Today’s post is the last in a three-part series created by the ever-lovely Christine from Ruby Fearless. Christine is an expert in fashion and beauty with a penchant for beautiful homewares.
Winter is cold in New Zealand, and this year has been no exception. As I write this my little fingers are freezing, and my toes are hiding in some new slippers trying desperately to warm up.
I love decorating my home, because in winter it becomes my haven and little ‘safe zone’ for curling up and going into hibernation.
For the last couple of weeks I have shown you my favourite pieces from the marble and copper trends that have hit the homeware scene. Tonight, I have an absolute classic for you, to round off this segment nicely. GEOMETRIC!

Winter can be a harsh season when it comes to keeping that motivation going, and staying happy. The best thing I can do is make sure my home is looking good so when I finish up each day, I can get home, get warm and feel really good about my surroundings.
Last week I showed you one of my favourite new homeware trends out, marble. But this week we’re bringing it back to something a little more familiar, with copper.
Yes, metallic decor has been around for a while now, but this week we’re focusing on the burnt rose gold, and super inspiring colour, copper.

Winter. For many New Zealanders the colder weather is a little hard to deal with (especially when we have such beautiful summers), and I am no exception.
My favourite thing to do in winter (apart from treat myself to not one but two new warm coats) is update my decor. I mean, there’s nothing better than getting home from work, getting into some comfortable trackies and slippers, and warming up your beautiful house.
Over the next couple of weeks I will show you my three favourite trends for winter, but first up we have a new one. MARBLE. Yes, imagine a stunning granite top counter, and we’re both on the same wave. Contemporary, calming and quite luxurious, marble is making big waves in home decor.

Peek inside: Our home office

htwd-home-office-1

Do you have a room in your house that you spend a lot of time in, but you never quite bother to make it a nice place to spend all that time in? You know, you just haven’t bothered bringing in all those little things that help make a room so much nicer?

While I love most of our home, my home office has been a little neglected since we moved in over a year ago. I have some rather grand plans for the room that are awhile off, but instead of making it a nice place to be in the meantime, I just set it aside as something I’ll sort out one day.

Well, one day has arrived and I am officially in love with my office – it’s looking seriously cute! The best part? All it took were a few small changes a $50 shopping spree with Mighty Ape.

Happy Monday!

It really began to feel like summer over the weekend, didn’t it? It was so lovely having a couple of days to head out and enjoy the sunshine – well, around masses of Christmas baking! Luckily it all went well and we’re almost all set for Christmas day – the house is decorated, lights are up and there’s just a little baking left to do. Phew!

I hope you had a lovely weekend – here are five things to help get you through the week…

Happy Monday!

What a wonderful weekend – we picked Hunter up from the vet on Friday, so spent most of the weekend snuggled up at home nursing him and giving him lots of cuddles. Add in a bit of baking, DIY-ing around the house and catching up with friends, it was a lovely couple of days.

I hope you had a great weekend too – here are five things to get your week off to a great start…
