Blush Lane & Co. The Stylist’s Renovation
Sometimes a slower pace is best. For homeowner Belinda, she knew that making careful changes, one step at a time would go a long way towards achieving her dream home. Owning a beautiful homewares store (Blush Lane & Co) and having an eye for design certainly helps, but it was the planning, prioritising and dreaming that has transformed this sweet Melbourne home. “I knew if I changed my flooring it would bring my home to the “now”. But more importantly, it would suit my own style and palette that had evolved over time. I knew it was that one big element that would bring everything together.”
With a budget in place and style in mind, Belinda chose a beautiful yet incredibly practical hybrid flooring. From dark and dated to fresh and current, her home is now a light and inviting haven with AquaSmart Blackbutt selected. A dreamy space to live and the perfect backdrop for her wares. “The colour and look were very important for me. The aesthetic of my home is a lighter palette with neutrals and I knew the light flooring will tie in perfectly. It brings a freshness and openness to my home and it’s super easy to clean makes my weekly mop much more enjoyable! I love my new flooring; it has completely transformed my home.”
To complete the beautiful renovation, the carpets chosen were a textured wool pile. Belleza Orsano in Air Tunnel brings warmth underfoot while creating a sophisticated and current aesthetic. The two flooring materials offer a tasteful contrast of colour and texture while being complimentary in style and tone. A beautiful renovation from the floor, up!
Belinda’s Interior Design Tips
Belinda is known for her tasteful and trend-driven homewares store. We asked her for some
top styling and design tips, from her house to ours.
- Mood boards. They are an excellent tool for you to visualise and bring everything
together. It just makes the process a little less overwhelming when you can see it in
front of you.
- Don’t feel like you have to buy everything new – sometimes all you have to do is
make some cosmetic changes. My palate slightly evolved as I was drawn to more
neutral tones, and they still worked beautifully with my existing pieces.
- Fresh flowers are always an instant pick me up and lighting a candle too. This is
especially important to me as I spend more time at home.
- One of my favourite decorating tools is creating vignettes of beautiful objects.
Collecting and arranging a group on your dining table or side/ coffee table (or any
surface really!) in the living room is an instant “pick me up”. Try some fresh blooms,
candles and a couple of your favourite ceramic pieces.
