Megan Hass Melbourne’s fashion illustrator shares her home with her husband, architect Craig Yelland and their two children. Their penthouse is located on the roof of an 18th century church. The renovation saw the exterior preserved with the interior gutted, allowing Megan and Craig to start from skratch. I love how she kept the base neutral which means you can completly change the mood with art and furnishings. Stay tuned as we peek inside her wardrobe, which she says is her favorite room in the house ‘It’s my happy place’. Check out her illustrations we blogged about in our yesterday’s post here.
I am absolutely delighted to share with you the work of my favorite fashion artist Dallas Shaw. This ultra talented artist is the go to illustrator for the fashion world’s most style savvy insiders like DKNY’s PR Girl, The Bag Snob Ladies, and Rent the Runway, just to name a few. Take a look at just a small sampling of her work – a breath of fresh air, I say! We blogged about her beautiful feminine design studio here before check it out.
As promised, I would like to share with you my baby shower photos, which was two weekends ago. Baby shower was styled and planned by me, along with the help of my sisters. I absolutely love turquoise, but with the gender of the baby a surprise, I put in baby pink to pair with turquoise details. I used these beautiful printables from Ontobaby, as I ran out of time to design my own. With a theme pink or blue, I created invites as well as food labels and thank you cards used on Revlon nail polishes in pink and blue which my guests took home
Wishes for the baby, was my absolutely favourite as I had a laugh reading them all and it is a beautiful memory from the day which I have put in the baby book
Baby showers was filled with much fun, laughter, food, family, friends, gifts, and let’s not forget- the games! It was a beautiful day spent with my closest family and friends I will cherish forever.

Currently I am loving the sunshine autumn in Sydney and high 20′s temperature, it feels like late summer. Never underestimate the power of a yellow colored room eithrt. It might seem a bit much at first thought but yellow is jam packed with happiness. I think yellow can be beautiful when used with discretion. I am loving my first week off work and morning walks with the girls so I am currently craving some yellow!
Thank God it is friday! Another week is (almost) behind us, another weekend is awaiting to be enjoyed! Don’t you love Fridays?
This week has been a busy last week at work before I take my maternity leave. My last day at the office was a good one. My work colleagues spoilt me with a lovely morning tea, some presents and lots of thanks and hugs. A heart warming day… And being reminded I need to come back at some stage. The next chapter has begun… Life keeps the clocks ticking over, and we need to remember to enjoy the journey… Not just look forward to the destination.
Before signing off I wanted to give you a photo update on my pregnancy. Another reason is that I’m thinking to become a bit more personal with this blog, meaning that I might be sharing more bits of my life with all of you (there will be plenty of fun moments when the baby arrives and I want to share those joyful moments with you – my virtual family). Tomorrow is my baby shower, so make sure you look out for that post soon!
