Apologies for my extended silence, of late. Our lovely new apartment is still in its’ infancy and it has left me without¬†the compelling urge to jot down my musings. But after a whirlwind 24 hours in the nearby bustling and culturally vibrant hub of Melbourne, VIC, my passion for pretty accents and soft touches has been rekindled. And despite being utterly spent on the journey home I now find myself wide-eyed and abuzz with energy.

I’ve been flirting with the idea of adding bold block colours to our home, as I love the look of clean lines and crisp bright monochrome that is often captured in freshome.com‘s apartment and house tours. However, my familiarity with the pale, the stone and the taupe and penchant for a simple aesthetic has blocked me from stepping into the world of pop colour.

I’ve been taking inspiration to create a perfect little spot to sit, read, and take everything in…

I’m looking forward to creating a lovely little window seat in my new home that overlooks wild, native scrubland. I’ll be moving in soon. Can’t wait to set it up and show it off.

quote of the day…

As I pack up my life into a multitude of cardboard boxes I enter into the task of culling, salvaging and cherishing the possessions I have collected along the way. All the while, keeping in mind this quote I saw on the facebook page of freshome.com the other day.

I am about to begin fulfilling the latter of this phrase, and despite the sadness caused by leaving my hometown… I just can’t wait.
