on the quest for the perfect piece

Can you believe it is August? We are marching through winter which is a lovely feeling! But I must confess, We have not had many cold days here in Noosa (sorry to rub it in my friends down south), just last week we had a temp of 29. Crazy! but beautiful to enjoy.

Do you often love searching for the perfect piece of furniture? Are you the hunter through endless treasures of vintage stores looking for something perfect to bring home to add to your space? Or do you love hunting for the piece of already loved Vintage piece? I love both hunting situations, but I do lean more towards finding the old and creating it into the new look. I love mixing modern with vintage style into my home, the look always interesting.

It does not matter what way you lean, This is perfect for you all to enjoy. I am excited to be involved with Feast Watson Re-love Project for another year along with 6 other amazing Australian Designers.

We have all Re-loved and transformed a piece of furniture with our own personal touches - for a good cause. From a baby cot, mantle, retro school desk and a side board.
Now, this is great News for you all! As of the 25th August, you can bid via Ebay to take home any of your favorite pieces. So, the hard work has already been done for you.
The fabulous cause is raising money for the Salvos Stores.

Before you go, below is my journey of creating my Tropical setting, Prefect for any time you need to relax. A little bit of Noosa style for your home.

A perfect summer look

Now the days are getting shorter and we want to feel more of the summer sun, this home will bring back that summer feeling.
This Noosa Waters home, right on the water front was such a delight to style. Not only the large open space but that out door fire area is a lovely feature. This home was designed by the talented Frank Macchia that created something fabulous, from the large windows to that amazing pool, this home has such a massive style factor but with the family feel.
I was so lucky to style this home with the amazing Anastasia Kariofyllidis to capture every space through her lens.
Here are some of my favorite images from this summer home, with more on my 'styling' page for you to see more!

I love styling homes, not only for Australian magazines for all to see in print but for customers selling their homes.
Creating a style in a home is my passion, if you too would like help creating something amazing in your family home or holiday space, please email or call for a personalised quote.
Happy Days
