I have long been inspired by the beauty of products made in France and Italy. Products today are often mass produced, at times great craftsmanship and beauty of fabric is over looked. On the weekend I had the pleasure of meeting an Italian gentleman who was passionate about quality and lasting beauty in his products. His range of bed-linen a delicate blend of linen and cotton in stunning toile prints gorgeous stripes and custom made linen made by job as a decorator a whole lot more inspiring. I love the fact that linen can be collected and shared over generations not merely disposed of, I'm thrilled to be the stockist of this stunning range.

Today we started early with the truck filling loads of stock for a decorating job on the Gold Coast. We have fully renovated this stunning holiday apartment with panoramic ocean views right on the beach. Our client is such lovely person with a great sense of style, she wanted a classic, timeless feel, a place to relax with family and friends. We will have the job totally completed by the end of next week. I'm so happy with the out come but I don't want to show more until we have completed the rest of the job.
The boy's room was a very difficult space to work with so we couldn't do bed heads due to the window, the end result I'm really happy with, we still need to add the prints on the wall and a sideboard to finish the room.
A sneak peak in the bedroom, the wallpaper is only on one wall and the other walls are blue with white trim, white linen sheers keeping the room fresh and crystal lamps with white silk shades sit on the custom painted white commodes, a sideboard in pressed silver will complete the room. The room is nearly finished and I will post the final look later in the week.
A close up of our ottomans, this gorgeous embroidered fabric looks more amazing in real life
Under the coffee table will be lots of magazines for holiday reading. The curtains will be made of white linen sheers with lots of fullness with the lounges and finishing touches still to be completed. The entry is wall-papered in tones of silver, taupe, greys and white in a beautiful classic pattern the same as the bedroom but a different colour way. A french style cupboard is going to be filled with lots of white and taupe crockery, crystal glasses and decanters, lots of fresh white flowers will complete the room.

When I started lily-g it was a very girly shop, over time our male customer base has increased hugely and we often find the guys lingering in the store and enjoying reading the books and generally just browsing. Our latest collection of vintage luggage, cigar box trunks, aged leather chairs, silver telescopes, leather bound note books and Italian monogrammed wax stamps has been a welcomed addition to our range. My partner Paul now works full time at lily-g due to our growth and our plan to open more store's, it's his influence that made us think of the boy's in our life too.

I fell upon this beautiful children's website called www.teaprincess.com.au and instantly found the flower girl dress for lily. Initially I wanted more of a tutu style but I just fell in love with this dress and had to order it, simple but very pretty and I love the hair style too. The pink dress I purchased for the day after the wedding isn't it gorgeous!

New in-store we are loving the new range from lazybones, great for the grown-ups too, available in pink, white, green, black and cream with tufted cushions to match. Canopy nets also available.
This would be lily's favorite colour scheme, I love mixing red with hot pink it makes a gorgeous combination especially for young girls.

Planning the gardens would have to be the best part about buying a property in the country. Although I have not yet reached that part in my life, you can only imagine the endless ideas running through my head. A chessboard for the kids, the vintage bench seats in the garden and a glass of wine in hand sets the perfect scene...

I have had several emails in regard to our on-line store so I wanted to give you an update. Our latest collection of fashion will be available for purchase online as of next week, and we will be adding new pieces as they arrive. As for our home-wares we are keeping the online store small initially and working on it over the following weeks.
