The Lovely Wall

Let me introduce you to The Lovely Wall. They create an amazing range of wall decals that will look fabulous, not just in the kid's room, but any room in the house.

Let your imagination run wild with all the beautiful coloured shapes available to you. Create your own design - as structured or as whimsical as you please.

Many of the decals are available in a range of colours. If you need more than one pack you could decide whether you want to mix or match the colours.

For all the typography lovers, there are some really cute options. My fave - "be nice or leave" - is going to be my new motto at home! :)

As well as the plain vinyls, which by the way are fully removable and reusable, you'll love the collection of chalkboard decals, which come complete with two sticks of chalk.

The range of removable wallpaper is lots of fun, and could be used on the walls, a door, the back of your bookshelf, or to brighten up a table top...

As if that wasn't enough, The Lovely Wall also produce their own adhesive labels in a range of different shapes and designs. Some are even chalkboard stickers so you can label them yourself.

Based in the US, all of the products can be shipped internationally. If there is something special you have in mind contact the Lovely team for custom designed decals and wall wraps. There is something for everyone to love in The Lovely Wall's range!

Fi's Dining Room | Bibby + Brady

On Friday I posted a living room that Dael & I designed recently for our super cool client, Fi. Today I bring you her dining room. As I mentioned on Friday, the home has amazing bones, but you can see that the red walls combined with all that wood was too overpowering. Some people believe that red stimulates the appetite, hence this is not the first red dining room I've come across. But it's also one of the darkest rooms in this house, so we chose to lighten it with one of our favourite whites - a gentle, fleecy off-white which is lovely with wood tones.

Like me, Fi loves a touch of Bohemia, so we gave her dining room a glamorous ethnic feel.

As is often the case, creating the look doesn't happen instantly. Clients usually purchase their favourite or most needed pieces first. Fi's round table is great, but we felt in this room a rectangular shape would work well. For now her current table still looks fab, and our fave upholsterer, Asha from Little & Fox, covered the chairs in a gorgeous velvet.

Fi has bought one of the amazing brass chandeliers for above the table, it's just waiting to be installed (long story!). We're also still looking for the perfect art piece for above the fireplace, so for now one of Dael's is standing in.

When we work with our Bibby + Brady clients it's very important to us that the interiors we design reflect their owner/s, and I think this is a great representation of Fi - glamorous, worldly, free-spirited and cool! It also has to be functional, and although it's located next to the kitchen, we provided her with additional storage for her glasses, dinnerware etc, and a cute bar cart for when her friends pop over.

We all love the roman blinds we had made from the most beautiful fabric. We have the most brilliant curtain and blind maker, and a huge range of fabrics available to us (just in case you need new curtains and blinds at your place). If you live locally we can also have them installed for you, but we've worked with clients from outside of Hawke's Bay, and have had their curtains shipped to them all made and ready to hang themselves (or by their chosen professional). Don't hesitate to contact Dael or I if you'd like any help with your interiors - both residential or commercial.
