Luscious Timber

This post is just a nod to beautiful , rich natural timber . Most of the images are stunning furniture pieces by Mark Tuckey , whose store on the Northern beaches is well known. His   whose simple designs and respect for the material  speaks for itself. Enjoy…..


Crisp, solid bedhead – to fit any room, let the bedlinen define the style.

Mark-Tuckey-12The Coffee table anchors the space and just as a side comment … what  about that artwork !!


This room is light and bright, yet still has a warmth to it as well. The sofa with the solid  timber frame just screams comfort yet practicality  – perfect for a big crowd – or stretching out  – just you.

dining eames chairsThe circular dining table is a well known design by Mark Tuckey. Love it teamed with these Eames dining chairs. Once a gain timeless.


This Bathroom vanity is so individual – love the fact you can display or store whatever takes your fancy below and this too helps define the style of the bathroom – keep it neutral or add splashes of colour .


Another fabulous bed – love  the solid timber bedside stool as well. Basic black and white never disappoints!

This shot gives a taste of all things Mark Tuckey – Living , Dining, storage.

Definitely is a unique, high quality and timeless brand – Australian made and a great source of inspiration and ideas. Love it !


Design to Die for…

Just a series of gorgeous rooms that took my eye . They seem to have a common theme of pops of colour and texture against a white or neutral back drop.
