Check out Urban Road’s 2014 Spring Summer Collection

In what has to be the biggest first world problem of all time, I can’t decide which pieces from Urban Road’s 2014 Spring/Summer collection are my favourite. I have two spots at home that I need to fill with art – in my bedroom and in my living room – and I’m facing the divine yet difficult…

Grand Designs Live Sydney

Win Double Passes to Grand Designs Live Sydney!

Last year’s Grand Designs Live event has a hoot. I attended and was blown away by the sheer size of the space, the amount of exhibitors who were displaying and the local, design-world celeb-spotting there was to take part in.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much time I spend at my desk. Actually, I can tell you; loads, loads and loads. There have been some weeks where I’ve realised I’ve not left the house in three or four days, resembling those kids from Flowers in the Attic and losing all social skills…

The Best Flooring Options for Every Room in your Home

Choosing the right flooring for your home is no walk in the park. Usually, from what I’ve experienced, you tend to discover that you have the wrong type long after it’s been laid (and the red wine spill refuses to leave the carpet). Today’s post is going to make your flooring fumbles a thing of…

The Kambrook Blitz2Go: A Kitchen Essential for Spring

I just found out this week that I’m going on a summer holiday. Naturally, the tailspin ensued starring the realisation that I’d not done enough exercise throughout winter and ate my way through at least 57,363 pizzas.

The Block Apartment 6 Max and Karstan Terrace

The Block Apartment 6: Remaining Room Reveals

The final rooms of The Block apartment 6 have been revealed, with a mixed review from the judges. Not knowing which teams transformed which spaces kept an air of mystery to their walk-throughs, but it still resulted in critiques I didn’t necessarily agree with.
