Stores | Brentwood Interiors

I stumbled upon this little gem last weekend as I was wondering around aimlessly waiting for my hubby to finish at the mechanic. Brentwood is the type of store a gal could get lost in- both for the amount of goods on display, but also because the store is so damn pretty. The owner has 10+ years of design experience under her belt, and it really shows in the way the store has been put together.

It’s filled to the brim with home decor such as pretty pillows, Glasshouse candles, pictures, mirrors and flowers, as well as French/country style furnishings such as bed side tables, outdoor tables and chairs, and side boards. The flavour sits within the French provincial school of thought peppered with modern delights. It also boasts a pretty tidy collection of books- coffee table designer books, cook books, interior styling and so on.

If you’re looking for any last minute gifts, the store also stocks jewelry as well as items from the divine MOR collection.

If you ever buy one magazine…

Make it Real Living. 

I guess it depends on your style but this magazine inspires me each and every time. I’ve flicked through others, including Home Beautiful and Vogue Living but keep coming back to this. Probably my obsession with all things industrial and french provincial. Another bonus is everything used in the mag is listed, which means finding suppliers or tracking down an item is super easy. I usually keep a notebook close by while reading to jot down anything of interest.

If you’re looking to renovate like me, it’s a great idea to keep a renovation scrapbook for anything you love while reading or online. Just pick up a pretty folder, put in some tabs divided either by room, or by accessory for a room (sinks, benchtops, cabinets) and hey presto! Guess it’s like an old school Google Reader.
