what a nice way to change the feel of a room and not spend a whole of the time and money running around buying new furniture and accessories

The best advice I think here is don't decorate in a form of permanence. I have been so afraid of doing something in my space that someone might not like. After living in my space for almost 10 years, I have just discovered that it doesn't matter what others think, I don't necessarily like what they do in their space. At the end of the day I am in the middle of doing my space over - minus any hesitation. My style is evolving and I am loving finding inspiration from places like apartment therapy. Now my only draw back is the budget!

Hi Clare, I'm also a Sydneysider and into reclaiming and repurposing items. I also love to mix styles of decorating and making it work despite the odds. A question what it the item on the mantle piece in front of the mirror. It looks amazing. Also I am after tusks, faux of course, do you know where I can get some?

I have never been keen on my bedhead and I don't really want to spend a fortune on another bed. But now I am going to saw the timber bedhead off and make my own in the colours I am wanting. Thanks for the inspiration. I am also faced with a small space and a limited budget.

The chest of draws looks great, shows creativity. No cookie cutter this home. We could all take a leaf of paint drip out of your book!

what a great idea, will try to remember when it comes to floor choices, in my next home - not sure when that might be.

I love it when someone does their own home, their way. Great job, lots of personality.

I must confess I love the fact everything has a story, is either a hand me down, from the trash or craigslist. I am doing my place and have a mix of new and old. I like the unexpected and the place feeling like a home. Its refreshing to see an individual style their homes on a budget rather than having some swanky stylist come in a 'meet to brief'. I say bravo, job well done, looks amazing.

I love the frame arrangement, looks magical. It has inspired me to collect frames from my local vintage store and start scoping a blank wall to fill

I made my apartment feel new by selling my crazy aztec lounges and replacing them with a contemporary plain leather modular lounge. Once the lounge was gone so did everything else and finally did all those projects I was always going to do. My place now looks and feels new.

I bought this book on back order from amazon. Had to wait till it was released and then wait for it to be delivered - to Australia 2.5 weeks. So worth the wait I just love it. Suggestions for next year how about doing an international version or chapter, I am sure here are a few of us in Aust willing to accommodate. Just putting it out there.
