My favourite gallery

When it comes to art to complete a home my clients are always interested in not only my thoughts but also which galleries I suggest they visit. Whilst Sydney and Melbourne are bursting with fantastic exhibitions and many gifted artists, on the Gold Coast the art scene is a little smaller so its important for me to work with someone that has not only an outstanding reputation but the skills and knowledge I trust.
I recently caught up with Anthea Polson at her gallery in Main Beach. Not only is this one of my favourite galleries for its diverse range of represented and exhibiting artists, but when it comes to selecting art Anthea and her team's guidance are second to none.

Anthea is currently running a portrait show which is well worth a look in her recently expanded space.

Happy holidays

Having never seen a white Christmas I'm loving these pictures from a very cold but beautiful looking Netherlands.

Well it has been an amazing year for me and my team in our new location and larger store. We have adapted and continued to grow through some troubling times in the world, thanks to the wonderful clients and friends that have supported us. I have loved the opportunity to work on and help create some beautiful homes and am excited to be starting several new projects in the New Year, after my return from a short break traveling through Rajasthan.

I'm looking forward to continuing this blog through 2011 where I hope to share those things that inspire my travels and work.

Tonight I'm off to my favourite hotel Palazzo Versace to finally relax after such a busy time and soak up some festive ambiance. Yeah!!

Wishing you all the very best for the holiday season!

Christmas Sale

With only a few sleeps to Christmas and lots of new stock due to arrive early in January, we have decided to start our annual post Boxing Day sale one week early this year! For all of us who love a bargain (and who doesn't) now is the time to add that finishing touch to your home before the holidays begin.
We have reduced furniture, lighting, rattan and so much more throughout the store. Pieces include three seater rattan sofas (as shown) reduced from $1,595.00 to just $795.00, Caribbean inspired bamboo furniture available in chairs, tables and cabinets all 50% off, lighting 50% off, as well as a huge range of cushions and accessories.
As the saying goes, stock is limited!!

Bedroom Luxury

We have been very busy unpacking truck loads of new stock over the past few days including some beautiful new linen. Deliveries have included the latest designs from Biancia Lorenne in comforters and cushions as well as the Crellini linen bedspreads in assorted designs.
Our different collections are available in cashmere, velvet and cool cotton. As always these pieces are limited.

New lighting collection

Tripod lamp available in black or natural finish as either a table or floor lamp.
Retro lamp available in black or white as either a floor or table lamp.
Tripod spot light available in black only.
After such a busy time last week we were very excited to receive our new lighting collection. I love the black tripod table lamps which seemed an instant hit with our customers. I can not wait to use the retro floor lamp on a home I am currently working on as it has just the right aesthetic.
Aria Home has a large variety of lamps in store at the moment from elegant crystal and classic designs to earthy wood finishes along side our new collection.

Pretty in pink

I thought I would post these two images of one of the projects we have been working on today. Our client's love of pink is obvious with the custom-made dining chairs and cushions to the installation of the Designers Guild wallpaper. We have also installed motorised blinds throughout this apartment, combined with elegant sheers it softens the room while still giving it a contemporary feel.

The rush begins

With Christmas sneaking up so quickly it seems like I have a million things on the go. Next week I have several installations to complete which as always I am very excited about, I will try and post images as the work is installed. In store our popular gift lines are moving fast. From books to boxed candles, votives to room fragrances there is something for everyone.
Also all our bleached antique furniture has been heavily reduced. As these are all one off pieces this offer is limited!!

Flora cushion collection

Aria Home is always recognised for its wide variety of stunning cushions.
Arriving just before Christmas our new flora collection of hand embroidered and beaded cushions will be a stunning addition. The calm linen tones with bone detail create a relaxed coastal look.

Feeling blue....

Upholstered in one of my favourite fabrics this pale blue sofa looks very smart but relaxed at the same time. Velvet cushions and a cable knit cashmere throw complete this beautiful look. All available in store.

"Cushions are us"

I love the way cushions can change the look of an entire room. They breath new life into an old sofa and add colour and zing to any bedroom. Most of all they offer a comfortable resting spot.
In store we have a wide rage of styles, shapes and colours all filled with soft down. If you cannot find what you are looking for from our exclusive ready made collection, we also custom make for both indoor and outdoor settings.

