Lovely Links + Things

Just thought I would pop in today and share some lovely links and finds from the internet this week.

Yvette of The Stylist Splash has me inspired to forage in my neighbourhood for blooms, after she did just that on her walk the other day. Wrapping these beauties up for her Mum’s birthday. Stunning huh? I love making fresh bouquets as gifts. I did some here you may remember and here are some tips on making your own if you are feeling a little crafty!

Feature Friday: South African Beach House

Hello! If you’re new to my Feature Friday posts this is where I love to take you for a home tour. Today I thought we would pretend for a moment we are salty, sunned out and relaxing on the hilltop of this South African beauty. We can only dream right?

When I came across this South African Beach House it transported me to instant holiday mode.

A home designed to take in the beautiful ocean view from every aspect.

House Update: Whats been happening!

So whats been happening in my part of the world?

House planning, building and demolition!

The original timeframe we had in mind has long gone out the window - we are weeks behind where we would like to be. That's the nature of building and renovating though right?

Feature Friday: The home of Whitney Port

Hello! If you’re new to my Feature Friday posts this is where I love to show you inside real and celebrity homes. Today I thought we would take a peek inside Whitney Port's home and also swoon over her wedding photos...they are stunning!

Whitney Port may have rose to fame via reality TV on the show The Hills, but there is so much more to this stunning lady - Clothes Designer, Author, TV star and recently her newest title of Wife! 

Whitney tied the knot last November in Palm Springs and the wedding photos look nothing short of spectacular. Desert, chic, art deco, tropical - it surely is something so different. How incredible is the palm frond arbour at the alter?

Feature Friday: Phil & Amity's New Home

Hello! If you’re new to my Feature Friday posts this is where I love to show you inside real homes. I know you are going to love this home, it's a home that has been thought about and planned with precision, resulting in a Hamptons meets Edwardian meets Country stunner. 

This is the the home of Phil and Amity. 

Phil and Amity are household names after competing in two season of The Block. The talented duo reluctantly agreed to the 2013 The Block All Stars series, after not renovating since their last block experience - 10 years before. You wouldn't have known it though. The Husband and Wife team have a serious eye for style and design and were crowned the winners of the All Stars season.

 There is seriously nothing Amity cannot do. Singer, Writer, Composer and TV Personality, plus Mum to two gorgeous children Jamison and Poppy. Amity's career has taken her as far as New York, Europe and many places in between, performing and doing what she is best at - unleashing her creativity.

Phil and Amity have just finished building their dream home and Amity was so kind to take the time to chat to me about what they have been up to with their new build. It is a home that Amity has been dreaming of building her whole life and it is nothing short of spectacular.

Lets take a look inside shall we?

Exterior House Colours

Choosing your exterior paint colours on your home is a big deal.

I help customers choose roof colours for their home in my job. They come to us, wanting a new Colorbond roof installed and I love giving them advice on which colour to choose. I wrote about it here and thought it might be useful to share the tips here with you today too.

It is a big decision to make and a costly one if you get it wrong.

I always show my customers this image from Monier when they are choosing their roof colour. It is a great snapshot of what your eye actually sees when looking at the exterior of the home. The majority of what you see is your wall colour.
