This home is a fabulous example of a stylish livable space. A family home on the NSW Central Coast that is simplified, unpretentious and gives a nod to classic beach side design. The owners of this home are Sammy & Roy who undertook a large cosmetic renovation and the results are fab. This home is featured in this months issue of Home Beautiful.

This deck area has embraced a more outdoor living room vibe, with a great natural woven rug. The large white sheer curtains can be drawn to make the room cosy or keep out the sun in high summer.  Curtains are a great way to add colour or softness to your deck area. Easy to take down and wash as well.

One of my biggest mistakes when we built our new kitchen was to forget to create a space for the microwave…duh. I still don’t have a good place for it and it has to sit on the kitchen bench.  Always take into account, microwaves, rubbish and recycling areas when designing your kitchen.

A well designed simple kitchen.

I love the wood paneled ceiling painted white.  Because the height of this room was lower than the rest of the house the owners came up with a great solution to still be able to have a chandelier.  They hung it off the side of the bed in the corner of the room – very clever.

Sammy has an online shop with a range of fabulous homewares that she has made.  Her office features her materials and inspirations. Check out her gorgeous homewares here.

Loving the white linen bunting she has that is threaded on natural jute you can see up on her verandah.

Sweet little cubby hole to use for display, while the rest of the under stair area has been used for loads of draws to store bit & pieces.

I love this little girls rooms because it does NOT have candy pink painted on the wall.  I always try to get clients to pick the lightest shade possible for pink or purple for their daughters room.  Let the colour flow from the fabric, furniture & decorations.

Wow this cushion goes straight on my wish list.  Fab colour combination and take on the classic Union Jack.

Sammy Jo also has a great selection of kids bunting, bags and decorations.

If any of you have been crafty and created some bunting for your home, send me a pic as I would love to see it.