Just too cute

We have had this cute Louis style chair upholstered in a nautical inspired outdoor fabric. Perfect for relaxed coastal living.....

Mirror Image

Today we unpacked another of our popular mirrors which are available in both a black or natural finish.
I love the casual feel of a mirror just leaning against the wall.... and the Chinese chair in front completes the look.

A white Christmas

Today we installed our first Christmas window which is a vision of white and silver.....
We have been so busy unpacking the many great gift giving solutions and decorating ideas that make Aria Home so popular during this season. From a thoughtful gift to exclusive pieces we have inspired ideas for that someone special.

New Linen instore!

With Christmas only seven weeks away it seems everyone is starting to prepare their home for the arrival of family and friends! With this in mind what better way is there to spruce up the guests bedroom than beautiful linen. We have just started to receive the new collection by Bianca Lorenne which as you can see looks so inviting.
We also stock an extensive collection of cotton throws and blankets by Bemboka as well as summer bedspreads, comforters and towels. Our bespoke collection of designer cushions completes the look.

Back from my travels

After an amazing trip through India and China it is great to be home again. During my travels I was constantly inspired by so many different things, from unique products and crafts to inspired combinations of colour and design.
Will there be new furniture and decorating products in store? With so many wonderful products in the world who could resist bringing parts of that back to Australia! Over the months ahead we have several containers due to arrive as well as our own exclusive range of furniture that I am very excited about.
In my absence Aria Home Interiors has continued to receive plenty of new goodies. This retro inspired sofa and ikat finished chest of drawers has just arrived and been placed in our latest window display.

Singapore Sling

With a day to spend in Singapore who could resist lunch at the famous Raffles hotel. The lush gardens and colonial architecture is all so relaxing (and a little hot if sitting outdoors). With shopping in mind I also visited the new Marina Bays Sands shopping complex. It is a stand out not just for the amazing modern architecture but for pure indulgence. With what seems like every luxury brand in the world all in one place I'm sure there will be a little excess baggage when returning home....

Ahh......... the Ralph Lauren store, just stunning.
and my favourite Dior Men.

A taste of India

I've been in India a week now and what a truly amazing time I have had. Everyday has been so different and yes sometimes a little shocking. After a bumpy four hour drive arriving at the Taj Mahal was breathtaking, there is nothing like seeing and touching such a beautiful monument.
I have posted just a couple of images, I love the women lining up so much colour..... Next my travels will take me to China which I am sure will hold many more surprises.

We love colour!!

This is our latest window display full of crisp red, white and blue.
With strong Asian influences that feel perfectly at home in our tropical environment, there are a wide variety of pieces to this collection. We have occasional tables and storage cupboards as well as several styles of both arm and dining chairs in store.
Tomorrow I'm off on a travel adventure to India. A visit to the Taj Mahal will be one of my first stops and probably a high light of my trip. Hopefully I will post some beautiful images while away.......

Theo and Joe collection

We are very excited to have the latest pieces from the Theo & Joe Home Collection on show at our Brickwork's store.
The twig inspired lamps in two sizes give a relaxed coastal feel which is complimented by black shades for subdued mood lighting.
Made from carved wood the dear horn style chandelier is sure to invite conversation in any home, again finished in black shades for added detail.

New retro sofa instore

We have just finished unpacking this retro inspired sofa for our showroom. The piped edges, buttons and bolster really give it a cool edge, perfect for apartment living or a sleek modern home.

A little bit of Ralph

We have just received these gorgeous Ralph Lauren cushions. From the Riviera collection they look perfectly at home on our vintage inspired leather chair.

Bold new look

This week we have installed a new window display. The black and white stripes make a bold statement and I love the yellow accent which is very uplifting on such a grey rainy week we are having here.

Raffles inspired

Today we received our new rattan collection. Inspired by the Raffles Hotel in Singapore I can just imagine sitting there surrounded by palms, cool breezes and a Singapore Sling in my hand......... sounds like summer to me.

Cool lighting

I'm loving this pendant spot light! With a hospital / industrial feel and light direction adjustable its a truly striking piece.
