Simple, understated, elegant - that's the ethos behind Storie.

A beautiful house, a beautiful base for exploring Melbourne, beautiful pieces, beautiful space for functions and workshops. Simply beautiful.

Oxford Larder

Don't get me wrong. I love the rain. After all, the summer has been so dry and these blustery showers are welcome. It's just that I'm racing home from work, side stepping puddles and cursing my cheap and inadequate umbrella. AND I need to find something for dinner. If only I had a cute little larder cafe around the corner from where I live. Something just like this. Dinner sorted and I can fit in a coffee and perhaps a slice of chocolate and pear cake while waiting for the latest shower to pass. Any excuse to linger just a little longer in this stylish little space. (Love that sink set up by the way.) Oxford Larder by Pipkorn & Kilpatrick.

Colour

Just because you have white walls doesn't mean you can't be surrounded by colour. Even better, just because you rent and have white walls which you can't paint, doesn't mean you can't do colour with style and flair. So much inspiration from this property styled by one of my favourite Melbourne homewares shops Fenton & Fenton.

Living in the shop

I was going to title this post "Working on a Sunday" but hang that for an idea! I want to live in this place not work there! Like a boudoir for their retail retinue all with the ever present, all enveloping waft of heaven's scent, Jo Malone - Paris by Marion Collard.

A visit to The Modern Shop

My favourite Ottawa shop for modern home decor goodness is The Modern Shop. I have visited this shop on more occasions than I could ever count and have spent more money here than I care to calculate. :) The other day owner Michael Shaikin suggested the husband and I stop by for a visit as he had just finished a makeover of the shop - he didn't need to twist my arm! Some walls painted black, floors painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine (like my dining room - WOOT!), and super fabulous and funky wallpaper (Studio Job Alt Deutsch Wallpaper by NLXL)...it's fresh and fun and looks fantastic! Plus he used my wallpaper/painter guy who is amazing so Mike owes me a serious discount on that Moooi rug I ordered I think for hooking him up. ;)

It was tough to photograph the pink floors properly in this light but the photo above is a decent attempt. Looks gorgeous with the Era Lounge Chair by Normann Copenhagen

Tom Dixon accessories. SO HOT. 

Jonathan Adler accessories. SO FUN.
