The balcony and outdoor zones are usually the first to get the once over, and some of these divine outdoor cushions from Moteef are just what the decor doctor ordered!

Is your Home P*ssing you Off?

There’s no other way to say it; sometimes you look around your home and feel positively peeved off with it. Every inch of it is driving you batty – and if you see one more image of an over-styled family home in your fave interior design mag you just might go postal. So, your home is grinding your gears. Here’s how to fall in love with it again!

The Block 4

The most disappointing week on The Block yet!

What a disappointing week it was on The Block Glasshouse. The living room is hands-down my fave room of the house and four out of the five teams created dud spaces – and then felt offended when qualified judges called them out on it.

Jonathan Adler on Embracing Ugly Decor

I’ve long had an admiration for American designer Jonathan Adler. His irreverent approach to design and willingness to experiment makes him one of the most iconic creatives of our time.

I go cuckoo for colour when it comes to interior design, so it should come as no surprise that I almost had to call a medic when I cast my eyes over these images of Matisse Beach Club. It has got to be the country’s most colourful venue – with a Miami cabana aesthetic I’m positively losing my mind over! Let’s take a look inside this decor delight!

With all the kitchen drama going down on The Block this week (don’t get me started!), I thought it might be nice to keep calm and carry on by showcasing the gorgeous kitchen renovation of TLC reader Connie Sharpe. I’ve featured her living room on the blog before and am blown away by her eye for design. This kitchen before and after just goes to prove how good the eye really is!
