My Decorator recently designed the Lounge Room for a client who wanted a new look for their small lounge area.  The addition of new light grey fabric upholstered lounges, a quality wool floor rug, scatter cushions, framed photo that the client had taken on a holiday to France and some other personal artefacts lead to a happy client and an individual eclectically designed living room that champions contemporary, soft industrial and asian influenced design.  

Denis’ Apartment


Denis is a business owner who consults from home and wanted to create a friendly yet professional welcome to his apartment.

Below are samples of the digital moodboards that I put together for Denis that showed him the look that he could achieve and gave him information of which store he could purchase each item from, based on his provided budget. Denis choose to implement the job at his own pace and time and used the My Decorator digital moodboards as his guide.  You will see from the after photos also pictured below the final result of his newly decorated apartment.

Based on Denis’ brief I chose a blue palette, introduced elements from the beach, kept furniture light in wood tones and added some pattern and texture into his apartment with art, decorator items and furnishings.  He now has a space where he can work and relax in.

Denis requested his dining room to be “Lesehan” which is an Indonesian casual style of dining.  Its a very homely way to dine and brings people closer together.  It’s also widely common in Restaurants.

I choose a black and grey striped rug to anchor the dining room and used Denis’ own coffee table as the dining table.  Large bold stripe black, white, grey and yellow striped floor cushions were placed around the table.  The addition of a fun clock, some art and a bright yellow bowl meets all the requirements of Denis’ brief for a Lesehan dining room.  He has used the space on various occasions and is very happy with it.

A Vintage Wedding


My Decorator had the beautiful opportunity of designing and implementing the décor for Vanessa and James’ recent Wedding.   The couple even had their reception in the very hall where they first met in their early teen years – so cute!  It was a truly special day where wonderful memories were made.

The bride chose a vintage theme so I really enjoyed scheming and sourcing all things vintage.  Simple white lace bows graced the pews at the church and stunning flower arrangements created by one of Ness’s florist friends were displayed at the front of the alter.  The church itself featured amazing modern styled stain glass windows, these windows framed the lush native bush setting that surrounds the church.

The reception was in a function hall around the corner from the church, so we all gathered in the foyer of the hall and enjoyed Hors d’oeuvre, champagne, tea and coffee.  We then entered the reception room.  I had in true vintage theme used lace doilies for the centre of each round table that seated 10 and we placed a selection of bud vases with carnations in each, a vintage lantern, some crystal look tea light holders, pearls and a vintage framed photo of the bride and groom each table had a selection of various photos of when they first met many years ago along with recent photos which really added a personalised touch to the day.

Extra additions were vintage birdcages that featured old photo’s of love-birds, vintage postcards and the like these were hung on the walls and also asymmetrical from the ceiling suspending over the stage which created some depth of field.  The bride found a fabulous old suitcase that we draped with voile and used as the wishing well.

If you have a Wedding approaching and would like some help with your theme and adding that personal touch why don’t you contact us at My Decorator.  We would love to help!
