Never underestimate the power of neutrals

Beige, white, gold, tan, brass, brown, sand....all of these colours together make for such a warm, sophisticated and polished space. With the assemblage of gorgeous furnishings by the oh-so-talented Brian Paquette, this condo is a beauty.

Pared back stalking

Real estate stalking in the hills above the ocean at Lorne in Victoria. An interior pared back. Simple style. Not too much. Just enough luxury and space. Lots of space. A little bit linen, a little bit french, a little bit casual elegance, a lot Aussie bush. And a view, such a lovely view. Not what I would call me usual taste but add just a little more boho, some art ... I'd move right in. Such beautiful surroundings. So much potential.  (Just wish that some of the images weren't stretched.) Link here.

Reader request - bedroom with beige 

I have 2 reader requests for you guys today, and this first one comes from Kayla: I was wondering if you have any inspiration on how to combine beige and grey in one room - particularly in the bedroom. We have a custom-made beige built-in wardrobe (there when we moved in) that we can't afford to replace. I don't like it and so I've been stalling on decorating the bedroom since we moved in (over a year ago). I think I just need to work with it and so I'd like to mix in some greys to make it more contemporary. Any ideas? My first thought of course is paint it if you don't like it. If you're worried doing it yourself you could remove the doors and have them professionally sprayed. Otherwise, I think if it's a soft beige I think adding alot of light grey, some beige in your bedding, and hints of black and white would work. If it's a darker beige, I would maybe go for browns instead of grey. I found some photos that do both, including one with a black accent wall that you could consider to draw attention away from the wardrobe. The first photo is my favourite. Jewel toned accents (you could do more than a couple purple pillows) bring in that needed pop of colour. Hope this helps!
