Wallpaper magic!

It has been a while since I have written to you…

I've been extremely busy with some amazing homes, that I have the privilege, along with my business partner Laura, to decorate.

In one of these homes, we are decorating a gorgeous little girls room where we are using amazing wallpaper… (all will be revealed at a later date… stay tuned!)

That got me thinking of all the amazing wallpaper and decals that are available and the many creative ways you can use it to decorate kids rooms and nurseries…

this is the amazing magnetic wallpaper from Groovy Magnets

Stripes… Elegant!

Horsing around… Scandinavian Inspired!

There is so much awesomeness here...

A fave of mine… these are stickers that you add!

Another Scandi styled room!  pretty without prissy!

Aqua and burnt orange what a great combination...

Now this is so pretty… for a pretty princess… 

European influences here...

Sophisticated and cool!

These wall stickers are so fresh...

Miffy and spots!  Cuteness overload!

Hope this has been inspiring for you…

I will be featuring many rooms in weeks to come and if you want a theme or something specific just let me know!

Chat soon!

Patrick Dempey's Malibu home designed by Frank Gehry

Of course popular TV doc dubbed with McDreamy will have a Dreamy home...

Patrick Dempsey with wife Jillian, daughter Talula,
sons Sullivan and Darby, and Horton the dog!

The actor and his wife, Jillian, have adapted one of Frank Gehry's earlier pieces into a bright, vibrant, welcoming family home.

Dubbed "Tin House" by previous owners, the house was conceived in 1960

Vibrant light fills the entrance.

A vintage daybed and rug set the mood of the house

The kitchen features a concrete sink and counter tops

Can't help but notice the red knobs of the Wolf range!

The elegant yet casual living room has many timeless pieces along with some amazing artwork from Thomas Helbig along with sculpture by Jillian Dempsey.

Jillian Dempsey's sculpture studio has been designed to be used as both a creative space as well as a living space.

Love both the leather daybed and the Morrocan rug!

Recycled timber decking, surround the swimming pool...

The beautiful silver/green leaves of the olive tree, perfect shade!

Flower, herbs and vegetable are set in raised garden bed on recycle timber.

A vintage caravan as a green room! Insane! 

Hope you have enjoyed this gorgeous family house...

Teenage girls rooms!

As a mum of 2 teenagers, (1 of which is a girl)  let me tell you a few thing about decorating teenage girl rooms:

They spend a lot of time in there rooms...

So make sure that they love their rooms and they are surrounded by things they love!

Their bed has lots of pillows for them to chill, also to disguise the fact that they haven't made their bed!

They have a really comfy bed, lord knows they sleep a lot!

Because they spend a lot of time in there make sure they have a good desk, chair for study (or Facebook...)!

They are messy!

I guess that maybe the design of their room is a bit "relaxed" so it looks like its meant to be a little messy!

Their clothes/shoes/jewellery/bags/make-up is everywhere...

Again, storage boxes/containers/cupboards... every little bit helps... and if it can be designer (ie Tiffany/Hermes/Chanel packaging!), bonus... as no doubt it will be on Facebook/instagram/tumblr!
