Clever ideas for a small bedroom.

Do you have a troublesome storage problem? Is the answer yes? Well you’re not alone!

I was called in for a project to help a family, earlier last year,  looking for exactly to solve this problem. With a baby on the way, the family wanted as much extra storage as possible!!!They wanted bunk beds, extra storage for books and toys, and a double bed for guests and a walk-in closet to clothes!  As you see with the pictures below I think we managed to get everything in.

The hidden away double bed underneath the bunk beds rolls out very easy. The built-in shelves at the end of each bunk gives good space for the books and toys, in easy reach. And the little walk-in closet at the end of the bed makes for easy access to hang all clothes and storage for other things. An advantage with built-in furniture it opens up the floor area for play and games for an active family.

Have to say a big thank you to the fabulous clever John Johnsen, the builder. None of this would ever have been able to do without his positive ‘YES!’ he can fix it attitude. I like to hear a Yes! He’s a good man and would recommend him to anyone wanting home building jobs!

Black and White

Our home is an extension of whom and what we are. So what we do and have in our homes shapes and influences our look on life, our mood and every day’s efficiency. So when redecorating or refurnishing, do it with happiness. Do it with style and confidence!

Love the dark door frame and the clean lines of this hallway. Black and white are always a very cool combination!

Happy week everyone:-)



Good as Gold!

GOLD is going to be hot hot hot this year in interior. Guaranteed!  So whether you sling gold together with white and pastels or rock it up in dark rooms you’ll be creating a space that oozes with style.  I think I’ll be opting for a spray can and blitzing up a few old vases or the like. An addition of wallpaper or a mirror in gold would be stunning. Whatever you do –do it with confidence and have fun!

Sometimes we have to go outside our comfort zone to achieve something awesome.  And painting walls in dark charcoals, sexy inky blues or black can just be the thing to create that absolute amazing space in your home. Follow your instinct and your heart…heres some inspiration for the weekend!

Awesome…now I know there are a lot of people out there who would just die thinking of painting their walls black but it just has this magical and amazing effect on a room. A lot of interior designers would totally disagree with me but I think it can make a room bigger widening the space not making it smaller, with thought for combining the ceiling and walls in together.  It’s an incredibly bold colour oozing with self-confidence.

What do you think?
