    When it comes to home decor and bedroom styling I like my room to depict a clean, fresh ambience and provide a good air flow. My bedroom is where I go to unwind and read and it’s important that the space correlates with my wellbeing and mood. I adore neutral coloured bedrooms, with delicate pieces of furniture and accessories. Lighting and the ambience it provides is really important and I do recommend up to three different lighting focal points within a room, ranging from ceiling lights to bedside lamps. It’s also fun to play with a variety of different lightbulbs so that you can have a choice of whether to have a bright light on or something softer to suit your mood. Cushions and throws add character to a bedroom and provide different levels of texture which can make a room fabulous. I’m very fond of shabby chic furniture in a bedroom because it conveys a very romantic Parisian flair. With the correct accessories and a delicate neutral palette a glamorous shabby chic bedroom can be achieved and fabulously lived in.

  • Feast Your Eyes on the Amazing DIY Bookcase This Couple Made for Their Kids

    In an effort to qualify for an Australian DIY competition show called The Block, one couple built a very impressive, one-of-a-kind display for their books — and it's now getting attention from more than just television producers.

    As they were scheming how to make it onto the popular television series, Jess and Sinclair Breen came up with the idea to build a geometric bookcase, which they ended up creating in less than a day for about $705. Soon after sharing the final design on their Facebook page, Jess & Sinclair for The Block 2019, it quickly went viral.

    Jess was inspired to create the unit after she saw an image of something similar on Pinterest. With some help from a coworker who specializes in graphic design, the pair created a sketch of what they wanted it to look like with all the necessary measurements and angles. From there, they gathered supplies, mapped it out on their wall, and got to work assembling the bookcase.

    When it came to execution, precise measurements made all the difference. "It's really important that the wall space is measured first before ordering or cutting or buying panels," Jess tells CountryLiving.com. "Be very careful when measuring, ordering, cutting, or buying the shelving as every millimeter matters."

    To ensure the bookshelves had enough support and would stay in place, she and her husband attached a thicker, faux wall to their existing wall. "Make sure that the wall you mount the boxes on has enough studs inside the wall so the panels can be drilled and secured where you need them to be," she says. (Their added wall is made from a series of secured medium-density fiberboard (MDF) panels.)

    And yes — the couple really did complete the construction over a weekend. After the faux wall was built and painted, assembling and affixing the shelves to the wall didn't take much time at all. "We started creating the boxes from the panels at 8 a.m. on our 11th wedding anniversary — not our usual idea of fun! — and finished at midnight that day," Jess says.

    Now the family has a fun place to store their favorite books. "We find that it holds a lot of our books and [it's] accessible for my boys, Jack and Ollie, to reach their own, which are all positioned at the bottom of the bookcase," Jess adds.
