Friday Interior Love: Australian Creative/Eclectic

Happy Friday my dears! I am excited to kick off another weekend, how about you? Two days to relax, unwind, and enjoy some time with family and friends, plus squeeze in a bit of restorative yoga and a nice, hot bath. :) And I will hopefully make it to these open studios, which seems like a fun + festive start to November! If you live in the Boston area and decide to attend, maybe I will see you there? Anyway, on to the topic of the day: major interior inspiration brought to us via North Queensland, Australia!

This is a peek inside the home of Claire & family, including their newest addition, sweet little Eulalie. Claire, who blogs at One Claire Day, used to work as a stylist in Sydney before moving back to her hometown of North Queensland and starting her family. Her home is filled with the kind of personal, creative details that I know are meaningful to many of us.

Eulalie’s nursery takes my breath away. This is a small corner of it above, with colorful cushions creating a seating area on the floor, tiny buntings, a branch as curtain rod, DIY wall art, and a stunning hanging lamp. Wow, right?

Many of these beautiful details can be crafted by hand for very little cost and rounded out with unique vintage items, though the effect is rich and collected. One “splurge” in Eulalie’s room was Carmel the camel, seen on the floor above. Definitely worth it, in my humble opinion.

A sweet vignette curated atop a vintage green chest displays woodland creatures, dried branches, and a grouping of friendly art. Claire says the whole room came together around this vintage chest, and I can see why – it has tons of character!

Elsewhere in their home the vintage/eclectic look also prevails – I adore the small eating nook (top) and office above. The desk is a DIY and looks so simple to make, it kind of makes me question why any of us purchase new desks! Please do go visit Claire at One Claire Day to see more and to say hello. And enjoy your weekend!! xo Laura

    Wow! What a beautiful space! The workspace is something to aspire to and is getting bookmarked on my computer. I’m heading to check out more. Thanks for the inspiration. =)

    loving these pictures… I want a baby now just so that I can decorate a room like that! :) She almost has a Moroccan feel to the place that I just love! All that subtle color and earthy comfort.

    hello Laura, it has been a long time since I left you a message….
    Just a word to tell you your blog is always very “welcoming” (I don’t know if we say that in English ?!) but I really enjoy visiting it and to discover new ideas etc.
    You little “garcon” is becoming every day more cute and handsome :) !
    Take care and a bientot, from Geneva,

    Hi Laura,
    Saw your posts on BYW group and thinking of you… so thought I’d stop by.
    Your blog is really lovely and I gotta say that nursery above is so amazing. I’m going to share it on FB now.

    Wishing you pure success!
