Soft furnishings with Styling You

I’ve popped Northside for a few days to visit my lovely friend Nikki who has just moved into the most gorgeous Queenslander in Brisbane after living on the Sunshine Coast for the past 20 years. I’ve never been to Nikki’s place and it’s always so lovely to visit the actual home of someone don’t you think? You get the perfect insight into someone’s style and creativity, to their personalities and their families. To me home is where the heart is, and this place exactly reflects the good heart that she has: filled with colour and love and abundance of fun and style.

The woman likes a cushion, what can I say. Is it any wonder we are friends? And she has embraced the pineapple motif like it’s nobodies business. The house is spotless (Mr SY has been VERY busy I suspect) and don’t think I haven’t appreciated every plumped cushion, every vignettting opportunity that has been presented to me.

I’m staying in her “lady room” which is her office as well as where she keeps ALL OF HER THINGS. Her pretty things. Her shiny things. And those shoes that SHOULD be mine (you know those hot ones?). While shoes can certainly get my blood flowing NOTHING makes me heart happier than superior soft furnishings, and there are plenty of those to go around here. We have some drinking planned, some shopping, some ladies lunches…I think it’s going to be a lovely few days.

    You have captured the essence of Nikki’s gorgeous home very well Beth and I need to get my hands on one of those “did I roll my eyes out loud” as it is one of my finer traits.Have a ball you three xx

  15. Hmmm – I wish that I lived there and not in Canberra (where our house was broken into this week). When I grow up I want to have all those lovely things and lots and lots of soft furnishings.

  16. Love all the mis-matched cushions on the bed – beautiful!

  17. I have house envy! Gorgeous home x

  19. I want to see more please….Gorgeous and inspiring. Gees I need some cash seriously. You have a lovely weekend in sunny QLD.

  20. Would love the roll your eyes cushion, very appropriate when you are the mother of teenagers!

  21. HappyandClear says

    That house! Swoon! Have a great time in my hometown of Brisbane. Hot lunch tip from me: get to Botanica at Red Hill for the best take away salad you have ever had in your life. I am not even kidding. Run don’t walk. It will blow your mind. They have a few gluten free treats too which are divine. X

  22. Amanda Garven says

    Can you find out where she gets all her pineapples?? I’ve been looking but I can’t find any! There’s no pineapple patches where I am 🙁

    • BabyMacBlogBeth says

      I’ve seen quite a few around the traps in various homewares stores…a few cushions are from Freedom too.

  23. Oh, how gorgeous! I’m so freakin’ jealous right now. Off to punch myself in the head with a flat, shitty, cushion.

  24. MotherDownUnder says

    My cushions are dropping like files thanks to a certain toddler…holes in a few, permanent stains on others…I can’t wait to find new covers and spruce up the couch!

  25. Amy Zempilas says

    Beautiful shots of a beautiful home! I love that two of my favourite bloggers are friends. A x x

  26. What I would have given to have been there. My liver probably. It’s on it’s way out anyway.
