“The Hampton project was a total renovation of an existing 1920’s Californian Bungalow in a Heritage Overlay precinct. It included a second storey addition, total internal update of all rooms, inground pool and landscaping and garage.”

And when I say Hampton I mean the suburb of Hampton in Melbourne. The renovation was purposely for resale but that didn’t stop Michelle Hart of Bask Interiors from creating the dream family home with a Hamptons with a modern twist interior.


Understated luxury in an Ibizan villa

Posted on Mon, 3 Feb 2020 by KiM

Amid the hills and forest of Ibiza lies a newly built white-washed villa that exudes comfort and is understatedly luxurious. Designed by South African La Grange Interiors, this modern finca is a magical escape for an urban couple with a neutral palette and an incredibly beautiful exterior. (Photos: Elsa Young)

I didn’t tell you the ending to the chocolate balloon story did I?! {scroll back a few posts if you don’t know what I’m talking about!} Well whilst we were cleaning chocolate from every single surface in the kitchen, someone {won’t mention any names🐶!!} found the burst balloon, covered in Dairy milk and thought it would be a tasty snack! We didn’t realise this until 2 days later when we were scooping up his 💩🎈. So we had a very lucky escape, he’s been having extra cuddles and VIP treatment ever since! Who am I kidding, he’s always been totally spoilt, there’s only one boss in this house. Does your pet rule the roost?!🐶🥰 .

Here’s Teddy casually reading a cookery book in my office! Enjoyed two lovely events in the last couple of days. James and me headed to Newcastle to attend the @northern_quarters interiors event – I took part in a panel discussion on Turning Your Passion for Interiors into a Business (ok James watched me and then went record shopping …) It was very scary, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and then last night went to the Lowry with my bud Zoe and watched my favourite Podcast Queens @dollyalderton and @pandorasykes in The High Low Experience. What a brilliant night shared with fantastic women. Just loved their funny, intelligent and hugely entertaining ramblings. #suburbansalon #thehighlowtour #mural #officedesign #officedecor #homeoffice #homeofficeideas #workspacegoals #workspacedesign #workspaceinspiration #muralwall #stellarspaces #homeinspiration #myvintageabode #colourmyhome #rockininteriors #apartmenttherapy #myhomevibe #ukinteriors #interiorstyling #myeclecticmix #sorealhomes #interiormilk #styleithappy Ad wallpaper #gifted @muralswallpaper

From me: I managed to get all the cats in a photo without even trying. This is snack time at my house. And semi-feral Frankie loves weekends laying in bed, even if I’m there.
