Making a nest

Bedroom
Well it’s been a crazy year for me, busily running my little miss gee business in between freelancing and now throw in the ‘moving’ factor again! I moved into a split level apartment in February this year so it’s taken quite a while for me to settle in and furnish it with my style… and now unfortunately I'm sad to say, I'm moving again! The feeling of being unsettled is not one of my happiest times, but every cloud has a silver lining or so I keep telling myself....

My home is filled with pieces that I’ve collected over time on my travels around the world, and every piece holds a memory. Before I move, I'm happy to finally share my favorites from my home.

An assortment of ceramic jugs and china bowls which are more decorative than practical.
I love the look of these china bowls which are more decorative than practical – I mulled over them for hours in the Ben Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Print purchased in Saint Emilion, France.
A lover of art - I kinda have a print obsession. Brought in Saint Emilion, France on the day of my Birthday. It reminds me of how special my adventures have been and the amazing friends I have made along the way.
Indian bedside table
Side table from Ishka and a photograph of my beautiful husky as a puppy –  I named her Ishkah.
Hat stand
Office nook.
My office nook – I do most of my work behind the computer and as you can see there is loads of sewing to be done on the back of my chair!
Wooden jewellery box
The wooden jewellery box was my grandmothers and behind is one of my favourite photos taken in Egypt at the Abu Simbel temples.
The dresser was brought for $10.00 from the Salvos and and the chair was found on the side of the road which I re-upholstered with my own fabric design.
Two of my refurbished furniture projects. The dresser was brought for $10.00 from the Salvos and and the chair was found on the side of the road which I re-upholstered with my own fabric design.
Studio nook
Loungeroom with buddhist art
The lounge room which opens onto a small courtyard filled with succulents given to me by my best friend. The Buddhist art was collected from my travels in Sri Lanka and the wooden head from Cambodia.
