INSPIRE 2019 – Wrap Up

Inspiration By a show of hands, who thinks it’s a great idea to whisk a team off to a beautiful location, surrounding everyone with beautiful interior spaces, and spending two days talking about inspirations and aspirations, for team members and the business? Yup, we see all those hands! And what better setting for all of this good stuff than spending time at Soul of Gerringong (we may have already mentioned them in a Space Cush – but we can’t get enough). Why was the Inspire 2019 conference important? As a bunch of stylists and designers, we’re in the business of inspiration. But in order to inspire, one must be inspired (a wise person somewhere once said). We loved reflecting on the successes of 2018 – all the beautiful homes, the focus on the many, many people we have the privilege to inspire (close to 1,000 homes!), and launching an industry...

Will HUE be my Valentine?

Minimalism and neutral palettes are kings when it comes to interior design and property styling. And for good reason; there’s just nothing like the freshness of bright whites, the boldness of rich blacks, and the effortlessness of greys, creams, and woods. But this does mean that, sometimes, we neglect colour in our styling-lives (guilty as charged!). It’s why we dedicated part of our 2019 Design Direction to hues. A world without colour is just not for us.

BOWERBIRD Space Crush: Soul of Gerringong

Gerringong, known for its beautiful beaches, surf breaks, dramatic headland, and delicious food and wine, has everything we want in a vacay destination. But have you heard? There’s a new kid on the block and they’re getting quite a lot of attention for their trendy style and light-hearted character. The Soul of Gerringong is the new ‘IT GIRL’ and we’re their number one fans. The Soul of Gerringong is the perfect symbol of its country meets the sea location. Bringing out the country through the heritage stone fireplace and oversized barn doors, then matching it oh so beautifully with the beach shack white panelling and poolside cabana. We couldn’t have brought these two elements together better if we tried (yeah, applause is well deserved). There are 4 beautiful abodes to choose from: The Farmhouse, The Barn, The Cabana, or The Cottage. Each has a unique flare that makes it feel...

BOWERBIRD BLACK – The one thing all real estate agents and vendors can agree on

If there’s one thing we love more than the detail – and we love the detail a LOT – it’s finding solutions that delight our customers in the property styling process. As you can imagine, it’s no easy feat. But just over 4 months ago, we launched BOWERBIRD BLACK – our premium, “peace of mind” offering with a guarantee of success. We want to make sure property styling is as seamless and rewarding as possible for everyone, and BOWERBIRD BLACK ticks all of the boxes. Well, except for one. When we first introduced BOWERBIRD BLACK, it was only available to vendors whose real estate agents were BOWERBIRD BLACK partners. Since then, we’ve received an overwhelmingly positive response from our customers. So, why not share the love? That’s right, we’re opening up BOWERBIRD BLACK to all real estate agents and vendors, because with BOWERBIRD BLACK, everyone wins. Curious to see why...

First home buyers – why your new pad’s style shouldn’t be “BASIC”!

So you’ve bought your first home, YAY! But now you’re broke, BOO! What happens next? How do you go about furnishing your new home? Sure you have some hand me downs from your very kind family, but they may not entirely be your style, right?

moody dark tones

Inspired by: Moody

Ah, our MOODY palette, she’s a good one! If you haven’t yet seen our MOODY palette in action, you’re in for a treat. She striking and deliberate, and 100% inspired by darker tones. This is how we like to describe her: Completely unapologetic for her striking contemporary statements and broody sentiments, we were inspired by midnight stillness and an undertone of affluence. Influenced by introspectiveness, contemplation and wisdom, the darker tones deliberately and knowingly embrace a bold way of life.
