"Breathing Space"

This weekend my home was featured in the Melbourne Herald Sun Home supplement magazine. As nervous as I was, it is quite an exciting moment to turn the page and see a feature spread on yourself, promoting you & you business, such a fantastic opportunity.The article was written by a delightful journalist, Louise Surette, who so perfectly translated my style & decorating principles into print. Chris Groenhout is a gifted photographer, who knowing it was my birthday, was very diplomatic and strategic when it came time to taking the 'kindest' photo of yours truly.

"...Lovely shades of white & cream, plenty of fresh flowers & smatterings of beach mementos are all part of her signature style. The delightful aroma of scented candles also helps render her home utterly tranquil..."

"...the best advice Claire can give is to remember that you need to enjoy your space and surround yourself with the things you love..."
The feedback and enquiries from this article have already been amazing. My thanks to the Home magazine team for their wonderful enthusiasm and professionalism in facilitating this article.
Wishing you all a wonderful week, & with the arrival of these evening winter chills outside, enjoy retreating to the warmth of your own home haven at the end of each day...:-)
