cracker!
Will you just look at that cover! The stunning artwork is by the talented Andrew O’Brien and I would kill to own a piece like that.
This issue also marked the release of a very exiting collaboration between Real Living and Target. That gorgeous hot pink bedlinen on the cover is only $109 for a queen set!
There are so many great spaces featured in this issue. Talk about major home envy…
Look at that side board!
Those Moroccan pouffes and wedding blanket!
That hot pink pendant light!
Be still my beating heart! -C x

I definitely have a soft spot for a statement designer chair and lately Acapulco chairs have been catching my eye everywhere I look…
I love the fun quirkiness that these Mexican chairs add to a room, and although I’ve never even sat in one, they look super comfortable!
I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for a vintage Acapulco, infact I’m adding it to my eBay search list right now! -C x

One of my dreams would be to have an entire room to dedicate to clothes, shoes and bags. Right now I would be happy to have even a small walk in wardrobe! My current wardrobe is a tiny built in and although well organised and edited, it is OVERFLOWING! I love to have a place for everything so my wardrobe really frustrates me! But until I have my dream space, I will drool over other girls amazing closets…
It’s all the gorgeous small details in these rooms that I love the most. Shopping bags as art, stunning light fixtures, matching hangers, not to mention the cute clothes and accessories. Completely self indulgent but I don’t care! -C x

This gorgeous waterside home in Sydney’s Pittwater belonging to botanical artist, Cherie-Christine Curchod was featured in Country Style magazine a few months back and the photo’s have been saved on my computer, waiting to be shared ever since.
I love the way this home is styled, it’s so cozy and welcoming, fresh and warm at the same time with a beautifully ‘lived in’ feeling. Not only do I love the incredible style of this home but I love that it is only accessible by boat! What a dream… -C x
