11 dreamy spaces you wouldn’t want to leave…

February 13th, 2016

Lately I have not been able to ignore the beautiful window seats I have seen popping up in houses on Pinterest & social media - it feels like they are ‘having a moment’ in new home design.

A modern, architecturally designed feature, a modified bay window in a character home or simply some strategically placed floor cushions - the idea of a light filled, cosy nook connecting to the outdoors to read or watch the world go by sounds like heaven to me...

15 inspiring spaces to celebrate the best of Australian style…

January 29th, 2016

In the spirit of celebrating all things Australian, this week I thought it would be fun to share a collection of gorgeous spaces that embody the quintessential Aussie spirit.

Homes that invite nature & the great outdoors in, that have a relaxed, warm & comfortable vibe without sacrificing on style. Understated & not too fussy or precious - natural, honest materials, with pieces that have soul & character designed to be loved, used & enjoyed by all…

Happy 2016! I hope you enjoyed a very merry festive season & managed to take some time to relax, reflect & set intentions for an exciting year ahead?

We are about to embark on the journey of building a new house so I am looking forward to sharing our inspirations & plans with you along the way.

This week I am keeping it short & sweet - sharing with you the brand new pieces that have just landed at Bowerhouse...


Lots of gorgeous colour & pattern in this little collection to inject inspiration & joy into your home for the new year! Each piece is one of a kind and cannot be re-ordered again, made from vintage panels of soft printed cotton intricately hand stitched together.

Regular vintage kantha quilts - $175.00 Dimensions vary between each piece, generally all will fully cover a single bed or lay horizontally to cover a double or queen bed (the quilt will cover the bed width-ways and the bottom 2/3 of the bed lengthways)

Kingsize Patchwork Kantha Quilts - $289.00 - with free shipping Dimensions approx 230cm x 280cm

These quilts are made from vintage material, you can expect to find patches, rough/raw edges & general imperfections in the colour & finish, adding to its unique charm.


The classic combo of blue & white is timeless, these kingsize kantha bed throws invite a relaxed, coastal, carefree vibe to your space. Made from Indian cotton & easy to layer over your existing doona or over sheets as the weather warms up.

The Indigo quilts are new, not vintage - with one side hand dyed/printed, the reverse in plain dyed indigo & the entire quilt covered in hand stitched lines.

My inspiration for a perfect Christmas table…

December 24th, 2015

I am popping into your inbox for the last time in 2015 with some inspiration for your Christmas table - this year I am going with slate grey linen table cloths, brown kraft paper table runner, a scattering of gold & silver glass tea light votives, glittering baubles, christmas ornaments & these cute mini rosemary wreath name place cards - to make life easier the Christmas table will be set the day before so Christmas morning can be free for present unwrapping & ham/ cheese croissants! I will share our finished Christmas table over on Instagram & if you are chasing extra festive inspiration you can check out our festive Pinterest board here.
