For many of us the start of a new year signals an opportunity to start afresh. A time to rid ourselves of old patterns and behaviours that no longer serve us and to create new goals for the year ahead.

Whilst many people’s goals are focused on the personal things they would like to achieve (loose 10 kilo’s, drink less etc), I’m here to remind you all, not to forget about the home.

Our homes are a reflection of who we are as people. They showcase what matters to us most and are representative of our personality, lifestyle and style, so they deserve a little love!

I am a firm believer that your home should be a place where you feel most comfortable and at peace, which is why ‘house goals’ are so important.

Like people, our homes evolve as we grow and our tastes change. So if one of your new year goals is to give your home a complete overhaul or your planning on redecorating that space you’ve been talking about for the past year, here are some interior trends for the year ahead to get you inspired.

So you have just moved into a rental property? Maybe you’re a seasoned renter and are saving for something to call your own, maybe you’re building or renovating your home and need a place to stay for a period of time or maybe you own a property and have decided to rent it out. What ever your situation, renting is something most of us will experience at least once in our lives. It can be frustrating living in a space that you can’t make permanent changes to, especially if you're used to living in your own home, as a rental never fully feels like ‘your’ home. Unfortunately it’s inevitable that most rentals will come with some wear and tear which you may have to live with, but hold off on calling it a day and living with scratched floor boards, ugly marks on the walls and crappy curtains because these can all be fixed….how you say, I’ll tell you! Here are some simple ways you can inject your own style and taste in your home and best of all I’ll show you how you can achieve it for under $300!!

Renovating a property can be one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. On the top 5 most stressful things to do in life, it is definitely up there!! After completing a few renovations myself I can tell you that it can really make or break a person and that’s without even doing any physical work. Not only is it pain staking at times, especially if you’re doing the work yourself,  it’s can also be a huge financial pressure, especially if you blow your budget. Here are my top 5 tips to surviving a renovation no matter how big or small and things to consider that can make or break a project.

It's no secret that the weather in the southern hemisphere is getting colder by the day and winter is officially on its way. 

As the winter season approaches a lot of people tend to go into hibernation mode, not wanting to do a lot but stay in doors, binge on Netflix and drink copious amounts of tea….or wine (what ever floats your boat 😆

But instead of laying low this season, why not update your interiors with the latest trends to create the perfect abode and enjoy the cooler months in style.
