I have had the privilege of working with some great clients lately, particularly a big project I worked on in Sydney for most of last year, which I shared with you on the blog. Here’s a few of the photos I took when workshopping ideas for schemes. Playing with fabrics is one of my favourite pastimes, there’s an endless list of possibilities and it’s almost impossible to keep up with the new choices on offer. Whilst the majority have been blue and white recently, I do get asked to do other colour schemes which I love for a change. Nothing like stretching the creative muscle.

It’s a shame the Aussie dollar has faltered so much of late, as it has meant most of these fabrics have increased by about 30% which does make it prohibitive for most people, but there are still clever ways of having touches of beautiful designer fabrics without going broke decorating your home.

These fabrics, trims and wallpapers are from the likes of Brunschwig & Fils, Manuel Canovas, Schumacher, Barclay Butera, Sarah Richardson, Zepel, Kravet, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Westbury, Jane Churchill, Larsen, Threads, Aerin, Windsor Smith.

    Thankyou for sharing that Melinda, right now I’m loving the Lively Lattice Collection by Libby Langdon, but I don’t think anyone stocks it here in Sydney, I’m hoping to find something similar or it looks like I have to order from overseas. You make it look so easy to put different prints and textures together, love it. Regards Sara

    Hello Melinda, I have just been looking at your kitchen renovation part one. Could you tell me what is the gorgeous colour and brand of paint you used in the kitchen/dining area please? Your posts are wonderful and are giving us so much inspiration. Keep up the great work. Many thanks Ann.

    Hi Melinda I’m having trouble finding the perfect duck egg blue fabric for some accent chairs for my lounge room do you have one you recommend? I just can’t seem to find the right colour.

Please feel free to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you
