Its no secret yellow is one of my favourite shades mixed with moody blues its the perfect pop of colour in these cooler months. Don’t we all need something to brighten out day!
An early start requires coffee (always) and a quick (healthy) breakfast – usually cereal and always a banana.Why not serve these up in your favourite shade! My usual morning routine is to get up, get dressed, eat breakfast and take our Boston Terrier Sophia for a walk, somehow she always manages to find the perfect hiding spot on the sofa amongst the cushions (she isn’t a morning person either) If I’m up super early for an early shoot call time I will make a Push the button coffee at home otherwise my preferred is Panama House – my Bondi regular morning pit stop – where I love a coffee and a chat with the locals.
Winter in Bondi is just as beautiful as summer, Its Australia’s most famous Beach and I love to call Bondi home. Its beautiful all year round and in winter just as so it’s just that the tones of the beach and ocean are deeper and more moodier. The beach isn’t always about summer and swimming (which I love) I love the ever changing shades of the sea and a little fossaking after the storm you never know what you might find, perhaps a fallen branch perfect for a vase at home.
A perk of being an interior Stylist is there are often flowers at home, left over from photo shoots often. I love the instant pick me up of popping fresh flowers into a vase at home – they need not be expensive. My favourite include Peonies and garden roses but just choose what looks best on the day, These water lilies caught my eye! Flowers are great for adding a little bit of cheer especially in the cooler months when things can feel a bit grey. Why do I love yellow you ask? well it such a fun happy colour, really it just adds a bit of sunshine to our home and makes me smile! Colour is a signature to my decorating style and you can’t underestimate the power of a pop of colour. Adding just a pop of colour is an easy way for those not brave enough to add a large splash to your space . So think small perhaps a cup a cushion or even a towel in the bathroom to add a little splash of colour. The best place to take colour inspiration you ask? I take my queues from nature. If you’re not sure and lack colour confidence take a look inside your wardrobe – if its a colour you like to wear chances are its a great colour to decorate with at home.
