5 Stylish Easter Decorating Ideas

With less than two weeks until Easter, I thought it was about time that I add a little seasonal touch to the house. I won’t do a lot, just something simple to represent the holiday, and of course get the children a little excited about the impending Easter bunny visit, or the cloche… It gets a little confusing this time of year with our French/Australian traditions.

A new bedroom look with The Foxes Den,.

I had some fun doing some styling for The Foxes Den over the weekend. With the change of seasons, the one area in the home that I find needs to adapt, is the bedroom and with cooler weather arriving, I needed something a little cosier.

Glamping around the world.

I’m dreaming of the wilderness, tall trees, open fields and that feeling of being one with nature. To feel the warmth of a mug of tea in my hands as I sit outside breathing in pure air. I might even spot some wildlife. Perhaps I’ll pick up a pen and write, open a book or perhaps the scenery and my thoughts will be enough.

French Country Collections' Winter Table

On Sunday I developed a nasty head cold. I was at my worst on Monday and feeling rather sorry for myself. The autumn sun was shining outside but all I felt like doing was snuggling up on my couch and eating comfort food. That afternoon, I received a delivery from French Country Collections. The impeccably styled catalogue included suggested everything “comfort” that I was craving that day; rich moody hues, a seat by the warm fireplace and an enviable table setting. The blues are set off beautifully with the classic gold accessories. Strangely enough, this summer loving girl was looking forward to winter. You heard it here first!

Styling a kid's room with AURA Home

While my oldest child has his own bedroom, my two youngest share. They love it though. Each time I ask them, if we had another bedroom (which we don’t), would they prefer to have their own rooms, they straight out say no. In fact, quite often they beg me to let them sleep together and quite often when I check on them before I go to bed, I find them in a tight cuddle. It’s so sweet and I admit, I am a pushover (as my husband kindly reminded me this week) but I figure this lovely bond they have should be nurtured.

the power of planning..

My life looks like this. Sometimes I’m so completely organised and I work productively, and other times I feel like I’m working blindfolded and waste a lot of time. It’s silly really, because I know exactly the secret to working efficiently and it’s not at all difficult to do. It just requires two things; time and the power of planning.

  • For the first time in years I played tourist in my own city. I grew up with season tickets to the ballet here. Being away for almost five years, I realised that my children haven't been exposed to this magnificent piece of architecture. I could have spent hours walking in and around the Sydney Opera House. From every angle, another work of art and picture. #jornutzon #architecture #sydneyoperahouse
  • My little people remembering fallen soldiers with a little reenactment today. Their Papi (granddad) is the best teacher and they even got to see him talk at a  service last night.  #anzacday #lestweforget
  • Can't beat salty air, the laugh of kookaburras to wake me each morning and days filled with friends and family. It's good to be home. #sydney #coogee
  • Tulips from a sweet friend over the weekend. They're looking a little tired today in their vase but I'm milking every last bit, they are simply too beautiful to throw away until every last petal has fallen.
  • I've had a crazy few weeks that I was totally unprepared for and quite literally floored me. Life does that to you sometimes, but I think there's always a lesson to be learnt from these challenges. Today I'm feeling grateful for family, friends and simple things. Happy new week everyone!
  • From quite simply the best husband.
  • Been doing a lot of this in the sun lately ☕️🌞
  • My lovely friends at @gatherum.collectif showed some quince kindness. How good for the soul to arrive home to find this on the doorstep last Friday. I can assure you that not one was wasted @fiona.hugues @jani.shepherd - our family is in jam heaven! Thank you 😘
  • A lovely weekend with friends, family, reading and baking Papa's chocolate birthday cake. Meet my helper 😋 Happy new week everyone and thank you for your comments last week.
  • Hope you all had a great Easter weekend. Sorry for the silence on my end here and on the the blog. Life's dealt me a challenge suddenly which requires a shift of focus for the moment. Had a lovely weekend away with my beautiful family and friends though, which couldn't have come at a better time. ☺️
  • A close up to the Rhipsalis plant. I found out it's a cactus, I always thought it was a succulent! Happy new week green lovers 😘🌿 #urbanjunglebloggers #botanicalzoom
  • Happy weekend ☕️
  • Zooming up close to the fiddle leaf fig for the March @urbanjungleblog theme #botanicalzoom #urbanjunglebloggers #linkinprofile
  • Back a @littleandfriday yesterday. Happy Friyay 💙
  • Black, brass, glass. The fit-out in the new @m11studio hair salon in Newmarket is pretty gorgeous 💫
  • I used these quail eggs that are decorated by Mother Nature for my Easter tree last year. I just published a post with 5 Stylish Easter Decorating Ideas on the blog. Link in profile. Also looking rather moody for my two friends @jocelynhefner @stilzitat #itsamoodywednesday
