There is a great wide hallway after the main entrance which is screaming for a vignette. My brother in law McLean Stephenson is a photographer and we are hoping to include some of his work in the house. Here is my first idea for the hallway. The Bludot strut console fades into the background and the photograph does ALL the talking
The main living area has garnered the most attention so far, as it should, and we have managed to make some of the major furniture decisions. My favourite is the one above, what we have ended up with is a bit of a blend of them all. The bench above is the Web bench from Freedom which is now a bed end for the master and we just bought the sofas in the last image from Orson & Blake plus the 2 occasional chairs from Spence & Lyda. Next up is the rug, coffee table and sides to pull the space together.
Here are some coffee table options, thoughts?

Just a week before I gave birth I was asked to take on the decorative transformation of a friend's new 5 bedroom home. Despite being a little nervous about how I would juggle being a new mum and not knowing how much work would be involved (the deadline for completion is December 1st), I felt like I couldn't pass this opportunity up. Luckily for me George has been a bit of a dream and I have been able to work pretty hard on this project (I also invited my sister in law Alice to share the load with me which has made the job immeasurably more enjoyable). Breast feeding is also my friend as I communicate with the owner (she's in London) and scour the net for delicious product in the wee hours of the morning. I will update you with the progress of the transformation and share purchases and mood boards etc.
For now, here are the real estate shots as it is currently furnished, I'll post more on Friday so pop back in!
This is my fantasy lounge room (maybe minus the art on the wall) those Almond Zigmund sculptures add the exact right amount of Claudia to the room, as do the Milo Baughman tables. Click here for the full tour.
Hello October! God how quick did that happen? My small fry is now 1 month old, that definitely happened too quickly, he's already getting so big. This month Peep Loves Autumn de Wilde's reflector sculptures (above) and in the same vein, this reflector chair below by Pitaya Designs Random 8 chair. I loved watching this '73 questions' video at Vogue of Reese Witherspoon for the house perve (watch the whole series here), Country Road Active is on it's way!
The Dalo cushions from Country Road (above), this gorgeous mid century mini desk from West Elm, these Fleur Jacobs plug in lights from The Minimalist, this insane Louis Vuitton Dauphine wallet from Blue Spinach, the Saffy table lamp and Cup floor lamp from Domayne, this tour of SJP's townhouse (it's incredible, completely in love)
and how could I not include a pic of my #georgeteddy in peep loves? He's in his sugar glider outfit and all I do is go in and a) check he's not dead, and b) stare at how cute he is. I want to slice off his cheeks and fry them up and eat them

My small fry arrived 8 days early (selfish, I had a pedi, wax and hair appointment booked that week! First lesson, I have no control) It was a very painful experience to say the least but George Teddy squeezed out at 4am on September 1st and I'm very proud, please find below a few pics of his tiny little warm body. Don't fear, the blog will not turn into a baby fest/mummy blog but I can't promise I won't give you little snippets of him because I'm completely obsessed. Cleverly, my husband got me these Kelly Wearstler brass lips to commemorate the occasion - so perfect! You may find my posts a little thin on the ground for the next few weeks but I have an exciting project I'm working on and hope to take you on the ride starting this month so watch this space peeps x
