DIY - Coastal Style Chest With Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint


One of the fun things about being a blogger is the opportunity to test new products and when it comes to something new in the field of paints, I get really excited. A New Zealand company, Voodoo Molly have created a range of paints for the purpose of decorating furniture and have a gorgeous palette of colours. Keen to put their paints to the test I came up with a makeover for an old Rimu trunk.

A Hop, Skip and a Jump From the Sea Lies a Beautiful New England Style Home


I am sorry for my absence this week, an extended Easter break is my only excuse.

A Kaleidoscope of Easter Egg Inspiration

In NZ it is a long Easter weekend and even though it is the tail end of summer, it is still beautiful weather and most people will be heading to the beach. I am not doing anything special but for Easter I may have a go at making the truffle eggs I discovered. With all the Easter inspiration I found, it is possible to make your own chocolate eggs, ice some ombre cookies, make some cute family photo eggs and lots more...

Texture Rules In This Balboa Island Home


I have been a fan of Blackband Design for some time now, they have a fabulous way with colour and pattern and a many of their interiors are coastal inspired which is a style I am growing to love dearly. Successful interior design has to be the perfect balance of colour, pattern and texture and Blackband always get it right.
