To paint the interior of the door to match the outside(black)? Or leave it the white? I Found these faux cedar trees on Amazon for outside and to also cover part of the window pane for privacy. There will be an easy DIY project coming for these guys in the spring! But for now I’m thinking a few strands of Christmas lights to let our neighbors know how serious we are about Christmas decor 😉 we as in (me) 😂
I’ve always been drawn to nature. It’s restorative to my soul and points me to something bigger than myself.
The photo that inspired this piece was taken on a walk I took with Finn on the trails by our house.
I’m excited, and nervous, to encase this piece in resin!
This piece along with a few more will be up for The Watercolor Show At @local_color_studio_gallery! The show reception is this Saturday at 6:00. Join me and 4 other local artists as we showcase our watercolor work!
WOW! Just wow 😍😍 Seeing Audenza goodies in their new homes never fails to inspire us. Our seriously talented customer @interiorcurve has styled our Ginkgo Leaf Occasional Table to absolute perfection here 👌 ❤️ _
P.S. if you’re not on our mailing list, then get on it, pronto. You will not want to miss what we’ve got coming up 🙌 #LiveFabulousAndFearless
I’ve spent a while in here over the last few days, preparing for a talk I’m doing at #2020sorted tomorrow. I haven’t used this room nearly as much as I thought I would, having given up my part time job in April to crack on with the adoption process but it’s so useful to have the storage space and the girls’ love using it to play ‘schools’ or for when they play ‘going to work.’
All being well though, this will become a nursery sometime soon and I can’t wait to change it up a bit. We’ll be keeping the mustard half wall (we only decorated it last year and I chose those colours with a nursery in mind) but I will put some extra shelves in and change up the pictures to make it a bit more fun. Plus a cot of course!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week! I’m away from home til Friday evening so looking forward to sleeping til 7:30am tomorrow... what a lie in! 😂

Tip #5 - If you are partial to a bold colour but think it might be too much on all your walls then use the colour on an accent wall and make it your focal point. Here, the white sofa balances out the visual weight of the room and the natural coloured accent pieces bring warmth into the space. #decorpowellriver#townsite#colourmyhome 👭
Hey gang! Tonight’s grid share is this corker from @live_by_george There were so many great entries today I’ve had a lovely time looking through them all. Just a gentle reminder to follow all hosts and this months guest host @leilatalmadgeinteriors if you’re playing along. Thanks guys!! W x
I’ve made the perfect little spot for Christmassy photos 😁 I love the way the light shines off of the glaze highlighting the metallic speckles 😍 next week is going to be focused on sorting out all of my online shops. I have made some pots up with my new colours that will be ready to send out within a couple of days of ordering. 💕
Hanging out in the Tiki Hut on this beautiful day! I was rooting around up in storage and found my huge Tiki Collection amongst the Christmas decor (coincidence....I think not!) I’ve been an avid collector since I was 16 or so. I’d dream of a time when I would be able to visit and I feel so fortunate to have been able to live and own homes on a few different Hawaiian islands! It’s just as magical as you’d think....have you ever been or is it on your bucket list? 🗿 🌺🏝🌋
The other magical thing that I’d like to mention today is this GORGEOUS vintage Moroccan Berber pillow from @artmoroccanberber 🤩 I absolutely love the colors and the quality is second to none. I own more than a few things from this Etsy shop and I could fill my whole house with their beautiful goodies! Side note, How cute is Sage Irie on this @thejungalow pouf?! 💕🐶
Have a good one, friends!✌🏻 .
Finished! This piece is a 12x12 inch cradled wood panel with acrylic paint. The edges are raw wood. I really love how much depth the wood panel gives my painting style. Can't wait to get started on the next one!

So I went a bit insta AWOL over the last few weeks.. sorry about that 🙄 but it feels really good to take a break 👌🏻 I hate feeling like I’m sat on my phone all night after work when really I should be cuddling Daphne 🤷🏻♀️ In other news no major DIY has taken place in Terrace 25 as of late. I am however ALWAYS faffing about with this gallery wall. No matter what I do the frames never seem to sit straight 🙄 we still need a few more prints to completely fill this wall but that will have to wait until after chrimbo now as I seriously need to start my Christmas shopping!
We will be starting our next project in the New Year which will be our master bedroom. I can’t wait to get stuck in and I’ve got some big ideas 🤩 but for now I’m going to make the most of the house being dust free for a while 👀
While I had put aside 3 months to update my website shop's SEO and complete client projects, I fell behind in sharing some of my still life paintings and other works. (This one, Lemons and Geraniums is in my shop.) I have a lot of new email subscribers via alexandraswistak.com and whether it's the result of all that refreshed SEO and/or sharing work here, I won't know exactly until I look at the stats, but feel very grateful. So thank you for joining my list. And if you purchased art through my November 8th email, I give you a big thank you hug!
With time constraints, it's not always possible to share everything here. However it's important for subscribers to receive special benefits, so do sign up for my email list if you are interested in my work.
Melbourne modernist architect Robin Boyd’s first completed the Pettigrew home in 1946 - It was built over three decades in three stages, and has now found its new custodians, a young family who have honoured the Boyd legacy. Having worked with the homeowners on a past project, the Simone Haag @simonehaag team ❤️ were appointed to assist with Furnishings, in collaboration with Flack Studio💙 @flackstudio_ who led a respectful yet contemporary remodel of this historic house. Amazing!

When was the last time you had a really good night's sleep? There are definitely times in our lives where a good night’s sleep feels out of reach and I know it's something many of us struggle with (me included), for many different reasons. In search of some ideas I found the Sleep Council website and it was interesting because I found myself nodding in agreement with their top tips, whilst also knowing that it can be hard to put them into practice!
Den lilla veggen lever enn så lenge, men har veldig lyst til å prøve rosa også.
Skap fra @ikeanorge , bord fra gjenbruksbutikken, stoler fra @designforflere og lampe fra @exponova - lett blanding! 🙃
⭐️Liker du å gjøre om hjemme?
The livingroom wall is still purple, but would like to try out a shade if pink as well.
⭐️Do you enjoy redecorating?
Did you know an elf dies for every tree that is put up in November ?!? ... I would NEVER condone or take part in such ridiculous & barbaric behaviour ✋🏼 !! Strictly no trees in my house until December, it’s farrrr too early 🙃🎄🤫😁
I'd love to fill Josiah's ceiling with glow in the dark stars. 😍 I remember having them as a kid and staring up at them as I fell asleep. It was so magical. ✨
This kid however, never sleeps in his own bed. 😒 Lately he's been scared that someone could be hiding under his bed and he doesn't like that his room is the furthest away from mine. Every night seems to be musical beds and he will hop from Hannah's bed to Tahlis and then to mine.
Any tips for keeping a 6 year old in his own bed? 🙏
And where can I find glow in the dark stars in Aus these days that aren't going to destroy the paint on the ceiling. ⭐🌟🌠
There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy. Famous quote by... 'Laura'. 😂 Tahli has asked if she could write a little quote on the letterboard to put on her #shelfie . I suggested she write 'Why be moody when you can shake your booty', Josiah suggested she write 'cucumber'. She chose something a little more 'mature'. 🙄 Kids these days!
I just popped this stunning 'Peachy' print from @kristie.porters.art on the shelf for now, I absolutely love it! Although, I doubt it will stay up here for long. I think Tahli will object to having a bum on her shelf. She always whinges about me shaking my own.
Who even raised this kid?!
