I scavenged these arum lilies from a little forest by the side of the road. I will never have a career change as a florist, but they sure brighten up our bathroom on this grey day 🌿#lovethisweatherthough #bathroom #arumlilies #bestthings #interiors123 #encaustictile #tile #jatanainteriors #athome #tile #lilies #interiordesign #paintedcabinets #spring #blue #myhouse #housenerd

I'm sharing this beautiful kitchen renovation in Subiaco on @housenerd today - swipe right to see a 'before' photo. How awesome is it?! 🌟 It was designed for a client by interior designer Rachael Pearse, the very clever (and also just super-nice!) brains behind @staple_design. I love the combination of painted cabinets, jarrah benchtops and brass pendants - it's so pretty but so practical and liveable 😍 You can see the full before and after story at the link in my profile β˜•οΈ Design & styling by @staple_design πŸ“Έ @meghan_plowman #kitchen #kitchendesign #interiors123 #renovation #herringbone #parquetry #stapledesign #meghanplowman #housenerd #shakercabinets #hamptonsstyle #kitchenremodel #beforeandafter #houzz #custom #jarrah #interiorsblog #pendants #brass #bentwoods #sage #sagegreen

I came up with a start-up idea this morning. I was tired (little man decided to rise early 😨) I was super grumpy, Little Nerd was grumpy, the house was gross and I just wanted a giant coffee. Enter 'Coffee n Clean' πŸ˜Žβ˜•οΈ Where you can hire a cleaner on a one-off basis and they rock up to your house an hour later WITH a coffee for you (or they travel in a combination coffee/cleaning van) and stay for an hour or two πŸš™ 🌟 Perfect for tired parents, people whose in-laws are suddenly coming over or when you've had a party and feeling too hungover to face the thought of cleaning up the mess 🀒 And there'll be an app so you don't have to talk to anyone pre-coffee. I told Mr Nerd about what an ingenious, entrepreneurial wife he had and he was like meh I think your idea has already been done πŸ™„ But I like it! Ended up cleaning my own kitchen in any case with some gorgeous new natural cleaning products from @whistleandsqueak (created by a very clever Perth mum) and they smelled good enough to drink (don't). #daydreaming #coffeeandclean #startup #kitchen #peonies #home #house #benchtops #app #whistleandsqueak #entrepreneur #cleaning #eco #naturalcleaning #cleaner #interiors123 #ecoclean #farmhousesink

Picked up some of my favourite flowers from my favourite florist @floralarmy this afternoon. How anyone could ever walk past this doorway and resist the urge to step in, I don't know! They did our wedding flowers back when @floralarmy had just started and I am always reminded of Alicia doing our flowers every time I see wisteria - the one in our garden bloomed the day before our wedding and she could incorporate it into my bouquet. Made me feel so lucky! πŸ’ #septemberwedding #bouquet #weddingflowers #eastfremantle #georgestreet #spring #perthflorist #bestofperth #shopsmall #shoplocal #fremantle #floralarmy #perthflorist #wisteria #perthflowers #blooms #georgestreet

I love it when people give me a plant as a gift (@carlywatson_417 😜) And on Sunday I found these six cane baskets for $20 at the Melville markets and so I snatched them all up! How cute would they be as pressies? (if I don't hoard them all myself πŸ€”) If you're my bud and it's your birthday/housewarming soon, get ready to feign surprise πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜œπŸ€— #secrethoarder #markets #plantsofinstagram #ficus #plantlove #cane #vintage #houseplants #housenerd #green #jungalow #plants #planters #devilsivy #urbangarden #plantcollector #presents #pocketofmyhome #crazyplantlady

The best things in life are free! 😜 We've been looking for a toddler bed for Little Nerd because he's close to outgrowing his cot and I just found this cute cane and pine bed on the side of the road! Oh I love verge hunting. Going to leave the cane natural but paint the frame maybe black, duck egg blue or like a dirty olive grey-green πŸ–€ I also found a buttery leather Chesterfield the other day, which at first seemed like fate because I sold ours on Gumtree and had been kinda regretting it.... but there's a limit to what you can fit in an i30 and literally as I was standing there two more cars stopped and asked I was taking it. I let it go. But the bed is going to look super cute in his little room! 😝 #worldsmostawkwardposer #orshouldiblamemyinstagrammother πŸ€”#vergehunting #thrift #cane #bed #thrifted #toddlerroom #upcycle #rattan #scavenger #scanvengedhome #thriftedhome #home #interiors123 ##wastenot #roadside #verge #timber #paint #relove #diy #dork

