Red Lip

Sometimes you just need a the pop of a red lip to finish off your outfit...especially on a big night out.

I've been cleaning out the 'workroom' today and needed some glamorous inspiration to keep me going.

Home Style... Elegant Restraint in Neutral Bay, Sydney

Having spent some time in Japan, the owners of this rental property sought to capture the lines, perspectives, calm and the spaciousness of Japanese homes.

Grounding the property by taking it to the boundary,  architects Downie North worked at opening it up to the lushness of the garden, seeking to capture the warmth of the suns rays indoors, and enabling spots of seclusion and reflection when needed.

Clean lines, angular perspectives, elegant furnishings and muted soft colour bring a sense of ease, comfort and privacy throughout to such a bustling area of Sydney.

Monday Colour

I was just admiring these images of the gorgeous Carolyn Murphy for the December 2014 issue of Harpers Bazaar UK taken by David Slijper.

Subtle, fresh, softly coloured and dewy skinned... just the way I like to start a new week.

I love the lilac eyeshadow and the pale pink matte lip below for a summer look don't you?  And although I'm not one for a bright lip, even the fuschia pink in the last pic has it's time and place...

Enjoy your start to the week...

No words are required really.

Home Style... Modern Makeover in Melbourne

Clean, fresh, bright, modern... that's what is evident in this recent makeover of a workers cottage dating back to the 1870's in inner city Melbourne.  

You know the drill, a row of cottages minutes from the cbd, remnants of stables out the back of the house and lots of tiny rooms inside.

A meeting of minds with an architect sympathetic to the rundown building with a vision to expand and bring it into modern day.  Loads of natural light, white walls, light woods and a fabulous hidden balcony, this lovely renovation makes for a great family home.

Gosh, it makes me want to redo my garden too!

Simple Monday

Streamline your look with some refined jewellery; a simple choker here, an elegant double hanging earring there or some organic lines on a cuff.

Some great transition looks for the months ahead of Othilia Simon photographed by Emma Tempest.

I'm looking forward to some simplicity too...
