Styling with White Moss

When Leanne Moss of the gorgeous online home store, White Moss, recently asked me if I could help her with styling her home, I jumped at the chance. It’s no surprise that I am a big White Moss fan – their natural materials and neutral colour pallet are right up my style alley – and Leanne is just lovely too. Leanne has recently made some changes at their home and I was eager to jump in and help with styling a… Read more »

Office Interiors / Take one

When Brett, the owner of EngageME Consulting, approached me to design their new office space, I was as excited as I was nervous. This would be my first commercial design and installation, and for them it would be their first real office space, so a big milestone for both parties. Obviously I said yes and I am so glad I did. It’s been one of the most fun and rewarding projects I have worked on – and also the first project that I’ve taken… Read more »

Home office makeover

Over the past two weeks, I have shared mood boards on how to shop the IKEA Part Sale for your living room and bedroom. After sharing these tips with you all, I figured it was about time I put the sale to good use for myself. My home office has been in need of a change for some time and IKEA’s Part Sale presented a great opportunity to tick this one off the list. Whilst I loved the previous layout of my… Read more »

Baby girl nursery with all things cute & cuddly

Earlier this month, we installed a nursery in a beautiful Downtown Dubai apartment for the sweetest baby girl. She’s been sleeping in mum and dad’s room until now, but it was time for the big transition into her own space. Mum had a pretty good idea of what she wanted for the nursery – a calm and tranquil space for her daughter to grow into. A room design always has a starting point, and for this room, there was one particular feature that I had in… Read more »

Surprise room makeover

I’m so excited to show you this adorable room which we recently installed. The makeover was a surprise birthday gift for a sweet ten year old from her mum and dad. Mum sent me a video of the moment she revealed the room. Safe to say, it was one of those delightfully emotional moments. There were tears. The good kind. And for me, it was so rewarding to see the joy on her face. Kelsey is approaching her teen years and… Read more »

Girls room makeover

Kaitlyn’s room makeover

Finally, my five and a half year old has a big bed. Poor kid, has been in the running for a makeover for ages but for various reasons it kept being delayed and neglected. Then the Dubai Shopping Festival swung around and I spotted a gorgeous blush pink bed at an excellent sale price – it was the catalyst for my carpe diem revelation. And so I just ran with the whole idea from there. Rather oddly, the style of the bed is pretty… Read more »

Boys room E-design

Yesterday I got a peek at an almost finished boys room that is a result of an e-design I completed a few months ago. It’s always so exciting to see a design come to life and I thought you guys would enjoy having a look at a mood board along with it’s end result. Excuse the not so great pic taken on my phone. This room was designed for a little tot who will soon transition from a cot to a big boy bed, so the brief was to incorporate… Read more »

Christmas styling festive decor

A festive collaboration of Christmas styling

If you’ve been a regular around here for some time, you may recall the bloggers collaboration project I was involved in around this time last year. Blogging can be a bit of a solitary mission at times so I jump at the chance to work with like-minded creatives. Joining forces with my dear, and seriously talented friend, Linda at Live Loud Girl for another styled Christmas shoot was a no-brainer. Despite having our own distinctive styles, she and I have a shared love for… Read more »

Monochrome big boy room

Ethan’s monochrome makeover

Ethan’s room got a makeover last week! Despite being executed rather suddenly, plans for this had been in the making for a while. A few months ago, he fell in love with a monochrome mood board I had created for another boy his age and he asked if we could do something similar for his room. I’ve wanted to make changes to his bedroom for ages so it didn’t take much to convince me, and since then it’s been a regular talking point… Read more »

A lounge & dining room makeover

Hello my lovelies. This post is coming to you from South Africa, where I’m currently enjoying some cooler weather. The kids and I have escaped the Dubai heat for the (very long) summer school holidays. The last few weeks of the term felt like a constant rush so I am looking forward to some ‘quiet time’ in the African bush. Today I thought I’d share some images from a project I have been working on at an Arabian Ranches home. The project… Read more »

Gender neutral kids room makeover

I recently had the pleasure of working on an exciting decorating project with British mum-of-three-adorable-smalls, Dani Wilson. The lovely Dani is one mega multi-tasking mama. Not only is she a co-founder of Sassy Mama Dubai, she also runs a successful PR business and has founded a charity in Pakistan called the ZB Foundation, which provides free screening tests for all new born babies. When Dani got in touch to ask if I could assist with a full room makeover for her adorable little twins, Rio… Read more »
