Urban Wall Decals

a fun and modern way to add pattern to your walls

by: Sarah Gunn

Are you looking for a modern way to add some pattern to your walls but are a bit afraid of wallpaper or stencils? Wall decals may be a great solution for you. Decals have come a long way in the past few years and Urban Walls, a Canadian company, has some amazing designs for any room in your home. I love how current and stylish they are. They are easy to apply, last for years and you can choose from a ton of colours for each pattern.

The One of A Kind Show was amazing this year. I went to support my friend, Christine, of the fabulous blog Bijou and Boheme, who was presenting on the main stage. As a lucky bonus I found some of the most fabulous decor finds I have seen in a very long time.

Decorating With Maps

Travel Themed Home Decor

by: Sarah Gunn

My husband and I love to travel. In fact, he asked me to move to Europe with him the first night we met. I said yes and we did move to London not long after. I had already lived in Sweden and loved the chance to travel more. We explored a new country pretty much every month. It was amazing. He proposed to me in the courtyard of the Louvre in Paris.

When we got engaged we realized that we wanted to raise a family back home. So we left our travelling dreams behind and started new dreams: two adorable boys.

Royal Style

Decor Inspired By William and Kate's Upcoming Wedding

by: Sarah Gunn

Okay I admit it. I am excited for the royal wedding. As a girl who always dreamed she would grow up to be a princess {hello, my name means princess for crying out loud} a royal wedding has me daydreaming about all things royal. Including decor.

I know, I know. You are thinking, who wants a tea set with William and Kate’s faces plastered all over it. But the royal wedding has not only inspired collector spoons and tea cozies. It has introduced me to some really fun and stylish royal design.

Shopping Vintage Décor

Vintage bottles add style to any space.

by: Sarah Gunn

When I was young I loved visiting my grandparents in The Valley. Their houses, first in a town aptly called Paradise, and later in Ernest Buckler’s home in Bridgetown were old, beautiful and packed with antiques. I loved exploring all of the rooms, peeking inside of closets and snooping in cabinets. There was a treasure around every corner. One thing I loved was the collection colourful tiny bottles that lined the window sills.

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.
