Our Fashion store is filling fast with stunning spring fashion from Twin-Set Italy, here is a sneak preview!

European lighting

When I was building my home I struggled with finding European lighting that is legal to use in Australia. Our new collection of lighting is very extensive and if your interested in any pieces please email me lilyg1@bigpond.com.au

All dressed in white

In my next home I'm definitely heavily lime washing my timber floors, putting it back with lots of raw oak and white for a simple classic look. I adore the raw oak beams, the gorgeous kitchen stools with the linen skirts, the old brass lighting. The arches in the first photo with the wall panelling peaking through, divine..... its all about using lots of texture when working with neutrals.

Tomorrow is officially my first day of my holidays, it has been over a year and half since my last holiday. I'm really looking forward to just relaxing, reading, long walks and dinners out with Paul, spending time with my family. After a week of computers crashing, I can receive emails but cannot send them, at home I can send them but can't receive them, urrggg.....computers drive me crazy! It has been a busy frustrating week, finalizing jobs, starting new ones, unpacking new stock etc... I'm just a Moody Judy who just needs a good rest. We are spending the week at Noosa and on Saturday we are going to Eumundi markets which I always love. The photo of Lily was taken on our last holiday isn't she cute? Why is chubby so cute only when we are little? All I can say is thank goodness its winter and I'm wearing track suits all week :)

Have a great week-end

Brooke from Velvet and linen in America would have to be my favourite designer, her work is so inspiring and she is so incredibly talented. The make over of this bathroom is stunning and very stylish. I love the wall panelling, the vanities which look more like furniture pieces and the dressing table, I especially love the timber floors with the tiled area giving the illusion of a rug, the fabric ottoman will add the perfect touch.

In a perfect world

This would be Lily's cubby house

My puppies would own this gorgeous bed and I would be the proud owner of this glorious back yard

I would live in this home......

Country living

After a day in the Byron hinterland it had me thinking of my next dream house. I would love a home as above ( but it would be half the size) definitely painted white, a beautiful garden and it must have a huge fig tree, we want a house that we can renovate but finding one with character is proving to be a lot more challenging, we are just looking at this stage but I suppose we are just exploring and getting to know this beautiful piece of paradise as we continue to dream.

What a Week!

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts all week. We were invited to an exclusive Riviera Maison Xmas showing in melbourne which was so much fun. The logs fires, the snow capped tree's, the old sleighs and ski's decorated the room's which were filled with decorations and delights. It was Xmas in July and the freezing cold weather set the scene perfectly. I have now completed all my Xmas buying, hard to believe when its still 6 months away!

Wednesday was our Interiors night at lily-g we showed the latest fabrics and wall-papers and design ideas, we had a guest speaker on Designer rugs and amazing footage from Tricia Guild (Designers Guild) talking about her inspiration and design process, did you know it takes a year of work to produce one collection! Champagne and delicious food flowed through the evening, the night was a huge success.
I have had so many calls in regards to our online shopping. We turn over so much stock in our retail business that every time we load images they sell before we have a chance to load it on to the site. We have had to re think the way we are going to tackle this project and hopefully in the next few weeks it will be up and running, finally!
Have a great week-end, I can't wait to visit all your blogs and see what I have missed out on xx

Lily's Room

I had fun re-arranging the furniture in lily's room over the week-end, her bedcover was looking tired so I found a gorgeous pink stripe quilt that looked so cute in her room. Most of her accessories I have found in junk stores and markets which adds to the fun. I found an old ottoman, painted it white and re upholstered in a scrap of DG fabric. 

White Inspiration

I often use white as my inspiration in my decorating, always crisp, fresh and always in style. Its the perfect back drop for colour. Add a delicious palette of warm whites- vanilla, biscotti and cream and you have decorating menu made in heaven!

Garden Love

We have just started a small gardening section in lily-g with gorgeous tools and accessories for your garden. Our grey stone pots from france are sold in the wooden boxes, the pots would look great with herbs and flowers placed in rows on a window ledge.

Our Hampton's inspired bird houses look fabulous in the garden, I just love the idea of attracting birds to my garden.
