So chuffed to be working on a new homewares page for the awesome @stmperth magazine 😊 I love these products from some of my favourite suppliers and creators including @_katejarman_ @westelmaus @littleleafco @cranmorehome @brosadesign @potterybarnperth and others. Make sure you check it out in the paper today πŸ˜‹ (I showed Little Nerd my byline pic... he looked puzzled for a second then said triumphantly, "my mum!" and patted me on the hair lovingly. I was all smug for a split second until he unceremoniously threw the magazine on the floor and stamped on it). #nevermind #isthisterribletwos #hesnoteventwoyet 😟 #stmperth #homewares #housenerd #stm #homeedit #journalist #magazine #sundaytimes #perth #interiordesign

Love this photo my sister @_mile_high just took of Cottesloe Beach and Indiana Teahouse. When he was a teenager, my hubby used to work at the Indiana Teahouse, serving hot bikini clad girls all day long. Good thing we weren't dating then πŸ‘ŠπŸ½πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ˜„ #kidding #ithink πŸ™„#cottesloe #cottesloebeach #perthnow #milehigh #drone #natgeo #perthlife #ocean #indianateahouse #beach

I'm so excited to share that I'm going to be working with @stmperth on a new page called Home Edit! 😊 I have always freaking loved STM and its content and am stoked to be able to combine it with my love of homewares, interior design and a really good excuse for going on Pinterest πŸ˜„ You can check out my first page in STM this weekend 😝 I'll be keeping an eye out for new homewares stores, online shops, artists, furniture makers, ceramicists, etc so please tag your favourites below (and thanks!) Meanwhile Nala is all "I don't give a crap about your new column" and she will literally stand here forever so er I guess I have time to quickly take her to the park πŸ™„ But then right back to it. #workdogbalance #myboss #freelance #myoffice #workingfromhome #journalist #blogger #stm #homewares #interiordesign #column #media #magazine #home #housenerd #work

I always love a good before and after. Just got sent these pics - this is the formerly rather dark and daggy 70s house my interior stylist sister-in-law @livderoche bought and renovated. Swipe right to see the 'before' - mmm 80s orange cork floors! Poor Liv and her hubby spent four weeks scraping it all off so it could be replaced with wide oak planks. Ok I wasn't the one who had to get her hands dirty but I'm going to say totally worth it πŸ˜œπŸ‘ŠπŸ½ (Also I am loving her new @freedom_australia rug). #renovation #beforeandafter #DIY #scandinavian #coastal #beachhome #interiors123 #interiordesign #whiteonwhite #70s #fixerupper #stylist #oak

How cool is the Native Plant Subsidy Scheme?! 🌿 For the month of May numerous councils in Perth are offering subsidised native plants for people to reduce water use, create habitats for local animals and encourage birds and bees to their gardens (a help for all those poor owls, black cockatoos and other birds that lost their nests and homes during the Roe 8 clearing carnage 😑) The subsidy runs for the month of May (pending sufficient stock). Councils involved include Fremantle, Cottesloe, Claremont, Nedlands, Melville, Cockburn, Cambridge, East Freo and more, with plant allowances dependent on what council you live in (lucky City of Subiaco residents can take home up to 80 local plants!) Plants available at lovely APACE Nursery by the river in North Fremantle (bring proof of your residency). Little Nerd and I just popped in and picked out 20 little plants for $1.50 each! We have a hive of bees in our garden... they are going to bee so happy 😜🐝🌿🌼 #sorry #cityofperth #perthisok #apace #nursery #nativeplants #green #garden #bees #nativeplant #cityofmelville #housenerd #gardening #love #perth #plants #verge

This is my kind of holiday weather! Storm clouds rolling in today across the road from our villa #ocean #storm #bay #dunsborough #downsouth #housenerd #beach #stormclouds

