The fabulous Flinders Lane Apartment

The plywood trend has been popular for a while now, and I can see why. Flinders Lane Apartment in Melbourne has been artfully designed by Claire Cousins, Dita Beluli and Jessie Fowler to create a family space on a small budget. The owners were looking to create two bedrooms out of one o make space for a baby. Plywood joinery has been used to define the two spaces instead of building actual walls. The plywood also cleverly doubles up as storage space. I love the way the apartment has been finished including the pretty touches of salmon.  What a massively cool family home!

Looking at this apartment (along with this clever small living space, a fab Malmö home, House for Mother and this stunning monochrome and plywood home) makes me start to wonder where I could use plywood in my own home! How about you?

Hope you have a lovely day!


The house gardener

I'm a big fan of indoor plants, not only  do they look beautiful but word has it they also help to purify air and relieve stress. Forget standard pots though. Indoor plants have had something of a make-over of late and terracotta planters have been replaced by terrarium pyramids, eclectic glass vessels and DIY plant hangers. I was so excited to discover the new book 'The House Gardener' by Isabelle Palmer which is packed with indoor gardening tips such as how to create your own terrarium, table centre or even a fairy-tale garden for children. Who needs the great outdoors?!








The House Gardener by Isabelle Palmer is published by CICO Books and is available from rylandpeters.com

Loving this indoor plant make-over, how about you?

I had a quick look around the internet and found these fab terrariums from Etsy. I also love this plant hanger and these very cool wall vessels by 1012 Terra. Or if you've got some free time over Easter how about this copper plant holder DIY project?!

I've hoarded tonnes more indoor plant inspiration on my 'Greenery' board on Pinterest too.

Have a lovely Tuesday! 


Snaps from a beautiful home in Finland

I've been a fan of Finnish blog Time of the Aquarius for as long as I can remember. Blog editor, stylist and writer Minna takes such beautiful images of her world. I particularly love the calm nature of her home which has been decorated in white, grey and  light wood. Just the inspiration I need for a hectic Tuesday! How about you?

I spy one of my favourite chairs: the Artek 66  (15% discount with code MYSCAN).
