Decor Inspiration for Our Home in Australia

This post we are taking a break from the personal stories and travel to get inspired by interior design. I have not had my own place since giving up my apartment in March 2016 and I miss decorating so much! I can’t even tell you how excited I am to settle into a new home in Australia and really create a space that feels inspiring and fits my style again. Granted this will be mine AND Stephen’s place so I can’t go too girly, but I am so thankful he is all in for letting me handle the decorating. His only requirements- bright, light and beachy. I am pretty sure I can accomplish that!

In my old apartment I had accumulated SO many things over the years that I just kept moving from place to place. Before leaving for Europe I went through a major purge and got rid of about 70% of my belongings. At first it was difficult, but now I am so glad I only kept those important pieces that really mean something to me and got rid of the junk. With the exception of a few knick knacks and artwork pieces we will basically be starting from scratch with our home in Australia. I can’t wait to really design a space for the first time instead of just making what I have at the time work. Below are some inspirational ideas I’d love to incorporate into our home down under.

Bright Bedding Update

Giving your bedroom a mini makeover doesn’t have to be expensive! It can be as simple as changing your duvet cover. I am constantly updating my home by finding little things to tweak, but doing things on a budget is always key.

Recently while doing the usual weekend straightening up around the house, I removed my awesome/crazy duvet cover to throw it in the wash. Of course I still love my indian inspired pattern duvet, but I realized I actually felt more relaxed and clear minded with the plain white down comforter. The room felt brighter and more airy so I decided it was time to shake things up a bit.