Bit of a spontaneous weekend in beautiful Dunsborough. The last time we were here, little man was still in his bum shuffling phase. Now he's a walker and SO much easier to cart around! So I'm doing what any good mother would do and dragging him around homewares stores and coffee places. LOVE the things in this awesome store @merchantandmaker. Thanks for toddler wrangling help @_katelancaster 😜#interiors #twoyearold #yawn #youdontlikeit #idontcare #childhood #merchantandmaker #homewares #shopping #downsouth #housenerd #homedecor #homegoods

Now here's a not-to-be-missed event. My friends and luxury events hire company @villa_kula are holding their annual warehouse clearance sale this weekend. They're selling all their new and pre-loved hire furniture to make way for new stock. And if you haven't seen their furniture, textiles and homewares before, their stuff is GORGEOUS (and the @villa_kula people are hands-down just awesome, really cool people too). You will love it (especially if beachy, tribal, classic or Hamptons-Inspired interiors float your boat). It's THE sale to go to - and this year I can't even make it 😩 so please go for me. I would totally fling myself upon this coffee table and shriek "MINE" the same way my two year old currently does with everything he sees πŸ™„ Sale is on Saturday 20 to Sunday 21 May, 10am - 3pm, 12 Jessie Lee Street Henderson. My advice: get there early! πŸŒ₯ πŸ“· @natasjakremers #villakula #villakulasale #sale #bargain #secondhand #villakulaevents #blog #interiors #housenerd #twoyearold #fomo

Three weeks ago I saw this cute vintage meat safe at the Melville Markets. You can't see in the photo, but it has mesh sides, but I liked that the front is solid). Anyway I didn't buy it, thinking well I don't neeeeed it, and the guy was asking $150 (too much? I'm so used to budget market prices) and as soon as I got home (and ever since) I was like I need it dammit why didn't I buy it?! I can't stop thinking about my lost love. Wrath of husband be damned; I would have made it work. Haven't seen it since 😩 Have you ever not bought anything from a flea market and regretted it? Also at the request of a lovely reader I'm doing a blog story on decorating your home with thrifted/roadside finds - if you have anything in your home you found and love, please tag me in it ⭐️ #housenerd #melvillemarkets #fleamarket #interiorsblog #thrifted #secondhand #furniture #hoarder

We visited our new house this morning 😌ok ok... well it's not exactly our house yet... but it could be! One of my favourite charities @cancercouncilwa are raffling off this absolutely beautiful new home built by @switch_homes in their @cancercouncillifestylelottery. The house is at 104 Alfred Street Claremont, comes fully furnished, is so full of light, and it's just gorgeous. Honestly, normally modern houses aren't my thing, but this one... I could see myself here πŸ€” (Check out the spacious butler's pantry to the right... ahhh 😍) More pics of this house in my Instastories. Wish me and my solo ticket good luck 😜 and check out the @cancercouncilwa page if you'd like to grab one yourself! #dreamhome #win #kitchen #interiors #housenerd #interiors123 #cancercouncil #charity

Pretty bunch of blooms from @urbanbunches_perth brightening up my house today! These lovely local guys deliver wallet-friendly flowers (as well as organic chocolate and artisanal gifts) from just $20 - seven days a week! Nice idea for Mother's Day, newborn baby arrivals, or as general 'cheer up a sad friend' or 'I forgot your birthday' surprises. #chronicbirthdayforgetter πŸ˜• #andanniversaries 😬 #perthflowers #perthbusiness #florals #blooms #blackwalls #bunches #delivery

I had the best karma at the Melville markets yesterday! I think it's because as soon as I got there I found a $20 note blowing in a gust of wind, and I managed to find who lost it (nice man who was very grateful). One of my scores was this pretty plant! It's called a variegated pitsonia and I love it because his leaves look like little paint-by-numbers 🌿😍 Also I don't have a fresh blog post ready at the moment but I've linked to an oldie (but-goodie) in my profile - my tips for scoring at vintage markets, house nerd style πŸ˜‰ #markets #indoorplants #mykindaweekend #interiors #blog #blackwalls #interiorstyle #home #interiorsblog #indoorgreenery #bedroom
