The Arch









Archie is the cutest 5 year old ever (biased?) - he is a real boys boy and is obsessed with superhero's and sports! He also loves Lego and want's to display everything he makes. Archie loves football and barracks for Carlton and so loves to hang up team photo's and posters of Juddy .... much to my horror ... Let It Go ...


Millie Moo






What can I say about my happy free spirited 'fly by the seat of your pants' 8 year old daughter Millie! She is a real character that's for sure! She doesn't feel the need to keep a neat room at all and is only interested in filling up her room with Barbie's, American Girl dolls and Harajuku perfume!!! As a self confessed neat freak I find this very frustrating! As you can see Millie's bookcase and vanity are full to the brim with all the things she loves and I wouldn't have it any other way - that's Millie and her room reflects her personality to a tea!


Ruby Two Shoes






My gorgeous eldest daughter Ruby is now 10 - she despises anything girlie and only wants 'cool stuff'. Ruby is a budding little artist and she often comes home from her art classes with amazing art pieces which she wants to display in her room - so I've tried to incorporate them into the room so that we are both happy! She also has lots of knick knacks which she likes to display (thankfully she has her yellow enclosed bookcase) so it's always a compromise between my obsession with decorating and the kids having a space to express themselves - I think I'm getting better at it as time goes by ... I think ...

Boys Bunks






I created this boys space for two spunky little boys aged 5 and 3. The custom made bunk beds has a double mattress down the bottom and a king single mattress up the top to house lots of sleepovers! One of my favourite spaces is the banquette seating which I had made with pull out drawers for toy storage - it's a gorgeous spot for the boys to read books and lounge around. Grey, black and grass green is such a great color scheme for boys of all ages I think - it can withstand even the teen years!!!

Polka Pad







Here a photos of a modern boys rooms I recently completed for a cool 8 year old - I think the pops of red really work well against the boyish grey textures and tones in the rest of the room.

Peachy Keen






One of my favourite girls tween rooms to date! I love the combination of peach and gold with soft neutral backdrops of oatmeal and taupe with dashes of birch wood - the perfect recipe I think!

Arrow Action




I'm really happy with how this masculine grown up space turned out - I think it will suit my tween footy obsessed client into his teens! The arrow shelves I found are a little bit of fun and is a great practical solution to housing collectibles - in this case it's The Simpsons figurines.

Expert Aviator








I really enjoyed creating this aviation inspired space for a spunky little 6 year old boy. I started the room with the Jet Fighter art print and created the room around that. The existing room had built in shelves on either side of the bed that were filled with toys and books and as a result looked very cluttered and messy so I had these custom felt boxes made to fit in them. I really love the RAPHY letter shelves which I found - perfect for lego men and all sorts of small knick knacks!
