IKEA 2013 Catalogue Top Decor Picks

Stylish with a side of meatballs

by: Sarah Gunn

It's no secret that I love IKEA. I have several IKEA pieces in my home and my marriage has survived many an allen key assembly. I even lugged a very heavy decor piece home from my days living in Stockholm because I could not bear to part with it.

Re-Formed ArtCubes

Display Precious Keepsakes in Style

by: Sarah Gunn

I am a very nostalgic person. For me things are not just things. They have meaning, they tell a story. They hold memories. I have so many items from my childhood; I have my boys’ first outfits and their second and their third. But all of these things are tucked away in labelled bins in my basement. I want them out where they make me smile.

The only problem is: how do I display momentos in a pretty way? How do I make them not look like clutter?

Crazy for Quatrefoil

The Four Leaves That Will Add Detail To Your Design

by: Sarah Gunn

I love using pattern in my home but I must admit I tend to be drawn towards simple repeated designs. One of my favourites is quatrefoil; this simple clover-like pattern is so pretty and can be seen in architectural details, decor and more.

Decor Month at YMC

by: Sarah Gunn

Do you have a passion for all things pretty? Do you love talking interior design and decor trends? Are you super proud of your home? Then you have come to the right place!

March is decor month at YMC and we are looking for you to write articles.
 

You can write about any aspect of design:

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.
