(Creating a) Home Tour with Terese
Hello Being Tazim readers. Welcome to my guest post for the Home Decor & Interior Design Event 2010 about how I create for my home.
Or maybe I should say, ‘Gidday!’ Being Tazim readers. I live in Sydney Australia and my name is Terese, or T. The ‘T’ in designed to a T. I’ve been a blogger since January 2010 and luckily for me, I found Being Tazim through a young lady I know, Kylie, from ‘My Flying Ducks’, another guest blogger.
Of recent times I completed 2 Diplomas in Creative Arts – Surface Design and Colour Design. This reignited my passion for what I have always known is a big part of my life. Creativity.
This post is mainly to showcase some of the objects I have made to decorate the family’s beachside holiday home. This project is still very much a work in progress.
Let’s get started. For the spare bedroom…my most recent screen print and completed cushion. You can also see a photo frame in the background. This is just a frame from Ikea with pieces of Florence Broadhurst fabric offcuts. Very simple and effective. I’ll show you that a bit later.
Also in the spare bedroom. . .
Cheap glasses and vases with shells, starfish and small white stones are embellishments to add a beachy feel. The bell vase in the lefthand photo was about $A5.00 and the glass in the righthand photo was from a set of 6 purchased at Ikea. (Yep! I visit Ikea a lot, and I do mean a lot). These are on an Ikea ‘Lack’ shelf which also has a collage of photos my son Brendon took at the local beach. for link to Brendon’s website.
Artworks, or pieces of art, depending on how you look at it…
Some black and white photos I took at the same beach, Seven Mile Beach. A beautiful spot no matter what the weather. These were taken on a very overcast and blustery day.
They follow the line of the staircase leading to the lower floor and the wrought iron ‘body’ at the landing.
