Favourite Pink Painted Walls

I have collected images of pink walls to entice and intrigue. NEVER would I have thought I’d have a pink wall! Yes it will initially be a tiny slither of a wall in my office but look out boys if I like it it’s travelling to other parts of the house!

A bit about Dwell South Coast 2016

Our Business - Your Choice

Everything about decorating your home is personal. Do you shop thrifty, buy local, do you like IKEA, is it handmade, is it high end all the way and is it the 'real deal' such as original artwork {see top right of moodboard for local South Coast Artist Becky Guggisberg}. Personally I like to mix it up - oh but having said that i don't buy 'high end'. Anyway it's not about me! 

In a nutshell our business is about helping and guiding Clients through the sea of choices in colour, furniture & home accessories to create a comfortable home that reflects them - easy! No it's not!

So what do you, as a Client, choose and what do you buy? You figure that bit out with us guiding you through consultations, receiving our Dwell Decorating Plan or Colour & Interior Specifications Report. Depending on the depth of detail you require & how much time is allocated to your Project, the range of research & travel depends on the cost.  We don't make you buy things - but we have very good reasons for the path we've taken in compiling reports for you & love it when the Client says 'I'm doing it all' !

Palm Leaf Wallpaper

Palm leaf wallpaper is going up on walls all over the country it's a trend we love and hope never fades (along with the wallpaper)!   It is bold, brave and beautiful giving a home that wonderful tropical breezy feel, a bit like being on holiday every day.  It suits many different properties from coastal to country, traditional to modern.  It can be a bold addition to the entry of a home giving a taste of what's to come.  Try it in small rooms for maximum impact or larger rooms with panelled half walls to to tone it down a little.  Here's a few of our favourites...

Holiday Home Decor

Not all holiday homes are the same

We {family} travelled down to Mornington Peninsula for a 4 day 70th birthday celebration. What a hoot! But regardless of all the beautiful food & delicious wine we were bowled over by our fantastic accommodation.

We don't write reviews, we just write about what we like. So with this in mind here are some words to describe 'Ti Tree Dunes'....retreat, relaxed, private, a true escape, 10 acres, coastal scenery and architectural masterpiece!  There you have it.

So on to the decor which of course is what we as decorators love to look at! And WOW is what I said!

The home {this definitely feels like a home} is beautifully decorated. It doesn't feel as if everything was bought at the same time, from the same shop. There's a relaxed, country coastal theme with some Mark Tuckey pieces, I spied some Bonnie & Neil linen along with coasters & other items I suspect were purchased locally at the gorgeous Sorrento shops.

The bed, the linen, the lights and OH that view! You could only be happy lying here :) By the way the TV was not turned on {why would you} but apparently there was Foxtel too {care factor zero}. The bedrooms were calm and relaxed with soft linen and nice decorative features. The rooms that were suitable for kids were decorated as if the owners lived there on weekends - with nice prints & toys ... no kid could complain.

So why didn't I use my own photos? The main reason is that I had people in all my shots eating & drinking wine making the house look messy. Jump on to stayz.com.au to check out the finer details, availability & dollar amount. This is also available on airbnb.com.au
