Kitchen Styling Ideas on Style for a Happy Home //Click for details

When it comes to styling your home, kitchens can be a tricky part to really make your mark on, without splashing a lot of cash.

Mini Makeover: Make a Serving Set with Chalk Paint™

Mini Makeover: Make a Serving Set with Chalk Paint™ on Style for a Happy Home // Click for DIY instructions

Chalk Paint™ provided by Annie Sloan Unfolded Australia* When I was approached recently to try out Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan, I'll admit that I was a little bit reluctant. I'd only ever seen it used in a shabby chic way and that's just not my style. But after attending their event at ProBlogger on the Gold Coast, I learnt that it doesn't have to be done in that style and I … [Read more...]

Get Clear About the Life You Want – A 10 Year Vision

Get clear about the life you want and run like hell at it - Susan Petersen via Style for a Happy Home // Click though for more

Things are so different from this time last year, and yet kind of the same. I spent a lot of time last year soul searching and working out what on earth I wanted from this gift of a life. Before last year I'd never really looked beyond 27. It's not totally surprising with my Mother passing away at that age. It loomed so large, everything after it would have to be a breeze. It's … [Read more...]

Mini Makeover: My Home Office

Last week I was feeling overwhelmed by the layout of my home office (and all the things that had accumulated on the flat surfaces) so I decided to give my space a mini makeover. Sometimes a mini makeover requires new stuff to be purchased, but this one really just needed me to rethink the layout of the furniture and find a place for all the things that were taking up bench … [Read more...]

Hello! Happy Saturday! For this week's Australia themed round up I thought I'd look for some super fun products that I'd have in an Australian Beach Home. This one might be a little controversial, as everyone here has their own opinions on what a beach home should look like, but I decided to round up the ones that felt the most beachy to me. I'd love to add any of these to a … [Read more...]

Mini Makeover: Australian Treats Gift Box on Style for a Happy Home

Around this time last year one of my closest friends (who just happened to guest post for me last Tuesday) moved back from 5 years living overseas. She lives in a different state to me and I wanted to surprise her with a 'welcome home' gift box upon her return. I decided that I would buy her some Aussie treats that she missed whilst overseas with a note about how she could now … [Read more...]

Half Marathon Training Part 3: When to Fold 'Em on Style for a Happy Home

I didn't expect that this post would come so soon into September, with Part 2 not being that long ago, but sometimes stories need to be shared when they happen, and not when the editorial calendar suggests. What began as a way for me to remember and share my journey to my first half marathon is finishing up early, with a "maybe next year". 5 weeks ago I pulled up sore … [Read more...]

Finding My Way (lessons from problogger ’14)

Finding My Way (lessons from problogger '14) on Style for a Happy Home

I've been keeping a secret from you: I lost my blogging mojo. It left somewhere around the time I got sick in June and it decided to find a tropical island to hang out on for the winter without me. It's not that I don't love this space, because I really do. It's just that I got caught up in "so-and-so does this to grow their blog" and "(another) so-and-so does that to grow … [Read more...]
