What makes a dream home? 

I’m currently in the process of dreaming up my perfect home. It’s a bit early on but hey why not! Some girls spend years dreaming up their perfect wedding day. That wasn’t me. Heck I planned it all in the five months leading up to it. But my dream home… That’s something different. Maybe because your wedding is one day in your life whereas your home is something you will have for many years.

Pinterest is great for putting together some ideas in the form of a mood board. It also helps you source inspiration from different creatives all over the world.

I think it’s important to not take fashion trends too seriously. Whenever I read home and lifestyle magazines it’s all about changing up your house aesthetic based on a new trend that will really only be around for a couple of months. Your home is your sanctuary and a long term investment, so like your wardrobe, invest in pieces you love and can have around for many years.

It’s also worthy to focus your efforts on a spacious warm kitchen space that speaks welcoming, a decluttered bedroom, a central open lounge space and a killer bathroom.

Here are my must haves for a dream home:

  • High ceilings
  • Lots of white and natural light
  • A big lounge area
  • Open plan including a spacious kitchen with an island bench
  • An egg shaped free standing bath (alongside a killer bathroom with two basins – this is a must for me)
  • A walk in wardrobe with lots of shoe storage space. Somewhere I can hide with my girlfriends
  • Light timber floors
  • A pop of blue
  • Lots of greenery
  • Homey feels and meaningful art

What would make up your dream home?

Spring in Sydney

Spring is my favourite time of the year in Sydney. The days get longer, the air turns warmer and everyone starts to get that holiday vibe...

Spring has finally arrived in Sydney and oh boy it is so lovely! You can honestly feel the difference straight away. The air is slightly warmer, the sun lingers for longer and there are more people showing their faces to the sun.

Spring is my favourite time of the year – how can it not be, it’s when we got married. It also means we are getting closer to the end of the year. This means summer in Australia! There’s nothing like it. The beaches here are just divine when the warm weather kicks in.

We’ll be heading off again soon for another travel adventure to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary! How time passes.

Here are some snaps from some precious time I have been spending at home (also got to celebrate my birthday – hooray for cake!). For me home is Manly in Sydney. It’s my dream home – right by the sea surrounded by nature.

Enjoy xx

What’s your favourite season?

Autumn in Sydney 

Hello there! How have you all been? Thought I would share some happy snaps from the past month hanging around Sydney.

We have had exceptional weather lately and it really doesn’t feel like winter is three weeks away. I do love spending as much time as I can on the weekends exploring Sydney. It is such a unique part of the world and if you haven’t yet visited, add it to your list!

Sydney is the home to amazing beaches, local cafes and restaraunts, boutique shopping, the friendliest people in the world and an incredible location compromising of mountains, rivers, country and the sea.

Here are some snaps at my favourite local places

Where in the world have you spent your April / May?
