{The Nest Design Files} A Sweet Pastel Bedroom

While we are eternal lovers of clean, clear, crisp white – sometimes a little colour pop is needed.

{Love birds} Love is.. Rachael & Mitchell

‘What is a soulmate? Well, it’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else. It’s someone who makes you a better person, well, actually they don’t make you a better person… you do that yourself– because they inspire you. A soulmate is someone who you carry with you forever. It’s the one person who knew you, and accepted you, and believed in you before anyone else did or when no one else would. And no matter what happens.. you’ll always love them’. – Dawson’s Creek

couple

It is with the most heartfelt truth that I say I have never seen two people more in love than the beautiful Mr & Mrs Thurn. They are young, beautiful and genuinely the most beautiful of souls intertwined together forever. It was an absolute privilege to be invited to share this beautiful day with this fantastic couple.

Special moments: Rachael gave the photographer a love note to give to Mitchell just before the ceremony because when we dated in year 7 that’s basically all our relationship consisted of – love letters

Another incredibly special moment was when Mitchell organised dry ice on the dance floor which made it feel and look like we were on a cloud. This was nice because they wanted an outdoor dance floor but the weather didn’t permit. It was a moment no one will forget.

{Design} Can I see your drawers?

I have found what I have been searching for – Admittedly I wasn’t even sure that I was searching, yet I feel like I have finally found some hidden treasure that should have always been mine.

Let me introduce you to the ‘Recycled Timber Luck of the Drawer’ from Jumbled in Orange.

O-MY-DESIGN-GODS!drawers-family-love-tree3_1024x1024

The drawer is made from recycled timber and has six drawers. It has been hand painted with pastel coloured triangles and a wax finish.

This is so popular you need to order now for delivery in February next year!

You may wish to save your pennies though, it retails for $1,995.00 plus shipping.. Ah dreams…

Is there an Incy Interiors addiction support group?

O for the love of all things holy. How blissful is this room? I am completely smitten with the Ellie cot from Incy interiors. It is beautiful and girly and simply lovely! Now, I best start saving my pennys…see you soon Incy!

There are not enough words to describe the love I have for this room
