Girls Night In

Last year I prop styled a television commercial for The Cancer Council's annual fundraiser, Girls Night In. 

Funnily enough, a few days after the gig, my boyfriend was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and my aunty was getting treated for breast cancer. (They have both now beaten it, and are recovering well!)

It was my first time at styling for tv, and it was very different from the usual still life prop styling I do, but still loads of fun. 

Here's a couple of snippets from the ad....

Virtual Interior Design Concept Boards

Today I thought I'd share some edesign/virtual design boards I did recently for clients for their living spaces.






My clients received their visual concept boards (based on their needs, style & budget) as well as a list of sources to buy the products, paint suggestions & floor-plan.  I worked with their existing furniture pieces that they wanted to keep and gave tips on refurbishing.

These were lots of fun to do and would love to do more!! 

Contact me if you'd love a room in your home or a space redecorated for just $300/room or visit my website for more info.
