The humble bedroom has a big duty to play in our lives. It’s where we go to rest and restore our mind body and soul in a very personal way. The living room also assists in these duties, but we all know that a night without a peaceful sleep can make for a rather challenging […]

I have a décor crush on patterned tiles. There, I’ve said it. It’s out and we can now move on. Hehe – I love the personality that a great patterned tile brings to a room. A bench to ceiling splash back can transform a basic white kitchen palette into the ‘Wow’ factor of the room. […]

Posted on 03/19/14 in homelife, No Comments
