New original works by Bibianaandco online now x
GUESS WHAT? I'm taking you on a wee house tour! Come on inside for a sneaky peek into my fam bam's beach abode, where I will show you how to live your BEST life in COLOUR.
Over the next few weeks I will reveal some of my favourite rooms- and the best part? If you love it- you can shop it ! Head to our site for the all the deets- funnnnn!
GINORMOUS thanks and shout out to Jaz and Mikey @socialisephoto

and the one and ONLY @armellehabib.

Doin’ it for the kids? And why not, teaching them good styling habits early on will hold them in good stead for when they move into their own homes, right? (if they EVER leave home???) My recent teen makeover for @duluxaus
was all kinds of fabulous fun! A soft apricot backdrop (Wash&Wear in Apricot Fool) did not deter me for one millisecond from adding accents of bold clashing colours. That is what this Forecast ‘Identity’ palette is alllll about – the rules were made to be broken! TIP – If you are unsure of what makes a ‘good’ clash, @duluxaus
has done the hard work for you! Head straight to their website www.dulux.com.au to see fool-proof groupings of colour that will never let the side down. And a video on how to recreate the look. Get to it team!
Sunny side up always ...

We’re smitten with these fab new original works by Amber Kingi - GI’s latest art recruit ! Amber’s original silhouette paintings are super sweet and hark back to the simple pleasures to be found in life ...like puppy love . We hope you love them too - all the deets are online under brands / Amber Kingi x
If you LOVE colour like we do - and happen to be partial to the odd floral too- then Fleur Woods Hand stitched beauties are lovingly made just for you . On our site amongst a whole lotta other joyous art finds !
TEENS– you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them. Trust me, I have one so speak with some semblance of authority. But one thing I do know is that teens have opinions, and claim ownership like no others in the household, so before you attempt a makeover of their space, check for their buy-in! Once you’ve got approval go hard on the pattern clash, the surprising colour combinations, the bold and the beautiful, all the while allowing their personality to shine through. Check out this BEFORE AND AFTER (swipe) We had a ball creating a riot of colour clashes from the @duluxaus
Forecast ‘Identity’ palette – there were NO rules, which is uncanny and VERY unlike parenting teenagers!
Tap for suppliers x
Hey there! Have we met? I don't normally invite strangers into my house, but I'm hoping you will join me on a little video series we are launching this Friday, that will show you inside the four walls of my colourful family abode one room at a time, and one week at a time! You will be able to shop the house too, as its full of GI gems of course !
So I'll put the kettle on and we can catch up then! Can't wait to see you, x JG

Gotta say - as much as I love travelling - I think I love coming home even more . Opening our front door to this riot of colour - smelling the sea air again - and of course a helluva sloppy drool-drenched reunion with our beloved fur ball of a hound, Mr Wolf ! And now it’s off to our own beds . Heaven . BRISVEGAS you were great but Barwon Heads - you are home and that is where the heart is. X

Ps I know I’ll be asked - that cactus came back in my suitcase from Morocco and I swear almost caused a divorce. As much as my husband would be happy to see it leave the building - it ain’t for sale . Getting it home ALMOST killed me ! The rest you can get on our site !
Crash. Bang. Colour.

Now back to that Aperol Spritz on this pale blue kickarse leather lounger! Sigh.
These may rate as my fave shelves ever . The colours .. the composition .. the errrrythang.
I never have time to scroll Insta like this ... but whilst sipping Prosecco in the lobby of @thecalilehotel
one must indulge in some quiet but colourful time , right ? Back to the madness and mayhem tomorrow . Boooooooo!! X
