Bye Bye Winter, Hello Spring!

Last Day of Winter today and we were treated with another sunny blue sky gorgeous day in Brisbane!

Glorious white captures a Wintery mood for this day bed image

Here's another Winter Daybed scene.

This has a lovely cosy warm feel due to the rug and woollen blanket with the sun streaming in the large windows. image designlike

Now it's time to put away the blankets and celebrate as it's Spring Eve.

While this interior has a lot of white like the first "Wintery"  daybed picture, this interior has warmth due to the lattice print cushions and upholstery, the natural coloured matt and timber floor.

Florals will give you a Spring look every time.  I love the blue and white combination of floral lattice wallpaper, and floral wallpaper lined cabinet image

Planning for Spring it's just around the corner!

It's a great time to start thinking about freshening up your home with Spring just a few days away.

Open shelving is a great way to store and display your favourite things! image vi.sualize
It might be just giving your rooms a good once over dusting and rearranging shelves, or treating yourself to something new and bright.

Brisbane's Thea & Sami have great bright hand printed fabrics and these gorgeous cushions would brighten any room!
It's also a good time to paint before the summer wet weather sets in.

I've recommended Dulux design rust paint to a client recently.  This paint is suitable for interior and exterior use.  It's applied in two parts firstly the base coat and then the rust solution by brush only.

For more information go on Design Rust paint go to Dulux

The paint would give a similar finish to this gate from Lump

Painting Complete - Big Reveal out the back!

Very excited that all my painting is complete and I can share with you the finished look for all my hard work!
A nice sunny spot on a winters day!  If it gets chilly a nice soft warm rug from BBNT.

Pretty Begonias brighten the outdoor space
New cushions on my outdoor lounge hand made by me - the perfect spot to enjoy a book or a magazine!  My hubby says oh no not more cushions! You can also see a little bit of the landscaping part 2 which needs some spring weather to give the plants a boost!

Hanging lanterns by day add interest and by night set the mood!


We love our new bar table many a good night has been had, and it's a great breakfast spot too.

Enjoy this beautiful Sunday no matter what you're up to!

The paint colours again are Dulux Natural Stone on the weatherboards, Ironstone for the window sills and trims and Antique White USA for the windows.  NO more mustard walls.

Happy for people to pin or use these photos please credit or include a link to the LCD blog!  Many thanks!
