Laundry Inspo

• Chelsea McMahon

Laundries are often the room in the house that get the least amount of thought when building or renovating. Unfortunately it's a room we spend a lot of time in so it's worth making it pretty and functional. We've got some tips and design inspiration on laundries for you all today.   If your like me and you live in an apartment or maybe just a small house with not a lot of space then a hallway laundry or laundry behind a cupboard is soo convenient for you. You really don't need a whole room for your laundry, you just need to be smart about your design and stack your washer & dryer to take up less space (hopefully your...

As Featured

• Chelsea McMahon

FOR those of you who haven't been following House Rules on tv this week we were featured as a supplier for the show in the house of Sean and Ella in Hobart, Tasmania. Kate and Harry used our beautiful Miss Arabella print by Brent Rosenberg and our Aura waffle towels in smoke in their bathroom which tie in perfectly with the print. Aaron and Daniella's kitchen featured one of our cheeseboards. Here is the finished room with Miss Arabella sitting pretty on the wall. We love that they've matched the pink tiles to the print.   And in the background are our Aura waffle towels in smoke, also available in denim and black. The perfect basic towel for any bathroom....

Bathroom Inspo

• Chelsea McMahon

I'M going to keep the theme going and share with you all my bathroom inspo this week. Once again the wonderful world of instagram has provided me with many images to work with to show you all my favourite features and trends for a bathroom. In my opinion the best feature a bathroom can have is plenty of natural light, this will always lift it 100%.   The main thing i love about this bathroom is those beautiful off the wall to ceiling mirrors! The bigger the better right. And that grey marble vanity top that slightly climbs up the wall against the small subtle black tap ware is just everything. Combined with the white tiles throughout the bathroom it's...

Kitchen Inspo

• Chelsea McMahon

AS many of you know it's easy to spend a little too long on instagram drooling over all the beautiful home and interior photos and maybe sometimes sobbing because it's also a little depressing too if your home doesn't look like all these photos... But if you'd like to drool some more here's a look at my kitchen mood board from some of my fave instagram pages. I'm going to start with my all time fave thing in kitchens and houses at the moment and thats paneling, ugghhhh i love it soo much!! I'm obsessed with weatherboard homes so paneling inside the home just ticks all the boxes for me! If you look closely this beautiful kitchen even features a...

Cushion Combo's

• Chelsea McMahon

WITH autumn upon us and winter fast approaching, that means time for a style change in the living room, am i right? Out with those bright summer colours and light weight blankets and in with the fluffy cushions and big chunky throws! A cup of tea and a pair of ugg's wouldn't go astray either!   I thought i'd put together some cushion combo's. Featuring fur, velvet, fluff and something knitted. Hopefully you see something that tickles your fancy.   I've noticed a big rise in the boho trend lately and I can see why, the colours are soft and the textures are cosy. Just what's needed for the cooler weather to come. Here we have a shaggy cushion by...

Skin Favourites

• Chelsea McMahon

For a while now i've been using the same skin products over and over again, because i can't seem to bring myself to try anything new and they're all just so damn good. Three years ago for Mothers day i purchased the Alpha-H A-List kit for my mum, which i think back then was actually called the anti ageing kit - sorry mum! Being the daughter i am i got a little bit of use out of this kit as well (whats mum's is mine right?). So a couple of months later my 18th birthday rolled around and this will go down as one of the most bizarre 18th birthday present requests but, i asked for skincare. More specifically Alpha...
