I am beyond thrilled to share with you something that I’ve been working on for the past year – my new book, Beautiful Life. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for what seems like forever and finally, it’s ready!

I have written this book to help you on your journey to transform your home into the foundation that supports your own ‘beautiful life’.

What’s in a Beautiful Life?

In Beautiful Life I share design advice and practical tips to help you on your journey to transform your home into the home you want and deserve. Let’s face it, not everyone is going to engage an interior designer!

While writing this book, I realised that I’ve lived in over twenty homes in my lifetime – each one of them different to the previous – and in each, I found contentment and joy by creating a beautiful home.

Were they beautiful to other people? Maybe! Maybe not… More often than not, they weren’t perfectly styled or decorated. Instead, they were me at that particular stage of my life. It was this ingredient that made each home unique and a success in supporting the lifestyle for myself and my family – through both the ups and downs that life inevitably serves up.


In this book, I’ll help lead you through the process of building your own ‘beautiful life’ – in a way that’s meaningful for you. I focus on practical solutions as well as pleasing aesthetics, in room-specific chapters that give expert advice for couples, families and empty nesters. I believe it’s these transitions through the stages of life that impact the way we use our homes.

I also include a few Feng Shui tips for each room. Although I’m not a master in the traditional Chinese practice, I did study it in the final year of my bachelor degree. And a lot of the principles struck me at the time of learning, and have stuck with me since, because of the way they fundamentally complement the interior design decision-making process.


While working through the book, you’ll discover how to apply design principles and Feng Shui principles to each room in an easy-to-understand way, so you can create and choose what’s right for you and your family.

Who is a Beautiful Life for?

This book is for everyone who believes their home contributes to their own idea of a happy and beautiful life – whether you’re renting, own your home or are renovating a new home.

If you’re renting, there are plenty of tips to inspire you for the future, and for decorating and adding finishing touches to your rental. You’ll be able to lift a neutral palette and breathe beautiful life into your temporary abode.

If you’re in your own home, or renovating a new home, a Beautiful Life can help you make design decisions that will bring function, beauty and even a touch of luxury into your life. You’ll feel confident in your decision-making knowing that your home will ultimately suit your lifestyle and the way you want to live in it.

Whichever stage of life you’re at, Beautiful Life is the essential design book to help you create your beautiful home today.


Thank You

On a more personal note, I’d like to thank you for following along with my journey since my early days of design in Canberra. I’ve had amazing clients, some who have become lifelong friends.

I’m so grateful to each and every one of you, showing up, reading my emails, liking my posts, reading my blogs. Without you this certainly wouldn’t have been possible and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.

Love Lisa
