The beauty of simplicity

, , , ,

Sometimes it’s all in the timing. Paths cross and things just happen for a reason. And that’s exactly how my latest project unfolded. Rewind to January when I was styling a wedding for 200 people on a gorgeous private property outside of Geelong. The next day as I rested my weary feet, I received a lovely email from Adam and Sarah the owners of the catering company – the wedding was the most beautifully styled event they had worked on, and would I please consider styling their recently renovated home. What a lovely way to start a project!

As I stepped into their tastefully renovated California bungalow, I was met with a beautiful blank canvas. The home had great ‘bones’ (as I like to refer to it), and just required the finishing touches to highlight the property’s elegant simplicity. As I toured the space with Sarah, I could see the rooms come together in my head; we decided on the colour palette then and there, and I was off…



The styling included soft furnishings and furniture pieces of Scandinavian influence – all carefully considered for both their look and purpose. The owners’ penchant for clean minimal styling coupled with the soft muted palette resulted in a tasteful, welcoming family home.

More details and images of the completed home can be viewed here in gt magazine.

Until next time xo
