Thanks to up-cycling and repurposing trending right now a quick Pinterest search will unearth hundreds of ways to repurpose old doors. I love exploring people’s creative thinking, there are some clever people out there and a few of my favourite repurposed projects are shown above. Fortunately old doors are generally in abundance at recycle or recovery yards and you can usually pick them up quite cheaply.

This picture is my absolute favourite and, I think, pure genius. Continue reading

DIY Inspo: Creative Walls

A creative wall project has been on my radar for some time and I am currently deciding on which wall and what style. I am not personally a huge fan of plain colour block painted feature walls but there is something I love about a wall feature created with art, patterns and exposed textures such bricks, wallpaper, murals and wood etc. If you are in Australia and have watched any of the home reno reality TV shows, such as The Block or House Rules, you will no doubt have noticed the use of these different mediums. I think creating such walls requires taking risks, and the confidence to be bold, but the results are worth it. Here are a collection of ideas I have been admiring, browsing and inspired by. I will keep you posted with my creative wall outcomes!

Inspiration: Scandi & Nordic Style Crush

Do you stick to one defined style for your home? Do you merge multiple styles? One problem faced when you are fascinated obsessed with interior decoration and design is that you really can love and appreciate so many different styles. The possibilities and options are endless. Minimalism, industrial, modern, vintage, luxe, eclectic – they all offer something special for the right space and environment. Some mix, some don’t. With care you can create your own unique, perfect blend.

Sometimes I will crush over a certain look for a brief moment but then there are certain styles that just always makes me go ‘ooooo and ahhhhh!’ This is how I feel about the Nordic/Scandinavian style. It makes me feel relaxed and calm; it’s one of my absolute faves and I love that it lends itself easily to repurposed or upcycled pieces. I have handpicked some pics for your lusting. If you crave more you will find some links to some lovely blogs at the end of the post.

Whether you want to call it teal, turquoise, peacock, emerald, seagrass or even bahaman bliss (I’m continuously fascinated by the names on paint chip cards and wonder how they come to get their names!) there is no denying that this colour has been trending for a while. I’m not surprised, it’s beautiful and it complements so many other colours; especially pink, bronze, grey and even bolder colours such as red and yellow, as seen below, work. Continue reading