Design is definitely a process that needs a lot of thought and time... but it is so exciting. On my blog today I’m sharing just what we’re doing to our house for our @scyonwalls external makeover. I looove black walls and with a mixed materials look in mind, we’ll be using a palette of Scyon Axon in a deep black or charcoal teamed with Scyon Stria (in probably a light warm grey – haven’t 100% decided on the colour for this bit yet!) and a touch of cedar πŸ–€ This stunning pic of The River Shack from @threebirdsrenovations is actually on my Pinterest board – I love how modern and clean the black Scyon Stria looks with all the green and I think the black will make our gardens pop! 🌿🌱Link to the story is in my profile if you’d like to see our renovation design and where we're at! 😊🏚 #fixerupper #renovation #renovationblog #scyon #mixedmaterials #blackwalls #makeover #renovationblog #renos #threebirdsrenovations #ad #blackpaint #exteriordesign #australianhomes #houselove #housenerd #dulux #homeinspo #homeimprovement #cladding

My new @housenerd blog is live today!! 😝 This has been a while coming so I am so excited. You can check it out at the link in my profile 😊 It still needs a few tweaks to finalise but I would appreciate any feedback/suggestions in the meantime. I always want to improve the experience for people who come to the blog so if there's any particular functionality etc you like to see in a blog, let me know your feedback. #stilllearningwordpress #slowly #butitsawesome #newblog #housenerd #blog #blogger #interiors123 #graphicdesign #websitedesign #interiorsblogger #plants #wp #newsite #redesign #rebrand #newthings #2017 #plantislife

Anyone else have a partner who gets an expensive quote to fix something and then goes, "Ahh... I can do it myself"? Such is us. We got a quote for $14k to fix our roof from a company where the guy got really annoyed that we didn't want to sign on the dotted line then and there... but it was too much πŸ’°for us to make a decision on the spot. Two days later, Mr Nerd had scaffolding up and was fixing the roof himself with his dad. A week later (when he was already mid-work) we eventually got another quote back from another company... $2,500! Such a big difference between quotes! 😱 Yes, the cheapest quote is not always necessarily the right one. But it shows that sometimes asking around can help you save. The second company were a lovely family-owned business, no frills, no salesmen, no fuss, really nice people and great work. Anyway our roof resto is nearly done now and then we'll be able to start our @scyonwalls cladding makeover - I can't wait 😝 #housenerd #renovating #yesthatisabutterfly #spotnala #house #crapshackreno #roofrestoration #blogger #garden #picturewindow #70s #cladding #roof #reno #renovation #DIY #fixerupper #perthproperty #handyman

32! πŸ˜„πŸŽ‚ Also realised that Mr Nerd and I have now been together so many years we are starting to look like the same person, like Jon and Yoko. Soon he will be a short brown woman πŸ‘§πŸ½ I met my husband when I was 14 (and a total nerd 😜) in my Year 10 Science class. He told me to go naked to the Year 10 dinner dance and I thought he was cheeky and rude. Got together ten years later and now he's still cheeky and rude.... but he's funny. #funnyisimportant #teamtara #birthday #birthdaydinner #subiaco #housenerd #highschool #saturday #thirties #night

Give me all the plants 🌱🌿🌡😍 Love this array of planters at the very cool @creation_landscape_supplies #perthplants #perthplantshop #indoorplants #shelfie #shop #interiors #jungalowstyle #planthunter #freo #garden #green #shelves #crazyplantlady

A tired dog is a happy dog 🐢 When Nala was younger I would have to run her 6-7km every morning otherwise she'd annoy me all day and then she would nap. Then by the time I’d finished work for the day she’d be raring to run again – that’s a sheepdog cross for you! (I was much fitter back then as well – I had to be!) Now our special girl is older we let her have her naps on our bed everyyy day πŸ™„ Protecting her from fleas is important – we give her #NexGardSpectra chews. They are convenient, easy, she loves gobbling them up and she stays free from ticks, fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms the whole month. #DogsofNexGardSpectra #ad #tireddogisahappydog #happyowner #dogsofinstagram #allergies #dogcare #dog #dogskincare #labrador #bordercollie #borador #mixedbreed #bedroom #interiors #styling
