She is a mum to 2 boys Jack and Alfie, lives in Yorkshire, England, is an Investment Director, is a lover of interior design and is now a blogger. And she is the Queen of Maximalism!!! Nicola loves art, wallpaper, colour, patterns, fake plants, refinishing furniture, dark walls, and her made.com green sofa. Her home is cozy, inviting, family-friendly, fun, functional and total eye-candy. Love her home and love her. Thanks so much for wanting to reciprocate the favour and share your home with my readers Nicola! (Check out her post on my home here).

Dark side

My love for British kitchen designers deVOL is no secret. It's no surprise that I'm smitten by their latest design for this Petersham cottage. Dark, atmospheric, almost other worldly, memorable.

A beach house on the Costa Brava

When the location is this amazing and the view is to die for, when the house is simple in its bones and that's a good thing, when all you want is a place to gather and make wonderful family holiday memories then this might just be the house for you. The house is on the Costa Brava in Spain and the sympathetic restoration and renovation by Nook Architects allows the house to remain true to its traditional, mediterranean origins while providing a stylish, contemporary living space.

Of course now this sofa has gone to its new home I find myself completely drawn to green and red 😂. Entirely predictable of course, always so fickle! The Lichtenstein dog poster we bought when we first went to the Guggenheim in New York, even though it's only a poster it has such great memories and emotions associated with it - including being our first large scale artwork back in the day. It's still a favourite, I've always been mad for Lichtenstein and I always felt this one was "me" in a nutshell! . . . . #nzhomeswithstyle #theotherkemphouse #sassyhomestyle #allthingsmetric #colourmyhome #currentdesignsituation #myeclecticmix #moreismoredecor #cornerofmyhome #howivintage #pocketofmyhome #midcenturyhome #thisiswhyithriftshopeveryday #mycuratedaesthetic #societyofdesign #myhomevibe #acribofmyown #howyouhome #vintagefurniture #midcenturymodern #dtipetsonfurniture #bohoismyjam #showmeyourboho #bohointerior #fearlesshome #eclectichome

Stoked to have had this room picked for #gallerywallhashtag. Coincidentally I recently blogged in defence of the gallery wall, since I rediscovered my love for them. We hung this wall using Velcro 3M strips so we could easily make little adjustments to get them lined up. I’m not generally a fan of 3M but it works here! . . .

Stalking in Sydney 2

My second apartment today is just a suburb or two away in Waterloo. Co-incidentally (or not) it is also by SJB Architects. A smaller, more intimate space over two levels with a moody palette and beautiful stone floors. The fact that it is a short stroll to the fabulous dining and shopping of the Danks Street precinct makes it even more appealing. Link here while it lasts.
