Curl Up Under a Cozy Throw

Comfy, Warm and Gorgeous

by: Sarah Gunn

There is nothing better to do on a cold day than curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book, a great movie, or if I am really honest, a trashy reality TV show. I am rarely on the couch without a throw blanket, even in the summer. Not only are they comfy and warm, throw blankets are a simple and inexpensive way to introduce texture, pattern and colour to a space.

Here are my top 7 picks for gorgeous, cozy throws:

1. NuBe Green Eco Striped Throw $85.00

\"\"

2. Dwell Studio Vintage Blossom Chocolate Throw $320.00
 

\"\"

3. NuBe Green Houndstooth Throw $135.00

\"\"

4. Pottery Barn Cable-knit Throw $102.52

\"\"

5. Anthropologie Quirky Heirloom Throw $198.00
 

\"\"

6. West Elm Cozy Throw $74.00

\"\"

7. Crate and Barrel Hailey Shadow Throw $99.99

\"\"

I love all of these but I have to say the Dwell Studio one is my favourite {don’t tell my credit card}. Which one can you picture draped on your couch?

Decorating For Fall

Use Nature As Your Inspiration

by: Sarah Gunn

I hate this time of year. It’s not that I hate fall so much as I hate the end of summer. But, I do love any opportunity to refresh the décor in my home. The soft yellows, reds and oranges of the changing leaves are perfect for adding some colour to your space. Not sure how to bring autumn colours inside? Leaf it to me….I found some gorgeous inspiration in my favourite place on the internet: Pinterest.

Sarah Gunn loves interior design almost as much as she loves her two adorable boys and her hot husband. 

She has had a vision her whole life of her dream house. You know. The mansion that sits on the ocean with a pool and the massive wrap around porch. And a butler. Then she grew up. Turns out life isn't a fairytale and she's not exactly living in a castle. In fact, her house is in constant need of design intervention. Little things like children, exhaustion and budgets get in the way.

But this story does have a happy ending: years of experience watching decorating shows and clipping ideas from her favourite design magazines have equipped Sarah with the mad decorating skills she needs to turn anyone's house into the home of their dreams with great tips, tricks and inspiration. 

Join Sarah each week as she shares DIY projects, inspiration and her favourite new décor finds...all on a budget every mummy will love.

Sarah has recently had a dream of a lifetime come true: she now shares her mad DIY skills on the popular show, CityLine. She is also now designing spaces for children. If this is all a dream, then please don't wake her up.
