Styling Idea # 367 Rich Tuesdays – A Moroccan Tour


Ok, it is no real surprise that Sara Chamberlain (me) wants to be a) rich and b) the queen of Morocco. We have been through both of these concepts many times before on FURNNISH and you, dear reader are always sympathetic to my fantasies (although, it would have been nice for someone to point out that I was using up two wishes when in fact the Queen  of Morocco is probably rich anyway…..oh well).

So, here on my return to Rich Tuesday’s I will give you a quick tour around my palace. (I am just being silly, but isn’t that what blogs are for??)

PS Thanks for reading my peeps!

PPS If your images are not lining up I am sorry, can’t work that out….won’t need to worry too much when I am the Queen I guess…others around to help with such tasks.

Styling Idea # 343 Rich Tuesday – At Home Bikram


I hate exercising in the morning. In fact, I am generally a morning person but exercising is my idea of hell. As part of my New Year resolutions I have decided to try to do 6am Bikram classes. I can assure you after completing my first one this morning, this is the very worst type of torture.

However, when I am rich I intend on building my own Bikram studio in my house….that way I can practice early but not according the class timetables.

This will be me…..(actually…my feet kind of look like this already)

Following class I will sit in the courtyard and enjoy the sunshine (courtyard looks like this!)

Styling Idea # 338 Rich Tuesday


I am very fortunate to be able to say that spending time at my parents house is like living in “Rich Tuesday’s”.

There is something opulent and relaxing about being at home. Of course this is attributable to the luxury that comes from not having to think too much or do too much or spend too much but Mum and Dad have really created a haven that is perfect to spend 38 degree heat days in. Without being ostentatious (this is little old Wagga after all) they are living the dream. And good on them. (For more blog heaven check out Daily Dream Decor– simply delicious)

For me this would look and feel kinda like this…

Styling Idea # 326 Calming Water


I’m feeling indulgent and happy to see Rich Tuesday. Rather than a “Styling Idea” so to speak I just want us to be quiet today….and imagine what the word “Escape” will mean when you are rich.

This is what I hope to find at the end of the fast lane…..

Styling Idea # 262 Rich Tuesday Printed Settee


If you really want to evoke a Parisian feel (yes, this is for my house in Paris) then you must look seriously at a settee- and I would advise upholstering in a fabric with a bit of personality and a lot of restraint. Floral is too predictable however a magical modern black and white print is perfect.

From the Right Bank


  • Style with colour block cushions and a coffee table stacked with colorful spines.
  • Ensure that you are balanced with other prints- this colourful ikat is so cheeky and could have been a risk but it works a treat.
  • Artwork hang nonchalantly and includes only real gallery pieces.
  • Roses roses and roses only. Serve with tea.

Styling Idea # 257 Rich Tuesday Closet ROOMS


I went shopping on the weekend- I forgot to mention yesterday because I wrote with one eye closed and the other dreaming it wasn’t Monday morning. So- what did I buy? Well, I actually went a bit crazy- 2 silk shirts, a Romance was Born Mini Dress, a Romance was Born blouse, a suit vest, a jumper, a watch, a clutch, a dressy singlet top and two pairs of heels. However my justification is this….I have been clothes shopping (properly- ie more than one shirt for work) twice this year! Once in Hawaii at Christmas time and once 3 months ago. I am a splurge shopper who spends endless hours in between hunting and whinging that I cannot find anything and than – MAGIC! Everything is what I want and on sale (I saved 1/3 off the total costs of everything). Success.

So, this being Rich Tuesday I have upgraded from previous posts on dressing rooms and spare rooms converted to wardrobes….cute but not exceptional. This is much more what I am talking about!

Styling Idea # 252 Rich Tuesdays


Sometimes Rich Tuesday is not about where I will live- but more about where I will holiday. Istanbul anyone? Check out  The House Hotel Bosphorus.

Book here should you wish….my passport is ready!

Styling Idea # 183 Neutral Palette Hotel Style


OK- did someone steal my week away from me this week?

Somehow my Monday (which I must confess I was terribly hangover for) and my Friday are almost the same blurry day. Now, that is great that work is going fast and I am not counting the days however I am not making enough money yet to invest in the anti-aging products I am going to need real soon if things keep moving at this rate. Not to mention other “deadlines” marriage, children, richness, big house etc that should all be moving towards me…….. STOP! I don’t want to miss them by going too fast

Ok. Here are some nice pictures to slow you down. Enjoy the moment.

Styling Idea # 180 Rich Tuesday


I think even when I am rich that the kitchen in the home should be warm and cosy- nothing too large and ostentasious- you don’t want it to look like it is a commercial space.

I think I would take inspiration from these three rooms to build to ultimate heart of my home!
