Styling Idea # 85 Yellow and Pink


Last week I was a lucky assistant indeed. I had the pleasure to work with one of the industries best. Megan Morton no less. Really has there ever been a more talented person who is so incredibly relaxed and focused at the same time. Her world is one of perfect image creation and flawless vision while all the time being a cool-calm-collected cat who adores her family and has fun with life. Read more about her at Lucy’s blog The Design Files you will see that she shares the same sentiment.

I cannot share with you the details of the shoot but I was inspired by all things pretty.



  • Often more likely to be kept a bedroom combination (and possibly a little girls room at that) I love how this simple combos makes an appearance in the living room or desk! To make this okay you need to keep the colour touches very subtle
  • The use a strong frame in the first print is perfect- the black frame and iron work around the fireplace keep this room from feeling fairytale. When opting for softer palettes ensure that have something similar to anchor them with.
  • Painted furniture or teak are perfect for this – dark wood will look a bit dated and blood wood or oaks will get too wishy-washy. A painted table setting with pink and yellow finishes is perfect.
  • Can’t think of any other way to get the pink and yellow working together- do it with cushions- one stripe, one colour and one printed- I love this print available online now from the new boutique Ada and Darcy. Check it out!

Pagoda Cushion available online from Ada and Darcy

Other things to note

  • Did anyone get to the Society Inc market on the weekend? I missed it and want to know what I missed out on??
  • I bought my first piece of artwork on the weekend!! Cannot wait to tell you more about it- so thrilled xx
  • Megan let me have free range of the Propery last week – styling heaven. Check out my displays if you are in at B2 (before someone more talented comes along and changes them)
