For the past few days I've had no voice... :(

Tuesday Tour - Carolyn

Just adore this gorgeous home I saw on Design Sponge. It's in Toronto and belongs to Carolyn & Derek Gavin - let me tell you, these are peeps with no apparent fear of colour and it makes for a fantastic space...

First things first, here's the kids room....


And delicious grown up spaces....













Hop over here to D*S to check out the full tour and interview...


Kids space? Your space.

Whimsical. White. Wood.
3 of my favourite elements.
4 gorgeous rooms.
They're supposed to be for the little people.
But I'd be happy with any one of them for my own...





The Block update: Sophie & Dale's wallpapers

The season is drawing to a close friends! The past ten weeks have flown by so quickly! And I think it's been my favourite season so far. The perfect balance of lovely Blockheads, obnoxious Blockheads and the obligatory sibling Blockheads... Mixed with a dash of Dale & Sophies stunning style and it couldn't be anything but a winner... But my favourite thing about this season has been the sharing. I just love that the suppliers have been given a starring role! Nothing beats seeing something you love and being told where to get it! So, in the name of sharing, here's where to get my favourite element from house #1...

The Wallpapers....


How realistic was this wallpaper?! It looked so real! And it comes in other colours.... 
Oh be still my beating heart. The black is ah-mazing.






It's called Scrapwood by Piet Hein Eek, and you can get it from here for $330p/10m roll.


But this one is still the favourite - well, for me anyway. A friend of mine is obsessed with it. She'd used it in 3 houses well before anyone had ever heard of Sophie and Dale... But I had no idea it came in other colours....








Woods is a Cole & Son paper and is available from here

Ace Space Saturday

What a divine space this is... Found over at Oh Dee Doh, I just love every square inch of it!
A perfect blend of pattern layering and pretty for 2 lucky little girls.





Natural surrounds

I'll admit, I do seem to be having a bit of a "stone feature wall" obsession lately, but you have to admit, they are quite striking... In fact, I'm noticing more and more how drawn I am to spaces containing natural elements - whether it's stone, leather, sisal flooring, raw aged timber or even just some ochres and natural earthy hues... A natural element provides a warmth that can't be matched by anything else. It puts heart in your home. Take a look at these beauties that have caught my eye over the past week...







Aren't they all cosy? Just what's needed here in Sydney with this freezing weather misery we're having! Makes me want to rush out and stock up on sheepskin rugs and cane baskets... Hope you're staying warm and dry!
