Scandinavian Christmas With A Pop of Pink

IKEA holiday decor

by: Sarah Gunn

I love decorating for Christmas, so when IKEA asked me to participate in their 'Help Spread Jul' event, it was a very fast yes! Jul is Swedish for Christmas, by the way {It's one of the few Swedish words I recall from living in Stockholm}. It is no secret that I love IKEA and I look there every year for holiday decor. I have to say though, that this year the selection is spectacular.

Holiday Decor Ideas for Kids

Create An Interactive Holiday Space

by: Sarah Gunn

I love the idea of creating a cute and fun table for children at family holiday dinners. There are a few things to keep in mind when designing a table for kids. I recently shared my tips for creating fun and interactive table décor on Cityline.

I think choosing a theme is a great starting point. I went with a Frosty the Snowman theme because it appeals to children of all ages.

Holiday Tabletop Ideas

Shop your home to create one of these gorgeous centrepieces

by: Sarah Gunn

I thought I would end my holiday posts with some beautiful tabletop ideas. I love a pretty table. What I love most about many of these photos is that you can use them as inspiration to 'shop your home' for a similar idea.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday full of love, laughter and turkey.

by: Sarah Gunn

I love decorating for the holidays. The sparkle, the colours and the chance to transform a space all make me happy. I started this year {yes, already} with my dining room. I wanted a simple sophisticated look and I am pretty excited about the results so far.
Here is what my sideboard looked like before:

Here is what it looks like now:

The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

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.
